PITT family: I am looking for links with Daniel PITT born Oct 17, 1879 at Powick, father George PITT, a farm labourer of Sand Pits, Powick, and Matilda PITT (nee LEE I believe) in District Register of Upton within the Sub District of Hanley Castle. Also the marriage of Daniel PITT, a gardener, to Alice ROSE of St John's, Worcester (father Joseph ROSE a labourer) at St Peter's Church, Powick on November 30th 1907, conducted by the chaplain of Powick Asylum. Witnesses were Alfred HARRIS and Ameilia JOHNSON and Ellen ROBERTS. Daniel PITT died on February 17th 1951 at 1, Council Houses, Dilmore Lane, Fernhill Heath aged 71, a gardener in domestic service; present at his death was his daughter D. M. MASTERS of the same address. I have a record of the death of Alice PITT (nee ROSE) on December 31st 1945 of the address in Dilmore Lane, aged 62, wife of Daniel PITT with D. M. Masters of Sandford Yard, Severn Stoke as informant. There is a gravestone bearing the name PITT in the cemetary at Claines Parish Church. The PITT family have strong connections with both Claines and Powick. Current relative is Nancy Bateman (nee PITT) married to Ronald Bateman, a builder and former publican, now living in Loughborough. Her brother: James H. PITT, Stoker 2nd Class P/KX 95670 was one of the entire ship's crew of HMS Exmouth sunk in the Moray Firth in 1940 by enemy action.
My great-grandmother, PHOEBE WOOLLAMS is listed in the 1881
Census as being a scholar aged 14 at the Industrial School at Madresfield.
