Ok re the other Amelia Portman
not quite got my head around this but think...that she is an Amelia Bayliss POrtman ...or some such one

Father Thomas seems to be born out of wedlock.
mother is a Mary Ann Bayliss

Jimmy this lot connects to you!

so John portman unmarried in 1861
1861 Census New Road Halesowen Stourbridge Worcs.
John Portman Head 50 (U) Carpenter Bewdley Worcs.

1841 Census Spring Hill Hasbury Halesowen Stourbridge Worcs.
John Portman 35 Carpenter not born in County
Mary Portman 35
Eliza Portman 12
Mary Portman 9
Thomas Portman 6
Sarah Portman 4
Emma Portman 1
Rest born in County

1851 Census Birmingham Street Halesowen Stourbridge Worcs.
John Portman Head 42 Carpenter Rock Parish Worcs.
Ann Portman wife 43
Sarah Portman dau 16 Nailor
Emma Portman dau 11
John Portman son 7
Martha Portman dau 2
Rest born Halesowen Worcs.

Note:- Although John Portman is shown as unmarried in 1861 and Bachelor on Marriage record in 1862 He must have lived with Mary Ann Bayliss unmarried as no record of marriage. However his son Thomas Portman lived as grandson of Mary Ann Bayliss parents Thomas and Phoebe Bayliss in 1851

That works for me ....Amelia Portman that marries John Cooksey father James
and

Amelia Portman/..or Bayliss marries Joseph Guest father Thomas POrtman/Bayliss

It would be very interesting to see that birth certif for either Eliza Portman or Albert portman..no mother on which makes me
wonder if she puts Portman or Baylis on that....

Thank you. I had far more pieces of evidence that supported Amelia's parents being Thomas & Sarah Portman than those supporting James & Mary Ann Portman and on top of that the different dates of birth for Amelia were confusing me. However, at that time, I was unaware of the birth certificate information on BCC. So, now I am reassessing what I have.

Now that is only what I think..you make your own mind up.
But I do feel that it checks out

Now if Jo agrees would you like me to add your username to that Amelia that marries John Cooksey on Bcc ?
