Geraldine Report 9 Aug 2004 22:27

Kal Thanks a million. Do you think Edwin Johnson was playing away from home in 1861 and had two wives?!! This branch has been quite easy to follow as they stayed in the same place till at least 1901. However, I'm having more trouble tracking down John Johnson's cousin/siblings and the Willenhall birthplace on the 1851 census is the best clue yet. Can you tell me if the Webbs were still at Much Park Street in 1861. Regards Geraldine

Although i found the Webb family on the 41. and on the 51 living at much park street, but john with a different wife, i have found this family on the 1861, living at Much park street, but it does not make sense, now the children are different, lol, The ages work out right for John and possible second wife sarah, but the children are different, helen and richard, on there, i just cannot find on the 1851. and the family on the 51 i gave you, i can't find on the 61, only these.....................

Tracey Report 22 Aug 2004 21:56

Hi Kal Could you possibly look up Joseph Mallett for me. He should be around 17 in 1861. I know in 1881 he was a watchmaker and living in Far Gosford Street in the Holy Trinity area. From Family search website I believe that his parents may have been Thomas and Betsey Mallett, but since I cannot find the register of his birth I can't verify them as parents. The 1881 census shows his birthplace as Coventry. Any help really appreciated. Thanks Tracey

Tracey Report 23 Aug 2004 13:43

Hi Kal Thank you very much for your help. It does look like the right person. I'm going to go back and look for his birth register again, maybe this time I'll get lucky! He married a lady called Sarah Clark, which must be one of the most common names at that time and so their marriage is proving very hard to find too. But at least one brick wall has come tumbling down. Thanks again Kindest regards Tracey.
