It seems we have 2 candidates for the father of George 1743 –

A. - George b1714 Astley, son of William

B. - George b1717 Astley, son of James

It seems we have 2 candidates for father George's marriage –

C. - Margaret Derbyshire m1736 Deane, GeorgeA age 22, GeorgeB age 19, Margaret age 18 = children James b1738 eldest son, Sarah b1740, George b1743, William d1745, Jane b1746, Margaret b1752. Thus likely this is GeorgeB son of James. This George junior was b1743 and likely our George. All dates now fit. (How sure are we of George's age 96 from his Death Cert ... 'cos there is another George born in St Helens in 1745 ....?)

D. - Elizabeth Strange m1740 Leigh, GeorgeA age 26, GeorgeB age 23, Elizabeth age 29 or 23 = children Mary b1741, Ann b1742, William b1744 eldest son, Eve b1745, Adam b1747, Ellen b1749, George & John, twins, b1751  Abraham b1754. + James b1747 (son of Elizabeth?). Thus likely this is GeorgeA son of William. This George junior was b1751 and unlikely to be our George? All dates now fit apart from James?
