Census details

Research Notes

  • Research note 01: In 1856 Harriett was a beneficiary in the will of her father. Also in 1856 Harriet had all her children (except the first who was christened soon after birth) christened in St Margaret's Topcroft. In 1851 Joseph and Harriet were the parents of 5 children aged between 11 and 2, Harriet and Joseph and the 2 youngest children were listed as lodgers with George and Hannah ANDREWS who were the publicans in Topcroft, the eldest 2 daughters were with their maternal grandparents and Elizabeth who was 7 was with William CUNNINGHAM, an uncle. The death of Joseph has not been located in any English index, but Harriet was listed as a widow in 1861. I am sure more work will reveal more about this family. Elizabeth born in 1844 and Laura Anna Maria, who was working for an Independent Minister in Birmingham in 1861 and who may have used the name of Mary Ann instead of Laura Anna Maria, disappear from the records, Harriet was with only the youngest 2 children in th 1871 census, and she died before 1881..
