Jacobs, Wilton, Wiltshire

I dont know if anyone can help me here, I have hit a huge brick wall with this lot!! Jacobs is my Mums Dads side of the family and i am finding it hard to find any info on them, but as i am quiet new to this i think i am just looking in the wrong areas.
My Grandfather was Henry Charles Jacobs b 7/7/1899 Lambeth parents James Jacobs and Eliza Ann Allberry. James Jacobs my born 1864 London civil parish St George the Martyr Ecclessiatical Parish of St Michal reg district St Saviour, Southwark. James parents were Geroge Frederick Jacobs and Mary Ann Robertson Married 21.2.1860 St John the Baptist Shoreditch London. George was born in Salisbury, Wiltshire, (or Surrey according to records) 1831. Mary Ann's parents i am lead to believe were Charles Robertson and Mary Ann Bant.
This is where i have got lost. This is the info i have on George's parents but not 100% sure if i have it correct and trying to work back from here.

Hi Dee,

Have you Georges marriage certificate to clarify who his father is and fathers occupation. Seeing that George was born before civil registration, has he any siblings that were born from say fom mid 1837 when civil registration started their birth certificate will give you the parents names, fathers occ and mothers maiden name as well as the family address.
Hi Julie
