Sarah was baptized the 16th of September in 1849 in Arrow, Warwickshire. Her parents were John Mucklow and Hannah James. According to Free BMD website, her birth was registered in the September 1/4 1849. This is a record that I could order.
I have her in the census records for 1861 to 1901 -- 1861 in Exhall, 1871 in Alcester, 1881 in Birmingham, 1891 in Aston All Saints Bordesley and 1901, Aston, St. Andrew. So I need to find her in 1851 and 1911.
Sarah married Josiah Dudley 28 July 1867 in Haselor, Warwickshire.
The family story that I have been told about her is that she had 22 children: three sets of twins, two sets of triplets but only four survived to adulthood.
So far, I have found only 5 children
Bertha Ann baptized 10 March 1869 -- she appears on the 1871 census A search of Free BMDs give this listing but not in the 1881 census where you would expect to still find her living with her parents. The following death is likely for her.
death March 1875 quarter
Next I have Joseph Gilbert.
This could be him
|birth March 1875 quarter Dudley||Josiah Gilbert||Derby||7b||479|
Next I have Charles H. born about 1875
Could this be his birth registration
birth June quarter 1877
Both Joseph and Charles move to the United States to live.
My grandmother, Emily Lily was born 31 January 1884 in Birmingham.
Her registration March quarter 1884
The last known child was Rose who was born 8 May 1889.
This is likely her registration - June quarter 1889.
Sarah's husband died 17 November 1901. Josiah's trade had been a bricklayer.
Although, I have been told by relatives that Sarah died in 1922, the registration that looks like a match for her is not until 1924.
Deaths Sep quarter 1924
Dudley Sarah 56 Birmingham 6d 198
As I review what I know about her, I see there are large gaps between some of the known children. Did she actually have 22 children? That remains to be seen.
