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.
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?
