George Gibbs - b.Hungerford lived Marlborough

south uk
Hello everyone,

I have been researching the Gibbs line for a number of years, however I have been stuck for a while.
My 4x Great grandfather was George Gibbs b. Hungerford in 1809.

I have found his details on the 1841,1851,1861,1871,1881 census'. He lived with his family at 42 High street Marlborough(I have visited the property as it is still there). He is listed on the census' and his children’s wedding certificates as being a Tailor.

Unfortunately I have been unable to find any birth record for George, or any means of finding out what his parents names are which is stopping me from furthering my research.

I have contacted the various Tailor guilds but they were unable to find any record of him.

I have found a George Gibbs born in Lambourne which is very close to Hungerford, however this George was born in 1816. A friend who is a researcher suggested maybe it could be this George and he lied about his age (6 years different) otherwise Mary wouldn't have been interested in him and married him. It seems probable, however there is no concrete evidence and its just a speculation that doesn't sit 100% with me.

I was wondering if anyone has any ideas?
I appreciate other peoples brick walls are not always very interesting, however I'd appreciate any ideas!
