Hi Celia

I'm not researching the Danks family - but I have come across one in my family searches - thought it may be of interest to you:

Florence Danks (30) marr. Cyril Frank Thursfield (31) (widower) Jan 17 1920, Parish Church, Netherton, Dudley. Florence's father was William Danks, a labourer; her residence at time of marr. was 9 Cinder Bank, Dudley. witnesses William & Elsie Danks.

Cheers, Jeanette
Thursfield
Hawkins
Green
Shenton
Wheatley

I am not researching Danks but they seem to keep cropping up in my Hartshorn research:

1851 Census for St. James Terrace, St. James, Dudley.

Thomas Danks/Head/M/34/Iron stone miner/Dudley, Worcs.
Sophia Danks/Wife/M/35/Dudley
Mary A. Danks/Dau/12/Scholar/Dudley
Henry Oakley/Head/M/26/Lime stone miner/Dudley
Ann Oakley/Wife/M/21/Shipston, Worcs.
Josiah Oakley/Son/1/Dudley

Although these look to be separate families they are listed as being in the same household.

1881 Census for 18 Salop Street, Dudley.  RG11/2875/54 page 31.

Sophia Danks/Head/W/Female/73/Dudley/Nail Maker
Mary A. Hartshorn/Daur/W/Female/42/Dudley/Nail Maker

Hi Jill I think your Danks are a different family/Branch to mine.I have the 1851 census also but for Worcestershire, St Thomas. Cheapside Old dock. Most of my Danks seem to have been glass makers or school teachers.

No problem Celia.   They are not 'my' Danks - they just cropped up!
