Corfield Family - West Midlands Area

  of 185

I am currently researching the CORFIELD surname. I have found the family on the 1981 Census in Tipton. I have not been able to find any links for this family prior to this census in Sandwell even though places of birth would suggest they were in the area in 1871 unless this is a mistake on the census. I have even checked Dudley and Walsall. I have found a few family members in 1891 in Tipton but most have disappeared, which would suggest they came from or moved outside the area. Names and information I have so far are as follows:-

Job Corfield born 1840 Walsall died 1886
Lousia (wife) born 1844/45 died 1895
Children
Samuel born 1862/63 Tipton
Benjamin b 1864 Tipton
William b 1868 Tipton
Thomas b 1871 Tipton
Joseph b 1872/73 Tipton
Sarah b 1878 Tipton
Elizabeth b 1880 Tipton
Job b 1882 Tipton

I'm hoping to find out the name of Job Snrs. father shortly as I've sent for the marrage certificate. This may hold some clues!

Most were coal miners and I suppose it is possible they moved area to find work.
If anyone finds any link to any of these please can you E-mail me.

Regards - Jan
