Hi Jacqueline This is a long shot but here goes. Trying to find a Edwin Atkins born Walsall Staffs in 1849. He was my Great Grand father and he was a Coal miner from early age do not know his parents names but I am sure they will also have been assoicated with the coal industry. Regards Cheryl

Hi Jackie Re Griffin family. I only have Thomas Griffin, wife Emily and children in Willenhall on 1891 census and Thomas's marriage cert to Emily Shorthouse in 1874, Wolverhampton, St Paul's church, his father was shown as Enoch Griffin, a japanner. Thomas's occupation was Gas Fitter and in 1891 a brass finisher. Other than that I have no other information on them at all. I did find a William Griffin on the 1871, born Wton c 1827, also a japanner, who could possibly be Enoch's brother. Don't know whether any of this will help, as I said, a very elusive family!! Regards Ann

Hi Jackie Thanks very much for trying to find my Griffins. What a difficult family to track down! Much appreciated. Ann (Dorothy)

Couldn't look up another family for me could you - but this time in Kinver? Edward Rodgers 1774c Mary? I think they were both born in Kinver


Annabel Report 30 Aug 2005 14:56

Do your discs cover Newcastle under Lyme? If so would be really grateful if you could look up William Rice (born c1816). In 1861 census he is living at 5 Paradise St Newcastle Under Lyme with his wife Bridget (born c1831) daughter Mary should be on 1851 census too born about 1849. Thanks in advance for any info, Annabel
