Thomas family in/around Buttington
« on: Saturday 18 March 17 14:17 GMT (UK) »

I need some help in unravelling my Thomas family in and around Buttington.

I have the following entry in the 1841 census:
Piece:1442 Book:1 Folio:9 Page:9
WilliamThomas      75      
MarthaThomas      55      
ArthurThomas      10   
Mary Thomas        5

I have Arthur and Maryís baptism from the Buttington PRs; parents William and Martha:
Arthur   5th Dec 1830      abode Cletterwood   fatherís occupation   Labourer
Mary      11th May 1834      Cletterwood      Labourer

But the age differences between William, Martha and Arthur and Mary seem high ?

I have both William and Marthaís burials from the Buttington PRs:
William Thomas buried at Buttington, 3rd March 1842, aged 76, abode Cletterwood.
Martha Thomas buried at Buttington, 18th June 1866, aged 77, abode Cletterwood.

Also from the Buttington PRs, baptisms with parents William and Martha Thomas:
Jane      31st May 1814      Buttington
Margret   18th April 1819      Cletterwood   Farmer
Frances   3rd Nov 1821      Cletterwood   Farmer
John      24th May 1829      Cwmsale      Farmer

So problems, would a farmer become a Labourer and/or is this one family, two or more?

Canít find a birth for William or a marriage for William and Martha.

Can anyone help unravel this?

Thank-you

Maurice

Hi
Have you seen this marriage over the border in Shropshire at Shelve?
William Thomas widower and Martha Price 23.1.1812
wit Thomas and Sarah Price.
It might explain the age difference.
