Hi,

Looking for 1891 census record for a Rowland Moseley (possibly recorded as Roland)born about 1845. Married to Mary Ann (born Leicester) and employed as a brass founder. Living in Birmingham.

Thanks.

No Moseleys iin my line ran hotels. My nan was at one time landlady at the Mermaid in Sparkbrook, but that is about it!

Thanks again ladylinda. I have some of this, but not all. The Reason I am curious about the 1891 census is to narrow the date range to search for Rowland's daughter Elizabeth's marriage.

Well it wasn't the 1895 Moseley/Perry marriage,(although born the same year) because in 1901 Elizabeth's widowed mother Ann is living with them. They lived at 79, Camden Street, Birmingham.
It wasn't the 1904 Moseley/Small marriage, as that Elizabeth appears to have been born 1883.
The 1888 Moseley/Milner marriage, Elizabeth appears to have been born 1867.
Don't know if you have this?
name Elizabeth Moseley
gender Female
baptism/christening date 26 May 1872
baptism/christening place SAINT GEORGE,BIRMINGHAM,WARWICK,ENGLAND
birth date 04 May 1872
father's name Rowland Moseley
mother's name Mary Ann

Lynne,

Belated reply on this. I was rather hoping the 1895 marriage was the one. Is it the 1901 Census which records her living with her widowed mother?

This rules it out as her mother died before in 1895. Freebmd does not reveal a death that matches and the only other possibility is an Eliza Moseley in 1890 in Aston, which is where they lived.
