William George Darby/Derby husband of Susan Pomeroy

I am trying to find any records for my great grandfather William George DARBY born C1859 Taunton, Somerset and his family. I have not been able to locate any birth/christening records or any census record prior to 1891. Here is the information I have so far:

  1. Marriage certificate for George DERBY & Susan POMEROY – married 03 April 1889  Registers Office, Stoke Damerel, Devon. George’s age is listed as 30yrs on the marriage certificate. Fathers name is listed as Samuel DERBY. The occupation for George is listed as labourer. I’m not sure of his father Samuel’s occupation as it is hard to read but looks like Malaster. 
  2. Death certificate of Susan DARBY (nee POMEROY) – husband shown as William George DARBY occupation general labourer who was present at time of death. Living at time of death Blindwell, Millbrook, Cornwall
  3. 1901 census – George DARBY listed as born c1865 Taunton Somerset. Occupation listed as clay quarry man.
  4. 1891 census – George DERBEY listed as born c1857 Marilan Somerset (have not been able to locate a place called Marilan). Occupation listed as general laborer
  5. Children of George DARBY & Susan POMEROY were all born Millbrook,
    Cornwall  are Maud 1891, George 1897, Mabel 1898 & Samuel 1900. According to the 1911 census there was a 5th child (deceased) this could be Elizabeth born St. Germans Cornwall 1889. 

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Ilminster Pomeroys

Research into our family history has come to a halt.  The entry in the marriage register at Woodbury in Devon states that Sarah Lindsey of this parish and John Pomeroy of Ilminster were married on Oct  26th. 1812.  Has anyone any further information which will help me go back further?
