Joseph & Susannahís eldest son was called Edwin. He died in Canada.
On Josephís headstone, it says that he originated in Staffordshire

I think he is the top one, parents Hannah & James. The other parents i have for him from various sources are John Gaunt & Mary Littleton.  I just cannot ascertain which are the right parents & I find that very frustrating.

Nothing official, no, but all the dates match up with him & his family. I have him down as being born in Marchington, Staffs in 1792 son of Hannah Wright & James Gaunt or on Ancestry born to Mary Littleton & John Gaunt. I havenít a clue which one is right.

I have an account of their journey to Canada in 1850 which was documented by someone who descends from the family in Canada & all the names match with the 1841 census in Stretton on Fosse, Warwickshire.

Thank you for that. Yes, that is my Joseph but it is his parents who Iím uncertain about.
There is quite an interesting story about Joseph & Susannah. In 1850 they sailed from Liverpool to Canada & walked over 400Kms to a plot of land given to settlers. It was covered with trees which they cleared & then farmed. When they did the walk, the youngest boy was just 7 & they carried all their belongings with them.
