Joseph and Sophia Shaw


Active member
A 1841 Census request look up please.

I'm looking for Joseph Shaw a candlestick maker possibly living in Birmingham in 1841 with his wife Sophia (or a Maria?). There was one child William Shaw b. 1823 and possibly another named Joseph.

That's as much as I know about Joseph Shaw (b. 1794 ish) and I'm guessing his birth year.

Any help gratefully received.

Thank you.
Thank you for replying. I can't be sure this is my Joseph or his family in 1841 in fact it looks doubtful. Wife named Mary not Maria or Sophia? I realise he could have remarried but the children's names are not comparable to those I have found including their birth year. I'm unable to see his occupation from the Family Search record. I'll keep looking. Thank you again, I appreciate your response.
