TURNER families in Birmingham - possibly from 1700s

My 3rd great-grandfather Frederick Thomas TURNER, a brazier/coppersmith, emigrated with his family to New Zealand in 1870. He was born at Duddeston, Birmingham, baptised at Parish of St Martin, Birmingham in 1837 who married Maria Eliza EDWARDS at Saint Peter & Saint Paul's Church (Parish Church of Aston), Warwick in 1860. Some address information I have is: Great Hampton Street, All Saints, Birmingham, Warwickshire, England (1841 Census); 40 Buck Street, Birmingham, St Bartholomew, St Peter, Warwickshire, England (1851 Census);
Duddeston (1860 marriage)

His father was Thomas TURNER, a glass cutter/glass maker/coppersmith, born in 1817, baptised in 1822 in Birmingham who married Charlotte TAYLOR at St George, Birmingham in 1835. Some address information I have is: Fox Street, Birmingham, Warwickshire (1837 baptism record for son Frederick);Woodcock Street, Aston, Duddeston & Nechells, Warwick, England (1839 birth of son Samuel); Great Hampton Street, All Saints, Birmingham, Warwickshire, England (1841 Census & Charlotte's burial record in 1852)


I believe that Thomas's father was also a Thomas TURNER, a coppersmith brazier, baptised at St Philip, Birmingham in 1787 who married Sarah WATTS at Saint Martin, Birmingham in 1809. Address information I have is: 20 Masshouse Lane, 47 Dale end, Birmingham (White's 1855 Birmingham Directory); 20 Masshouse Lane, Birmingham, St Bartholomew, St Peter, Warwickshire, England (1861 Census); Masshouse Lane, Birmingham, Warwickshire, England (1862 burial record)

I also believe that the previous Thomas's father was another Thomas TURNER who married Elizabeth JONES at St Martin, Birmingham in 1784.

I am interested in obtaining additional confirmation of the above detail and in particular any descendant information of a Samuel TURNER born at Woodcock Street, Parish of Aston, Duddeston & Nechells, Aston Union, County of Warwick in 1839.
