AMPHLETT My Grandparents live in Quarry Bank and I have traced the family tree back to 1699. However although going back a long way I have very little detail of the lives they led in the Quarry Bank area and their jobs. I know my Grandfather was a blacksmith but have no information about where he worked in Cradley. - Any help would be appreciated.
AMPHLETT In 1901 my great grandparents John and Sarah AMPHLETT lived at 122 New Street, Quarry Bank. I believe John was a brickmaker and his family came from the Madeley area of Shropshire. If anyone can help in filling in details on the brickworks and the location I would be most grateful.
ATTWOOD Mary Ann ATTWOOD was my great grandmother, born 1869, married John RAYBOULD in 1887, died 1921. This Attwood family is the same one as almost every Attwood in the Black Country, traceable back to the 1400s, when they lived at Wolverley Court near Kidderminster.
