An error in my tree.

This can't be the right one with William born 1844:

HO107 Piece 354 Book/Folio 16/5 Page 5

Hundred: Crowthorne and Minty
County: Gloucestershire

Elmer Dix Wife 50 [Eleanor]
Eliza Dix 15
Thos Dix 13

The LEWIS marriage is correct

I can't see a birth reg around 1844 that fits for William and I can't find him in 1851 or 1861.

Births Mar 1844
Lewis Mary Ann Bristol 11 162

Births Sep 1844
