Hi, there is this marriage:

Joseph Felton m Ann Simmons 3/9/1809 All Saints, Wellington, Shropshire (close to Dawley)  and I think this 1849 death might be Joseph, burial 4 Feb 1849 Age 77 so a calculated birth year of 1772.

This might be Joseph in the 1841 Census: HO107/Piece 904/Book 10/Folio 44/Page 31
living at Forge Rowe, Dawley, Magna, Madeley, Shropshire, England (poosibly with a married daughter?)

I have a James Felton in my tree.  He was a Ground Bailiff ? where.  His daughter Ellen Felton married James Tranter of Acrefair, Ruabon in 1841.  Sadly she died soon after marriage probably in childbirth, no living child of issue though.

James Tranter and his family, father was Samuel Tranter married Maria Tolley originally came from Dawley Magna.  I think James Felton might also come from Dawley, although Ellens place of residence was Acrefair at time of marriage.  I cannot find her place of birth but it might be Dawley although I have Acrefair 1814 in the absence of any other information.

James married again and it is through his 2nd wife that my line descends.  I am interested in The Feltons though because Ancestry DNA gives a match to the Felton Family through a marriage with an Elizabeth Tranter of Dawley, so it looks as if there was a long standing friendship between the 2 families.  Also because Elizabeth is a Tranter that is how the DNA is related to me, although I again cannot place her parents for certain.

I am not sure if anyone can help with this certainly some info about James Felton would be nice, but I also thought it might help with the above query.  Jenny
