Enock Steel & Mary Elizabeth Owen
The wonderfully named Enock Steel Owen married Mary Elizabeth Lewis at Wistanstow in 1901. They lived on the High Street at Madeley in the early part of the 20th century where Enock worked as a baker and confectioner. They had, I believe, 2 girls and a boy. Enock apparently died in Madeley in the early 50s. I'm trying to confirm the identity of his wife as the daughter of George Lewis, a coachman who lived in/around Everthorp in Yorkshire, and his 1st wife Martha Elizabeth and to find out what happened to her siblings. If I'm right about her identity, then she's my grandfather's 1st cousin. Is anyone researching this couple or know what happened to their children? Any help would be appreciated.

red mail Elizabeth Rose Hambleton born 1856
My great grandmother is extremely elusive and I'd be very grateful for any info or suggestions on where else to look! She lived in Vaughton Street, Aston in 1891 and 1901 and during that time changed her name to Cox (but did not appear to marry my great-grandfather John Brooke Cox)there were four children two were killed in WW1, one was my grandfather and there was a daughter Ethel Cox born 1888 who married Frank Payne, a butcher in Birmingham. Elizabeth also had an illegitimate daughter in 1880 called Jessie and I'd love to hear from her descendants. Jessie was adopted initially but was back living with her mother in 1891 and 1901 when she had, like her mother, changed her name to Cox. Elizabeth's place of birth on those census' is Birmingham but I can find no birth record and therefore believe she was not called Hambleton at birth. Another possible name I have for her is Morgan. There is a probable link with the Hambleton family who moved from Madeley to Birmingham in the 1860s to 1880s. Any ideas would be very welcome, including anyone who has heard of an Elizabeth Cox or Hambleton in Birmingham after 1901.

red mail Postance Yardley
Can anyone identify connections between the Postances of Madeley and the Yardleys of Astley Abbotts, Shropshire? I have a Postance family bible in which the last Postance entry is dated 1825 as is the first entry referring to a Yardley - and the bible then passed down through the Yardleys. I have found a marriage between William Postance (1858-1900: descended from the Madeley Postances but himself born in Compton near Wolverhampton) and Emily Yardley, dr of Edward Enoch Yardley of Wolverhampton, but there seems to be no connection between these Yardleys and the Astley Abbotts family and in any case the marriage is too late to account for the bible entries.

red mail Nock/mantle
Seeking information on the families of my gg-grandparents Thomas Nock and Letticia(also spelt Letitia in some records) Mantle. They married in 1829 and lived in and around the Ironbridge/Madeley area of Shropshire. I have no information about hisfamily or his origins and know only that he is recorded as a "molder" on the marriage certificate of his son Sydney Thomas Nock. According to census information there were a number of Nock families settled in that area at that time but withso little information at my disposal it is difficult to connect him to any one family. Letticia could be one of two possibilities. a)Letticia Mantle born to Philip and Letticia Mantle at Kinlet, Shropshire in 1789 OR Letticia Mantle born to John and Hannah Mantle at Ditton Priors, Shropshire in 1890. Any information would be appreciated. Siobhan Mullin, Canada.
