Through my mother's side, I am descended from a Richard Greening born c.1814.
The line goes back thus Geoffrey Knight Greening b Birmingham 1902 d Norfolk 1989 Herbert Joseph Greening b Warwickshire 1867 d Warks. 1946 William Henry Greening b Birmingham 1840 d Aberystwyth 1889 Richard Greening b 1814 d Warwickshire 1903
...and there it stops. The problem comes with Richard's birth details. In 1841, in Birmingham, he is just marked as "Not from county", in 1851 as Dudley, Worcestershire, and in 1861 onwards as Leonard Stanley, Gloucestershire.
I spent Saturday checking the Leonard Stanley P.R. and can fins nothing of him, not any other Greenings in around that period. No non-conformist registers to find from there from that period, so that's one possibility.
Has anyone else been following this line of Greenings, or does anyone have any suggestions?
