I have now found a baptism for a Thomas but it is in the 1850s so I now think that I do have the wrong Thomas. This is incredibly frustrating, back to the drawing board it is !

Good find, Jo!

Likely baptism Pelsall 2 Oct 1803 Harratt daughter of Thomas & Hannah Poxson
same day as William son of Joseph & Ann Russell who could be related to John?

Marriage Walsall 13 Feb 1802 Thomas Poxon & Hannah Jobber

Burial Stonnall in Shenstone 15 Dec 1844 Hannah Poxton 62 Ogley, late of Catshill


I have discovered that Joseph Russell was a witness at the Wedding of Thomas and Hannah. I am now trying to work out their connection. I do now think that I have the right people. I cant find any other nailor in Shelfield with the name John, I still cant find a birth for Thomas but it makes sense that if Harriet married John and her maiden name was Poxon then its likely their son that is staying with Grandparents.
