There was no formal adoption then but Peter raised him and John must have thought it appropriate to name as his father on his marriage but as you say, preferred his birth name.

I wonder what happened to his sister, Ellen?  I've not found an early death/burial so far, but I may have missed it.

Good find  :)

I was looking for an earlier one.

Add - interesting that they used Alice's maiden name.
