Re: Dingley Family Blackheath /Rowley Regis
Thank you for the 1861 census info re my Dingley family.
Now as for where Hill is - do you know where the other areas of B'ham are? 'cos that will help.
It's a bit complicated, as the info I have comes from someone else - as I didn't know where it was either! Christine Brettell (who also posts occasionaly to this forum)told me the following;
Hill is actually part of Hill and Cakemore, part of which is in Halesowen, now in the Metropolitan Borough of Dudley, and a smaller part in Blackheath, once in Rowley Regis but now in the Metropolitan Borough of Sandwell.
BUT if you need to know so that you can find the parish records...then it gets even more complicated, but I have some info regarding the finding of those if you need it.
Hope that clears up your query
