So here is another chart created from my research into the family’s history.  Thomas Jennings and his family ran the Swan pub in Yardley, Birmingham.  He was also a butcher.

I went to the church- St Edburgha at Yardley to try and find their gravestones.  They were buried there according to the church’s records at the Birmingham Public Library.  And maybe they still are, but the church in its wisdom ‘landscaped’ its graveyard and removed every blasted stone.  The information that they had is lost now.  Very ticked off on my own behalf, of course, but also for anyone else who might have benefitted from the information.  I saw an old photo of the church and the graveyard was full of stones!
