William and Hannah Parker

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for some detail from 1851 & 1861 census for William Parker b. abt. 1823 in Birmingham and his wife Hannah born abt. 1827 in Birmingham. There first child I believe was named Frederick b. abt. 1852.

Thank you
Parker is a common name in Warwickshire with 4x Frederick born around 1852.

Not finding this easy. 3x marriages 1849 - 1850 for William to a Hannah in Warwickshire.

Only one William & Hannah in 1851 in Warwickshire - 1 child * and not 3 families.

Only one William & Hannah in 1861 in Warwickshire - 5 children, 3 born before 1851.

There must be some census records missing or mistranscribed.

I only have FamilySearch so this needs someone with other sites for census search.

Some census records for 1851 probably mistranscribed on FS.

There is a marriage for a William Parker and Hannah Horton in 1849.

They Married 27/08/1849 St George Birmingham

Father's Samuel Parker and Richard Horton.

Another of the marriage's has William b1810 at Aston St Peter and St Paul so that one can be discounted.

Can't see information about the other marriage.

This is the family in 1851 Dave:

William Parker 29
Birth year: abt 1822
Relation: Head
Spouse's Name: Hannah Parker
Gender: Male
Where born: Birmingham, Warwickshire, England
Civil Parish: Aston
Ecclesiastical parish: St Matthew
County/Island: Warwickshire
Country: England
Registration district: Aston
Sub-registration district: Duddeston
ED, institution, or vessel: 08
Household schedule number: 63
Piece: 2061
Folio: 166
Page Number: 16
William Parker 29
Hannah Parker 25
Thomas Parker 6
William Parker 3
James Parker 10 Mo

3x marriages 1849 - 1850 for William to a Hannah in Warwickshire but I can only find this family in 1851 in FS that look to have married just before the census.

HO107 Piece 2071 Folio 302 Page 11
Event Place Hampton Arden & Hamlet of Balsall, Warwickshire
Registration District Solihull
Marital Status Married
Occupation Ag Labourer
William Parker Head M 24 Berkswell, Warwickshire
Hannah Parker Wife F 25 Offchurch, Warwickshire
Emma Parker Daughter F 8 MOS Cublington, Warwickshire

7x Frederick born Warwickshire 1850 - 1855 in 1861 census and only one with parents William and Hannah.
The census posted.

So, does that mean 2 marriages for William? Or are we missing a census from 1851 and 1861?
