Looking for anything further back on James Chapman born Eltham? 1901/2.  He married Agnes Sarah Ayling dob Feb 1902 in 1926 in Eltham.   His mother's name unknown.
According to stories he may have been born out of wedlock to gentry, but marriage cert has his father as a labourer also James Chapman. (Also not found)
No known siblings. 
Thankyou for any info. if found

Annoyingly I can see Agnes on 1939, as married, but James not with her. Was hoping to get an exact dob for him.  Any idea where he was? Or what he did for a living?

The marriage was 26 Dec 1926, so right at the end of the year, so chances are he would have had his birthday for 1926. As he says he is 25, assuming he has that right, then one would estimate his year of birth to be 1901.

The only one I can see vaguely in that area in 1911 is a son of James and Ellen, living in Limehouse
Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
Kemp - Essex
Farrington - Essex
Boniface - West Sussex

Thanks for that quick research!  Equally annoying is why I can't pinpoint him, as in the first message, that's all we have on him! Not even a dob.   
I'll certainly research the Limehouse link.

Ignore my previous post, just realised you have that information  ::)

Possible birth if he is thought to be illegitimate?
