I may be wrong, but his birth may wrongly have been registered as Jane!
William Gore, Carpenter, married Harriett Garrod, 1851, St Giles in the Field. Her father was Frederick, which was also the name of their first son:
GORE, FREDERICK mmn GARROD GRO Ref: 1851 J Quarter in SAINT PANCRAS Volume 01 Page 407
GORE, WILLIAM mmn GARROD GRO Ref: 1853 M Quarter in SAINT PANCRAS Volume 01B Page 51
James should come next, and then Ellen, Thomas & Luke, but the only entry I can see (but with no matching death) is this one, listed as female:
GORE, JANE mmn GARROD GRO Ref: 1854 M Quarter in SAINT PANCRAS Volume 01B Page 50
GORE, ELLEN mmn GARROD GRO Ref: 1856 M Quarter in LAMBETH Volume 01D Page 260
GORE, THOMAS mmn GARROD GRO Ref: 1859 M Quarter in LAMBETH Volume 01D Page 268
GORE, LUKE GEORGE mmn GARROD GRO Ref: 1860 S Quarter in LAMBETH Volume 01D Page 238
Both FreeBMD and the GRO has the birth as Jane, so it doesn't seem to be a transcription error.
ADDED: Frederick, William, James & Ellen were all baptised together on 4 Jan 1857. James' DoB is given as 21 Feb 1854, so fits the birth registration for 'Jane'.
