    1871 British Census for Upper Gornal, Sedgley, Staffordshire, England
    1871 British Census for Upper Gornal, Sedgley, Staffordshire, England
    Census shows Isaac Fones with his wife Jane, sons John and Thomas, daughter Mary Ann and a grandson Arthur. Assumed Arthur is Mary Ann’s child.
    1881 British Census for Sedgley, Staffordshire, England
    1881 British Census for Lower Gornal, Sedgley, Staffordshire, England
    1881 Census shows 2 families - at top of page John Oakley, his wife Maria and a grandson, and a few lines down John Fones, his wife Ann Maria (Oakley) Fone, and daughter Salome. It’s quite likely that Ann Maria (Oakley) Fone is the daughter of John and Maria Oakley.
    1891 British Census for Sedgley, Staffordshire, England
    1891 British Census for 3 Holloway Sq, Lower Gornal, Sedgley, Staffordshire, England
    Census shows John Fones with wife Ann M(aria), and children John, William H, Maria and and un-named daughter who is less than 1 month old. From Bev’s records this child could be Sarah. Also living with them is Selina Oakley who is Ann Maria (Oakley)’s sister.

  • Notes 
    • Marriage record for John Fones and Ann Maria Oakley says John’s father’s name was Isaac. There is only one Isaac with a son John that I can find, although there is a discrepancy between the 1871 Census which shows Isaac and John both born in Dudley, Worcestershire, and the later 1881 and 1891 Census which show born in Sedgley, Staffordshire.
