Thank you so much for the information.  As I used to live in Wolverhampton I have been in possession of this  for years now, used to use the old record office when it was in W'ton  libruary.
I think I am now at the stage of hoping for unseen information, wherever that might be.
Quite by accident i have found that the Turtons used to live in Barnton Cheshire, this is amazing and I am following that line with great interest. also a number of then lived in Middlewich Cheshire.

Hello all,
I was wondering if anyone had found or knows how to find information on Sarah Cartwright (who married Joseph Turton in 1829 in Wolverhampton). I may be related to Sarah and looking for information on her family.
Thank you!

Hello Cimbrio.
My 3x great grandmother was Sarah Cartwright.
she married Joseph  in 1829 and they had a considerable number of children.
John Born 1829 is my line .
She came from Wombourne in Staffordshire and her family are entered into the Parish registers of St Benedict Wombourne.
