Bit more info on the marriages that Gins posted above -

There are no father's details given for William George Squibb which implies he was illegitimate. His occupation was bricklayer.

Florence Emily was 20, her father was a railway porter.

Neither of them were previously married. The witnesses were Henry Squibb and Rose Puckett.
..................................................................................................................

Edward George Bridle was a dairyman from Malcombe Regis, his father was a labourer.

Mabel Lavinia was 20 and from Martinstown, her father a coachman.

First marriage for both.

Witnesses were A Elliott and WJ Cooper (the latter is on a few pages so was probably a "professional" witness and not a relative).

Not finding a baptism. There's a tree on Ancestry has his mother as Mary J but no reliable records or sources attached.

I was wondering about this 1881, especially as a Henry Squibb was a witness at his marriage, could little Geo be William George?:

SQUIBB, Willm Head Widower M 48 1833 Carpenter Preston, Dorset
SQUIBB, Mary Daughter Single F 25 1856 Employd Home Preston, Dorset
SQUIBB, Willm Son Single M 20 1861 Carpenter Preston, Dorset
SQUIBB, Henry Son Single M 13 1868 Scholar Preston, Dorset
SQUIBB, James Son Single M 10 1871 Scholar Preston, Dorset
SQUIBB, Geo Son Single M 2 1879 Preston, Dorset
BASKETT, Geo Visitor Single M 25 1856 General Lab Stokeford ((Nk))

Piece: 2103 Folio: 89 Page: 11
Registration District: Weymouth
Civil Parish: Preston

Address: Sutton Pointz, Preston County: Dorsetshire

Wondering if the daughter Mary is actually his mother?

There's a family of Pucketts a few doors away.
..............................................................................................................

This is the same family in 1871, note middle initials:

SQUIBB, Robert Head M 82 1789 Dorset - Carpenter, b Monkton
SQUIBB, William R Son M 39 1832 Dorset - Carpenter
SQUIBB, Mary Ann Son's Wife F 40 1831 Dorset
SQUIBB, Mary J Granddaughter F 16 1855 Dorset
SQUIBB, William R Grandson M 10 1861 Dorset
SQUIBB, John F Grandson M 7 1864 Dorset
SQUIBB, Henry S Grandson M 3 1868 Dorset
SQUIBB, James J Grandson M 1 1870 Dorset

Piece: 1999 Folio: 82 Page: 12

All born Preston apart from Robert

This may be the death of William R's wife:

Age: 42
Burial Date: 19 Jun 1873

I think this 1891 ties a few things together:

BASKETT, George Head Married M 35 1856 General Labourer Stoke, Dorsetshire
BASKETT, Mary Wife Married F 34 1857 Laundress Sutton, Dorsetshire
SQUIBB, George Son M 12 1879 Sutton, Dorsetshire

Piece: 1645 Folio: 89 Page: 9
Registration District: Weymouth
Civil Parish: Preston
Municipal Borough: Weymouth & Melcombe Regis

Address: Weymouth Road, Preston, Weymouth & Melcombe Regis
County: Dorsetshire

George Baskett was a lodger with the Squibbs in 1881.
