Have you found his birth on FreeBMD to see the maiden name of mother ?

Then tried to go backwards to find a possible marriage.

Although it has been crossed out the image says James has been married 28 years and 5 children born all still living.


Perhaps James and Elizabeth were not free to marry and that is why you haven't found their marriage.

I wonder if this is the marriage for the above James Waterman?

Marriages Mar 1892

BUTCHER Alice Mary Lewisham 1d 1153
McNAB Jessie Lewisham 1d 1153
Waterman James Henry Lewisham 1d 1153
Waterman Sydney Alfred Lewisham 1d 1153


Sydney married Alice Mary Butcher as they are together on the 1911 census.

Not seeing James and Jessie together at the moment.
