Rainsford family
« on: Monday 28 September 09 11:40 BST (UK) »
I wondered if anyone has Rainsfords in their family?
My great grandmother was Rosina (Rose) b May 10th 1868 in Aston, Birmingham, d 12th May 1946 in Solihull, Warwickshire.
She married William Mitchell (1864 - 5/8/1950) in June 1889 in Birmingham.
She was an umbrella furniture lacquerer and he was a coachman/groom (ref 1891 census) and they lived at that time at 4 Milton Terrace at the back of Alfred Rd, Sparkhill, Birmingham, Warks. There is also a sister-in-law living there called Florence Rainsford.

In 1881 there is a Rainsford family at 99 Emily St, Bordesley, B'ham:
Edward b 1834 (occ Stamper)
Sarah b 1839 (occ 'washing')
Emma b 1861
Edward b 1863 (occ Stamper)
James b 1866
Rose(Rosina?) 1868
John b 1869
George b 1870
Thomas b 1871
Frank b 1874
Sarah b 1875
Emily (no date)
Elizabeth b 1878

The mother, Sarah, could be nee Blackwell but there is also a possible Lapwell but I can find no records for that name.

There may also be an Elizabeth Rainsford b 1858 and a Henry b 1869??

Thanks very much to you all! I don't know how sometimes I miss names in certain census records, I can only put it down to genealogy brain fag, lol!!  ;D

The Conybere ? may well be 'Street' as that is a road in the right vicinity of Birmingham.
 
All info is greatly appreciated.
