Jacqueline Many thanks for the offer. Clutching at straws here but the following people may be in Burton on Trent: Michael Dilks born Stapenhill, Derbys c1806 Mary Dilks born c1806, not Derbys/Staffs Joseph Dilks born Great Sankey, Lancs c1831 Ann Dilks born Stapenhill, Derbys c1835 John Dilks born ? c1836 Michael Dilks born Stapenhill, Derbys 1840. The family were in Stapenhill in 1841 but not in 1851. If you come across any other Dilks in Burton on Trent they are undoubtedly related so if it isn't too much trouble to jot them down I would be really grateful. Many thanks Andrea

HI Jaqueline, I am looking for the following Dale's in Stafford, Castle Church or Wolverhampton. Martha Dale b abt 1801 Mary Dale b abt 1818 Margaret Dale b abt 1821 Martha Dale b abt 1829 Richard Dale b abt 1831 Maria Dale b abt 1836 John Dale b abt 1839 Margaret may be married and her surname would be Moody.

Hi Jackie, Thanks for the info, some of the names do seem to crop up in my tree. I have found a John Dale born abt 1839 on the 1861 census living with a family called Moody in Garden (?) Street, Castle Church. Any trace of them in 1851? Also a marriage has come to light between Martha Dale & Thomas Ferris in 1842, do they appear in 1851? Many thanks Simon

Hi Jackie, you know all those millions of Mills you found in Tipton? I think they are all related. Would it be possible for you to please send me the images so I can work out who belongs to who? I'll understand if this is too much to ask, but you don't get anything if you don't :)
