I am trying to find a birth for a James Spencer Ward in Wrenbury, Cheshire, sometime in the 1830s.
I know that James Spencer Ward lived in Chester as of the 1901, 1891, 1881 and 1871 censuses. His wife was Mary A, which I believe to be Mary Ann Davies (who married a James Ward in Chester in 1864).
His place of birth is listed on censuses as Wrenbury, Cheshire but the age is all over the place, some listing a YOB around 1833 and others a lot later.
A James Spencer Ward died in Chester in 1903 with an estimate birth date of 1837, which I think is the correct one.
I am struggling to find a birth record for him though. If the 1864 marriage is him, then his father was John Ward but I can't find any census records earlier which seem to be congruent.
