Thomas, Frederick & Samuel mid 1800s Birmingham, Warwickshire, England
Brian Turner
- Close
Thomas & wife Charlotte with sons Frederick & Samuel are in 1841 England Census in Birmingham, Warwickshire.  Charlotte seems to disappear after that; Thomas probably reappeared in 1881 in London, lodging with non-family but still recorded as being married; Frederick & his family emigrated to New Zealand in 1870 and I am interested in making contact with descendants of Samuel for the purpose of comparing notes on hopefully common ancestry.  Frederick is my great-grandfather.

Just come across this site & see your message.

What birth years are they & Charlottes maiden name etc?

I have these names in my database but with more children.

Were they bootmakers or similar occupation in Warwickshire?

Hello Barbara,  boy do I hope something comes from this contact with you!!

 I have an unproven date & place of 9 November 1835 at St George, Birmingham, Warwickshire, England for the marriage of Thomas TURNER & Charlotte TAYLOR from information in IGI data submitted by a Church member.

I have Thomas's birth date as before 3 April 1817, because of his age in the 1841 Census, although a contact (Keith COURTNEY) has him born about 1810.

I have Charlotte's birth date as before 12 March 1817, because of her baptism on 12 March 1817 at St Mary, Warwick.  Other contacts (Keith COURTNEY & Shona TOFTS-LIYANAGE) have her also born about 1810 and the 1841 Census says she was born in Birmingham.

I have Thomas (the younger) as a glass-cutter, but your question about a bootmaker is of interest because his grandson (my grandfather here in New Zealand) was a bootmaker.  I have Thomas (the senior) as an agricultural labourer.

 I have Thomas's parentage as Thomas TURNER & Sarah WATTS and Charlotte's as George TAYLOR & Elizabeth WILKINSON.

Given the possibility of errors in the above, does it look like a match with your information in any way?
