Just thanks.

They were Boatmen from the beginning until my Grandfather , who had a coal Wharf... all very uncivilised!! and then they became Publicans.

I will continue in my search for the early famillies............ just thanks for your help.

 It's possible they were moored out of enumerators reach in 1841. Well that's what I'm thinking about my Whitehouses.!!

Hi...
Think that I could agree with you on that one.

Parrish spent  her valuable time yesterday afternoon looking for my Turton family and was not very successful.[it must have been so so frustrating]
She found 2 children  but the others of the family were not forthcoming................... very difficult.
 I know they were on the canals but WHERE...[speak to me !! wave your hand and stop hiding!!!]   maybe they are with your Whitehouses!!

Re the Turtons.  I have John Turton on my family tree.  Married Harriet Webley or Webberley 15/11/1868 at Wolverhampton, Harriet being the sister of my GGrandfather's second wife Eliza Lunt nee Webley.

How wonderful, I am so pleased.
I have spent all winter and the last 20 years looking for the family of John Turton.
Harriet married William Turton, who was the son of John.

they had many many children but as far as I can find out only 2 survived and married, a son called Richard and a daughter Ellen.

If you would like to share any more of the family with me, I would happily share my knowledge with you.

Glad to help Sallie.  Send me a personal message, and we can swap data.  Would love to know more about the Turtons, and I know someone else who also connects who would like to know too.
Also have more data on the Webleys, who connect in to a lot more canal families.
It's great when this happens out of the blue!!!!!

Need to make a correction anyway for those reading this thread in the future,  Had a bit of a rush of blood to the head when I read these posts!  It was John Turton's son William who married Harriet Webley!  Sorry folks.
