Have you tried looking on censuses for a Samuel?

What did Hugh say about his father's occupation?

Who witnessed the marriage?

The problem is.......Samuel might have been a name he made up because he didn't actually know who his Father was.

I can't seem to find Jane Sydengham born 1833 Hornsey Middlesex on the 1891 census.

Was wondering if Hugh was with her in 1891.

I have a hugh houghton b1883-6 marriage certifcate to Sarah jane Houghton and it states Hugh's father as a Samuel Houghton but cannot find any census's with him on or birth results marriage cerificate state that he was born in birmingham, no death certificate as he died at sea but 1917 records are lost can anyone point me in any direction, one that fits is a hugh Houghton in 1911 census but that says he's an adopted son where do i go from here :-S :-S :-S
