George Handley
« on: Wednesday 24 May 17 19:24 BST (UK) »
Thanks everyone for your help with the Fredericks.
This time the mystery couple are George Handley born 1840 to Richard Guy Handley and Mary Jesson.
in Birmingham. I have details of him until he marries Mary Ann Collins in 1866 then nothing.
But it makes it difficult as there seem to be several George Handleys at this time in this area.
Any ideas anyone???

Hi,

Do you know of any children they had?

If not have you looked at the GRO website for births of Handley children with mother's maiden name Collins?

Wow thankyou. I have been looking for ages but mostly on Ancestry website will try GRO website. I had presumed they might have died or moved away but I was obviously not looking in the right places.
Thanks for your help.

You may already have this but just in case....

It's quite possible the 1872 death for George is correct as the Co. was called Richard Guy Handley & Son up to 1873. The Son was dropped after this date.

I think he also had another son named Richard Guy too, maybe he didn't go into business with them?
Is this the Millstone making and importing Business?
