WHITEHEAD/ HAYES in Birmingham


New member
I wondered if anyone could help. I'm having trouble tracing my Great Grandad's two sisters, i have their birth certificates.

One sister was born Catherine Whitehead Hayes in 1863 and her sister Adela Hayes was born in 1872, although her name on the Census appears as Adelaide.

I can only find Catherine on one census, 1871 as Kate Hayes and i can only find Adela on two census, 1881 and 1891 as Adelaide Hayes. ALl showing them living in Ruddington, Notts at that time.

I cannot find any trace of them after that. Their parents were William Hayes and Sarah Whitehead, who it appears were never actualy married.

My Grandma remembers two of my Grandads Aunts (which seems it must be Catherine and Adela) moving to Birmingham and working as teachers as she recalls a family member visiting them around the 1930's. But she cant remember anything else, whether they were married, etc .

I'm totally stuck, any help from anyone would be much appreciated!
