Changing names

Hi all

My gg grandfather was registered at birth as Edward Thomas Tyler in 1852. His mother was Martha Tyler and father was left blank.

This came as a bit of a surprise as I thought he was born a Patten. He is Patten on his marriage cert and on the 1871 census(cant find the 1861 one). His fathers name on the marriage cert is Edward Patten(deceased). On the 1851 census Martha is living as a lodger with Edward Patten.

I suppose my question is- can I find out when and where he changed his name.
