Postby mumbles » Fri Aug 09, 2019 7:10 pm

I have this Henry Ferguson
1891 Census New Street Wednesfield Wolverhampton Staffs.
Henry Ferguson Head 62 Iron Padlock Maker
Emma Ferguson Wife 52 born Pershore Worcs.
John Morris son 22 Fitters Mechanic
Florence Ferguson dau 9 Scholar born Wednesfield Staffs.
Rest born Wolverhampton Staffs.

1901 Census 41 Cobden Lane Wolverhampton Staffs.
Henry Ferguson Head 70 Locksmith born Heath Town Staffs.
Emma Ferguson Wife 64 born Pensnet Worcs. ( Worcs. crossed out and Staffs. inserted)

Freereg marriage St. Thomas Wednesfield Staffs. 29/5/1881
Henry Ferguson 50 (wid) Locksmith father Reuben Ferguson Labourer
Emma Morris 39 father William Morris Miner
Witneses John Adey & Martha Myring

but when I look for a Henry Ferguson Locksmith father Reuben Ferguson I cannot find but can find other Henry Fergusons Locksmith with different fathers and born not at c. 1830/1831 but at 1837
Is possible that Reuben is wrong name for father and it is Joseph ?

I think this Henry is the correct one :-

1851 Census Bushbury Lane Wednesfield Wolverhampton Staffs.
Richard Ferguson Head 25 Journeyman Screw Maker
Elizabeth Derguson wife 28
Henry Ferguson brother 21 Journeyman Screw Maker
All born Wednesfield Staffs.

Henry and Richard appear to have been born out of wedlock as at Baptisms only mother Ann is noted
and no father details for Richard when he married in 1851 and 2nd marriage in 1868

1871. Dudley Street, Poutneys Fold, Wolverhampton.
Henry Fergusson, head 45 Locksmith Wednesfield
Ann, wife 44, Stourbridge
Sarah, daur, under 1 month, Wolverhampton

Sarah was Sarah Jane Ferguson mother Mallin on GRO) and died aged 2 in 1873 Wolverhampton

This Henry is probably wrong one as too young at born 1836
