Just checking marriage
Thomas Russell, Jun Qtr 1846, Tamworth, vol 16 page 625 - on same page Frances Howell. Maria Russell born Sep Qtr 1856, Walsall - mother's maiden name Howell - on '61 Census. There's a Hannah Howell, mother**, widow, age 69, born Norton on the '51 Census.

How do you know Thomas' father's name is John? What's the source. Do you have the marriage cert - or is it from a tree you have checked out?

** this should probably be mother in law?

There is an 1825 baptism in Bilston of a Thomas Russell to Robert & Rachael Russell.

Maybe a possibility if you have no documentary evidence of his father being John.

did you find a birth for Thomas??  That all looks interesting, especially as the parents originate from Pelsall. When I looked for this family I couldnt find the parents on a census after 1851, I may look to see if they emigrated to Canada as some of Thomas' children did later on.  It may be that Thomas was left behind as he was married?? All guesswork but possible?  I  will try again and do some digging when I finish work later. many thanks for your help.

Don't forget that Thomas would not have had to give any proof that this information about his father was the truth.  He may not have known his fathers name or occupation
