COLVIN George and Margaret COLVIN (originally from Dumfries, Scotland) along with their 3 young children were enumerated at Hammersmith in 1871. he children's birthplace was Marylebone Parish. I don't know exactly when they moved to Cradley Heath, but George Maxwell Colvin died there in 1880, and his widow, Margaret Colvin (née Lockerby) and her 3 teenage children settled permanently in Cradley Heath. In 1911, her street address was 64 Corngreaves Rd. Her son, George, had married Sarah Jane Woodward and may have moved away, but 43-year old Alexander Adam Colvin with still unmarried and working on his own account at chain making (hammered). Daughter Agnes had married Thomas Walker in 1895, but she and her husband and growing family of children also remained in the family home at 64 Corngreaves Rd. Margaret Colvin (née Lockerby) died in 1914 at the age of 85.
