    Hi all,

    Thanks for allowing me to join.

    I'm in need of some local assistance.

    I'm searching for a family by the name of Feery. An Edward Feery lived in Stafford pre WWII. He died in Stafford in 1950. I do know following generations lived there also.
    The associated names are Cartwright, Jones and Heaton.

    I'm assisting someone here in Ireland with their family tree. An Edward Feery is little known of, I believe Edward in Stafford is the man I'm looking for.

    If these names are recognisable to anyone, could you please reply?

    Many thanks.

    Honor A Feery married John H Moore Q3 1944 Stafford 6b 45

    Kathleen Feery married Alan H Jones Q4 1951 Stafford 9b 903

    Jean A Cartwright married John Feery Q1 1958 Stafford 9b 1348

    Edward Feery married May Barker Q2 1917 Walsall 6b 1204. May not Mary as I wrote above

    Children of Edward & May

    Edward b Q2 1920 Walsall 6b 1660
    Honor A b Q4 1923 Walsall 6b 1250. Looks as though the 1924 date given in 1939 was wrong
    Patrick b Q2 1925 Walsall 6b 1311
    Kathleen b Q2 1929 Walsall 6b 1117
    John b Q1 1933 Walsall 6b 874

    I wonder if he might even be the John Feery in Gnosall above?

    And the one who married Jean Cartwright in 1958 - you thought it was John & Jean in Gnosall?

    192.com says the Gnosall couple are/were John and Jean. It's not always 100% up-to-date. Their phone number and address is in the link above, I didn't really want to put it directly in here.

    1911 May Barker may be the one living with her parents George & Honour Barker at 20 Newland Street, Walsall. Need to look at the Edward / May mariage certificate to check. Can't find Edward in 1911 at the moment.

    They'd be in their mid 80s now, if the right people, but still feasible.

    I'll try to have a bit more of a ferret around later on.

    Thanks Noah.

    There are variants of the name. Im hoping its the Edward from Ireland, no sign of him in the Irish 1911 census. Its possible he was in the British Army ( not the Edward Feery that appears on Ancestry), from Clara, Co. Offaly.

    Yes, found a lot of name variants!

    Two trees on Ancestry, both owned by people called Heaton

    One is private, but you can see they have Edward born 1891 Tullamore, Kerry.

    The other is open, owned by D Keaton & has no sources quoted so is uncheckable. Some of the facts clearly relate to the Stafford Edward and cross check with the information above. It has no details of birth but claims Edward's parents were Michael Feery & Catherine Lipsam.
    It has Edward's wife May's death in 1990.
    Edward jun. marrying "Charlotte" and having two sons
    Kathleen marrying Alan Henry Jones, having two daughters and dying 19 April 2003.

    Some of that agrees with information above and some checks out further
    May Feery died Q3 1990 Cannock Chase 30 488 which looks fine for the Stafford May
    Kathleen's daughter's look to be Annabell Jones b Q2 1953 Stafford 9b 578 and Vivienne Jones b Q4 1958 Stafford 9b 622. Kathleen's death is odd, confirmed by another tree which only has her and her children on a tree relating to her husband and by Ancestry's Staffordshire Birth Marriage & Death Indexes but the date of registration of the death is February 2004, why so long between death & registration? Register no. A46E, District & SubDistrict 735/1a Entry no. 17
    Alan Jones death is given as 2009 by two Ancestry trees.

    I think the Lincolnshire Feery's are highly unlikely. At least two Edward Feerys from Clara serving in the British Army in the First World War.
    One born 1891 Kilbride, Clara. Leinster Rgt seems unlikely, re-enlisted after the war and was discharged to 36 Clawshawm, Clara, not Stafford.
    One birth given as birth 1887, Clara served Royal Garrison Artillery but could have lied about his age in order to enlist.

    Thanks a lot Noah.

    I'm even more convinced this is the Edward that I'm looking for.

    I'll try that address in Stafford.

    I really appreciate all of your efforts.

    All the best,

    Kevin.

    I reckon you need to get Edward & May Baker's wedding certificate. It should give his father's name and occupation; you may get lucky with Edward's occupation as well, if he was in the military you might just get "Soldier" but sometimes you get details, "Private in Lord Tomnoddy's Regiment of Foot & Mouth" sort of thing. Military records also might be a source, if the right ones have survived you might get next of kin changing from parents to May, or at least May added as a dependant. Don't know if anyone on here recognised Annabel or Vivienne Jones.

    Just picked up, Annabell Jones married Graham B Heaton Q3 1977 Stafford 30 1551. Are they still around? Seem to have had two children, Laura b Q1 1981 Stafford 30 1177 and Natalie b Q3 1983 Stafford 30 1291.

    Certainly might be worth contacting the owners of the two trees on Ancestry to find out what they know and what their information is based on. Ann Heaton has the private tree & D Heaton the public one (D is over 60 so not a son of Graham & Annabell)

    I have tried contacting, no reply yet.

    The 1939 register gives Edward's d.o.b. which is only a week out from the birth cert I have from here. I have also contacted several churches in Walsall looking for the marriage details. I'll apply for the cert if I don't get anything concrete in the next week.

    Thanks again, you've been a great help!
