The 1861 Census for Wednesfield  lists the following families Boswell, Lovell, Cashmore. living in tents in BUGGINS Lane Wednesfield. Occupations Travelling Braziers 9 menders of pots and pans) and a Clothes peg Dealer.

Does any one know the location of Buggins lane?

I'm lead to believe that "Buggins Lane" became "Deans Road" and that it was next to an open heath area (possibly the one that still exists north of Deans Road) or part of what is now "Heath Town". I've been looking into this myself, due to the following burial record in the same location 10 years previous, and it specifically mentions "Buggins Lane Heath";

County    Staffordshire
Place    Wednesfield
Church name    St Thomas
Register type    Unspecified
Register entry number    21553
Burial date    11 Mar 1851
Person age    7
Burial person forename    Hannah
Burial person surname    LOVELL
Burial person abode    Buggins Lane Heath

Hope this is of some help to you!

Does anyone know of any Romany gypsy settlement or camp in Penkridge, Staffordshire?  I'm trying to find out more about my 3g grandfather william Riley, b. around 1775 in Staffordshire, according to the 1841 census,  There is a William born to a Jane Riley  in Penkridge in 1771.  I got a DNA match to someone with an ancestor born in Brewood, Staffordshire in 1802.  This ancestor's father was not named.  But the amount of DNA suggests a 3g grandparent would be the link, and this match has about the same amount of Romany "South Asia" as my brother does.  Brewood and Penkridge appear to be around 5 miles (8 km) apart.
