Default William Crowther bc1835

Can anyone help with William Crowther's parents names please as two different family trees have different parents for him.

William Crowther b c1835 Shipley, Yorkshire baptism not found

1841 census
https://www.ancestry.co.uk/interacti...92/edit/record

With I believe his mother Susannah, sister Helen and brother Thomas.

1851 census
https://www.ancestry.co.uk/interacti...91/edit/record

with mother Susan - he's 16 an apprentice printer

1st marriage 1852 to Sarah Milner in Halifax - father Thomas Crowther - weaver

https://www.ancestry.co.uk/interacti...94/edit/record

1861 census
https://www.ancestry.co.uk/interacti...90/edit/record

with wife Sarah and children

1871 census
https://www.ancestry.co.uk/interacti...89/edit/record

with wife Sarah and children

16 Aug 1876
1st Wife Sarah Milner dies at 59 Dundas St, Bradford

2nd marriage 1 Oct 1876 to widowJane Knowles nee Robinson
https://www.ancestry.co.uk/interacti...81/edit/record

Father's name on marriage is James Crowther a clothier not Thomas

1881 census
https://www.ancestry.co.uk/interacti...4441_4444-0762

With 2nd wife Jane and step children and son William Broadbent Crowther age 3

1891 census
https://www.ancestry.co.uk/interacti...93/edit/record

with 2nd wife Jane, step children and son William from 2nd marriage

death of William Crowther 25 Nov 1896 in Bradford.

…………………………………………� �…………………………………………� ��……..

I believe William's parents were

James Crowther and Susannah Bradley who married in 1818 in Bradford
https://www.ancestry.co.uk/interacti...290.1585754578

Haven't found James Crowther's death which was before 1841 census but Susannah died on 10th Nov 1854 in Bradford - the widow of James Crowther a weaver. A William Crowther of 23 Pit Lane, Bradford registered the death.

If William's father died when William was very young, he may have given his older brother's name instead of his father's at his first marriage. Maybe he didn't know his father's name and assumed his brother was named after him. I have seen a few like that.

Thanks Kate

There's 4 years between his 1st marriage and his mother's death and William registered the death stating her husband as James.

Would he have suddenly remembered James not Thomas?

Maybe he asked his family after his wedding? He got married in Halifax so they may not have been there.

Wish I could find his baptism if his siblings are correct I think I got them christened in Bradford but maybe his father died around the same time as he was born and they never got around to it.

However the 1851 census occupation and place of birth fits in with the following census's and has him with his mother Susannah - so hopefully proving the other family trees wrong.
