Hi Nora,
I have had a look at this site and Chell is under the name of Wolstanton & Burslem. Any records are kept at the Stoke on Trent city archives, a link is given. Hope this may help.
Good Luck, Frances

Nora, if you are looking at the workhouse records yourself could you by any chance keep an eye out for any references to my relatives who were there close to when yours were?  They are Margaret Ford, who was in the workhouse in 1891 and 1901, her son Patrick, who was there in 1891 and died, presumably there, in 1893, and her daughter Bridget, who was there in 1891 with her mother but got out when she got old enough to work?  I am not sure why Margaret's extended family (her maiden name was Morris) didn't feel able to help support them, not that any of them were rich, when Margaret's husband died.  Her dad Joseph Morris died there too in 1895, but I think it may have been because he had dementia and the family couldn't cope.  Good luck finding your relatives, anyhow, whether or not you have time to check for mine.

hello  corinne, i am afraid, i have been side tracked, looking for my, timmis family, so have not, been in touch with staffs archives yet about the workhouse, where  my peter mullery {mulroy} died in 1890,  he died to early to be on the census, i only found out through his death cert,   it is strange you are looking for  fords in staffs, as my brother in law harry ford, has just started getting interested, in finding out about his family, as his father, another harry ford died, when harry jr, was only  a very small child, about 1942, his mother remarried, and had other children, and his grandfather was named joseph ford, and i think he said they came from hanley  staffs,he said they were very poor,  i just wondered if they had any connection to your fords,  but it is quite a common name, so may be not, regards nora.

It is quite a common name, but what I didn't mention is that Margaret Ford had two other children, Mary E Ford and Joseph Ford, who were old enough to miss going into the workhouse by being employed.  Joseph was born about 1875 in Tunstall from the census - registration looks like Sept quarter 1874 from freeBMD - so it is quite possible from the dates that he could have been your brother-in-law's grandfather, if I've understood correctly.  The last I know of my Joseph Ford is the 1901 census when he was single and a boarder at 20 Hall St, Tunstall, so no Hanley connection unless he moved there later.  But Joseph is quite a common name too of course.  He was a coal miner.

hello corinne, thanks for the reply, i think your joseph ford could possibly  be my brother in laws great granfather,  but it could be his granfather?  he gave me very little to go on,as he does not even know for certain when his dad died, only that he was a baby,at the time, and he remembers his grandads name was joseph, his father must have died in the early 1940s .and they came from hanley, i have looked on staffs bmd , but did not find much at all,and until harry can come up with a bit more info, i can go no further for him as i have my own family, to search for,  so thanks again for your reply. regards nora T
