Could go nuts.. census hunt
« on: Saturday 16 September 17 05:30 BST (UK) »

1841 census
       William Castle born abt 1816 Radford
       Sarah Castle  born     1821 Radford     
       Mirah Castle born 1839         Radford   

I have the family in the other census  .  They ended living in Staffordshire. eg 1851 Pelsell 

Married Jun 1839 Rushall Staffordshire

 His father was Joseph Castle and Sarah father was    William Sparkes

 There is a Joseph Castle with a son William in 1841 census but as  there is no Sarah or Mirah figure this isn't his family   '. Mirah has variety of spellings

I have in my notes William Castle with William and Charlotte    ( I presume  Sparkes as they are his wife parents) Very clever of me not having more details, was done in my early days of researching.. sighhhhhh     

For the life of me I can not find that record again 

Soooo if any one can put me out of misery be most grateful. 

Thanking you

Hello Eds,
I can't find them on the 1841 either, however ... I realise Sarah's surname is transcribed as SPARKS on Free BDM, but the children (except Myra who I can't find) have mother's maiden name PARKES (or PARKS) on the GRO search.

Henry CASTLE      mmn  PARKS    1842  J Qtr RADFORD (15/621)
George CASTLE    mmn  PARKES  1844  D Qtr  RADFORD (15/604)
Mary CASTLE        mmn PARKES   1850  D Qtr WALSALL (17/235)
(Can't find Ann's registration?)
Charlotte CASTLE  mmn  PARKES  1854  S Qtr WALSALL (06B/472)
Esther CASTLE      mmn  PARKES  1857  J Qtr  WALSALL (06B/562)

Modified to add: good find Kay  ;)

Maddy - I also found the Parkes maiden name births. I wonder if the 1839 marriage is the right family

Wow, ta muchly every one.
The multi million $ q now is.. Why William with his parents and Sarah with her parents in 1841 census. The marr cert clearly shows SPARKES. Mirah was born 3 mths before they married. They had a son John who was born and died in 1840. Maybe they had troubles and went to parents?
Am curious abt the PARKS/ SPARKES. Someone's hearing dodgy?

Once again thanks for your help and saving my sanity
