Family History Beginners Board / Re: Redding

Many thanks for the help in this.  Unable to prove yet that Thomas and Ann stayed in Aston/Birmingham, but most of the decending family have been traced to that area.  Work varies from bricklayer to farm labourer throughout.  Have found a Thomas on his own in a Lodging house in Birmingham later life but yet to prove.  The Slater information has been a great help, now found they eventually had seventeen children in Shustoke /Whitacre (two died).  Poor woman must have been worn out!!  As Shustoke and Whitacre were only, and still are very small villages, they must have took over the place.  Can see where I was going up the wrong path now, thank you again for your help.

Thank you for the reply.  Have the marriage certificate of Thomas Redding/Ann Slater June 24th 1839.  Both "of Full Age", presume that means 21years old, or does that mean he was over 21years.  His father is  a Thomas Redding a Rake Maker as occupation.

Thank you for the reply. Redding pre 1840 is main interest at the moment.    Found marriage of Thomas and Ann Redding (nee Slater) in Trininty street Birmingham in 1839, but unable to locate them prior to that.
