John ELWELL, Born c1827, Kingswinford, Stafford, Hairdresser


master brummie
I said earlier I've seen nothing to connect the John Elwell in the paper clippings to the John Elwell from Kingswinford.

That's why I asked to whom the original poster was interested in - Elwells of Kingswinford or Louisa Roberts (post #31).


Master Barmy
Yes, there are other candidates for the John Elwell in the clip. Louisa's mother was born in Birmingham and maybe her Elwell family associations were local.

But I assume that TC3 obtained the Kingswinford link from “Correspondence and Warrants"?
