1871 Census request look-up please.

Could someone please help to locate Samuel Rhodes born abt. 1805 Dudley, Worcestershire and his wife Elizabeth born abt. 1807 in Dudley, Worcestershire? At that time I believe they may have been living in Aston, Birmingham near there eldest son.

Thank you,
Julia

Hello Ladybird and Amanda,

In the 1881 census Samuel is an inmate in the workhouse in Birmingham, I believe this was in Erdington, Birmingham. He is shown as a widower and described as, "stoker at works". His eldest son was Isaiah Rhodes born in 1855 in Dudley and living in Aston, Birmingham with his family. I have the info about him. Isaiah was a Glassblower.

The families you have both hightlighted are not the ones I am looking for although the information you have posted is very similar.

Does this help further?

Julia

There are only two marriages recorded for a Samuel to an Elizabeth, the one above was the most likely.
Could not find him in 1871 only in 1861 and 1881.

n. teaser - The stoker or fireman in glassworks who attends the furnace.

My guess would have been someone who pullled the glass through a die.
