Note on Husband: Joseph FISHER - shared note

1. I have tried looking for the family of Joseph and Sarah Fisher in the 1901 census (although we know that Joseph was already dead by 1897). It looks as though the whole family may have moved to London, since we know that his sone Samuel went there, and there is also a very plausible census record for Francis also in St Lukes, Holborn.


There are two possibles for Sarah Fisher, both born in Wolverhampton and living in Clerkenwell. One is aged 67 and the other 68, so maybe just a shade too old ? One is living alone and the other is living with two grandchildren - which isn't much help.


2. I have the marriage certificate of Sarah Dawes and Joseph Fisher, married August 13, 1855 in the parish church of Sedgley, registration district of Dudley. Joseph Fisher is aged 20, profession Tinman. Sarah Dawes is aged 21. Both are said to be living at Ettingshall. His father is William Fisher, Cordwainer. Her father is Joseph Dawes, Locksmith. Joseph could sign his name but Sarah could not. Witnesses are Thomas Richards and Emma Dawes.
