Dudley census - Hollins
« on: Wednesday 18 July 18 16:35 BST (UK) »
I am trying to discover more about the goldsmith & silversmith J Hollins at 1 Wolverhampton St Dudley. My gr gr grandmother's sister was married to Thomas Hollins b 1820 and their family are in Dudley as pawnbrokers and jewellers in 1871/81. They are living at 184 -5 Wolverhampton St which now appeares to be a private house, perhaps they lived separate from the shop. Thomas died in 1883 and their son John appears to have taken over the business at least until 1911. What I want to know is which member of the family founded the shop and ran it until 1871. None of my Thomas's family were in Dudley earlier than that, they were in Wolverhampton where Thomas was also a pawnbroker. Thomas's family originally came from Colwich in Staffordshire so I can't work out how they came to take over a family business in Dudley.

Can someone do an address search on no 1 in the earlier censuses and also look for any possible Hollins in the area. I haven't yet found anything.

Hi,

Have checked 1 Wolverhampton Street on the 1861 and 1851. Unfortunately there are no numbers recorded for the houses  ???
