Hi Alan

Richard and Rosina were my Great Grandparents. They got married on 25/12/1897 at St Andrew's Church in Walsall. I believe they started married life at Rosina's parents home, who were Anthony and Sarah Borrino, in Green Lane Walsall. Anthony was an Italian immigrant, though a nationalised British citizen. He was a confectioner at the time of Rosina's marriage.

They set up home at Rumer Hill Cannock where Albert was born though they later moved into Bridgtown. My Granddad, Richard was born 6/8/1900 and died in December 1996.

By the 1901 census, Richard, who was born in Lichfield to Richard and Lydia, was employed as a fireman at the tileries.

Richard and Rosina had several children, the ones I can recall apart from Albert and Richard include: Joseph, William, Rose, Arthur, Ethel, May, Harry, Mabel, Elsie and Jack. Which one is your direct ancestor?

Would love to hear from you.
