if anyone can work out who is the father of (Arthur) George (Junior) Herbert born Brierley (so near Ruardean Hill & Drybrook East Dean c1868 then PLEASE tell me, thanks.

Despite finding several records of him in the Census' etc, as per the previous posts, unless I'm missing the obvious (quite possible) then I'm struggling with this, and that's even after drawing the various trees out on paper !.

In theory (I think) his father will be the son of George b1821, but who is that son ???

TO ME IT NOW APPEARS LIKELY HIS FATHER IS JOHN BORN c1852, so aged 15/16 at the time ???

(I think...)

So well before John married his first? wife Mary Emily Rivers in 1886, and eventually had son Stanley in 1864 etc.
