    Edward was born around 1844-1845 in Clun, Shropshire according to the two censuses I have found him on.

    He married Mary Ann Marpole in the Leominster R.D. in 1868. Mary Ann was originally from Beguildy, Radnorshire

    1871 - RG10, Piece 2729, Folio 32, Page 2
    Hamlet of Bicton, Bicton, Clun, Shropshire

    Says born 1845 - Salop, Clun Town

    1881 - RG11 , Piece 2619, Folio 39, Page 18
    Bicton, Clun, Shropshire

    Says born 1944 - Clun Shropshire

    Edward's death is registered in Clun in 1915. Mary Ann died in Clun in 1923

    I can't seem to find them on 1891 census or any trace of Edward prior to the 1871 census.

    1891 - try Buxton RG12/2085/19/31 (FMP)
    Woorog, Rockhill, Clun
    the original looks like Bufton

    Buxton, now I can't usually read censuses but even I could see that the original says Bufton.

    Thank you @MollyMay - I would never have found that one. I also get to add another child, james.

    Have you tried an earlier birth date 1840 +- 5? There is one Edward in Shobden,Herefordshire with James & Elizabeth etc. b.1840
    HO107-426-6-page8-book 22

    In 1851 with James & Ann now a nephew b.abt 1841
    HO107-1981-Folio-505-Page23

    Not knowing parent names makes it difficult, as their is another Edward Rattling around in Rattlingshire but he seems to have married an ELizabeth.

    Following close is this one

    Could be them Ma, I can't be sure without Edward and Mary Ann's marriage cert and I've already spent enough on this family.

    That was who I was assuming (not a good thing to do) his parents were but he is not on that census as it was before he was born and can find no trace of them in Clun in 1851.

    There is this birth:-


    Births Jun 1844
    BUFF*N Edward - Clun - 18 - 51

    I know all the other children of Edmund and Jane had the MMN Sherrey but can't get this one to show on the GRO main site. It says it needs a valid surname.

    Woohoo you little beaut {-(^^)-}, that will do just fine.

    Thank you too @Ma-dotcom for finding the censuses.

    When Edmond died in 1854 his name is entered as Buftan Edmun
