Benjamin Breakwell 1810
« on: Saturday 09 March 19 23:49 GMT (UK) »
Hi, I've hit a brick wall with my grandads  family tree and would really appreciate any help.

I'm looking for a look up for Benjamin Breakwell born about 1810 in Belbroughton, Worcestershire.

Died 1888 in West Bromwich Staffordshire.

It's possible he married a Mary Ick.

Variations of his surname have been....

Brakewell, brackwell, brockwell and Blackwell.

I was hoping to get further back and find his parents.. Or anything really. I'm just completely stuck.

Marrriage;
4 October 1836   Chaddesley Corbett, Worcester, England
Benjamin BREAKWELL to Mary ICK

I can find only 1 Bellbroughton Bapt;
ESTHER Breakwell 11 Jun 1826 to JAMES/ANN

1841 in Bellbroughton;
James Breakwell   M   50-54   Worcestershire
Ann Breakwell      F   55-59   Worcestershire
Ester Breakwell      F   15-19

1851 James is born c 1792 Mamble

On Familysearch he is christened 20 May 1792 Mamble to BENJAMIN/MARY

So possible Brother?

1871 we have;
Benjamin Brakewell 56
Mary Brakewell   58
William Brakewell 14
Eleaner Willis 52 Widow, Sister. SISTER** born Bockleton
Ellen Willis   14

Aaah Eleanor remarried to Thomas Birkin 1875 and her Father was William ICK, so should be Sister in Law.
(thought I was on to something there for a moment!)

Thank you everyone for this.

I'm trying to get my head around all of the info you've given me.

I'll probably be back with questions 👍🏻😁
