William Austin married Elizabeth Gates and after her death Sarah Ann Cornwell.  I originally thought his Father was James Austin but marriage certificate to Sarah Ann states Thomas.  Can anyone confirm Thomas is correct and possible find his Mother's name. Thank you

The siblings of William Austin in his profile are all listed as being born in Little Shelford, Cambridgeshire with the parish register recording all as the children of James Austin & Elizabeth. Indeed there is another child, William Austin baptised 20 August 1820, Little Shelford the son of James & Elizabeth.

Census records however reveal that the William Austin whose marriages are included in this profile (Austin-4153) was born in Hawkshead or Cantebury Kent. Unfortunately no parish record I caan trace reveals his parents. His siblings you record, I am afraid are incorrect.
