Re the transcripts, I am interested in 1812 Job Allen born....I am assuming that you can view these either online or at the archives there? Am in Nottingham so not easy for me to visit but thanks.

They're not on-line.  If I get the chance, I'll pop over to Lichfield this week (bus pass and 7-day weekends) and check out the BT's.  It's always a pleasure to go to the Archives, and I'll use them while I'm still able (I'm hating the idea of it all moving to Stafford  >:( >:( >:( )

Hi:  I've been to Lichfield, and there is bad news  :'(

Coverage of BT's for Brimington is - baptisms 1800-1805 and then 1813 onwards, and the same for burials.  The 1800-1805 records are on two separate sheets of parchment.  1813 onwards are the printed pages.

The only instance of the Allen surname was a burial - 31 August 1803, Margaret, daughter of Robert and Jane Allen.

The next instance of the Allen surname is the baptism of Sabra, daughter of Joseph (a Collier) and Mary Allen of Brimington - 25 September 1814.  And this baptism is available to view via Ancestry.

Very sorry  :'(

Well I can't thank you enough for looking anyway, it was very kind and I am very grateful.....all the pieces fit for Jobs parents to be a Joseph and Mary...with siblings Robert Sabra and Sabina and possibly more.... I think I may have to concede defeat and end the tree with Job and leave the rest just as possibilities! Thanks again for your very kind help.

When Job married Eleanor Bradley in 1846 one of the witnesses at the marriage was Samuel Ashmore. It is quite likely that this was the Samuel Ashmore married to Sabina Allen in 1838 which probably gives a bit more weight to Job and Sabina being siblings?
