Births Dec 1860
PARKES Moses - West Bromwich 6b 624 mmn NICHOLS
James Nicholls died in Dec Qtr 1881 in RD West Bromwich but I can only find the one in post #5 and maiden name for Mary does not seem to be Nichols/Nicholls.
Re post #5

Job Hancox married Mary Nicholls 22 January 1866 in Lower Gornall. Her father's name given as James Nicholls. Marriage on FreeReg
GRO Reference: 1869 D Quarter in PRESTON Volume 08E Page 570

I can't find a Anson/Hanson & Hayes marriage.
From the 1866 marriage on FreeREG - Mary is 20 and her father is a Nailer.

GRO Reference: 1845 J Quarter in DUDLEY UNION Volume 18 Page 301
1851 James a Nail Maker

From that census James born Sedgley in 1817.

The 1881 census has James as 70 and Grand Father. Does the original have an occupation for James ?

How can James born 1817 be the son of James born 1811 ?
