I think George is son of William JACKSON and Margaret BRAYSON, but you need to find baptism records......start with St confirm this.

Information from the marriage certificate is really important. Catherine cannot read or write, so note her name at daughter's birth registration....and possibly any other occasion when Catherine gives her name.

4 March 1873 St Peters Hamilton C of E
George Thomas JACKSON 18yrs labourer bachelor
Catherine SHAW 21yrs servant (her mark)
Officiating Minister George WRIGHT
witnesses Charles FROST, Selina FINDEN

birth Margaret Eliza JACKSON 25 Nov 1873 registered 11 Dec 1873
Father George JACKSON, shoemaker,
mother Catherine JACKSON formerly THAW, mother is informant.

Cornwall Chronicle 7 Oct 1865
Death of Margaret JACKSON, living with Charles FROST at Hamilton, Constable FINDON investigating. From inquest file TAHO, Margaret is widow.

William JACKSON 50yrs Margaret BRAYSON 21yrs Hamilton 659 / 1843

William James 1844 Hamilton
Rachel Eliza 1847 Hamilton
Samuel 1849 Hamilton
male 1852 Hamilton
male 1854 Hamilton

Your George might be male 1854. You need to look at baptisms St Peters Hamilton for these children, and names for two youngest children.

William JACKSON 20 Jul 1860 76yrs Hamilton
Margaret JACKSON 24 Sep 1865 46yrs Hamilton

this Margaret could be the widow living with Charles FROST in Hamilton 1865.

See TAHO Permission to Marry file for William JACKSON and Margaret BRAYSON
