HARRISON, MASON, SUTTON and WRIGHT
 
In February 2011, several documents were donated to Burntwood Family History Group by Arline VOLLAM from Suffolk whose family had connections with Chase Terrace. The documents included two old family bibles and an old prayer book. The bibles, prayer book and other documents contained entries of the names of people, who at the times of the entries, were from Tamworth, Shenstone, Harleston, Lichfield, Chase Terrace, and Burntwood. The family surnames entered in the documents are HARRISON, MASON, SUTTON and WRIGHT. Amongst the documents were two photographs, one of Joseph WRIGHT and the other of Ann WRIGHT (nee SUTTON) both taken in 1856.
 
There were also several documents relating to Saint John's Church, Chase Terrace

The earliest entries are those of Thomas SUTTON, born the 28th June 1809 and his wife Sarah born 7th March 1809. Thomas was from Shenstone. He married Ann in Shenstone and with his wife, they moved to Harlaston and settled there. They had several children between 1835 and 1848 including John, Ann, Phoebe, Harriott, Emma and Alfred.

Their daughter Ann SUTTON born in 1837 and christened in Harleston, was to marry Joseph WRIGHT.

Joseph WRIGHT was born in 1835 and christened in Tamworth. He was one of 14 children born to Mary WRIGHT (nee MASON) and her husband William WRIGHT between 1829 and 1849.

Joseph WRIGHT married Ann SUTTON in Harleston in 1858.

Between 1860 and 1879, Joseph and Ann had nine children including Albert the eldest.

By 1861 young Albert and his parents had moved to Wilnecote and his father Joseph was a Labourer.

In 1871 Albert, a Scholar and his family were living in Wilnecote.

In 1881 Albert and his family were living in Chase Terrace and Albert had now become a Coal Miner.

On the 17th February 1885 Albert was killed in a pit accident and the following week he was interred at Burntwood Cemetery.

Albert’s sister Lucy continued to live in Burntwood and went on to have a daughter Mabel, whose birth was registered in Lichfield.

The documents containing names appear below, as do the photographs. A family tree has been compiled from the entries and also appears below and then finally a time line for the families.
