Hello Polly

Joseph was my GGG Grandfather!  What would you like to know?

Joseph and Sarah only had one child that I can find at the moment.  Both Joseph and Sarah had been widowed before they got married.

Joseph (1818) married Eliza Birch (parents Joseph and Hannah Birch) who was baptized 12 may 1830.

Joseph and Eliza had 4 children but only 1 made it through childhood:-

Mary Ann - Died 26 April 1860 aged 3 years
Smith Deaville - Died 15 Dec 1862 aged 3 days
Olive Deaville - Died 20 Dec 1869 aged 9 years
Charles Deaville - Died 10 Nov 1918 aged 60 years

Eliza Birch died in 1863 aged 32 Years.  Joseph then married Charlotte Fisher at St. Lukes Church, Leek in 1865.  Charlotte Died in 1873 aged 56 Years.  Joseph (1818) died in 1888 aged 69.

Charles Deaville married Mary Ellen Bailey in 1880 in Leek, Staffordshire and had the following children:-

Olive - Born 1880 (my G Gran)
Joseph - Born 1883
Charles Edward - Born 1886
Lilian - Born 1888

I've got more info if you like which will lead you to me.

I'd love to hear from you to see where you come into the grand scale of things....

Hi Wendy.

I had an interesting piece of info the other day off a rellie, who said that Doug's mum (Elsie Maud Machin nee Duckworth) re-married before she left for distant shores, to a fella possibly called Stevenson.

I'm guessing that this may broaden my search somewhat as Doug may have been using the Stevenson surname.  If so i don't reckon i've got any chance of finding him!!

I'm looking for any info on my Dad's cousin Douglas Machin.  His mother moved to Australia after his father was killed during the 2nd World War.  Douglas was born in 1944, his mother was Elsie Maud ?????.  she re-married before she left to a fella called Stephenson we think.

I know all of this is a bit vague but it's all I've got.  I'd love to find Doug so that my Dad can contact him.

Thanks in advance.
