Do you know when/where he died to ascertain his year of birth? What part of the world were they from?

The marriage certificate is going to be the most reliable way to trace him.

If this is the correct marriage then it doesn't give an indication of a middle name for him:

I know that Florence was married to John Eccles, she was my great-aunt, they had 3 boys:- Thomas, Robert and John ,but the rest of the family dosent know anything about their Eccles ancestors due to a rift in the family many years ago ,so I thought I would ask on her as you are all so fantastic at finding thing s out.. They were all born in Barrow. Many thanks for helping me, now I can try to find some things out on here myself, just needed a helping hand from all of you out there :-)

No sign of a marriage between James and Elizabeth

Flip Report 13 Sep 2013 12:15

No, I can't find one either - and the only child registered on cumbriabmd is John, 1858 - giving mmn Hewartson, so maybe Elizabeth was not previously married when Isabella was born.

Reggie

Reggie Report 13 Sep 2013 14:19

I can't see either of them in 1851............failing miserably with this one!

And no baptism for Isabella on familysearch..............all very frustrating
