English BRINDLEYS , William and son John

William Brindleys and John Brindleys seem to be thick on the ground, but I wonder if anyone connects to this combination and/or can shed more light on it?

There was a William Brindley who was an Ironmonger. He would have been born perhaps in the 1770's. Perhaps he was a grandson of John 'the potter'?

{James, the son of John the P. had a son called William but this is probably not the right one.)

William(Ironmonger)BRINDLEY had a son, John, born about 1794. Possible he was born in Audley, Staffs. John became a soldier and was in the 2nd regiment of the Life Guards.

John was later described as a Blacksmith. Perhaps his skills were learnt from his father.

In 1841 he was living in Chelsea(he also spent some time in Windsor and Kensington) with his second wife, Martha (nee ADAMS, b about 1814 who was connected to the Adams pottery family.)He also had a daughter, Martha, age 2.

He was married in 1839 in Kensington. He married twice. His first wife's name unknown. In 1841 on the census there was also a William BRINDLEY living with them, age 14 (born about 1827)so this was perhaps his son from the first marriage. If so, John's first wife died between 1827 and 1839. She may have come from Staffordshire(or?) as her son, William, was listed as not having been born in London. It would be nice to know her name.

As William( Ironmonger) had a son called John( soldier) and he in turn had a son called William, I am wondering if this was a pattern, and William's father was a John BRINDLEY?
