Can anyone Help ?? Place Name.
« on: Wednesday 22 September 04 19:50 BST (UK) »
Hoping someone with contacts with Staffordshire might be able to help on the place of birth of my GtGtGrandfather...
John Davies was according to the 1881 census, born Staffordshire.
The 1871...is the mystery..the enumerator has seen fit to put a  black line through most of the place name...
It would appear to start with the letter  T  and then 2 other letters ??
Any clues out there ???
Finding a John Davies with a father John Davies was never going to be easy..but the enumerator has just made it twice as difficult..
Be grateful for any help....
Many thanks..

There are not many towns and villages beginning with T in Staffs. Those with quite short names, listed in likely order from your description are:
Tixall
Trysall
Tipton
 :-\
Southern or Southan [Hereford , Monmouthshire & Glos], Jenkins, Meredith and Morgan [Monmouthshire and Glos.], Murrill, Damary, Damry, Ray, Lawrence [all Middx. & London], Nethway from Kenn or Yatton. Also Riley and Lyons in South Africa and Riley from St. Helena.

Many thanks..but it does seem that there are only three letters. it has been suggested it might very well start with a  L  ie;  Lee or Lea ?? its very faded.

No short village names with L. The best idea is, as Mick put the image here and someone will solve  it  we always do.
Southern or Southan [Hereford , Monmouthshire & Glos], Jenkins, Meredith and Morgan [Monmouthshire and Glos.], Murrill, Damary, Damry, Ray, Lawrence [all Middx. & London], Nethway from Kenn or Yatton. Also Riley and Lyons in South Africa and Riley from St. Helena.
