Thomas Griffith in 1841

Updated: Jan 27, 2019

This 1841 census record from Newton, Middlewich, Cheshire, England, appears to be the family of my 4th great-grandfather, Thomas Griffith - although this is unconfirmed at this point. Following is my brief knowledge and research on the Griffith family so far.

Middlewich is about 22 miles south of Manchester, where we know the Griffith family had portraits taken in the mid-late 1800s. Thomas Griffith's portrait was one of them. His granddaughter, Annie Robinson (daughter of Emma Griffith and George Robinson), was born in Manchester in 1870. Emma, we know was born March 3, 1837, so she would have been four years old in 1841. This matches the age of the girl, Emma, counted on the census (below).

There is one potential inconsistencies. On Emma's 1899 death certificate, her mother's name was given as Martha, but the informant may not have known or remembered her mother's name, or they could have used her middle name or nickname in one of those records.

If anyone can find out more about this family to help confirm this is the same family, please let us know in the comments below or contact me.
