Cliffs/Clifts from Shropshire or nearby.
Posted by: Michael Clift (ID *****2864) Date: April 21, 2002 at 06:47:16

(1) I am trying to trace the background of a Robert Cliff who, on 31st December, 1795 married an Elizabeth Cartwright in Edgmond, Shropshire. They had the following children, Elizabeth b,1796 William b. 1797 Ann b.1798 Mary b. 1804 Thomas b. 1806 and Joseph b. 1808. All were born in Great Bolas a small village close - by to Edgmond.
Robert died in 1828 and was buried on 10th December at Great Bolas, he was then 59. Making him born in 1769? His wife came from Edgmond but there were no Cliffs/Clifts in the village at that time. It is possible that he came from Lilleshall, Market Drayton or locations just over the Staffordshire border where there were many Cliffs living.

(2) I am also trying to trace the descendants of Reuben Cliff. born 1845 in Cherrington, Shropshire who married Sarah Powell of Edgmond on 4th February, 1872 at Wombridge, Shropshire and who later went to live in Broomfield Place, Newport, Shropshire where they had an extremly large family
- the last of their family, Emily Clift of Chetwynd Road, Newport died October, 1975.

(3 Somehow related to Reuben Cliff was a Kenneth John Clift who in 1976 was living in Tipton, West Midlands and who later went to live in Albrighton, Shropshire.I am trying to trace relatives of Kenneth also.
Would be grateful for any assistance .
