Hello Susan, firstly I hope your son is OK and fingers crossed, you get a good result. Secondly thanks for the Crutchley story, its so nice to have more than a name and date, it brings people to life. Right, I found a few details of Thomas,buried 15th May 1838, He lived in Crooked Lane and was 46 years old, no other info. It seems unlikely that he is connected to your family, although he could be a cousin. As for the baptism of Joseph in 1847, the only extra info is, the address is Ashted Row and Fathers Occ. is Coach Proprietor. I'll keep digging in case I spot something else. Lynne.
Lynn, Where did you obtain the parish register copy for your Henry Holder's marriage at St.Peter's and St.Paul's Church? George Crutchley married Eliza Capas in the same church on 25 Dec 1852. Would love to tie up my research that Eliza Capas was indeed the daughter of Thomas Capas and Sarah ? and was born in Emscot in Warwickshire. Regards, Susan
Lynn, I just found that marriage also. I have saved it for researching later. Maybe you can help me on this ...... I have found my Thomas CAPAS family in the 1841 census. They are on Sander street and the census is for the following: Civil parish=St Nicholas; Hundred=Warwick; County/Island=Warwickshire. Does this mean the city of Warwick outside of Birmingham? I have found 2 Warwick's one is pretty much inside Birmingham, the other is northeast of Birmingham. Which one would this be? Or does the time frame of 1841 have a Warwick that I still need to find? Thanks Guys!! Regards, Susan
Susan, I saw the 1841 Census, I would say its the Town of Warwick in Warwickshire. This one is South of Birmingham, If you can find Leamington Spa on a modern map, Warwick is very close. This must be very confusing for you, but keep asking your questions and we will all do our best to help. Lynne.
Susan, I dont know whether you have this but found Thomas Capas on the 1891 Census living with his daughter Ellen Bayliss and family in Aston, Birmingham, aged 81. I cant find him on the 1881 or 1901 or on the death records. Lynne.
