Thomas Hawkins 1829


I'm looking for birth information regarding a Thomas Hawkins. He was a labourer around Worcester (Hanley Castle/Malvern/Leigh) from 1861-1881. I believe his father was also called Thomas, and his mother was Sarah Price, but I've lost the source of that data :rolleyes: .

He gives his place of birth as either Hanley Castle in Worcestershire, or (earlier) as Stanton Lacey in Shropshire. In the 1841 census there's someone very like him working as an agricultural labourer in Stanton Lacey. His wife Harriet's place of birth also changes, from Claines to Hanley Castle as time goes on :D

does anyone have access to the relevant parish records so they can check for me, or perhaps point me in the right direction. There are lots of Hawkins in the Lilleshall area around the right time (on the IGI), but I want to rule out Stanton Lacey before I take the easy route to Lilleshall.
