Hi, thanks for the reply.
From the 1841 census it would appear that the two groups of sibs I'd found are in fact the same same family. Meaning that Joseph & Mary had at least 6 children: William b. 1814, Mary b. 1816, Joseph b. 1822, Isaac b. 1825, Abel b. 1827 and Elizabeth b. 1833. In 1841 Joseph Snr. is a scale beam maker.
I am descended from William b. 1814 through his eldest son Alfred, who moved up to Newcastle-on-Tyne. Alfred's father-in-law was also a scale maker.
I live in S. Yorks so can't easily get to Staffs to do any research, so I've ground to a halt for now. However, I'll have a look at the IGI films & see if anything comes to light from them.
I wouldn't be surprised if there isn't a link to the Uttoxeter families a generation or two further back; none of my ancestors seem to have stayed in the same place for very long!
