In Reply to: Re: TIMMINS FAMILY OF DUDLEY, ENGLAND (IN THE 1880'S) by Sue Carpenter of 363

Sue (and Karen, and anybody else with Timmins connections in Oldbury/Dudley),
I am doing a little research for a friend (my own research is for the Court family in Somerset), which is to trace her father's family (Timmins) who were from Birmingham. I have traced the family back to Isaac Timmins (who was born in Langley, Oldbury) and his father was William. The most likely candidate for Isaac and his family in 1881 is the folloiwng family living in Langley, Oldbury.

Name Relation Marital Status Gender Age Birthplace Occupation Disability
William TIMMINS Head M Male 29 Tat Bank, Worcester, England Boatman
Ann TIMMINS Wife M Female 27 Tat Bank, Worcester, England
Priscilla TIMMINS Daur Female 9 Tat Bank, Worcester, England
Isaac TIMMINS Son Male 7 Tat Bank, Worcester, England
William TIMMINS Son Male 4 Tat Bank, Worcester, England
Clara TIMMINS Daur Female 2 Tat Bank, Worcester, England

Source Information:
Dwelling Hobicus Lane 22
Census Place Oldbury, Worcester, England
Family History Library Film 1341681
Public Records Office Reference RG11
Piece / Folio 2841 / 69
Page Number 19

They were all born in Tat Bank (which is about a mile from Langley in Oldbury). Embarrassingly enough, I had never heard of either Langley or Tat Bank before doing this research - and I am from Birmingham!. One of the biggest hurdles I found was that the census lists both Langley and Tat Bank as being in Worcestershire (which it was at the time - but is nowhere near now). Anyway, if you have any information that could enable me to further this research I would be very grateful. For you information, the son (Isaac) married a woman called Emma Biddulph, from Birmingham (just in case you have this name as well)
Thanks in advance

PS. I noticed that someone listed the 44 Timmins from Oldbury found in the 1881 census, in anwser to another question. The Timmins family I have found is not in that list. This is because they are listed as being from Tat Bank (which is in Oldbury), you will also find Timmins listed as being from Langley (as oposed to Oldbury). Do not only concentrate Oldbury as the key-word - just a tip.
