I had already seen the Downey baptisms on familysearch, but I don't think there is a connection to my William Downer, as the baptisms only mention a mother's name, whereas my William's marriage certificate only mentions his father's name, Henry. The last of the Downey baptisms occurred in 1835, when William would have been 15 years old, so surely he would have known his mother's name also?

That would explain that then. Still, most of the baptism records I have seen include the father's name in full, and then only the mother's first name, if she is mentioned at all.

The children of Jane were all illeg so only Mothers name shown.

As I said earlier the M/C of 1846 has William Henrys Downers Father as WILLIAM** not Henry (dead)


Illeg children often lied on their marriage certs.
