Back to your message Re: 1891 census, 4 Dunstall Street, Wolverhampton, George Howe and wife Martha and children and George's  mother, Mary HOWE (widow) 65 - etc. etc ? asked the question who is Mary's husband and George's father etc.

Family Search has the Marriage of George HOWE to Martha PRICE - 27 March 1880 Wolverhampton - Christ Church.

George HOWE  - aged 25  - residence: Fox Lane

No surname quoted in your reply, but assume by looking at Family Search - and your name interests - the parents are John and Hannah BROOM.

Reading Public Members Tree on Ancestry.

Elizabeth BROOME - married Edward HOLT - 6 August 1838, Weston Under Lizard, Staffordshire.

John BROOME married Sarah Anne MORRALL, 22 December 1839, Kemberton, Shropshire.

If you read the article (and there are others) - Gilpins employed lots of men - and it does goes on to say
Gilpins basin on the Wyrley Bank branch, located near to upper Landywood and the new cemetery, had a mineral railway associated with it, the mineral railway ran from the basin to Great Wyrley Collier and from there up to the tool works adjacent to the A34.

This area of Staffordshire - was a huge Coal Mining area - and Cannock where I live, many people came from all over the Country to work down the mines.
