The Denver Family
This family, originally from Ireland emigrated to England and settled in Birmingham. My eldest ancestor in this line was William Denver and the story starts here with him.
Both parents were born in Ireland, although precisely where the census does not make clear. While in Birmingham William was a soap boiler or soap maker. I've checked the entire I.G.I. for Ireland but have found nothing related to this couple.
Francis H. Denver
He was born in Birmingham in 1834 the son of William Denver & his wife Charlott (sic). Francis was a carpenter & joiner. Francis Denver married Eliza Barnsley in Birmingham.
Sarah Selina Denver
Sarah was born in Birmingham in 1867, the daughter of Francis H. Denver & Eliza. My great-grandmother, she went on to marry Samuel John Stanley in Birmingham in 1889.
