Greetings from Kansas City, Missouri USA

Seeking information on Phillips/Giles Families, Warwickshire, Birmingham/help with Parish Registers

My Grandfather, George Frederick Phillips was born Feb. 1873 in Warwickshire, Birmingham and was the son of:

John Phillips, birth around 1828, his occuption was Brass Founder.
Sarah A. (Giles) Phillips, possibly from Deritend. Her father was Thomas Giles, wire weaver and her mother's name may have been Mary Ann.

John and Sarah married August 7, 1848 at St. Peter/St. Paul's Church in Aston Parish. Both gave their address as Deritend. On the Marriage Banns, John's father is listed as John Phillips, Gludd Cutter(?)

I believe I have located John and Sarah in the following census's

1851 Potters Field, Aston, Erdington

John -23- Journeyman Brass Laborer, born in Warwickshire, Birmingham
Sarah -21- born in Warwickshire, Birmingham
Henry -1 -born in Warwickshire, Birmingham

1861 Warwickshire, Rottingham

John -32 - Gold Chain Maker-Warwickshire, Birmingham
Sarah -32- Warwickshire, Birmingham
Henry -11- Gold Chainmaker-Warwickshire, Birmingham
Ester -5 Warwickshire, Birmingham
Sarah A. (infant)-Warwickshire, Birmingham

(Sarah A. (infant), does not appear on any other census, I believe she died in 1861)

1871 Ladywood, Warwickshire, Birmingham

John -43 - Glass Fitting Maker-Warwickshire, Birmingham
Sarah 43- Warwickshire, Birmingham
Ester -15- Button Maker-Warwickshire, Birmingham
Thomas- 7- Warwickshire, Birmingham
Martha -4- Warwickshire, Birmingham

1881 Lower King Edwards Road. This information is from FamilySearch and gives limited details

John - 53
Sarah - 52
Thomas - 17
Martha -14
George- 8

(John does not appear on any future census)

1891 Rotton Park, Edgbaston, 602h Stour St.

Sarah -63 - Widow-Warwickshire, Birmingham
George F. Phillips -18 - Brass Founder-Warwickshire, Birmingham

1901 Aston Manor, 139 Berners St., Lozelles, St. Silas

Sarah -72 -Widow-Warwickshire, Birmingham
George F. - 28 -Insurance Agent-Warwickshire, Birmingham
Ada Violet Sherlock -28 - Boarder, Tailoress (this is George's future wife)-Warwickshire, Birmingham

(Sarah does not show after 1901 census)

1911 90 Carlyle Road, Aston Manor

George Frederick Phillips-38- Insurance Agent
Ada Violet Phillips-38- Home Duties
Lillian Violet Phillips-3 Aston


I have found several possible death records on BMD but since very little personal information is given I am not certain that I am looking at the right people.

Sarah Ann Phillips(child)- Death Sep. 1861- District-Aston, Vol. 6d, Page 164 -No age listed
John Phillips-Death Sept.1883-District-Aston, Vol. 6d, Page 232-Age 56
Sarah A. Phillips-Death Dec. 1910-District-Aston, Vol 6d, Page 208-Age 82

Also have George Frederick's Christening date as Dec. 12, 1873 Warwickshire, Birmingham but no names of his parents.

Any help would be appreciated, living in the US makes visiting the area difficult) Wish I had known all these things as a child when I visited family in Birmingham and London frequently.

Wow, you guys are fast! Hit the 'send' button before I went to bed and woke up to a dull and dreary morning, until I saw an email from Rootschat! I felt like a child on Christmas morning.

Many thanks to brenter boy, rosie99 and jim1. I will take all this new info and sit down with a cuppa tea while I review everything. Looks like I will be spending some money in the near future.

Spending money is anathema to us, come here first before doing it.
Had a quick look at Thomas Giles & (Mary) Ann Warwick & there are 2 Baptisms for each at around the same time in B'ham so could be a bit tricky.
