James Dyson pre 1851

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY
Hello
I have found James back to the 1851 census which shows him as being born in Padiham, Lancashire. Later censuses also show that. I also have his marriage to Mary Greenhalgh on the 1/1/1844 in Bury Lancashire. His father's profession was a Weaver and his name was John. The censuses indicate that he was born abt 1823 but I cant find a baptism or maybe the 1841 census to take me a little further back.
I am trying to copy and paste the 1851 census but for some reason my PC is playing up and wont let me do this.
Hope this might be enough to help.
Thank you

Maddie

Hi
I kept looking at that 1841 census but it looks on the original as the father may have been a Valentine Dyson rather than John

Thank you for looking. Bit of a nightmare as there are so many Dyson's out there.

Just posting these as possible family members. Very, very tentative but I'm looking to see if there's any more on them.
