Anthony Report 16 Feb 2013 18:30

William Parsley Jnr born Braintree Essex 1791
William Parsley Snr probably born Essex circa 1765. Married to Amelia who died in Woolwich 1852 She born in Coggeshall Essex.
Amelia is in 1851 census for Woolwich
Both Williams were hat makers.
I have records of Willianm Snr having a listed apprentice in 1790 in Braintree.
William Parsley Jnr lived at 62 Powis Street Woolwich before 1845
Both were declared bankrupts in 1834 and WP Jnr also in 1845. He eventually moved to Bristol & Swansea having married Agnes______ in Poplar she born in Dublin.
William Parsley Jnr father of Daniel Parsley born 1823 Southwark. He was a succesful hat maker and seller in Bristol
Missing info required
BIRTH RECORD OF DANIEL PARSLEY in Southwark
DEATH RECORDS OF BOTH WILLIAMS in Woolwich area
BIRTH OF WILLIAM PARSLEY Snr around 1765 possibly in Essex
MARRIAGE of WILLIAM Snr to Amelia _______ maybe in Essex
1841 CENSUS RECORDS FOR BOTH WILLIAMS,AMELIA and DANIEL?
It would seem William Snr left Essex after 1791 and before 1823 probably to Southwark. From before 1834 and until at least 1845 William Jnr lived in Woolwich.
Any help please

Possible for William Jnr death ? I note that he lived with Agnes in Swansea, perhaps he went to live with his son Charles?
