Further info on Alfred shows he was at Kings Norton before the 1911 census. As his daughter Asenath died at the cottages he must kept some connection...This is interesting, did Albert actually move to King’s Norton to pull the narrow boats through the Wast Hill Tunnel?
In the 1911 census Asenath Jane Boulton was a Card Box maker and 30 years old. Working in a chocolate and cocoa factory. She was living with her father Alfred Boulton who was 62 and a steam tug engine driver, Canal Co. Worker. His address is given as (Machine House) Worcester Wharf, Bridge St, Birmingham.
The thread starts by mentioning Tunnel Cottages in Masshouse Lane, just where are they in Masshouse Lane?
In 1901 Alfred is down at Masshouse Lane, Tunnel cottages, Engine worker
In 1899 Albert is just King's Norton and down as Engine Driver, tug boat barge
In 1881 down as Tunnel End, Steam tug engine Driver.
In 1871 he is Engine Driver in Gloucestershire at age 21
