Whistance Family Tree


I know very little about our Whistance family, other that what I have gleaned from censuses and certificates.

The family were living in Wednesbury, Staffordshire by the mid-18th century and seemed to be working as miners.    A few members of the family moved to Darlaston in the early 19th century, but the majority stayed in Wednesbury, living in nearby Walsall, during the next 100 years, working as engine turners and other similar industrial engineering jobs.
