THE FISHER FAMILIES OF TIPTON, STAFFORDSHIRE AND THE PEELING FAMILIES OF NORFOLK

Welcome to the Homepage of Joe Fisher

A special welcome to all Fishers particularly those with ancestors from around Tipton, Staffordshire & to all Peelings especially those originating from Norfolk

 

 INTRODUCTION

THE FISHERS

1. My own (paternal) branch of the FISHER family has recently been traced back by my cousin, Peter Fisher, to our seven-times-great-grandfather John Fisher, who was married in Tipton, Staffordshire in 1675. The information obtained to date is summarised together with its sources for the family from John, who was probably born around 1650, down to my grandfather, Joseph, who was born in Tipton in 1878 and joined the Royal Marines in London in 1895.  The corresponding Fisher family tree is shown here. Please let me know on joe.fisher@physics.org if any of this information is useful to you, or is wrong or if you can add to it.

2. Information on other Fishers in the area is also being sought. That from Kevin A Cole of Lexington, MA concerns a Tipton family from William Fisher (born 1682) to James Fisher (born 1782)  Please inform him on kcole14@juno.com copied to joe.fisher@physics.org if any of that information is useful to you, or is wrong or if you can add to it.

3. Information about "Fishers" in general in and around the Tipton area is also being collected.  So far it covers their marriages and births/baptisms together with extracts from the Tipton Census returns.  Please let me know on joe.fisher@physics.org if any of this information is useful to you, or is wrong or if you can add to it.

4. Finally, general information on Tipton itself and the surrounding areas has been (and is being) collected.  Please let me know on joe.fisher@physics.org if any of this information is useful to you, or is wrong or if you can add to it.

THE PEELINGS

5. My own (maternal) branch of the PEELING family has been traced back to my great-great-great-grandfather Robert Peeling, an agricultural labourer born in Norfolk in around 1790. The information obtained so far is summarised together with its sources for the family from Robert down to my grandfather, Alfred, who was born in Cubitt Town in 1872.  The corresponding Peeling family tree is shown here. Please let me know on joe.fisher@physics.org if any of this information is useful to you, or is wrong or if you can add to it.

6. General information about the Stanfield and Mileham areas of Norfolk and the Cubitt Town area of London is being collected together here as a general aid.  Please let me know on joe.fisher@physics.org if any of this information is useful to you, or is wrong or if you can add to it.
