We’re taking the kids off to a theme park in Staffordshire. I am hoping we’ll get up there in time tomorrow to visit the Black Country Living Museum, but it depends on how organised we are in the morning (ie. what time we leave!)
Today I’ve been trying to follow up a Staffordshire ancestor. Unfortunately, all I know is that he was born around 1831 in Staffordshire. Nothing else. I’ve been checking census records, determining which George Tunn[e|i]cliff[e] was born around the right time, and then disappeared off the face of the earth, according to the England census records, and emigrated to New Zealand in 1857.
I have one likely suspect, born in Checkley, Staffordshire. I wonder if I can wangle a little detour there?
