Amelia Richardson/Prossor of Wrockwardine
Louisa was baptised in Wrockwardine in 1849, the third child and second daughter of Thomas Lloyd and Martha, who had married in the the village. It appears that Thomas was an itinerant labourer, and they may have returned to Wrockwardine for Louisa's baptism. By 1851, they are on the census in Bilston, Staffs. Louisa appears to have a cousin, Annie Louisa, who marries a James Banks and moves to Birmingham Louisa herself marries a William Richardson in 1870 in Buttington, Montgomeryshire. Their daughter Amelia Richardson appears in the 1871 census in Devon, and in the 1891 census in Liverpool.
Brown Emery Family
Researching my ancestor William Brown born 1863 in Wrockwardine, Wellington Shropshire to John Brown and Ruth Emery. I think John's father was George ( William's brother was also George). I have no information on Ruth Emery's family and would appreciate any information on these families. William Brown married Mary Wakefield in Dublin in 1886 - they were both working at Clonskeagh Castle.

In 1871 he was living in Shelton Staffordshire where he traded as a Butcher Cattle Dealer in 1882 he had moved to Wrockwardine and continued to trade as a Butcher Cattle Dealer he married a lady called Martha it is believed her maiden name was MacDonald and she was born in Wrexham Denbighshire in 1854.
red mail Edwin & Harriet Jones
Edwin Jones died in 1866 in Wrockwardine at the age of 26. He was married to Harriet (Evans) and left 3 very young children, Henry, Charlotte and Ada(a few days old). I have not been able to find their marriage details nor the parentage of Edwin. I would be most interested to hear from anyone who might be connected to this family. Edwin was a farm labourer or miller who worked on the Home Farm in Wrockwardine. He died of apoplexy.

Alice Marion Vickers
I wish to verify the ancestry of my maternal great-grandmother,Alice Marion Vickers m Alexander Cruikshank Brown in Durban, South Africa on 3rd July 1901. This may be the same Alice M. Vickers traced via the 1881, 1891 & 1901 censuses to Wrockwardine, Shropshire, where she was born about 1879. She appears in the 1881 census, at 8 Bednall Street Manchester, but born in Wrockwardine. Father, Joseph Vickers, Surry Driver, her mother, Jane E. Vickers Sisters Annie and Ellen. In 1891 the family is in Chetwynd, Shropshire. Annie is missing from the census and another daughter, Jessie, born in Hadley ca. 1885. In 1901, Joseph is gone and Alice, 22, spinster is the only daughter remaining at home in Wellington with Jane, domestic servant. Is this Alice M. Vickers the same Alice Marion Vickers who married in Durban by special licence on 3rd July 1901? One can almost imagine her packing her bags for the colonies that long-ago March and being caught by the census-taker just before departing for South Africa! If anyone related to the present-day Vickers family knows of an Alice who went to South Africa, please get in touch. Based on oral history, we are sure "our" Alice Marion Vickers was English, born and bred. We are pretty sure she and Alice M. are one and the same, but we don't know where in England she was born. Alice Marion Vickers' daughter was Natalie Mary Duthie (nee Brown). Her daughter Ethne Mary Jean Christie (nee Duthie) returned to Britain in 1951 and, by complete coincidence, lived in Silvermere Park, Shifnal, between 1961-1966. It would be very pleasant to learn that her grandmother came from a shire she loved. James C.

red mail Pugh Family
I am looking for information on the family Of Richard Pugh (1834 - 1913)blacksmith/engineer. He went to work in Russia in the 1870's and married a Russian widow after the death of his first wife Harriet (nee Price). it would seem as if his son went with his as he too had a Russian wife - Olga. Also other relatives would seem to have gone to Russia as there are quite a few children born there. One was Leonard born 1895 in Russia and it notes on the 1901 census that he had deformed feet. Any details of any of these would be useful. I too have info available. Aslo one Thomas Pugh kept The Bricklayers Arms. Richard's father was John Pugh 1812 - 1881 (ish) Tallow Chandler. Most of them seem to have been born in Trench or Wrockwardine but I am particularly interested in the Russian connection.
