I got the birth cert from the GRO. However, I wrote to the local register office, who replied along the lines that they had looked at the original register, and the name was definitely Eddiford. I can't lay my hands on the letter at the moment to check. Bother.
The place of birth is given as Witheridge. Susan was the informant. Her place of residence is Witheridge. In 1841, the family are living next to Parsonage House in Witheridge, but the name of the cottage is obscured on the page.
I think we were in touch in the past, but I haven't delved much into the Boundy's of E/W Worlington and Witheridge, so it would be nice to have more info on them.
John's mother, Jane, was living with a William Boundy in 1851 and 1861. A William Boundy was witness to John and Susan's marriage.
Thank you for the offer. I'll email you later (I'm off to an exam today).
