I saw the information in several places eg. Ancestry & Family Search, Geni.com. I know the dates are right because I also have details of his journey to Canada in 1850 with his wife & 5 sons. Joseph was blind & his job in England was a log tapper.

Thank you for that. Yes, that is my Joseph but it is his parents who Iím uncertain about.
There is quite an interesting story about Joseph & Susannah. In 1850 they sailed from Liverpool to Canada & walked over 400Kms to a plot of land given to settlers. It was covered with trees which they cleared & then farmed. When they did the walk, the youngest boy was just 7 & they carried all their belongings with them.

I have an account of their journey to Canada in 1850 which was documented by someone who descends from the family in Canada & all the names match with the 1841 census in Stretton on Fosse, Warwickshire.
