My GGGGF Samuel Ravenscroft married Jane Pearson 30/10/1826 at St Peter or Collegiate W'ton Staffs.According to the 1841 Census he was born in Rowley Regis.Is there anyway of tracing hin further back.?The marriage details are on the IGI and don't show a father

There is a baptism entry on the IGI for Samuel Ravenscroft baptised 05/03/1797 in Ashley, Staffs.
His sister baptised 19/05/1793
Parents John Ravenscroft and Bettey
I couldn't find Samuel on the 1841 census. Does it state he was born in Rowley Regis, or resident?

The IGI is an index, not a full transcription. You need to examine the actual parish register for any additional information. It is necessary to do this both to check the accuracy of the IGI data and because you need every clue you can get.

I've just checked the 1851 Census and it said Rowley Regis on that one:)
