Hi! I have as a great-grandmother an Elizabeth Carter, born 1863-4 in Oakengates/Ketley Bank, (both the 1891 and 1901 census returns record this township as her birthplace) Shropshire. On her marriage to my great-grandfather Abraham Reeves in Hollinwood in 1884 she told the registrar that her father's name was Thomas Carter and that he was a Coachman.
