I have been studying this family for some time now and I have a lot of records that I am willing to share in exchange for further information about this family.
Christian names include:
Albert Alfred Amos Benjamin Burton Charles Colin Cyril Denis Edward Edwin Elijah Enoch Ernest Francis Frank Frederick Geoffrey George Harry Henry Herbert James John Johnson Joseph Josiah Percy Philip Richard Robert Seth Thomas Walter William
Date Range 1696 - 1908
We've traced our ancestors back toJames Stokes, c. 1796-1875, m. to Mary b. 1791. James was born in Ellesmere, Flintshire, Shropshire and worked as a blacksmith. He and Mary had 3 children: John (c. 1821), Thomas (c. 1826) and James (c. 1826). John (m. Elizabeth nee Allport) is our direct line that we have traced successfully.
We are having trouble with John's brothers Thomas (m. Elinor; ch:Mary b.1846) and James (m Eliza b. 1828; ch: Mary Ann, Pamel(i)a, Emily).
John and Elizabeth had 6 sons and 2 daughters.: William, Hannah, Sara, Thomas, James, Henry, George, Richard. Except for Richard, we are having trouble locating the rest of his siblings.
Besides blacksmiths, the listings show gardeners/farmers, and cabinet makers in Birmingham.
Does any of this connect with your line?

James 1795 is my 2x G.GF
I am descended via
John Souney 1821
And John Henry, my father, 1908
We appear to have discrepancy at John Souney
My records show him married to Ann Davies 1846 Wem RD
Their children were Colin 1846, Edwin, Sarah Ann, Alfred and John.
I have the same detail for John’s brothers Thomas and James
Occupations were blacksmiths changing to wheelwrights and my own father was Carpenter and Joiner.
Corresponding in detail via this site is difficult. If you would like to email me on portzed AT btinternet DOT com it might be easier. I use Genes Reunited and Family Tree Maker 2005 as my master.
Thanks for contacting.
Wow! I will be sending an email asap. Pam
Although I will also send another email, just wanted you to know that I understand who John Souny was and where he fits on the tree. Therefore, ignore my first email. It's amazing. It makes sense now. Thank you so much. It will take me some time to figure out how we are related.
