Stoke ?? Shropshire (HAMLET)
« on: Wednesday 13 April 11 17:27 BST (UK) »
My GG Grandfather was John HAMLET. According to the 1871 census - by which time he had moved to Birkenhead - he was born circa 1821 in "Shropshire - Stoke". I'm no expert on Shropshire but I am aware there are various "Stokes" - Stoke upon Tern, Church Stoke, Stoke Heath etc.

Is there one simply called or known as "Stoke"?  ... or can anyone suggest how I might narrow my search down?
Thanks
Ray

Do you have Johns and Lydias Marriage Cert?
If so his Fathers name and occp may help in tracking down a Chrisitening for him.
I noticed in 1861 he is down as born c 1816 Stok, Shropshire, so not much help there either.

Not yet Trish. Looks like they were married in Liverpool in 1849 but I need to check this.

This branch of my family weren't very good with dates - according to the '71 census he was -5 in 1816! I've not actually checked 1861 - where was he?

Thanks for looking
Ray

Marriage Cert has Father as Joseph ;)
Just found it in someones Tree and looked at it;
So the John 08 February 1818, Stoke Upon Tern, Shropshire, to JOSEPH and MARTHA may be correct.
Back soon,
Trish :)
