red mail Family mystery - Yates, Gothard, Mousley
JOHN YATES (1813-1857) of Walton-on-Trent married SARAH MOUSLEY (1809-1857) of Burton-on-Trent. They had four children, Sarah, John Mousley, William Henry and Catherine Elizabeth. At some point they moved to London, where John Yates had a tailor shop at 66 Jermyn Street. Sarahs sister Catherine Mousley also lived with them. After John and Sarah both died in 1857, the four children moved back to Burton-on-Trent with their aunt Catherine. After they grew up all four siblings emigrated to America (at different times), along with William Henrys wife MARY ELIZABETH GOTHARD (m. 1873 in St. Modwens). The kicker is that Mary Elizabeth apparently got fed up with William Henry and came BACK to England!! I would love to hear from any of the GOTHARD family who might have old letters or info about why she came back and what happened to her. I would also love to hear from any YATES or MOUSLEY family with connections to Burton-on-Trent. I have a collection of old family & friends photos from the 1800s that I would love to identify. Thanks! - Crispin

Looking for information on the family, particularly antecedents, of William Thompson, hatter, baptised 13 May 1798 at St Modwen. He was son of William Thompson, hatter, and Esther Ridge (or Rudge), who married 16 February 1792 at St Modwen. Other children of William and Esther appear to have been Samuel (bap 1795, possibly "hatter" resident in Union Workhouse Atherstone, Warkwishire in 1871),Thomas (bap 1801), James (bap 1804), Mary (1806-1807), and Elizabeth (bap 1808).

No indication that Thompson and Gilbert families connected other than by being in same parish and fathers following same occupation. James Thompson, bap 1804, and Samuel Thompson, bap 1795, appear to have married at St Modwen, James to Mary Ann Lester on 9 October 1831, and Samuel to Maria Harvey, widow, on 11 June 1831. Thank you.

He is listed as an iron moulder, is 39 years of age and married, but no wife is with him. In 1901 he was still a boarder but listed as a widower. When and where did his wife die? What of his children, if any? By 1911 he was head of the household in Tredegar, Mon, having presumably married his former landlady. Any and all information will be gratefully received. Many thanks.
