I have an extensive family history in Westerleigh. I have started a continuation of a family search my Mother and Aunt started, in which they and got back to John Henry Cordy who was born March 26 1863 in Bristol, Married December 19 1883 to Izott Davis. John died on December 18 1940 in Hespeler Ontario Canada. At this point I have had some wonderful help from a lady in Britian and she has helped help trace the family back to the 1851 census. (I live in Canada so it is difficult to get to the census records) The census listed the following - Cordy William 49 Coal Miner Westerleigh Mary 48 Mangotsfield Naomi 19 Westerleigh Matthew 17 Coal Miner Westerleigh Mark 15 Coal Miner Westerleigh (Great Great Grandfather) Mary Ann 12 Scholar Westerleigh Emma 8 Scholar Westerleigh Rachel 5 Scholar Westerleigh Charlotte 60 Mangotsfield (from the 1881 census I believe this is Williams sister) William 32 Cordwainer Mangotsfield D&D Mary 2 Pucklechurch
Any further info that you may be able to help with would be excellent.
