Thomas Powell b 1845 Tugford, Shropshire
« on: Sunday 27 August 17 00:14 BST (UK) »
Can anyone help me trace Thomas Powell's parents. He was born 1845 in Tugford, Shropshire, but 1851 census has him not living with parents aged 6 as scholar.

Hi again, in 1841 census the only Ann/Annie in Tugford area is:-

Thomas Powell 45
Mary 45
Ann 15
Residing at Balhams Heath, Tugford
Census ref HO107/913/ 23/2 / 11
Where do you have Thomas b 1845 from the 1851 census?
The baptism of Thomas 1845 gives address of Annie as Balhams Heath

My great grandfather George Powell is living with his father Thomas Powell in the 1881 census. Birth says Munslow, which is near Tugford, but year of birth would be 1843.

My great grandfather George Powell was born in Kemberton in 1879.

Then that is the same family in 1871 census:-

Thomas Powell 26 b TUCKFORD
Harriet 25 b Munslow
Thomas 2 b Worfield
Sarah 7 months b Worfield
Census ref RG10/2745/70/3

Have you the  marriage certificate for Thomas to Harriett?

Yes, he married Harriett Price in 1866 in Bridgenorth. Just still puzzled on Thomas Powell's parentage, as all branches of my family tree go back many generations apart from the Powell's, which is the key one as it is my surname.
Thanks for help so far.
