Hastings, Sussex

Although Thomas Baxter Mortimer's death certificate shows his birth to be Hastings, Sussex, after years of research I believe this to be incorrect. The informant was the Medical Superintendent of the hospital where he died. I have found a birth for Thomas Mortimer, to a Jesse Mortimer and Sarah, nee Hainsworth (his parents of death certificate), in Bradford, Yorkshire in first quarter of 1839. It is possible the family moved to Sussex when Thomas was small and he grew up there until he went to New Zealand around 1866-1868. He married Susanna (Susan) Jones in June 1874. That family arrived in Australia around 1880-81, as 5th child was born in Sydney in December 1881. I have a birth certificate for a Thomas born to Elias and Jane Mortimer in Hastings in 1843, and curiously Jesse Mortimer of Bradford had a brother Elias. Can anyone confirm these birth summations?
