Joseph Wolfenden. Halifax.
I am descended from Joseph too. Joseph was the eldest son of Joseph Wolfenden (b 1781) and Mary Firth, married in Elland in 1802. They had 2 other sons and 2 daughters. I have traced a vast number of descendants from the 3 sons.
Joseph jnr married Susannah Carter and they had 5 sons and 3 daughters that I know of.
Elizabeth Wolfenden nee Shaw died in the Sept Q of 1884. John is shown on the 1891 census but not the 1901. Johns's brother Samuel was also a cork cutter in Huddersfield - probably worked for John.
Their sister Sally Wolfenden, the middle daughter of Joseph jnr, married Joseph Gaukroger, they are my great grandparents. Sally died in 1875 and Joseph married Susey, Sally's younger sister in 1885.
More info available if you wish.
