please name names dates places and the rest of us could retrace your,
and his, steps
about 25% of children born before 1875 were not registered
because there was no penalty for failure to so
so head for parish or chapel registers
My parents moved to Solihull when I was one year old so I have no
memory of my birthplace Sutton Coldfiled
have you tracd the family in all seven censuses?

His family (siblings) give Wales as a birth place and they did indeed live there many, many years. If a famly was in the process of moving and the baby came at a bad time, could they indeed register him after the move, elsewhere? Boy if it is yes, then I found him!
