Hodnett/ Showell of Birmingham/ Warwickshire...


New member
I have marriage license for 1849 at St. Phillips Church. William Hodnett ( born 1813) when married to Ann Maria Showell (born 1827] was listed as a widower and occupation of tailor. They may both have had fathers with the first name of William, one a tailor like his son and Ann’s father, an engineer.

They gave birth to a son Thomas Hodnett who somehow went to the United States-at ten years old without the parents. Thomas was born around 1850 in England. In the US, he married Rosilla Lits/ Litts. Any information on living descendants in England would be nice to have for my husband.
