Thanks Keith.

A late baptism or one died young and another named James.

One more possible mmn

AXON, JAMES - SWINDELLS
GRO Reference: 1838 D Quarter in STOCKPORT Volume 19 Page 205

There should be a daughter Ann aged 11 in 1851. And no matching mmn.

James in 1851 is aged 9.

Do we have 2x James & Elizabeth? One with a son James born before 1841 census and one with a son James born after 1841 census ?

Not sure Keith.

Depends if Handley is correct in census. It points to the correct RD.

Thanks Keith.

I think we have 2x families with a son James.

I think the 1851 census is correct.

Any other children baptised at Handley?

I can't even find the baptism in the first post or the marriage.

Thanks Keith.

I have the list but not the images.

Siblings
Frances 1 Dec 1833
Eleanor 11 Aug 1836
Ann 9 June 1839
Aaron 28 April 1844
Eliza 17 Jan 1847
William 8 April 1849
Elizabeth 7 Sept 1857

I didn't find the marriage in the PR or BT.

James Axon a common name in Cheshire and I did find some marriages but a long way from Handley.
