Think this is the marriage (from familysearch.org) she is consideraly older than him.

Sorry, what is FMP?

Flip

Flip Report 7 Oct 2013 11:43

If you're using FMP you should also be able to see Philip Henry 24/1/1847 and possible for Sarah - Sarah Ellen 14/7/1850 (I can see the transcripts on familysearch, but images available on FMP)

I've just found Fanny's christening date of 7/5/1843 and Eliza is still unmarried.

Just took a look at the 1851 image - mother Eliza was unmarried, and there is this christening for older sister Ann

The census record is from Ancestry, when he showed up as their lodger I looked for him to see if he was actually brother in law as the Fanny I found getting married was a Butler.

I think Francis Alfred was called Frank on the later census, I'll take another look - yes he's on the 1901 census that was posted earlier in the thread.

I think Francis Alfred may have died as a baby or been adopted out, as I can't find him again.

Flip Report 7 Oct 2013 08:46

I think it may stem back to the birth of Alfred's father,

Births Jun 1845 (>99%)

DODD George Nantwich 19 164

and the subsequent marriage of parents (reg Sept qtr 1845)?

DODD Maria PALIN George Nantwich, St Mary & St Nicholas Cheshire Central 1066/1/286

Looks like George jnr also married under the name Dodd:

Thank you so much everyone for your time - I see you are all as confused as me, now. I'm beginning to think that the rumour of him changing his name is very true, but when and why it happened remains a mystery, and it does make tracing his ancestors rather difficult.

The only Alfred Palin birth in Nantwich was in June qtr 1870, but a death reg in Sept qtr. So I don't think Alfred was registered under Palin.
