birth date above is actually baptism date

Birthdate is unlikely to be forthcoming, as there were no birth certificates at that period, and only the baptism was recorded.

He married Mary Ann Portlock ( father Andree Portlock and mother Elizabeth Rowe) they lived in North Street, Bedminster, on the 1841 and 1851 census returns. A lodger by the name of Mary Ann Showell was living with them, in 1851, she is also listed as a domestic servant at another address in Southville on that same 1851 census. She had several children by John Murch, and they moved to Everton. I think, on the 1861 census Mary Ann nee Portlock was living with some of her children at another address in Bristol. She later moved up to Everton, as well It seems to have been a very complicated family.

Murch-416 and Murch-404 appear to represent the same person because: Spouses are the same and so is the date of marriage and general location of events.
