There is a 1841 Census for a William in Birmingham in 1922. Parents Joseph 1801, Esther 1796, and siblings Mary 1824, Jemima 1828, Samuel 1829, George 1834, Elizabeth 1836 Jane 1838. Difficult to make out the trade of either William or his father. They lived at Bartholomew Row, St Thomas, Birmingham
In 1851 census William a "German Silver Polisher" is living with wife Sarah 1823 children William 1843, Sarah 1845, George 1847, John 1849, James 2 months. They also had a servant Mary Ann Sticklin aged 16. They lived at 24 Lower Windsor Street, Aston, Birmingham

Many thanks for your research, i don't think these are the right William and Sarah, I no for certain that there was only the two son's. William was apparently a Sawyer by occupation, and may have been married in Kings Norton Birmingham. Family are certain that he owned a section of land in Birmingham also, which he had not sold before immigrating to New Zealand. My appreciation for your help.
