1851 HO107; Piece: 2502; Folio: 248; Page: 37
Jonathon Phillips with wife Louisa, son Thomas and siblings William age 33 and Mary age 16.

Can anyone find the three Phillips siblings in 1841.

Jonathon moved to Birmingham area where he married Louisa in 1848, Thomas was born there then they moved back to Wrexham area.
Researching for a friend
Thank you Anita

Where is Borras Hall which is shown for birth place of sister Mary 1833 and brother William 1818

Jonathan b 1824 Wrexham


Anita Report 24 Jan 2013 13:56

Borras Hall is near Wrexham in Denbighshire. Jonathon gives either in 1861/1871/1881.

I think his occupation is 'Grocer' but it could be 'Glazier' ???

Thanks Shirley


Anita Report 24 Jan 2013 18:34

Thanks all
The family are solidly in the Wrexham area so the southern ones are unlikely. Both William and Jonathon are grocers so it is a long haul to glazier which is a craft.
Having moved briefly to Birmingham Jonathon went back to Denbighshire and the 1851 census implies that Mary's status as 'farmer's daug' would suport birth at Borras Hall.
May try for William and Mary marriages. Could lead to other relatives.
