Staffordshire / Re: Benjamin Ainesworth married Sarah Cartwright 1788.

Hello Ciderdrinker, sorry I'm a bit late with my reply, I've been at a family get together this afternoon to celebrate my birthday.

You've confirmed some information we already have. Stephen James 1835 is my gt. gt. grandfather who married Emma Spilsbury, that is where the Ainsworth / Ensor name crept in. There are posts on Rootschat about them a few years back.

We know that the children were split up when Stephen snr. and Elizabeth Guy died.

Thank you for the additional information which I'll make a note of.

Happy New Year.

Bearnan.

Hello Ciderdrinker. Since my previous post I've discovered 'your' Stephen Ainsworth was christened 23 April 1794 and his burial 17 May 1794 both at St. Giles, Willenhall. oops!

I'm stuck now with Stephen Hainsworth who married Elizabeth Guy on 23 December 1810. I don't know where to go from there. I think it's my brickwall. Doesn't help with all the name variations, another I've come across is Hansworth.

Hello Ciderdrinker,  my maternal grandfather was Benjamin Ainsworth, the name's come down through the family either as a first or middle name, the last being my uncle who died last year leaving no son to carry on the name on our line.

My gt. gt. gt. grandfather Stephen, birth estimated 1787,baptised 1794  married as Hainsworth in 1810 to Elizabeth Guy in Deritend.

I think Stephen is possibly the son of Benjamin and Sarah from Willenhall. On our line I've come across Hainsworth, Aynesworth, Hainsworth and Ensor, someone once said that Ainsworth could sound like Ensor in a local accent and with a few teeth missing!

Wishing everyone a happy Christmas.

Went over the road to see the Commonwealth Games baton relay go by earlier. There was a reasonable turnout considering it started at 8 o'clock. It was good to see smiling faces even if it was drizzling with rain.

My mind went back to the 2012 Olympic torch relay which we saw in Earlswood, so much has changed since then.

Home and back to reality to an email about my new Electricity tariff.

Love the diary thread and hope everyone is well.

Hello cousin Andrew  :) good to see you are a match to my sisters kit number. You're welcome to add our line to your tree if you wish, I would like to add yours if possible, you could PM me. Your Caroline and my Samuel were siblings born to John Phillips 1782 and Catherine (Charles??).

My 3 x grandfather Samuel Phillips 1826 - 1892 and Emily Ness 1829.-1892 were married 9th August 1847 at St. Martins, Birmingham. 9 children.

2 x grandfather John Phillips born 10th April 1851 at Grosvenor Street. He married Harriet Selina Hayes 1853 - 1916 on 19th May 1872 at St. James the Less, Birmingham. 8 children.
Johns brother Samuel was married to Harriets sister. Harriet was born in Hampton in Arden. I don't know when John died.

Great grandfather Albert Phillips 1873 - 1949 married Sarah Wall 1868 - 1901
on 24th October 1893 at St.Johns, Deritend. 2 children.
Albert joined the Duke of Cornwalls light infantry on 12th July 1891 and dipped in and out of service. He was sent to South Africa and while he was away Sarah died in the courtyard of her home on 15 December 1901.Death certificate says probably heart failure..
While he was away Sarahs sister Jane (Mary Jane) came to look after my grandmother and her brother and never left. Albert and Jane went on to have 3 children together but they never married. On the 1911 census it states that they had been married 17 or 18 years but that is not true,the dates just happen to coincide with the number of years Sarah and Albert would have been married in 1911.

My grandmother Celia Grace Phillips 1895-1965 married my grandad Benjamin Charles Ainsworth 1892-1950
They married January 1917 at the Registry Office, Birmingham. Grandad was injured and on crutches when he married nan, injury sustained in France.

They went on to have four children.

Hope this is of interest, PM me if you want.

Annbee, I agree entirely. Most of my ancestors lived in the back to back houses which were cramped and overcrowded. Dad used to say to us that the past was in the past and that was where it should stay,we had to tread very carefully.

We started delving because we wanted to find out about his beloved maternal grandmother who he adored. We did find and visit her grave for him. We also found out that her father was a bigamist at least twice over..... We never did tell dad!
