Welcome to our forum ~ please post your questions below.
I wondered if someone could possibly find this family for me please in 1871. I've found them before and afterwards!
1861 Dudley Road Tipton Staffs
Mary Ann Brazier 47 fruiterer & shopkeeper
John " 21 coalminer
Thomas " 18 "
Letitia " 15 Servant
Richard " 13 coalminer
Mary Ann " 9
James " 5
Sarah " 3
Husband James b 1811 Clifton on Teme Worcestershire missing
1881 Gladder Brook, Rock, Worcestershire
James Brazier 68 General labourer
Mary Ann " 67
When son John b 1838 marries in 1866 in Rawmarsh he gives father's occupation as greengrocer.
Jenny, It looks like they are missing from the census, at least from the transcription. Suggest as a last resort you browse through the census for the area to see if they are there and for some reason have been missed by the transcribers.
This is the best I could find, but the age of Mary seems wrong.
1871 census - Birchy Field Lane, Oldbury, West Bromwich, Staffs.
James Brazier, 53yrs, Labourer (colliery),(birth column empty).
Mary Brazier, 48yrs, born Tipton, Staffs.
Sarah Brazier, 13yrs, born Tipton, Staffs.
Looks like the 13 year old girl was the only one at home. She did not know where her father was born and she guessed her parents ages.
Hi Moira and Dave
thanks for your replies. It does look like the correct family and it might be as Dave suggested that Sarah gave the information to the best of her knowledge.
