The Parents and Grand-Parents of

The Penfields, Grand-Parents and Parents of Emily Pinfold:

At the 1901 Census, that is, two years before the wedding of Emily Pinfold and Peter McTait, (For their family, press HERE.) we find, living at 70 Angelina Street in the Civil Parish of Aston and in the Ecclesiastical Parish of St Albans, in South Birmingham, the family of Henry Pinfield. That family has 12 members in all, the parents, 9 children from the parents and one brother of the father, Joseph Pinfield, said to be 14 years of age [sic]. The parents, Henry Pinfield and Sarah [sic] Pinfield, are both 50 years of age and so were born around 1851. He is a jobbing carter. The children are all single. (This Act is found further down.) They are:

  1. Henry J. Pinfield, son, 25 years old and thus born around 1876
  2. Emily Pinfield, daughter, 20 years old and thus born around 1881
  3. Ellen Pinfield, daughter, 19 years old and thus born around 1882
  4. Sarah A. Pinfield, daughter, 18 years old and thus born around 1883
  5. Mary J. Pinfield, daughter, 16 years old and thus born around 1886
  6. Winifrid Pinfield, daughter, 14 years old and thus born around 1887
  7. Samuel Pinfield, son, 13 years old and thus born around 1888
  8. Kate Pinfield, daughter, 10 years old and thus born around 1891
  9. Thomas Pinfield, son, 7 years old and thus born around 1894.

At the 1891 Census, we find the same family living at 169 Barford road in South Birmingham. Both parents are said to be 39 years old, but here the mother is called Selina Pinfield. The children's age is consistent with the other Census, with Kate Pinfield being 7 months old. The brother Joseph Pinfield is said to be 29 years of age, which is certainly more in line with the age of Henry Pinfield himself. The husband and his brother were born in Gloustershire while the mother and her children were from Birmingham. (This Act is found further down.)

Now a Henry Pinfield, son of John Pinfield, born around 1851, did marry on the 9th March 1874 at the Church of All Saints, in Birmingham, Warwick, Selina Jane Smith, daughter of William Smith. The age of their eldest child is consistent with such a marriage.

We find the same family at the 1881 Census for Birmingham. The parents are said to be 27 years of age, the brother, 22. Emily Pinfield is 1 year old and her sister who will be given the name Ellen Pinfield is 6 days old. The father and his brother were born in Moreton In the Marsh, Gloustershire. (This Act is found further down.)

The brothers should be alive at the 1871 Census but this time probably with their parent's family. Indeed, we find one of the two brothers, Joseph Pinfield with his parents, John Pinfield, a 60 years old labourer, and his wife, Winifred Pinfield, a 56 year old washer woman. The other Henry Pinfield is simply not in that Census or in such a way as cannot be found. On the other hand, another son, William Pinfield is mentioned. He is 33 years of age and from Moreton in the Marsh. (This Act is found further down.)

At the 1861 Census in Moreton in the Marsh, we find both brothers, respectively 8 and 4 years old, and so consistent with the other censuses. The father's name is indeed John Pinfield, 50 years old and so born around 1811, and his wife Winifred Pinfield, 40 years old and thus born around 1821. The father is a agricultural labourer born in Littletown. The mother is born in Ilmington in Warrickshire. (This Act is found further down.)

Ten years earlier, at the 1851 Census, things are totally different: John Pinfield is a widower and a linen weaver born in Littleton, Worcestershire. He is said to be 42 years old, and so born around 1809. He has four children at home, all born in Moreton, Gloustershire:

  1. Maria Pinfield, 14 years old and thus born around 1837. Her job is described as a Factory Girl Linen winder.
  2. William Pinfield, also 14 years old and thus born around 1837. His job description is Errand Boy. He is the one back "home" at the 1871 Census.
  3. George Pinfield, 9 years old and thus born around 1842. His job description is agricultural labourer.
  4. John Pinfield, 7 years old and thus born around 1844.

Two more people lodge there: Winifred Keyte, 35 years old and thus born in 1816 in Islington, Warwickshire, a laundress, and William Keyte, 9 years old and thus born around 1842 in Worcestershire, a linen winder. (This Act is found further down.)

The 1851 Census we just refered to took place on the 30th of March 1851. On May 3rd 1851, John Pinfield married at Moreton in the Marsh Winifred Keyte, and so appeared as Winifred Pinfield in the 1861 Census. She is the mother of our Henry Pinfield and our Joseph Pinfield. By 1861, the other members of their families have moved on.

The 1841 Census for Moreton in the Marsh mentions John Pinfield, 30 years old and so born around 1811. He was then a cheese cloth weaver His wife Elizabeth Pinfield was also 30. They had three children at home: Maria Pinfield and William Pinfield, 5 years old and so born around 1836, and George Pinfield, 1 year old and so born around 1850. (This Act is found further down.)

Considering the children's ages the parents must have married around 1835. Now a John Pinfold married on November 5th 1833 in Arley, Warwickshire, a widow called Elizabeth Hartill. (This Act is found further down.) She had married Edward Hartell on the 6th October 1825 under her maiden name of Elizabeth Argyle. (This Act is found further down.) He was buried on June 22nd 1827 at the age of 29. (This Act is found further down.) A Elizabeth Pinfield was buried on the 3rd of January 1844 in Moreton in Marsh. She was 32 years old.

A Winifred Pinfold was buried in 1885 at the Witton Cemetary in Birmingham, Warwick. A John Pinfold was buried in Arley, Warwick, on 30 October 1890. Now consistent with those dates we find that John Pinfield is also found at the 1881 Census. He is said to be 62 years old and his wife, Winifred Pinfield, 64 years of age, values that are quite wrong. His son William Pinfield, 43 years of age, is living with them. He had been living with them on and off as we have seen.

We started with the 1901 Census as this was the last one mentioning Emily Pinfield. But the family of her parents is also found at the 1911 Census. Unfortunately, the entries to this census are wrong on one important point: the number of pregnancies: it states that there were five; in fact there were nine pregnancies as there were nine children mentioned on the 1901 Census.

If we start with the list from that Census, we find that:

  1. Henry J. Pinfield, son, born around 1876 is 37 years old, single, living at home and filling the 1911 Census form for his illiterate father
  2. Emily Pinfield, daughter, born around 1881, married Peter McTait on the 4th Quarter of 1903 in Aston
  3. Ellen Pinfield, daughter, born around 1882, married John Smith at Kings Norton, Worcestershire, in the 3rd quarter of 1904
  4. Sarah A. Pinfield, daughter, born around 1883, is 27 years old, single and living at home
  5. Mary Jane Pinfield, daughter, born around 1886, married in Aston, Warwickshire, on the 4th Quarter of 1907, Silas James Hartwell, who, it seems, died in 1909.
  6. Winifrid Pinfield, daughter, born around 1887, is 23 years old, single and living at home
  7. Samuel Pinfield, son, born around 1888, married in Aston in the 3rd quarter of 1910 Susan Weston.
  8. Kate Pinfield, daughter, born around 1891, is 20 years old, single and living at home. It seems that she married William E Smith in the second Quarter of 1911.
  9. Thomas Pinfield, son, born around 1894, is 17 years old, single and living at home. He might have married May Powell in the first Quarter of 1920.

A Henry Pinfield aged 76 years died and was buried in the second Quarter of 1928 in Birmingham South.
