James Brown

My g grandfather was James Brown possibly born in Kent.
He had an oil and paint shop on Chatsworth Road Hackney in the 1901 census where his name is James Holloway. He changed the family name around 1900, don't know why.
He was married in 1888 to Sarah Davey in Deptford. His daughter, my grandmother, Alice Maud was born in 1888 in Paddington, Caroline was born in 1889, William 1894 and James 1895. James died in Hackney in 1922.
I cannot find James's birth, in the 1889 census his birthplace is Kent, in 1901 it is Clapton and in 1911 it is Bexley Kent.
His father was also James, a tanner, info from James and Sarah marriage cert.

Any tips on finding a birth date for James then I can find his mother's name etc.

Many thanks.
