    Jackson family on 1871 census

    Thanks again Suzanne - any ideas on the following? It seems William's gone by 1881 born somewhere between 1810 and 1817 dependant on sources (censuses) but can't be sure I've nailed him as a speculative ref Sept 1886 qtr, 6d 253 - aged 70 which might be about the right age. I've yet to buy...

    Jackson family on 1871 census

    Jackson family on 1871 census, they ought to include William (b. 1817), Susannah (b.1820) and Millicent (b.1861). By 1881 Millicent is married to Thomas Legg and Mother in Law is named Legg too in error. I've yet to identify when William Jackson died so he may not be there in 1871. In 1861...

    I've attempted to resurrect this post as there's been no response for 30 months - anyone got an idea? Help needed, please.

    Thomas Brown of Maldon, Essex

    A "tinker"? Suppose there is some link between tin & silk but I can't imagine what it is - takes a lot to remove from Essex to Brum in an industry you have few skills in. It would seem that prior to 1861 there must have been some metal working skills. Thanks both Alberta & Mrs T.

    Thomas Brown of Maldon, Essex

    Many thanks. Any idea what he was doing there? Spent most of his life in Bethnal Green, London in the Silk industry.

    Thomas Brown of Maldon, Essex

    Thomas Brown of Maldon, Essex was apparently in Brum at the 1861 census - can anyone help find him? He was by then married to Sarah Wilcox and had 6 children (the last 2 were Sarah's). Any help appreciated, thanks John

    Rose Jackson

    I imagined someone would have recognised her and given a little clue on where I might search next but after 2 weeks ...... nothing. One other clue is that I've remembered Diane had very red hair. HELP PLEASE ...... anything........

    Upper Trinity St., Deritend

    Brilliant! Can't imagine where all the energy comes from. It's 25C here in Cape Town and I'm watching the Birmingham City v Derby County cup match live on TV. Flipping small world ain't it! Oughtn't I be a Villa supporter from Deritend ancestors? John

    Upper Trinity St., Deritend

    Gt G'dad Dan Jackson was born Upper Trinity St., Deritend. We tracked it down some years ago and it was light industry facing a huge railway embankment. Was it always like this (obviously not I imagine) and are there any memories or photographs - it was 1857 so I doubt there's surviving...

    Rose Jackson

    As a teenager I remember Aunt Rose who was determined her daughter Diane would become a teacher. This was the mid-50s when Diane and I were young. We lived in Enfield, Middx, they in Birmingham and we drifted apart and it wasn't till 15 years later that Rose and I met at my grandfather's...

    Catherine Jackson m Henry Lloyd

    My Catherine Jackson marries young at 16 in Dec 1859 in King's Norton to I believe Henry Lloyd. I hoped to find them in the 1861 but the nearest one gets is a Caroline Lloyd with husband Henry - not near enough .... Can anyone with 1871 access confirm it's a Catherine - he was a brass caster...
