Hi, I'm also new to this site and have also reaserched my family trees for my Coburn side and have over the years tried to do my Finney side but have had not much luck. I am wondering if my family is conected to this family as we are also from Stoke on Trent, and Mier and Longton. My grandmother was  Dorothy May Finney born 1928 -1971/ 72, She was married to John Edward Coburn of Mier Stoke on Trent. My grandmother had many brothers and sisters. Her father was Jack Finney born 1904 died 1957 .married to Doris Norbury. And that's when I hit the wall, I just can't seem to find any records before this. However I did find on familysearch.org that there was a Jack finney at the age of 11 in a houshold who the father was a William Finney born 1864 married to Mary Ann..Now in my family,there is a handed down story and my father says that it's what he and his family have always believed, that Jack Finney came from Ireland with his family and they where traverlers(he always uses the name tinkers but i know you shouldnt) and came on their wagon from co. cork. However I have had no luck in finding anything about that at all, and can only seem to find finneys of Elleston and staffordshire.Could we be off the same family. Any help would be very very appreciated...Many Thanks Tom

I have Finney's from Longton area who originated from Ellestone and Wootton but had a brief spell in Ireland as caretaker farmers. They were in Tipperary around the late 1800's before returning to Staffordshire. Unfortunately for you my William Finney was born 1846 and married a mary Malkin

Welcome to Rootschat Tom.

It may be better to start a new query on the Staffs Board to deal with your Family.

In the meantime may I ask if you have Jack/Doris's Marriage Cert?
If so what was his occp and his Fathers name/occp from it, witnesses also?


I did notice Jack was not at home in the 1939 Census.

Also my Father was always known as Jack but his birth name was John and he was born 1907 when that was common.

Hi Trish thanks for the reply and the welcome. I will post to the staffs board thanks for the tip. Unfortunately I don't have there marriage certificate, Just a found file on familysearch.org but their it has no actual scanned copy of the real thing.  But i do know that it was 1927 when they where registered, the same year there first child Jack was born. Jack the son was born 1927  and was buried in Palestine 1946 (in fact that was my first clue I found on CWGC.org, a note from Jack and Doris to their son Jack, and I know my father often mentioned Jack junior) so I knew that that was there names and that they lived in Mier.Jacks wife Doris was a Norbury and i think she was born 1906 died 1971 in Leek. Their children   where Jack, Dorothy May(My grand mother) George, Irene, Brenda, Raymond and Arthur  .But it is possible that GG Jack was a John also, My Grandfather Coburn was also called Jack but his name was realy John.
Geting further back past GG Jack has been very difficult, and the only jack I can find is in Stoke longton, if it is the correct one, is on a 1911 residence cencus, Jack is 7 years old and his father was a William finney born longton 1864 worked as a potters giggeser (my grand mother dorothy also worked  the pottery, but Jack was a coal miner), again I'm not sure if this is right because my father always said Jack came from Ireland, and again I haven't found any matching Jacks their. So it could be that he was a John.
All the best Tom

Unfortunately this is a case where you need to really buy that M/C to follow Jacks Family line.
