    Ok so, I checked all but the crazy one and you're right. Those are there without the 'exact' setting and ignoring the birth date as 1863.

    Alfred Mahershalalhashbaz is still a mystery to me... Where is that exactly?

    Ah, his name was Alfred Mahershalalhashbaz Clayden, but it has been mistyped as "Alfred Maharshalalhashba". The middle name is clearly meant to be from the Mahershalalhashbaz that is mentioned in the bible: http://www.complete-bible-genealogy....shbaz_2685.htm
    I mostly find the name in Norfolk parish records, where it was commonly later shortened to Maher.
