I am currently researching the CORFIELD surname.I have found the family on the 1981 Census in Tipton.I have not been able to find any links for this family prior to this census in Sandwell even though places of birth would suggest they were in the area in 1871 unless this is a mistake on the census. I have even checked Dudley and Walsall.I have found a few family members in 1891 in Tipton but most have disappeared, which would suggest they came from or moved outside the area.Names and information I have so far are as follows:-
Job Corfieldborn 1840 Walsall died 1886 Lousia (wife) born 1844/45died 1895 Children Samuel born 1862/63 Tipton Benjaminb 1864Tipton Williamb 1868Tipton Thomasb 1871Tipton Josephb 1872/73 Tipton Sarahb 1878Tipton Elizabeth b 1880Tipton Jobb 1882Tipton
I'm hoping to find out the name of Job Snrs. father shortly as I've sent for the marrage certificate.This may hold some clues!
Most were coal miners and I suppose it is possible they moved area to find work. If anyone finds any link to any of these please can you E-mail me.
