Hi Thanks to you both very much with the all the great work done on this one I have not had time to go in to it yet ( as of work commitments trying to get next years daffodil crop in the ground while we have good weather.)
Will take a closer look in the next day or two and sort out any problems and get the certificate's I need to look at.
Once more thank you both for the time you put in on this.

LOWE/PINDER problem may be solved.
The marriage of John PINDER and Sarah Ann LOWE is actually recorded in the March Qtr of 1852.
There is one Jane PINDER Birth recorded in the period 1850-52 and that occurred at Radford in the June Qtr of 1851.
But there are three records for Births of Jane LOWE.
All are in 1850 and all at Basford. (1=Sep Qtr, 2=Dec Qtr)
So I think you may find that Jane was the illegitimate daughter of Sarah which is why she appeared on the Census as Jane LOWE.
Eliza Ann is another matter:-
Eliza Ann PINDER 1853 Dec Qtr Vol 7b Pg 185 Nottingham Eliza Ann LOWE 1854 Mar Qtr Vol 7b Pg 118 Basford
These are so close together (on the fact of it) that a question might be asked.
Could this possibly be two separate Birth Registrations for the SAME CHILD.
If Grandmother Mary Lowe did not get on with her son-in-law then this is not out of the question and might help explain why Eliza, although obviously born after her parents were married, appeared in the Census as LOWE.
However, it is also possible that she was the child of another of Mary Lowe's children.
Time for a little more hunting and then a change of subject I think.
