Hi Diane.

Yes familys had it bad in them times doing a family tree back
to 1700 you find a lot of hard times especially the amount of
children that died young in them days, if there is anything you need
to ask please do i have had a lot of help from my second cousin who
we came across through the family tree and i class her as a expert in family
history because she says everything must be proved with certificates and baptism info
she has gone back to the 1500 on her familys tree.

Happy new year to you and your family Keith.

Hi Diane.

Found the 1881 census were catherine is back in astley age 55 with son benjamin age 21
living with her brother thomas stanley, catherine is down as a servant and john a labourer.

You know john died age 45 in Bham well the reason catherine came back to astley after
john died he was in a fatal accident in Granville street Bham i have the coroners report
i will email it to you when i get it back from my sisters.

Hi Keith
Yes I did find out about John Shentonís fatal accident.  I would appreciate a copy of the report one day.  Catherineís family split after the 1841 census - something happened at Atcham to do with the Earl who squandered his money and left his staff jobless.  So Catherine went to Bíham and married John Shenton.  The rest I think went to Cardiff to find work and did OK as market gardeners, many are buried at Llandaff Cathedral.  Did you know Catherineís sister Letitia met up with some Latter Day Saints and got a free passage to America. I have more details here and am in touch with a relative of Letitia.   
Iím wondering if Catherine and her family got involved with the Peaky Blinders as they lived in one of the streets in the 1850s etc. I have Carl Chinnís book about them and wouldnít be surprised.  I could send you the book if you like as Iíve read it now, if you donít already have it. 
Itís all very interesting isnít it?
Best wishes
Diana

Hi Diane.
No problem i know about john i thought because in 1881 catherine was in shrops
but when i looked at 1901 census she was with benjamin and family so really it looks like
she died here in 1909 and bens wife julianna died 1911 during child birth.
thanks  Keith.
