Can anyone help with this request please? I'm searching for William Shaw b. abt.1822 father Joseph Shaw. William married Ann West in 1858 in St. Philip's, Birmingham. He gave his occupation as silversmith. Joseph his father was a carriage lamp maker.

I don't know the name of William's mother, it would help me to know that please.

William's wife was Ann West b. abt. 1830 and her father was James West a brass founder. I've taken their birth years from their marriage certificate.

I know they had a son named Albert b. 1879 in Aston, Nr. Birmingham and a daughter Ann b. 1864 also Aston, Nr. Birmingham.

I'd like to know more about the parents and family of both William and Ann before and after their marriage in 1858. I thought the obvious place to begin is with the 1841 Census.

Thank you in advance.
