Wayham's in Warwickshire
« on: Wednesday 03 October 12 22:19 BST (UK) »
Right you are going to have to bare with me... as this is the very first thing i have tried to do on here... and i have no idea what i'm doing.  ???

I am trying to find out about a family of Wayham's from Alcester in Warwickshire. They seem to never register their births, marriages or deaths and i cannot pin any of them down ???

William Wayham (c1830) appears in Staffordshire in Willenhall in 1851 listing Alcester as his place of birth, but i cannot find him barely before or after that. And he is never listed as marrying or dying. But lets face it.. by now he must be no longer of this planet  ;D

In 1871 he pops up elsewhere in Warwickshire with a bunch of children (One of which called Harbutt ???) but if you look at GRO.. none of these children ever appear to have been registered. And they never died or married either. And neither did his wife Hannah.

Anyone want to help give me a clue?!

Much appreciated. And again.. sorry if this is totally the wrong way to use this.

This is carolline who was 1 year old in 1871 born Studely. Looks like you have a lot of spelling variations with which to contend.

1891 census is a bot of a mess. Written on original image name is clearly Wheyham but has been transcribed as Whigham! I have put in two corrections - Wheyham, as per image, and Weyham as per marriage and death records.
