James Penn abt 1810
« on: Saturday 06 February 21 17:48 GMT (UK) »
Hi All

Am looking for help to identify the parentage of James Penn.  He married Jane Greenfield, who had previously been married to a John Hadley in 1831.  I think John died around 1833, but am still trying to find his parentage. 

James Penn was born in 1810 in Worcestershire. He married Jane Greenfield on 29 December 1833 in Kingswinford, Staffordshire. They had four children during their marriage.  Interestingly, some of the Penn children changed their surname to Hadley.  James died March 1841 at the age of 31.  Jane went on to marry a Joseph Beard

Children of Jane and James are Henry Penn 1837 - later changed his surname to Hadley, Elizabeth Penn 1838, William Penn - changed his surname to Hadley abt 1838 and Patience Penn - changed her name to Hadley 1840.

James Penn was a blacksmith.

Thanks

Good point!  I dont.  Ive just checked my tree and it seems someone else had put on their tree they believed he was from worcestershire.  So he could be from there or anywhere.
