I thought i would start a new thread for general information that anyone may have on a particular family as below:

John MINSHALL, b: Abt 1811 in Prees, Agricultural Labourer

Mary WEAVER, b: ABt 1807 in Prees, married 10 Aug 1829

Children: Jane MINSHALL(-WEAVER?) b. 1827; William MINSHALL (1831-1894); John MINSHALL b. 1840; Mary MINSHALL b. 1845

The family appear on the 1841/1851 census records for Prees and then disappear.  There are potential records that I can follow but I have no evidence of these:

  • Jane may have used the name MINSHALL-WEAVER and may have married a James DULSON.
  • Various records that may be suitable appear again from 1881 but the missing 30 years causes uncertainty

I am thankful for any information you may have or guidance on finding out, Mike
