Joseph Shirley. 1860. St Mary's, Wolverhampton, Staffs.

I have this chaps parents as John Shirley & Virginia Brown. (If I'm correct).

But unable to find a birth.

John Shirley. 1820 – Compton, Staffordshire. Died...?
Virginia Brown, c1824 • Chester, Cheshire, Died Apr 1900 • Wolverhampton, Staffordshire.

Marriage.
Virginia Brown
1844
Oct-Nov-Dec
R.D - Great Boughton
.Chesire
Volume 19
Page 87

Family not found in 1851 census.

1861 census is a bit odd, as Virginia is down as Jane Shirley.

Is John Shirley a bargee, bargeman, or anything like that.??

There are a host of baptisms in FamilySearch for the Shirleys, with mothers name as either Virginia or Jane.

I am unable to view the original census, from 1861 to 1911.

I was snatching records from Ancestry, on the freebie weekend, and never really looked at details. Time was running out, so thats my only excuse.

Any ideas folks, and all help is appreciated.


Steve.

Re: Joseph Shirley. 1860. St Mary's, Wolverhampton, Staffs.

Another one of your strange families, Steve.

From what I have found so far John Shirley married Virginia Brown in Gt Boughton, Chester in 1844. According to the variuos Censuses they had the following children
Ann 1846 Gnosall, Staffs
William 1848 Newport, Salop
Henry 1852 Adderley, Salop
Thomas 1855 Wolverhampton
Lucy 1857 Wolverhampton
Joseph 1860 Wolverhampton
Virginia 1862 Wolverhampton
Arthur 1865 Wolverhampton
Virtue 1867 Wolverhampton.

I can't find the family in 1851. In 1861 John is married to Jane in 1871 and 1881 he is with Virginia. Unless in 1861 Virginia was referred to as Ginnie and the enumerator wrote down Jane, I can't think of any other explanation. However it gets worse

The following baptisms are on www.wolverhamptonhistory.org.uk under
St Mary

Henry Shirley bap. 19/7/1852 Parents John & Jane
abode Montrose Street occ Boatman

Lucy Shirley bap 22/7/1857 Parents John & Jane
abode Littles Lane occ Boatman

John Joseph Shirley bap 22/2/1860 parents John & Jane
abode Falkland Street occ Engineer

Virginia Shirley bap 19/11/1862 parents John & Virginia
abode Falkland Street occ Labourer

Arthur Shirley bap 25/10/1865 parents John & Virginia
abode 34 Falkland Street occ Engineer

Virtue Shirley bap 6/11/1867 parents John & Jane
abode 34 Falkland Street occ Engineer

To add to all that, searching the GRO site Ann, William, Henry, Lucy and Arthur have mmn Brown. I can't find Thomas or Joseph/John Joseph.
Virginia has mmn Jordan and Virtue doesn't have mmn at all.

Have fun sorting that lot out!

Re: Joseph Shirley. 1860. St Mary's, Wolverhampton, Staffs.

Just checked the later Censuses. In 1891 Virginia and son Henry are living in Falkland Street. John is a pauper in the Workhouse down as married
Virginia dies 1900 but 1901 John is still a pauper in the workhouse down as widower

Death for John Mar 1910 age 88 Wolverhampton 6b 373

Re: Joseph Shirley. 1860. St Mary's, Wolverhampton, Staffs.

I don't whether to say thanks, or run for the hills.

Jane or Virginia Shirley......have the same p.o.b., so I can only assume she is the same person.
I thought of Ginnie, Jenny, Jeanie etc.....and I guess it's possible, and have come across similar for Regina.

Elizabeth has many variations...eg. Betty, Betsy, Beth, Eliza., Lillybeth.....and on and on, why not Virginia.?

Even my wife has so many 'pet' variations of her christian names, from various people and family members, and I dare not say what mine are.

Thanks MLT.

Steve.

Re: Joseph Shirley. 1860. St Mary's, Wolverhampton, Staffs.

Do you have Joseph in all the Censuses and the possible death for him in Wolverhampton in 1937?
