Re: Barlows in Aston, Birmingham, Warks, ENG
Hi again Terry
From what you've said, I don't think are Barlows connect.All my Barlows seem to stay in or around Aston at least one generation back and for two generations in the future.Although your William worked with metal, I think you'll find nearly everyone in Aston was connected with iron or steel in some way in the 19th century!
You've obviously searched the 1881 census for this info.You might like to follow it up with the 1891 census for Aston over half of which is available freely online at
You can search for surname of a fashion.Load up the transcription and use the Find option in you browser to search for the surname 'Barlow'
