Re: Hemming family (Worcs, Birmingham, Cradley etc
Thanks for all the info.
I already have Elizabeth Hemming and Joseph Barlow's marriage certificate.Elizabeth's father was called Charles Hemming and was a cordwainer.I also had found the 1881 census entry and yes, that is Joseph Barlow jnr.
I haven't found the IGI entry.It's interesting that she is called Eliza on the 1881 census and on the IGI there's also an Eliza Hemming.It does fit, but I don't like leaping to conclusions with just the IGI to go on!
The bit that doesn't fit is that on the 1881 census, she's listed as having been born in London, Middlesex.I think some research on older censuses is called for.I'm going into the Family Records Centre in Islington on Tuesday and that's one of the things I'm going to be following up.
I doesn't look as if our two Hemming families are connected then, at least not at the this point in time.Thanks for all the info.If I find out anything that connects, I'll let you know.
