    Default George Sheffield born Kidderminster 1849

    I am new here and still trying to find my feet . Am trying to trace my mothers family details from England . My great grandfather , George Sheffield was born at Kidderminster on the 10th of February 1849 . His parents were John and Jane ( maiden name Stokes ) and they emigrated to South Africa in 1860 . I understand he was one of four children . Two boys and two girls

    I can find the following children born in Kidderminster with mother's maiden name Stokes

    Louise Sarah Dec 1844 Kidderminster vol 18 p359 - died 1845
    Harriet Mar 1846 Kidderminster vol 18 p389
    George Mar 1849 Kidderminster vol 18 p429
    Emma Mar 1852 Kidderminster vol 6c p232

    I can also find baptisms for the following children of John and Jane
    Mary Jane 11 August 1843
    Louise Sarah 15 September 1844
    Harriet 15 March 1846
    George 4 March 1849
    Emma 24 February 1852

    The 1851 Census has John and Jane in Kidderminster with Mary Jane, Harriet, Thomas and George. I cannot find Emma at all, nor can I see a death for her.

    John Sheffield married Jane Stokes Dec 1842 Kidderminster vol 18 p468

    Hi Steve and welcome to the British-Genealogy forums.
    As your post is needing, and already receiving information (thanks emeltee) about an ancestor I have moved it from the "Introduce Yourself' forum to the Worcestershire forum and given it the new title George Sheffield born Kidderminster 1849.
    If you would like a new title or other changes you just have to ask.
