Catherine Bradbury

(maiden name unknown)

(1808 - )

1861 Census

Catherine is 53. She was born in Sedgley.

Her husband, Richard, age 52, is employed by Banks' - although in what occupation it is not clear. He was born in Wednesbury.

Since their marriage they have lived in Bilston, as all of the children have been born there. Darlaston is an area that comes under Bilston, so does Coseley. The street address is difficult to read. It looks like Foundry Street, Catherine's Croft. The houses there have been taken down, but the Street is still there, surrounded by allotments and engineering works, and one public house.

Three children are living with them:

  • William, is 17 - a 'scum?' malter.
  • Mary Ann, age 15, is listed as a Banks' Woman. This probably means she worked at the Maltster Company that was formed at the time. The exact location of that business is not known.
  • Ann is age 7 and still at school.
