Still looking for 1841, this may be them in 1851..
1851 England Census:
Name: Thomas Currall
Age: 56
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1795
Spouse's Name: Martha Currall
Gender: M (Male)
Where born: Warwickshire, England
Civil parish: Warwick St Mary
County/Island: Warwickshire
Country: England
Registration district: Warwick
Sub-registration district: Kenilworth
ED, institution, or vessel: 1c
Household schedule number: 93
Piece: 2073
Folio: 242
Page Number: 22
Occ: Tailor (from original image)
Name Age
Martha Currall 50, wife, b. Warwickshire abt. 1801
Joseph Currall 16
William Currall 13
Jane Currall 12

One tree suggests her maiden name is Dunkley, just trying to follow that up.

Thanks Geoff.

Yes, I've just arrived there. :) Grandmother is Elizabeth MANTON. Mother of Thomas.

Looks like Thomas died 1868 and this tree has no death for Martha.


Not so sure about that death - age is out:

Deaths Mar 1868
Currall Thomas 67 Meriden 6d 247

Thanks Geoff.

The image looks like Mavis and not like Manton, but that one is more likely I think.

The other deaths in Warwickshire don't fit. The tree has his birth as 1794 so age at death for the one who died in 1868 does not fit.


It's curious how FS can have some 1841 and 1851 census transcriptions that look to have the correct surname when they can't be found on other sites.

Thanks. 1864 is more likely for Thomas.

Looking at the list of siblings there is a Jane but no William and a Josiah/Jonah which could be Joseph.

The tree I'm viewing only has one child listed, a son Joseph b. 1832.

I wonder:

Elizth. Manton
England, Marriages, 1538–1973
marriage 27 Jul 1788 St Nicholas, Stafford, England
spouse Samuel Corell

I can't find a baptism for Martha. I'd say the author of the tree has b. 1801 from age in 1851 census.

Not finding much to fill in gaps.
