What did it say in the marr.about father Thomas Wilkinson,was he still living ,and was his employment mentioned.
There are quite a few Thomas Wilkinsons being born in Shropshire with father Thomas.

that name could tie in with the 1891 Stanway census .

Hi,

William Porter had a sister named Nancy born 1846. Jumping forward to the 1871 census. There is a Thomas Wilkinson occupation coal miner, born about 1844 Sedgley with wife Nancy born 1847 Sedgley. Children Mary Ann age 3 and Matilda age 1.

Event place Coseley, Sedgley, Staffordshire

This could be a red herring. Also bear in mind that the name Ann could be used instead of Nancy.

I wasn't expecting all this many thanks had a little search about jos Wilkinson found him on the 1851 census but spelt wilkenson

Name

Age


Jos Wilkenson 35
Matilda Wilkenson 32
Jabez Wilkenson 10
Thomas Wilkenson 8
Isaac Wilkenson 1
Sarah Wilkenson 12
Ellen Wilkenson

then on the 1861 but without jos and right spelling
Matilda Wilkinson 42
Jabes Wilkinson 20
Thomas Wilkinson 18
Ellen Wilkinson 14
Matilda Wilkinson

I also had a look at the 1871 you said it all ties in doesn't it so do you think the next step is to order Thomas jr birth cert to see if Nancy is his mother or what would you suggest many thanks again

Hi,

I would think that the birth certicate would have Nancy/Ann as mother. Also the marriage certicate for Ann Porter and Thomas Wilkinson. This will confirm their fathers names. Would it be possible if,you could post a copy of the witnesses signature on Thomas Wilkinsons marriage certificate (John Lockley and ......) could be that they are relatives though I couldnt find a connection. Just post the signatures as a whole copy of the certificate breaks copyright rules.
