What info do you need from the Death Certificate? Happy to oblige but..
I can't see how that helps as to where he was pre 1808?

It may help find him in 1851.  Was there a house number.  Who was the informant, did they have a different address

1841 is not always reliable with county of birth so it would be good to locate him in 1851

The James and Thomas in the 1851 Census are Thomas's sons

Re John Yates the witness to the 1808 marriage
I see there is a John Yates (labourer) in the 1841 Census living in Little James Street, Marylebone
the same Street as Thomas and other members of his family

Rest assured I have tried over many many years to find Thomas in the 1851 Census....to no avail

He died at 25 Little James Street, Marylebone on 4th November 1859. The death was witnessed by his daughter-in-law Elizabeth Armstrong who lived at 6, Little James Street

What names did Thomas & Sarah give their children.  What were the first names of Sarah's parents.

Have I missed a post that gives Thomas's occupation  :-\

In looking for where Thomas was prior to his marriage in 1808

I have always thought that the opening of Grand Union Canal - Paddington Basin in 1801
was important. As it would have provided much new employment and perhaps greatly added to the population of the Lisson Grove area of Marylebone.
Thomas could have moved into the area at thet time...but I have no evidence whatsoever to support this!!

Thank you  :)

I wonder who Joseph was to warrant two of the boys having the name.

The first child with a Joseph christian name died in infancy under a year old.
