Waters Upton MIs - Ball, Arthur and Charlotte

Sarah Cureton married William Abraham Richard Ball in 1870 (marriage registered at Shifnal, September quarter). William had been born in the parish of Hodnet in 1848, son of John Ball (born about 1827 in Prees) and his wife Emma (born about 1827 in Matlock, Derbyshire). The family appears on the 1861 census at Cold Hatton in the parish of Ercall Magna, where John was working as a tailor.

The 1871 census shows the recently married William and Sarah Ball living with the bride’s parents, Thomas Cureton (68, a gardener, born at Waters Upton) and Elizabeth (70, born at High Ercall. Ten years later William Ball (a tailor, as he had been in 1871) and Sarah were living at Waters Upton with four children, all born in the parish: William J Ball (9), Elizabeth E Ball (7), Mary A Ball (4) and Thomas C Ball (1, full name Thomas Cureton Ball).

The 1901 census, the last one on which Sarah appeared, shows William A R Ball, 52, Relieving officer and Registrar of Births and Death, living at Waters Upton with Sarah, 57, and sons Thomas C Ball (21) and Arthur Ball (18).

By 1911 William Ball was a widower, living at Waters Upton with daughter Elizabeth Emma and son Arthur. William was still working as a relieving officer (for the Wellington Board of Guardians). Arthur was pursuing a similar line of employment, being assistant overseer for the parishes of Bolas and Waters Upton.

It seems likely that Arthur was the Arthur Ball whose marriage to Charlotte Maynard was registered at Wellington in the March quarter of 1927. The 1911 census shows a Charlott Maynard, age 22, single, a domestic servant born in Stepney, Middlesex, visiting the household of J Harold Cock, a leather tanner, in Shrewsbury. She was probably the 2-year-old Charlotte Maynard living with her parents, Edward Maynard (a general labourer) and Jane, plus siblings Sarah (age 3) and Edward (3 months), at 13 Brewery Yard in Bow, London.

John Ball (baptised 1 Apr 1827 in Prees, son of John and Ann Ball) and his wife Emma (born about 1827 in Matlock, Derbyshire) appear on the 1861 census at Cold Hatton in the parish of Ercall Magna, where John was working as a tailor. With them were three children: William Abraham Richard Ball (born in the parish of Hodnet in 1848), Mary Ann Ball (born about 1852 in the parish of Ercall Magna) and Emily Ball (born about 1854 in the same parish).
