 ;D

Anyone wishing for free lookups in 1861 census for Netherton, Halesowen, Lye, Cradley, Quarry Bank, Amblecote, Oldswinford, Kingswinford, Brierley Hill and part of Quinton should have a look at the following link:

http://www.griffs4bears.co.uk/census/scripts/search61.html

Also partial 1901 census for Dudley,Halesowen,Oldbury,Rowley Regis,West Bromwich & Wolverhampton:

http://uk-transcriptions.accessgenealogy.com/Worcs..htm

At the same link you can also find partial bmd for Netherton, Dudley, Haleowen, Cradley Heath, Romsley, Blackheath and Kidderminster churches.

These have certainly aided me quite a few times in my ancestor hunts.

No problem but since I am a slow typist it would help if you paste in the details you have and I can add the rest. Save me typing the names at least!

That would be REALLY great!!  :o
I'll make a list tomorrow as it's getting a bit late and you can do them (or not!) at your leisure. Any help is ALWAYS appreciated.  ;D
Are you restricted to Worcs? My relations love to span the borders into Staffordshire/Shropshire which usually wastes loads of time when I ask any questions and is infuriating for both me and my angelic helper  >:(
TA very much like,
Geoff.

Hi Gardener,
I have attached a text file of my Yeomans families from Worcester with refernces. They all stem from a glass worker from Chance and Hunts called Joseph Yeomans from the 1881 census. He was born ~1834 in Quinton or Oldbury. As you will be able to see I have got no further back in time, but have managed to come forward again quite well. :)
There are still a few gaps that need looking into as I don't have access to either 1891 or 1901.
Of course, most important of all is go further backwards to 1861.
I don't think they appear in the 1871 census as they may have have been in America, but it might be worth a quick look.  ???
Please don't kill yourself as I appreciate there are many others out there who also need help.  ;)
Thanks very much,
Geoff.

Your luck must be in!

R10-2976/36
Oldbury,Ecc dist Christchurch
Rood End
Joseph Yeomans,head,m,36,glass flatterner,Worcs,Oldbury
Ann Yeomans,wife,m,34,Worcs,Oldbury
William Yeomans,son,16,(see below),Worcs,Oldbury
Hannah Yeomans,dau,8,scholar,Worcs,Oldbury
Joseph Yeomans,son,6,scholar,Worcs,Oldbury
Thomas Yeomans,son,2,Worcs,Oldbury
Lucy Yeomans,dau,11 months,Worcs,Oldbury

(William's occupation is given as " which probably indicates the same as his father's, but elsewhere the do is used for ditto so I'm not entirely sure).
I'll have a go at finding them in 1861 tonight or on the weekend. Bye!

Piece of cake!

RG9-2021/16
Sub dist of Oldbury,Hamlet of Warley Wigan,Ecc dist Quinton
Rood End
Joseph Yeomans,head,m,26,glass flatttener,Worcs,Warley Wigan
Ann Yeomans,wife,m,24,Worcs,Warley Wigan
William Yeomans,son,6,scholar,Worcs,Warley Wigan
Mary Ann Yeomans,dau,2,Worcs,Warley Wigan
Elizabeth Yeomans,dau,7 months,Worcs,Warley Wigan

Imagine living at Rood End! Must have been fun ordering a pizza ;D
There was also a family with Joseph (29) and Harriet (31) Yeomans plus children (6 of them) at RG9-21021/10. This family is on the 1881 census too. Don't know if they are related.

Forgot to say that above entries are from Staff census even though Oldbury is in Worcs. I checked the 1851 Worc census (name indexed :)) and Joshua is not there so I presume you need to look in the Staff one for that too and I don't have that I am afraid.

Gardener,  :D
Was away this weekend. You STAR.  8)
Pizza for all at Rood End! What a great name!  :D
Thanks to what you have given me, I have definitely linked to William in the American 1880 census and confirmed my suspected American relations HOORAY!  ;D
Thanks very much,
Geoff.
