The address where he died, High Town Cradley, supports the identification of this as the correct death certificate. He is recorded in the 1851 census as living at the East side of Cradley Village, as is his wife. She is also recorded at the same address in the 1861 census, but in 1857 her address is given as High Town Cradley. This implies that the East side of Cradley Village is also High Town Cradley.
Further confirmation comes from Ann Nock, the informant. She is presumably the Ann Nock living close to the Groves in the 1851 census: she is listed on HO107/2034 f80 p22, the Groves on HO107/2034 f79 p20.
|1841||Butchers Lane, Cradley|
|1851||East side of Village, Cradley|
|1854||High Town, Cradley|
Davenport, 1912 gives a Grove genealogy back to before 1538. This James Grove is not mentioned, but there is a James Grove, son of Samuel and Esther, bapt 1773 who could be this James Groves father. Eldest sons were often named for fathers, plus name Esther for grandmother and daughter.
A James Grove, born 4 July 1802 to William and Esther, was baptised 14 January 1806 at Park Lane Presbyterian, Cradley. Siblings Thomas (born 20 August 1798) and Hannah (7 September 1805) were baptised on the same day. Birth in 1802 is consistent with the age recorded on his death certificate, but not the census returns.
