red mail Martha Dudley married Isaac Timmins July 24, 1781, in Tipton, Staffordshire
They were my 6 great grandparents. Their daughter Rosanna Timmins was born in 1794 and married Walter Williams on September 11, 1814, in Dudley, Staffordshire. Walter was a military man and they moved around a lot. They moved to Wales on his retirement where she died 1875. I cant find a baptism of Martha or Isaac only their marriage in Tipton. Various genealogies have Martha as the daughter of JOSEPH ECCLESHALL DUDLEY and MARY DARBEY and trace these back to various aristocrats and lords; however daughter Rosanna married a lowly private and died in a small terraced house in Monmouthshire shared with numerous boarders. Its hard to reconcile them together. Any help would be greatly appreciated thankyou!
Hi,Looking for any info re Octavia Ingley from ?Tutbury/Burton on Trent Thanks
red mail James Richard Cluley married Ann Sanders on October 11, 1789, in Cannock, Staffordshire.
Their son was Richard Cluley born in 1801 in Willenhall Staffordshire and who married Sarah Wicks on November 20, 1829, in Bethnal Green, Middlesex. Cant locate a baptism for James Richard Clewley or Cluley or Cluly although have located a James Clewley 17 Jan 1762 Christening Place: Penkridge, Staffordshire, parent listed as John. This town is right next to Cannock, Staffordshire where James Richard married Ann Sanders in 1789. Im just hesitant to add this to my tree because he doesnt have the Richard in his name then and his father isnt called Richard which would make it more convincing.
red mail Jonathan Adderley with unknown spouse in Shareshill,Stafford.
Hi there, he had the following children Sarah Adderley 1736, Esther Adderley 1738, Rebecka Adderley 1740, Richard Adderley 1741. All children were baptised in Shareshill and the mother isnt listed. Esther was my 8 great grandmother and married William Sanders on November 10, 1760, in Cannock. Their daughter Ann Sanders (1767) married James Richard Clewley in 1789. Unfortunately there dont seem to be any marriages for him so if anyone could find his marriage that would be great thank you as it doesnt have anything.

Josiah austin married Parmilia Yates, 23rd. 1789 at Norton in the Moors. In researching Josiah and Parmela/Parmilia/Pamela, i find the they had children, Nancy b 1794, Sarah b 1789,Thomas b 1804 and Robert b 1798. But no Mary. i have two births for Josiah Austin. 1. 13th. Nov. 1768 at Wolstanton, St. Margaret, son of Robert and Sarah. 2. 4th. Jun. 1771 at Newcastle under Lyme, St. Giles, son of Nathaniel. Are either of these two Josiah's the father of Mary Austin?

Can anyone find any evidence of a marriage between William (William Henry) Reed and Elizabeth Mather probably in the 1850s. William, an engraver, was born in London but travelled around the country a good deal in his younger years; Elizabeth appears to come from Ashton-in-Makerfield.

red mail John William TAYLOR - born Walsall c. 1861
John William TAYLOR, stated birthplace: Walsall, Staffs, 1861, was the father of my maternal grandmother's five illegitimate children (including my late mother, who was born at Simon's Town, South Africa, in 1907) Taylor (given age 40 on the 1901 census) who at the time had a 17 year old son, (also called John)formed a relationship with my 20 year old grandmother which lasted from 1901 to 1909. On the latter date he vanished from the scene, abandoning my grandmother and the children and was never heard of from that day onwards. He worked as a locomotive engine driver and in 1905 he obtained employment with the Sir John Jackson Engineering Company, who were contracted to build the naval docks at Simon's Town - which accounts for his temporary emigration to that country later that year with my grandmother and the children. In 1909 their relationship was disolved. Enquiries reveal that Taylor allegedy threatened to murder my grandmother which resulted in her fleeing the family home and taking refuge with the Salvation Army at Cape Town, before being repatriated with her family in the UK. In spite of extensive research over the past 5 months, I have been unable to unearth any definite information about John William Taylor, other than his own entry on the 1901 census, and references to him by name as being the father of his children on the respective birth certificates of the said offspring. So, did you have a grandfather or great-grandfather called John William TAYLOR who was born around 1861, who worked as an engine driver in South Africa for John Jackson between 1905 and 1909? If so, do let me know, please.
