Many thanks for your replies Kloumann.Unfortunately this is the family I mention in my post,so many similarities but not my John Dobbs.
My John Dobbs in the 1891 census for Hucknall is single and with his widowed mother and was born in Hucknall.The "Virginian" Joseph Dobb and Charlotte married in Basford District in 1881 and in the USA records he was born in Derbyshire.
Thank you Larkspur for Joseph's birth record ,it's not on Ancestry or FamilySearch.Will investigate the other siblings you mention.
Green family ,West Hanningfield and Writtle,Essex, 1700-1900,plus other Essex areas and later dates.Collins,Dobbs,Terry,Betts,Hucknall etc,Nottinghamshire.

Who is John Dobbs? You were looking for a Joseph Dobb whose mother was Sophia Spencer. I posted the death cert for Joseph in Richmond Virginia which listed his mother as Sophia Spencer & the 1871 census in Hucknall with his grandparents, states he was born in Derby.

Gracol, I would think that the Joseph that went to USA is your Joseph. His parents are the same, wife Charlotte. He is a bricklayer.The last known place he lived was Walsall and he is here on the 1901 census
Class: RG13; Piece: 2704; Folio: 184; Page: 51
This census says he was born in Derby but it also says Charlotte was born in Hucknall.
Hucknall and Derby are only about 18 miles apart ( There is also an Ault Hucknall in Derby)
He could have been under his mothers roof for only one night of the census.....
Joseph Dobb naturalisation record he states he sailed on the Carminia, arrived 11 Feb 1907. There is also a record for him on the Friesland arriving on the 13th Oct 1907.
Charlotte seems to have followed him on the Coronia on 10 Sep 1908 she has a daughter Florrie aged 8 with her.
Birth Walsall 1900 -Florence Sophia DOBB MMS Wilkinson.
AREA, Nottinghamshire. Lincolnshire. Staffordshire. Leicestershire, Morayshire.
Paternal Line--An(t)(c)liff(e).Faulkner. Mayfield. Cant. Davison. Caunt. Trigg. Rawding. Buttery. Rayworth. Pepper. Otter. Whitworth. Gray. Calder. Laing. Wright. Jackson. Taylor.

Many thanks for the reply Larkspur.
I hope he is "my" Joseph ! So many similarities.
However -the 1891 Hucknall census shows him as single.
Also Kloumann's post showing his death certificate gives his date of birth as 6 Feb 1863.
Would really appreciate your thoughts on this Larkspur.

His birth was registered in Derby, 1st quarter 1863 which fits with 6th Feb. He was baptised much later in the year in Hucknall.

No sign of his wife, Charlotte & children, Gertrude, Joseph Jr, or Annie anywhere on the 1891 census. They may also have been living with his parents but did not want to declare it.
