red mail Fox/Whittaker/Kettle tree
I have researched the Fox family who lived in Stourbridge and discovered long lost Canadian relatives! Our joint ancestors are John Fox (born 1805 in Sedgley) and Jane Kettle (born 1807 in Elmridge). Their eldest son Thomas married Caroline Attwood. John and Jane and 2 sons and 1 grandson emigrated to Canada in about 1863 leaving Thomas and family behind. We are trying to go further back.

Any help/ideas much appreciated.

red mail Leeson
Neale family believed to have originated in the Slawston area of Leicestershire with a Moses Neale who was married to a Anne, they had several children between 1756 and 1767. One of the children, John born 1759 married an Elizabeth Marlow in 1785 and they too had several children, one of which was Joseph born 1788. He married a Mary Cort in 1815 in Leicester. The couple had many children, in particular a Elizabeth (Betsey) NOT to be confused with her elder sibling Eliza. The family lived around the East Street (1841) and Dunkirk Street (1851) area’s. Joseph was a bricklayer as was his father. Elizabeth left home following the early death of her mother, Mary, in 1839 and was believed to have worked for a hosiery manufacturer. In 1843 Elizabeth gave birth to a boy, William Henry Neale whilst living back at East Street, no father’s name was on certificate. 1851 The Neale family including Betsey (26) and young Henry (8) were living with Joseph in Dunkirk Street. 1852 Elizabeth Neale married a Henry Leeson, a tailor from Leicester at All Saints. The couple then moved to Stourbridge in Worcestershire. 1871 Park Street, Stourbridge. Henry Leeson, 47 a tailor born Leicester. Elizabeth, wife 46, bonnet maker born Leicester. John B. son 14 rail clerk and Jane E. 6, both born Stourbridge. The family continued to live in Stourbridge only when Henry died did Elizabeth return home to York Street Leicester to be with her elder sister Eliza according to 1901census. I am descended from William Henry Neale, family rumour always suggested that his father was FRISBY of Frisby and Jarvis, hosier’s. However in 1841 she is believed to have been housekeeper to Edward Hopkins in Albion Street? Oddly enough Hopkins was also a hosier and later in fact merged with Frisby Hosier factory which was in the Belvoir King street Welford street area. So was Hopkins the father or did Elizabeth meet William Smith Frisby, who was the same age as her or perhaps it was William Smith Frsiby’s father also called William who was the father of Elizabeth’s child? After all Elizabeth did name her child William Henry. Has anyone ever come across any details relating to this family or any others listed or any information on Hosiery Manufacturers, Frsiby and co, Edward Hopkins, Hopkins and Chawdry, Frisby and Chawdry and Frisby and Jarvis.

Surnames Tuffy & Joyce
My Great Great Great Grandparents Thomas Tuffy and Margaret Histon were married in Stourbridge in 1855. Both originally came frome Ireland. To my knowledge they had four children: John, Margaret, Thomas and William. My Great Great Grandfather was Thomas Jnr. I have census returns for 1861 - 1891 for Thomas and Margaret and their family. The family moved from Stourbridge to Kidderminster sometime between 1871 & 1881. On the 1881 census for Kidderminster they have two cousins living with them; Margaret and Patrick Joice (or Joyce). I would be very interested in any information about either the cousins (Joice) or the siblings of my Great Great Grandfather Thomas Jnr. (John, Margaret and William). I know from my reseach that Margaret married a Martin Cassidy and moved to Coventry but I have no idea what happened to Margaret & Patrick Joice and I have no information about John or William Tuffy. I think it's important to state that I have come across various spellings of the name Tuffy, such as Tuffey, Toughey, Tuffee and Tuffie. I would be grateful for any further information or establishing a possible connection. Best Wishes Kevin
