Iwant to return this painting to descendents of the artist
I am trying to trace descendants of the Rev Charles Issac Atherton and his wife Selina nee Mallett who were in Pensnett, Staffordshire in the 1860's and 70's. I now know they had 2 children Ernest b1865 and Getrude b1866. The family moved on ,I think to Bristol and then to Devon where Charles was a Canon at Exeter Cathedral. Ernest married Sophia Loch and Gertrude married David Brodie Thomas. I have a lovely watercolour of some carnations which my auntie was reliably informed was painted by the wife of the vicar of Pensnett in 1875 and given to relatives of mine as a wedding present. That branch of my family has no known descendents and so I feel it would be good if I could trace descendents of the artist and give the painting to them.
The Family of Charles Wall and Emily Jane Powell
I have a number of photographs, letters and certificates relating to this couple, both from the Kingswinford/Pensnett area, and their family, as my great aunt married one of this couples sons Charles Arthur Wall. They came to my possession following the death of his unmarried sister Annie in the 1970's. Charles senior was born in 1851 at High Oak Kingswinford. His father was also Charles Wall, a wheelwright and his mother Martha Howell. Charles married Emily Jane , daughter of John Powell a farmer, in Pensnett in 1875. He was a schoolmaster and the couple moved to Honley West Yorkshire where their 5 children- Emily Mary, Charles Arthur, Annie Mabel, John Richard and William Hubert Raymond were born before moving to Bristol around 1890. Emily, Charles and Annie became teachers.Emily moved to Leeds and then to Ilkley but I don't think she had any children. I am not sure what happened to John but I believe Raymond (known as Bert) may have emigrated to California. Charles had 2 children but both died in infancy. I think Hubert married Gladys Dyer and that they had a daughter named Mary Irene Wall born 6.8.1925. Charles Wall senior was one of at least 6 children, the others were Thomas, Mary, Joseph, John and Fanny. Im not sure what happened to Thomas and Joseph. Mary married Thomas Bladen and they had a daughter named Emily, born about 1873. Fanny who was a dressmaker may not have married and in 1918 was living at Filed House Lane. John, a wheelwright like his father, married Mary but I cannot find any children. I would love to know if there are any surviving family members that I could pass these things on to.

red mail Looking for Hankins Ancestors
I am looking for imformation on James and Thomas Hankins (father and son) born c 1837 and 1867in Pensnett. James was a canal boatman which probably accounts for the fact that he is missing from most of the census returns. He married Caroline Wasssell (nee Morris) in Dudley. I have Thomas (a widower) marrying my gt grandmother in Yorkshire in 1904 but can find no other trace of him between 1881 and then.

red mail Marriage of Henry Stanworth and Harriet ?
Henry Stanworth (bc.1830, Oakengates, Shropshire) married Harriet before 1860, presumably at Pensnett, as their child, Charles Stanworth, was born there c.1860. It's possible that they also had a John H Stanworth bc.1858. Harriet died in 1888 (Stourbridge ref). Henry died sometime after 1901; probably soon afer, as it appears he was in hospital in Kingswinford in the 1901 census.
