Hi Reggie,

Yes that's correct. John Ernest b 1872.

If I find any more info I will let you know



Reggie Report 5 Sep 2013 12:30

This is the correct 1901 for the family.....................................not the one you mentioned on page one

1901 census

Person: BAKER, John Address: 36, Regent Street, Sedgley

BAKER, John Head Married M 26 1875 Holloware Iron Moulder
Sedgley, Staffordshire VIEW
BAKER, Elizabeth Wife Married F 23 1878
Sedgley, Staffordshire VIEW
BAKER, John Son M 2 1899
Sedgley, Staffordshire

I'm not sure why you think the son had a second forename.........there is no record of one on either 1901 or 1911 censuses.

I suspect that this is his birth

Births Dec 1898 (>99%)
Baker John Dudley 6c 83


Reggie Report 5 Sep 2013 12:33

BTW........1911 census records that one child of the five born in the marriage had died.

I think your a star * think you've found where I've gone wrong. Does the image you found in 1901 confirm his father's occupation of Engine Fitter or Fitter? The image I have states occupation as Railway Porter and has son's middle name of Edwin.


oops just noticed his occupation was Iron Moulder so that can't be him can it?? His occupation on marriage certificate was 'Fitter' and in 1891 census with his parents his occupation was Engine Fitter.

Lou ...whose getting confused now.


Reggie Report 5 Sep 2013 12:44

That is the WRONG 1901.........see above

Mine is incorrect - I know that now, but the one you found above states occupation as Iron Moulder, do you still think that's correct because his marriage certificate for John was Engine Fitter or Fitter,

Sorry to be a pain but I'm getting confused now.

for your information, Dudley archives cover Sedgeley, Coseley, Woodsetton.
Hope this helps.

Hi Brummie46

Thanks that helps quite a lot.

In the past I had contacted Sandwell to find out where to go for Coseley records, as I was travelling long distance to check them out and wanted to go the right place. They told me I should go to Coseley, only to discover when I got there they said I should go to Dudley!! Quite frustrating.

So thanks again for that valuable info.
