Daniel, I cannot possibly know which birthdate is correct, only that Annie Besant believed Leadbeater to have born in 1847. She must have gotten that information from Leadbeater himself??? 
I think all the birthdate discrepancies could be due to 1 of 2 reasons:
1. Leadbeater was born out of wedlock....
2. Leadbeater's data was somehow mixed up with his brother, who perished at a young age. This may have harmed Leadbeater psychologically somehow, and he took his birthdate and papers for some reason. That is my best guess....certainly not an informed guess is it?

Thanks Marie for quoting Annie Besant's words which read:

"On February 17th, 1847, there was born into the world a baby form, 
which was to be the physical encasement of the ego we called in that 
encasement Charles W. Leadbeater."

But I ask in light of the documents quoted by Gregory Tillett in his 
biography of Leadbeater and additional documents given in the past on 
Theos-Talk, how is it possible that CWL was born in 1847?

So far no one has ever given a convincing presentation as to why we 
should reasonably believe that CWL was born in 1847.
