An event as well known as the one being reported, should logically have been reported by more people than just one, two or three.}}
This is a classic ''Straw man''. There Many of the chains of narration for [,_Hadith_and_Scholars:Aisha#Aisha.27s_Age_at_Consummation_and_Marriage these hadiths] do not involve Hisham (for example, {{Muslim|8|3311}}, and in any case there is no requirement in Islam for multiple narrations. Even a single sahih hadith is sufficient to establish Islamic laws and practices.
Shaykh Gibril Haddad also refutes the claim that most of these narratives narrations are reported only by Hisham ibn 'Urwah.

Details of many some of these other chains of narration that do not include Hisham ibn 'Urwah ibn az-Zubayr can be found in the first half of an [ article by the IslamQA] website.
