I have a Richard Firth who was a tailor by occupation. He married a Jane Smith of Clifton in the Parish of Conisbrough Yorkshire on 9th December 1806.
Jane had an illegimate daughter named Mary Smith born 18th & chr 24th of December 1803 in Conisbrough. Can't establish whether Mary is Richard's daughter, but that's not important!
& Elizabeth Firth born 13th & chr 17th September 1807 in Conisbrough.
& Jane Firth born 26th November & chr 2nd December 1809 in Conisbrough.
Jane married in 1841 to a Benjamin Moss a glasscutter in Rotherham. He died 1847 Sheffield. She then married a Joseph Smith in 1854 in Sheffield. Both marriage extracts state the father Richard Firth as a tailor.
So he must have been alive on the 1841 & 1851 on the basis that the marriage extract doesn't say otherwise.
Don't know whether that's always the case though, someone else may know.
Does anyone else have Firths, particularly tailors, weavers & drapers etc or familiar with the above?
