(I hope I have that location right!)

I am seeking information of St Peter's, located Aston Juxta Birmingham. I'm unfamiliar with the geography of the area, so please forgive my ignorance!

I'm particularly keen on finding out about my Harrison relations, who were baptised at this church.

The family included William; wife Elizabeth; and children: George, Elizabeth, Mary, William, Albert, Eliza and Louisa. Immigrated to Louisville, KY, bet. 1868-1869.

According to the 1861 census, they lived (civil Parish) Aston; Ecclesiastical parish is St Clement; address is listed as Back Cottage, Nechells Park Road.

Hello colonelwwa, I would think the Church you are looking for is St Peter and St Pauls which was also known as Aston Juxta in early records. The church is still standing and the records are at Birmingham central Library.

Hello listers

I'm here again asking for help please in finding photographs of St Peter's and St Paul's Church (one church) in Aston. Also St George's Church, I don't have a district for that but it will definitely be in Birmingham.

TIA

Best regards
