Hi,

Im Looking for James and Ann's father, William Rowley.

1881 c. Head of House, Hednesford. B1850, Oakengates, salop
1891 c. head of House, Hednesford. B1851, Adderley, salop.

For the father, William Rowley.
I potentially have,
1841 c. wombridge, son. b1824. (father John, mother Mary, Sister Catherine, b 1822)
1844 marriage to Sarah Rhodes. (witness, catherine rowley)

1851 c. Dilloways lane, wolverhamton.
willaim, b 1824
 sarah, b1822,
 mary ann, b1843, (all three baptised wombridge)
 james, b1844,
jammia, b1848  (Jemima)
 (i think sarah and jemimah both die q1 1854 shifnal, possibly visiting Sarahs sister)

A daughter, Harriet, b 1850, wolverhampton. mmn roades/rhodes

second marriage.
Willenhall st Stephen, 1858.
william rowley, widow, son of john.
sarah gough, widow, dr. of Joseph Meakin.

1861 c
new street, willenhall.
William rowley 36 1825    (all born willenhall this census~)
Sarah              25 1836 (liar)
james rowley   17 1844
harriet rowley   9   1852
catherina rowley 1 1860
william gough, 14 1847    step son
nancy gough    12  1849 step dr
thos gough       8 1853 step dr.

1871 c. walsall. mistranscribed as Bowley.

Thanks for reading this far!
I have a bit of an issue with James's birth dates,  poss bap 1844 - 1852 youngest he ever states.
I cannot find Mary Ann/Ann in 1861- presumably around Ettingshall somewhere.
Ann Richards is never Mary Ann Richards!

My James is not the one in Ditton Priors, in 1851/1861-
I do not agree with the other two trees on ancestry that have his mother as Ann Cooper.

Do you think my research looks ok?
Can you find my James before 1871?

Wow, that was a mission just writing it all out. :)
over to you RC community.

I've just realised you already have the 1851, so you have James before 1871.

What exactly are you trying to find out?

Hi.
I'm trying to find out /prove that the 1851 census in Wolverhampton is actually my James.

There are just so many Rowley's. I've looked at this for a while now and I'm still not 100% this is the correct one.

William's father is John Rowley, occupation miner.

Sarah's father is James Rhodes, occupation miner.

Witnesses were Crispin Pritchard and Catherine Rowley.
