  • Notes 
    • From the 1841 England Census for Duddeston and Nechells, Aston, Warwickshire (HO107 Piece 1149 Book 6 Folio 19 Page 2) James, 12, was with his parents Joseph, 35, Butcher, and Sarah, 40, in Gosta Green, Aston, Warwickshire, England. With him were his siblings Eliza, 14, Sarah, 10, May (sic), 3, and Joseph, 6 months. Also present was William Turnpenny, 60, ? from Ireland. The members of the family born in Warwickshire were Sarah senior, Eliza, James, and Joseph junior.

      Note: Sarah was a widow when she married Joseph and so I think William Turnpenny was her ex-husband's father.

      From the 1851 England Census for Deritend, Aston, Warwickshire (HO107 Piece 2060 Folio 46 Page 20) James, 22, Journeyman Painter, was with his wife Elizabeth, 19, Warehouse Woman, at Court 7 No 9 Little Barr Street, Aston, Warwickshire, England. With him was his mother-in-law Elizabeth Smith, widow, 62, Domestic Duties, and niece Jane Hands, 4, Scholar. Everyone was recorded as having been born in Birmingham, Warwickshire.

      From the 1861 England Census for Deritend, Aston, Warwickshire (RG9 Piece 2174 Folio 51 Page 35) James, 32, Painter and Glazier was with his wife Elizabeth, 29, at Court, Aston, Warwickshire, England. With them were their sons Henry, 7, and Edwin, 5. Lodging with the family were Jane E. Salisbury, 22, and Susan Salisbury, 21, Boot and Shoe Binders. Everyone was recorded as having been born in Birmingham, Warwickshire.

      From the 1871 England Census for Deritend, Aston, Warwickshire (RG10 Piece 3141 Folio 142 Page 21) James, widower, 42, Painter and Glazier, and his sons Henry, 17, Painter and Glazier, and Edwin, 15, Brush Maker, were at 7 Little Barr Street, Aston, Warwickshire, England. All were recorded as having been born in Birmingham, Warwickshire.

      From the 1881 England Census for Deritend, Aston, Warwickshire (RG11 Piece 3022 Folio 62 Page 19) James, 51, House Painter, was at 2 Court 7 House, Little Bar Street, Aston, Warwickshire, England. With him were his children Florence, 6, Scholar, Ernest, 4, Scholar, Walter, 2, and step-daughter Nelly Hawtin, 8, Scholar. Everyone was recorded as having been born in Birmingham, Warwickshire.

      From the 1891 England Census for Deritend, Aston, Warwickshire (RG12 Piece 2412 Folio 102 Page 14) James, 62, Painter and Paper Hanger from Birmingham, Warwickshire, was with his wife Emma, 46, from Leamington, Warwickshire, at 7 Court 2, Little Barr Street, Aston, Warwickshire, England. With them were their children Polerina (sic), 16, Enamel Worker, Ernest, 14, Rule Maker, Walter, 12, Scholar, Selina, 10, Scholar, and Laura C., 7, Scholar. All the children were recorded as having been born in Birmingham, Warwickshire.

      From the 1901 England Census for Deritend, Aston, Warwickshire (RG13 Piece 2855 Folio 56 Page 11) James, 72, House Painter, was with his wife Emma, 56, at 7 Court 2, Little Barr Street, Aston, Warwickshire, England. With them were their children Ernest, 24, Engine Driver, and Clara, 17, Press Worker. Everyone was recorded as having been born in Birmingham, Warwickshire.
