An Albert James Pickthall birth is reg'd Dec.1879 Merthyr Tydfil, Glamorgan and a death entry shows for Sept.qtr.1880 Clutton (registration district for Midsomer Norton where family living 1881) so think this may be a child of James and first wife.

I just read the article.  Poor Hannah, poor May.  This is a part of the family history we never knew.

sorry I can't give you the link. I found it by searching through some newspapers which I have access to via my library members card.  Someone else may be able to find you a similar article as it was in more than one newspaper.

James does seem to have moved around presumably with different contracts. That poor rate assessment was 1891 was in Didsbury. In 1892 he was in a bancruptcy court in Brighouse, which if I remember rightly was where one child was born.

I did find a site which lists all the newspapers.  Joined and will purchase.   I'm also going to see if I can obtain his marriage certs from Derby and Hampshire.  They may help in finally determing his birth and parentage.  Thank you!
