Can someone give me a definitive answer as to when Town as we know them , in whatever name , were formed as there seems to be some confusion between the dates on merchandise like books , t shirts etc on eBay ?
I've always been in the 1878 camp btw .

Formed in 1878 as Grimsby Pelham but changed a year later to Grimsby Town.

My wife keeps telling me that I am still young,

BECAUSE

She is a few years older than me.

So I will never get old.

I've got an official GTFC merchandise hoodie type fleece which shows "Grimsby Town 1879" on it

Ever since I got it, I've always wondered whether it's correct but in reality I guess it is right, if we changed from Pelham to Town between 1878 and 1879

^^^ this is exactly what I mean . The club has logos around the club or on books etc that say 1878 , then sell a t shirt in the club shop with 1879 on . Even if the club , or a business for that matter slightly changes it's name , it still sticks with the original date it was established ?

I WANT AND NEED SOME CLARITY !

On seconds thoughts, yes I can.
