George and Hannah Duxbury (married) both 25 years presumed older Brother of James living with during of Census, listed in a different entry

John of Riston??
Thomas – Born 1819? – Blackburn Wife Ann Hurst-got certificate
James – Born 1858? – Burnley – On Census
George – Born – 1893 – Burnley – Got Birth Certificate
James – Born – 1922 – Blantyre – Got Birth Certificate
Geoff – Born – 1951 – Sheffield - That’s me

I would love a copy of the any records of James and Thomas’s Birth, Christening, . This was prior to Certificates and Registration which started in 1837 I believe. The grey text is what I have added.
The D.O.B with ? after them are only estimated and could be out by a year either way.
I colour coded them because in our family there are so many James, Thomas and George it gets confusing sometimes.
If Thomas is the one listed on the web site as being born in 1920 then this relates my part of the back as far as Ulf de Duxbury 1120 AD
