I have been unable to find the birth of the above child.
On the 1891 census he is listed as being 11 months old so should be born 1890 to parents Benjamin Herbert Stray and Edith Maud Murray.
There is a john henry Stray born 1890 who I had down as Henry John but using the GRO which gives mothers Maiden name as Price - so wrong one.
Tried every which way but no luck. I think the parents emigrated in 1906 to Canada with no sign of Henry John Stray!

Any ideas:rolleyes:

One thought Peter.

Marriage in June Q 1890 and 1891 census on 5 April so was the birth registered?

Can't see it registered as Murray and can't see a later birth reg or a baptism. I have several recently found ones in my tree with no birth reg and just a baptism.

Deaths Sep 1890
Stray John Henry 0 Shoreditch 1c 61

Census on FS has the name as Henry F.

STRAY, HERBERT HUGH MELVILLE - MURRAY
GRO Reference: 1891 S Quarter in CAMBERWELL Volume 01D Page 885

Thanks Dave but if that's the record then it would have been late with child 11months at census taking!
If you couldn't find a Murray as that was my last thought.

Just found a possible Jun quarter 1890 ST Saviour 1d 164 Henry Frederick Murray.
GRO just has a dash for mothers maiden name :rolleyes:

So that could be the one.

Looks like the Murray one Peter. With the date of the marriage and 11 months old in 1891 I was thinking birth before marriage.

Herbert is the 2nd, found while searching with mmn MURRAY around that time.
