He could not have gotten married at the tender age of five years of age. I love it when a plan comes together.

I hope that is not the case, but it might be the case.
It is not impossible to have an early marriage recorded, although that it probably not the case here, assuming the children are correct. Marriages of young children could be contracted for political or financial reasons, but not be consummated until they came of age.
At the age of five years, really.
This was all fiddled to connect his wife to the Astleys, who owned the manor.  She's been disconnected, but she's still called Astley.  Dunno if there's any evidence for that.  But her dates are liable to be unreliable.
Based on the birthdates of her children, her marriage date is correct. His birth date is incorrect. It is about 1458,not 1475.
Sometimes there was a marriage contract when children were even younger than five. That date could land in the marriage date field if the date of the actual marriage is not known (and the marriage ceremony could still happen years before the marriage could be consumated).

Not the case here, apparently.
