When William Stephen HOWELL married Rhoda TOLLBOYS, Jelius WILLIN was named as Father of the Groom on the marriage record. This was at the Parish Church, in Dursley, Gloucestershire, UK in 1846. On a copy of their marriage certificate, the words "fillius nullus" appear where the groom's father's name should be listed.

How and /or where were Illegitimate Births registered in England circa 1827?

Missing information re the groom's father was replaced with words "fillius nilius", seems to indicate the groom was birth was illegitimate. The marriage was that of William Stephen HOWELL and Rhoda TOLBOYS, in 1846, at the Parish Church, Dursley, Gloucester, England. His occupation was given on the 1841 census, which tallies with later information given on a ship's passenger list. (Trafalgar 1850)

Rhoda TOLLBOYS and husband s, William Stephen HOWELL and John HARRY, South Australia--

Rhoda was born in 1826 in Gloucester, UK. Her parents were James TOLLBOYS and Ann LONG. Her ancestry can be traced back several generation.
She married William Stephen HOWELL in 1846, in the Parish Church in Dursley, Gloucester UK. No information re his parents can be determined to be accurate. He died in Glanville, SA in 1862.

Rhoda migrated to South Australia, with her husband William, aboard the ship TRAFALGAR in 1850. They had 2 children at that stage and a 3rd on the way.
The youngest child, Ellen Maria, died on the voyage, aged 2. The surviving child was Elizabeth Ann HOWELL (married HORSEY).
They settled in the Port Adelaide / Glanville area. Their other children, born in Australia, were Ellen HOWELL (married DUGARD), John Thomas HOWELL, Catherine Jane HOWELL (Stevenson) and William Stephen HOWELL. This William Stephen, our connection, was born in 1852. His father died in 1862.

Rhoda married a second time, to John Harry, in 1857, at which time her first husband was still alive.
The details supplied by her when she married are inaccurate. (??questionable).
Rhoda and John had several children together, the first one was born in 1858. Details of Harry family history on various sites, make no mention of Rhoda's other children, my feeling being that they were not aware of them. However, sites detailing Howell family history, include Rhoda's children with John HARRY, as half siblings.
Strange things happened in those days. Rhoda and William HOWELL's son, William Stephen HOWELL Junior, had a similar experience with his first wife.
Surnames: HARRY HOWELL TOLLBOYS
