Name: Daniel Brooks
Date of Registration: Jul-Aug-Sep 1855
Registration district: Guiltcross
Inferred County: Norfolk
Volume Number: 4b

Spouse: Frances Ling

If you look on the 1861 census there is a step-daughter Jane Ling 1843 Tailor Work East Harling, Norfolk


Also on the same census you will see Daniels eldest child Margaret was born in 1836.

So this might be a second marriage for Daniel and Frances
