Isaac Farndon

I have been trying to locate Isaac Farndon on the 1841 census using Family Search, but drawing a blank, so hoping someone else might be luckier and find him for me. He should be with his wife Hannah and children William, Harriet and John.
Isaac married Hannah Wakefield in the September Quarter of 1837.

Cause of death question

We learnt that my grandma had a child before she married, we ordered both the birth certificate and the death certificate and learnt the baby died after breathing for one minute.
It was a home birth in 1943, so a midwife wouldn't have been in intendence. The cause of death reads 'strangulation iquited of manslaughter'.
There's notes on the death certificate about an inquest with where the inquest took place and where.

My first question ...

Local Newspapers - Warwickshire

I have been searching various online newspapers for the report of an Inquest held in September, 1838, after the death of a young woman named Harriet LANGTON (aged 19) who lived with her maternal grandparents (William & Ann Langton) in the village of Austrey, Warwickshire.

I've three generations and several ancestors who were London cabbies dating from around the 1950s and back into Victorian times when they drove Hanson cabs. I know they needed licences but I don't really know where to begin and my first efforts to find records has drawn blanks.

Peter & James ANDERSON 1780 Tibbermore, Perth, Scotland

I attach an image of the parish register entry for the baptism of these twin boys on 12 Nov 1780
Can anyone suggest to what the second date 6 June 1782 might relate?
I had thought perhaps a death of one or both of them, but I can't see anything.

also, their mother's surname was recorded McLARNE (spelt like that) at the baptisms of all the children I have found as well as her marriage. ...
