Before 1875 there was no penalty for non registration of births so he may not have been reg.

Would recommend getting the marriage cert

Thank you all replies, but I know it states London as his birthplace but have rang a Registrars in Marylebone I think it was and have no record. Leicester has no ecord either. Moreton was where he lived but dont believe it was his birthplace.

You need to buy the marriage cert - hopefully his father's details will be given.
