Hello everyone
I really appreciate your help and interest in this. Cynthia, you were very kind to point me in the right direction in finding replies on here.
I have contacted a member on here about her tree, but haven't heard back yet.

Flip, I've not been able to find any siblings of Joseph, or any other links apart from his children, first and second wife and the single archive I've found with a statement of James Stirling as his father.

If there is anything else that comes to light, I would love to hear from you!!
Best wishes

Cynthia

Hello Sarah and welcome to the Community Boards,

It may be worthwhile checking to see if anyone else on this site has Joseph in their tree. Click on Search above and then on Search all Trees. If you find any connections, you can contact the tree owner. Cx

Sarah, do you know if Joseph had any siblings, or have you found him on earlier census returns? Have you got his marriage certificate to Elizabeth, for more details - if so could you post them please?

No Mel, not seeing him in 1851

but not seeing a birth for him either so my guess is that his mother married James Stirling and changed Joseph's name after 1851

Mel, I can't see him prior to 1871 either - no birth or census. But he didn't waste much time in re-marrying!

Hello
I'm starting to research my Stirling family line and have 4 generations already. My great great grandfather is Joseph Edgar Stirling believed to have been born in 1850 and married Elizabeth Christy in 1871. All this took place in Bolton, Lancashire. I'm trying to extend beyond this to Joseph's Father James. I only have his name and no other details and would like to be able to go further into the tree. If you have any details then I would be grateful to know. If you wish to have any details of the rest of this tree, please let me know
