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?
