In a follow up email Charmaine wrote:

"I had the same query about Edwin's birthdate, however it is all proven through the 1851 - 1881 census' where Edwin is listed as Ellen's Son, and the 1861 and 1871 census' confirm the other children. Also family who still reside in England have sighted the baptism records in the archive offices and confirmed all dates are correct."
