Family of nailers

Flavell family 1861

Flavell family 1861

My wife's great grandmother Elizabeth Flavell was born in Bromsgrove in 1850, and in 1861, the census shows that her and her 3 sisters (11, 13, 16, 18) were all working as nailers. They lived at 55 Stourbridge Street at that time.

Another possible relative?
by: Caroline

I think I might be a relative of Elizabeth Flavell (I'm a grand daughter of Doreen Lewis) and would be very interested in finding out about this branch of the family, as I know almost nothing about it. If you have any more information you would be willing to share, please feel free to email me at

Just found someone in my family tree whose family were nailmakers here in 1851 and 1861.
The family name was Liddell.

A Flavell descendant wanting to make contact
by: Babs

I have spotted the 1861 Census information put on this site by a Geoffrey Turner from Sheffield and think this Elizabeth Flavell Bc1850 in Bromsgrove may very well be an ancestor of mine too. I would be willing to receive an email on if Geoffrey sees this comment and wishes to contact me.
