Hi Glen,


The next step would to be order the marriage certificates for Henry and Thomas they will have the fathers name and occupation, once you have these then the next thing would be their birth certificates which will confirm the fathers name. To me it looks as Thomas A snr may be nephew to Henry, this is why certificates are need to confirm parentage. The mothers maiden name will be entered on one of the childrens births certificates this will help to find the marriage.
