Oh, thanks for that. I must have missed these on my first round because I saw Walls and discounted them, I think.

Can you see the occupations on the first four children I mentioned (Sabina, Ezra, James, Mary Ann)?

Another bit of learning for me for today:
"Haft Presser - Employed in the Sheffield cutlery industry pressing bone/horn into knife handles (hafts). 19c."

Edit: And having just looked up Nether Hallam, am further informed: "HALLAM (NETHER), a township and a sub-district in Sheffield parish and Ecclesall-Bierlow district, W. R. Yorkshire." - so I will take these place names into account when I start re-checking those death records tomorrow.

I wonder why the 1788 Thomas  - parents William & Martha was disregarded  :-\ 

I will come back to this later while you are sleeping - try not to think about it or you will be lying awake  :)

Yes, I don't know - no reason given, but it shows that someone decided this in 2013: https://www.familysearch.org/tree/person/possible-duplicates/L4BZ-1BP. Perhaps I'll try messaging him tomorrow if something doesn't become apparent.

Thanks for all of your help, Rosie. When I come back to it with fresh eyes tomorrow and review all of the new information, something may leap out at me, or I may find something by searching on the new leads you have provided, so please don't feel that you must spend more time on it. I must get to bed and read my book for a while so that I'm not lying awake puzzling over this!  :)

F M P have images for some Sheffield PR's

What are PR's, Rosie (or anyone)?

I have been slowly building the profiles for this tree and so far it seems to point to this Thomas being the 1788 one. When I have finished adding all of the details and evidence, I will email the FS person and ask if they can look at my tree on Geni and see what they think.

I have also speculatively added Temple as Eliza Wall's birth name, this being the only birth in Tamworth in 1795 that matches. I haven't found a marriage record to a Mr Wall, so if anyone can shed any further light on this or other possibilities, that would be good - but I'm not too fussed about that branch of the family so not serious if not found.

(My time on this might be patchy over the next day or two, but will update you with any further findings or insights.)

Sorry, Parish registers.  Another abbreviation we tend to use is BT's which are the Bishops transcipts of the parish registers

I did look again at this yesterday but progressed no further with Thomas.
