James Stirk

Any info needed regarding James STIRK and family. James married an Ann BARTLE. I only know this from their son's birth certificate. They had one son, as far as my research shows so far, a James STIRK born 12th August 1853 in Shipley.

The younger James STIRK married Mary Alice MILLS on 2nd June 1873 and they had a son, Thomas STIRK (born Dewsbury, 21st September 1873); daughter Alice Ann (born Lancs, 1875); and another son, John (born Dewsbury, 1882).

Both James STIRKs cannot be found on any censuses as far as I can tell. The younger James STIRK's family are shown on the 1881 Morley census as living with Mary Alice's parents, James and Betty MILLS - no sign of James himself though.

I have searched records (1837online etc) for the death of James STIRK junior from 1882 (birth of son, John) to 1901 (way after Mary Alice remarried as a widow in 1895) to no avail.

Does anyone out there have any info on this lot of STIRKs?
