I am seriously stuck with my husbands Great Grandfather
his name was William Thomas Read aka Thomas Reid born bet 1858 and 1863 either in Herefordshire (pos Madley) or Bristow in Breconshire his father is allegedly William Read a farmer.
I have found him in every census from 1891-1911 but he has a different age and birth place each time. I have his wedding cert and all the birth certificates of his children, but I can't find him before his marriage in 1890.
Can anyone help?

Thanks I had found both of these but discounted the first as he was know as william and as thomas which seems a bit weird to call yourself after your brother! The second on I will look into further.
