I can't readily see a marriage between William Gough and Sarah Newton.  FreeBMD - using William Gough and surname Newton - shows no results.
It's all so strange

The only 1871 entry shows a Sarah Thurston b 1836 Ealing living with a Francis Robinson Thurston (not Robert) in Derbyshire?  Son William Edward b 1860 Notting Hill

Francis Robinson Thurston married in 1879 - but not to Sarah
Yes, Francis was living with his mum in Suffolk when William was born, no marriage between them

Welcome to RootsChat,

Really sorry, but William and Sarah may not have married.  My great grandfather had 17 children with two different women, neither of whom he married. One of the children has the mother's name on the registration, but the others were all registered with his name.  This was at the same time period that you have indicated.

Thank you. Thats a thought, obviously cant go by named people on the birth certificate. Williams father is named as is the mother with formley Newton. This family is really a mystery, I've been stuck on it for over 3 years now.
