Powell family Staffordshire
« on: Sunday 27 November 22 06:58 GMT (UK) »
Hi
I’m searching for Hannah Powell Gt Grandmother B: 1857 D:1914 M:1875 Spouse (Henry Jacques Leicester)
Father listed on Marriage certificate as Thomas Powell framework knitter
I have her on census’s from 1881 listed as Annie/Anna/Ann !
On all census it states her birth place to be Cheadle Staffordshire . I cannot find any birth details , mothers details  to connect her to Thomas powell /Staffordshire .
Her children were Ernest , Arthur, Albert , Alma, Amey, Edith, Elsie, Nellie . There were 12 children but 4 died I have no information for them . Could someone point me in the right direction please !!!
Thank you

Hi, it would appear that husband Henry is a widow by 1921 census. Possible death of Annie

mq 1914
Jacques    Annie    56    Leicester    7a   390.

Info only, general observation, on the 1881 census in the household of Henry Jacques are an Elizabeth White aged 65-Mother, and Thomas White father in Law aged 71, wonder who's parents they are.

This is an off the wall suggestion, but I wonder if the surname was misheard?

FOWELL, HANNAH       - 
GRO Reference: 1857  M Quarter in CHEADLE  Volume 06B  Page 245

This is an illegitimate birth and I found a baptism for her on 5th April 1857, mother Caroline described as a single woman.

Off the wall can ideas can sometimes work out Girl Guide. Caroline in 1861, no Hannah though.

Piece:   1953
Folio:   117
Page number:   22
Household Members (Name)   Age   Relationship
James Fowell 53   Head
Caroline Fowell   19   Daughter
David Fowell 16   Son
Emma Fowell 13   Daughter
George Fowell 7   Son

Caroline went on to marry Josiah Taylor in 1870 Manchester. 1871 census for Josiah & Caroline does not record a Hannah.
