George Grosvenor (1813 - 1891)

Postby Daz » Thu May 11, 2017 12:44 pm

I am seeking a baptism entry or proof of the parents of George my 3x great grandfather. According to census records George was born in Wolverhampton. He married on 3rd April 1836 in Wolverhampton to Sarah Green.
Thanks

On findmypast, familysearch, and freereg, the only entry for a George Grosvenor christened in Staffs from 1805-15, is 11/1/1807 at Codsall St Nicholas, parents Abel and Martha Grosvenor. (Abel and Martha are still alive in 1841, living in Pattingham, Wolverhampton.) The christening is much earlier than George's stated age on censuses, but I mention it in case the parents' names mean something to you.

Thank you for looking. This George from 1807 is living in Kingswinford on the 1841 census.

Good Morning
Can I just float a suggestion past you.
There is a Farmer Grovenor marring a Ann Mountford widow at Wolverhampton St Peters 14.1.1815.
witnesses Sam Roberts and William Lees.
There is also a George Mountford s of Mary Mountford charwoman bapt 14.3.1813 at Wolverhampton.
Could Ann have been a Mary Ann and her son George the child of Farmer Grovenor born before their marriage in 1815?
Farmer Grovenor is baptised 4.1.1787 At St Peters to John and Katherine Grovenor seemingly a watchmaker in the area.There was a brother George Farmer Grovenor who died as a baby.
Is it worth looking farther into the family?

Thank you for the information. It would explain why he was at Edward Grosvenor's death in 1839 (on death certificate). Edward was his uncle. I'll check the records further next week.
