Hannah Collins born Kidderminster c1793
« on: Wednesday 03 January 18 14:44 GMT (UK) »
I'm searching for Hannah Collins born in Kidderminster, Worcestershire (or nearby) c1793.
I believe that she's my 4th great grandmother.

She had a relative called Elizabeth Collins, (possibly her sister), as a witness when she married William Woodward in Aston juxta Birmingham, Warwickshire in 1825.

William was a widower but Hannah is on the marriage entry as a spinster so was around 31 years old when she married for the first time. William Woodward was about the same age and also born outside of Birmingham/Warwickshire area (location as yet unknown) and died in Erdington (now part of Birmingham) before the 1851 census was taken.

Any parish register information (e.g baptism or Collins family members) for Kidderminster would be greatly appreciated. I'll also share any information I already have with interested parties.

Many thanks.
Steve

Hi
If Elizabeth is the 26 year old who marries in 22.7. 1827 to Samuel Walter also at Aston St PP then she looks to be baptised at Kidderminster 19 Sep 1800 to Thomas and Elizabeth Collins.
Other children for them all from Transcripts
Sarah 10 May 1793
James 1.1.1795
Mary 2.3.1798
Joseph 6.7.1804
Thomas 6.3.1807 age 1
Henry 27 Dec 1809/18 Feb 1810

Thomas married Elizabeth Bowyer 17th July 1792.

As you can see there is no Hannah.

That's the nearest i can find
Sorry

Hello Ciderdrinker,

Many thanks for your kind message. Yes I agree, I found this family but as I couldn't find a Hannah Collins on the register, I put them to one side and searched for any other Collins family in the Kidderminster area that may have a Hannah from that time.

It could still be the family I'm looking for if for some reason Sarah changed her name to Hannah but this is unlikely I know, maybe Hannah was born out of wedlock prior to 1793? Was Sarah a twin? I'll have to check.

I really appreciate your help. many thanks.
