Thanks to everyone for their warm welcome, and all this information is GREAT! Many thanks to everyone who sent info & links on "Billy Sugar". I had some of the information from the censuses and from parish records but had nothing to confirm that that William Steventon was THE William Steventon hanged. Sorry to sound a bit thick - but how do you know that these 2 men are one and the same, particulalry as there were supposedly a lot of Steventons in Tipton, Oldbury, Rowley, etc at the time? Newspaper articles very helpful also,
cheers, Helen

if you look at bcc

http://bcconnections.tribalpages.com/fa ... ham-Family

william left 6 kds according to article ?

we have 5 on bcc last one hannah c 1828 with william first one with john c 1830 so this leaves very small window for his death late 1827 to late 1829 how many other william steventon from oldbury die in that time ?

6th kid being john bap

name: John Steventon
gender: Male
baptism/christening date: 22 Sep 1822
baptism/christening place: Oldbury,Worcester



william jrn states his father deceased in 1839 and was a miner


article state he was a soldier would there be any military records about ?

I looked and could find no matching military record.

There are an awful lot of Steventon in Tipton but there are too many parallels for this to be anybody but the one hanged.

Thirty Guineas Reward.
Whereas William Steventon, alias commonly called Billy Sugar, stands charged upon the Coroner's Inquest with the WILFUL MURDER OF JOHN HORTON, at Oldbury, in the parish of HalesOwen, in the county Salop, on Monday night the 31st of March last. He is a native of Oldbury, and is by trade a Collier, but has occasionally worked as a Brick-maker and Boat-man, about thirty years of age, five feet ten inches high, rather splay footed, has a crooked nose, large front teeth, hazel eyes, and long neck.
Whoever will apprehend and deliver him to me, shall forthwith receive the reward.
Samuel Marsh.
Constable of Oldbury

another article
states the above and what's on the other sites but goes on to say..
.. Horton has left a pregnant wife and five children. Stevenson has a wife and six children.
