Hi Carol - on the marriage cert James is down as a Foreman, as was his father John.
Martha i believe went on to marry a Mr Ahhplant. James Milson married a Fanny Weller and ended up in Wales, however i can't find him in 1891 either!

It's after 1881 that i struggleto trace either James or Emma.

Many thanks,

Is this a mistake? Jamesí father is David, isnít he?

Hi Heywood

The 1874 marriage between James & Emma is on FS and does indeed show his father as David.  It was Emmaís father who was John.  Well spotted :)

Have you got son James in 1891?

This looks like him transcribed as Thomas M N Jones on one site but reads as James M H

1891 4474/124/38
2 Washington Street Llangyfelach, Glamorgan

He is 12 yrs old b Tipton and nephew in the household of Edward and Eliza Jones. He is a Shop Assistant.

Hi Heywood, no i hadn't spotted that - There was an uncle Edward in the right age range, although he previously claimed to be born in Breaden heath - not Tipton as the one above states, but again, I guess you can take birthplaces with a pinch of salt - particularly when he was still fairly young.

I think Edwardís birthplace varies. :)


I havenít looked back today but when you were posting re Henry Fellows, I meant to post that Mrs Fellows was a Barker before marriage.

I don't blame him - not sure i'd admit to being born in Tipton either! ( i can say that, i'm only down the road!)

Hmmm, are talking the 'real' Henry Fellows? ie the one married to mary jane on the page before? There is a Mary Jane Barker who marries a Henry fellows in the right time frame, over in Stourbridge - bit of a treck from Tipton, but Henry states he's from Birmingham which isn't a million miles away, and Emma barker (Jones) did have a sister called Mary ann... hmm.... :)
