1871 census Staffs - Acton
« on: Tuesday 31 August 04 15:34 BST (UK) »
I am looking for info on 1st wife of William Acton born abt 1840 in Tipton, Staffs. There were two children  Edward  abt 1864 and Phoebe abt 1868, all in Tipton.
I am having great difficulty in getting a name for wife.
He later remarried abt 1875 to Alice and had 3 more children, all in Tipton.

Any help appreciated.

Looked on BVRI and found a possible for his second marriage to ALice

ACTON, William         Marriage
   Wife:   Alice NOCK      
   Marriage Date:   20 Jun 1875   Recorded in:   Sedgley, Staffordshire, England
   Husband's Father:   Edward ACTON
   Wife's Father:   Isaac NOCK
Source:   FHL Film 1040795   Dates:   1873 -

These are baptisms  that could possible be your Williams

ACTON, Phoebe Ann   Christening
   Gender:   Female
   Christening Date:   14 Jun 1871   Recorded in:   West Bromwich, Staffordshire, England
   Father:   William ACTON
   Mother:   Sarah Ann
Source:   FHL Film 1526218   Dates:   1858 - 1888   

ACTON, Edwin   Christening
   Gender:   Male
   Christening Date:   14 Jun 1871   Recorded in:   West Bromwich, Staffordshire, England
   Father:   William ACTON
   Mother:   Sarah Ann
Source:   FHL Film 1526218   Dates:   1858 - 1888   
ACTON, Elizabeth   Christening
   Gender:   Female
   Christening Date:   14 Jun 1871   Recorded in:   West Bromwich, Staffordshire, England
   Father:   William ACTON
   Mother:   Sarah Ann
Source:   FHL Film 1526218   Dates:   1858 - 1888   

if these are the right children, remember they are christening dates not birth dates and often a family of children were baptised together.

Found this as a possible on free bmd, maybe you could obtain a death certificate to verify the correct person.

ACTON  Sarah Ann  30  Dudley  6c 31

Dudley area does cover Tipton.

Hope this helps and good luck.
