I asked about brothers or sisters and only came up with the names Chunkey
and Pepermint Joe

That kind of thing sounds familiar - I got the same sort of answer from older relatives when first starting out in my family history.  All the male relatives that could be recalled were known by some kind of nickname whilst the girls and women were known by their usual names.  I did, eventually, get to locate the "true" names for most of them ::)

Perhaps "Peppermint Joe" is a Joseph but "Chunky" - who knows ??? ;D

Casalguidi :)

Perhaps Charles, like Chuck/Chucky :-\

Same with my family although I have gg grandad called Cecil who was called Dosher and sometimes just Boy even into his 90s.

I have the Taylor tree that contains Jerimiah & Augusta.
There are quite a few Taylor researchers so I wonder if you are a member of the Romany & Traveller FHS, which is where a lot of the Taylor researchers are.  They had a Romany reunion a few years ago.  They are also the ones involved with the Hartlake disaster, which is well documented.  Jerimiahs parents were Jerimiah & Sarah.  Get back to me if you need more info and are still researching Taylors.
Thanx
