Well, I have Samuel Sutton's wife & children sorted out but have no idea who his parents were. Info I have found says he was born in Priestfield in 1866 but not being familiar with Staffordshire place names I can't find him before the 1901 census. Suggestions as to where to look?

Priestfield is in Wolverhampton. There is a midland metro tramstop on the Birmingham to Wolverhampton line. The wellenhall you mentioned was probably Willenhall. If you google genuki and you choose englan, parishes and select Staffordshire and then check for them on there gives you background.

Thank you; I'll try that too. I have looked at maps but just can't zero in on which Samuel Sutton is the right one, especially since I can't find a record of his marriage either! His birth year varies too - somewhere between 1865-1870. Needless to say finding his death record is almost impossible.
