View Full Version : ROUND family from Rowley Regis
26-09-2009, 9:25 PM
I am looking for relatives named ROUND in Rowley Regis. I have traced back to Benjamin ROUND born in Rowley Regis, Staffs in approx 1832 according to census 1871 and more recent, where he is listed as married to Ann, with a string of children - births beginning 1855. However, I have not managed to trace Benjamin pre 1871, nor a marriage record for Benjamin and Ann. Can anyone help me get a bit further, please?

There are quite a number of Benjamin Rounds marrying in the area, a quick look found a couple of Anns in the Dudley area, I think you may need to narrow it down a bit,
Given the dates of the childrens births, from 1855, I would be looking at this entry.
Marriages Sep 1853
BAKER Ann Dudley 6c 65
EVANS William Dudley 6c 65
ROUND Benjamin Dudley 6c 65
WINWOOD Susanna Dudley 6c 65

Is this the family you're after?
