    William James GOODMAN married Flora Alice POWELL 10 Jan 1887

    1891 Census they are listed (RG12/2234/171/274)
    William G. GOODMAN Aged 30, Journeyman Brewer, Wolverhampton
    Flora A. Aged 24, Wolverhampton
    Ann E. Aged 6, Wolverhampton
    Charlie Aged 13 Months-Wolverhampton
    Henry J. Aged 3 days, Wolverhampton

    There is also
    Arthur GOODMAN aged 6 listed as Grandson living with Flora’s parents RG12/2236/50/19

    Both Ann E and Arthur are aged 6 which means they would have been born before the marriage of William and Flora
    There is an entry on the GRO indexes for Annie Elizabeth POWELL with no MMN

    Other than the entry on the 1891 Census I have not been able to find any other record for Arthur.

    It would make sense that they maybe were twins but why register one and then another

    Arthur John baptised 18 Aug 1866, parents Thomas and Matilda. Died 1931, buried Merridale. (familysearch). May fit into the Wolverhampton Goodmans somewhere.

    (Just found this particular baptism on FMP and had to laugh at the father's occupation... he's the registrar of births etc. HE would know the answer to all the above!)

    Thinking outside the box, have you thought that they were not twins but children of 2 different mother in the same family, born in the same quarter which is why they were not registered at the same time?

    He was buried in Heath Town Church graveyard and was from Church Street Heath Town, which is unlikely given the locations in the census
