Hi Mike,
thanks for attempting to sort it out, and yes your conclusion is right, there were a fair few George Herberts haha !

You are due my apologies, my last "summary" post was incomplete; I posted the 1864 marriage of George b1821 to Sophia Grindle within my earlier posts about their Grandson soldier Stanley Herbert. I also gave some of her earlier records and mentioned their other children, sorry for not being clearer in my summary post.

Regarding the Ruardean Burial Record you found from 1864, just to confuse things further GlosBMD has these records, but which (if any) fits the PR ?

Death Details
Surname Given Names Age Year Died District Register Entry
HERBERT George 4m 1864 Westbury on Severn, Newnham 12 484

Death Details
Surname Given Names Age Year Died District Register Entry
HERBERT George 2 1864 Westbury on Severn, Newnham 12 478

That same year alone two Geo Herberts were born within the FoD according to GlosBMD, and a few more in 1863, 1865 and so on...

As you say, these all go to emphasise just how many George Herberts there were born around this time, not to mention the other lads with George as just one of their fore/middle names.

Ah well, thanks for having a go at this puzzle.
