red mail Daniel Giles
My G grandfather was Daniel Giles b 18 Aug 1851. Previous entry for him (by unknown person) needs correcting. Daniel married Ruth Haines, b 22 Nov 1851, married 26 Dec 1876. I have a lot of information about the two families. There is no reference in my data about any Steele family.

Dodwell Family Crows Mill Bromsgrove.
I am trying to find out any about the DODWELL family, who were millers at Crows Mill from approximately 1886 until at least 1946, when George Ephraim DODWELL died. My husband remembers visiting Crows Mill in the 1940s to see his Great Aunt Ellen, nee BROADBENT who was the wife of George Ephraim. Any information about the family or any photographs of the mill (which I believe was a water mill) would be greatly appreciated.

The Noke(s) family Worcester
I am looking for help with researching the Noke family in Worcester, having arrived at a brick wall with Edward Nokes. The marriage certificate for 4th October 1866 states that after Banns Edward Nokes age 20 years, a bachelor and Sawyer by profession living in the parish of St Clements marries Elizabeth William Ball age 22 years, a spinster living in the parish of St Clements at the parish church of St Clements, Worcester. Their first child, Edward, is born in the fourth quarter of 1866; making it a close call. Edward & Elizabeth have 3 further children, the last one Charles being born in the Union Workhouse, Tallow Hill, Worcester in 1876. Edward is absent from the 1871 census, and by 1881 Elizabeth is described as the household head. Equally I have been unsuccessful to locate a burial or death certificate for Edward or evidence for criminal activity. Elizabeths parents William & Sarah Ball continue to support Elizabeth and her four children, even after Elizabeths untimely death at age 41 years - confirmed by her death certificate. In other words, Edward is the absent father and equally may like Elizabeth die at an early age - presumably around 1876 when his fourth child Charles is born in the workhouse. The 1861 census shows the Ball family living in one of the courts in The Pinch, Hylton Road, Worcester - this was one of the most poorest, overcrowded and unsanitary dwelling places in Worcester. Edward Nokess father is also called Edward and his stated profession is Buttonmaker, which brings my investigations to Bromsgrove, where buttonmaking is a recognised occupation and not so in Worcester. I have identified a Nokes family in Bromsgrove, and head of the household is Edward Nokes a buttonmaker and Methodist Lay Preacher and a son named Edward age 13 years in the 1861 census. So have I identified the correct Edward Nokes and can anyone bring further information to the story? Thank you, in anticipation

red mail William Newby
I am looking for information on my great uncle Teddy. (William Newby) he was born in Upton upon Severn and settled in Bromsgrove. I don't believe he ever married. He was born in 1897 and died in 1986(I think) I would love to know where he lived and what type of work he did. I remember him very fondly but I know very little about him except he was one of my grandfather's brothers and my father kept in touch with him and visited him when possible.

Rea at Catshill Bromsgrove
Looking for details on my Gtx2 Grandfather David Rea who lived at Catshill Bromsgrove. His daughter Hannah's marriage cert dated 22Apr1893 quotes David as deceased, profession - plate layer. There is an entry on the 1881 census records with names that seem to tie in and suggest he was then a nailor. My David had 5 children Hannah (above) Henry (married Ellen Cooke), Walter (married Alice), George (married Annie) and 'Polly' (married J. Thomson). We believe 'Polly' was possibly Mary.

red mail Webley family
I am researching my great great grandmother's family. She was Rhoda Panton (nee Webley) born Devizes, 1830. Her parents were Romeo and Frances Webley (nee Winterson). Romeo and Frances were married in the Particular Baptist Church, Devizes in 1829. Romeo was born abt 1805 in Bromsgrove and was a baker. He died in 1836 but I have no idea what the cause of death was. His wife Francis died in 1844. Romeo's parents were William Webley and Joanna Silcock. Any information welcomed.
