I believe that this is my GGGrand Father , I have been having the same problem as you. I believe that he was born in Belgium/Germany ( although why his mother was there I do not know ) and then returned to the area where the family originated , Salford,Lancashire.

This might be my ggg grandmother's brother. She was Sarah née Bennington, also born in Belgium around this time. Also could never find further explanation.
