Blocksidges / Hammonds of Dawley Shropshire

Blocksidges / Hammonds of Dawley Shropshire

Surnames: Hammond Blocksidge Leek
I am trying to trace my great grandfather's relatives - Fred Hammond (1873). He died in Wellington Shropshire having married Naomi Leek , but had connections with Bilston, Staffordshire. In the early 1800s George Hammonds of Dawley Shropshire married Keziah Blocksidge. I believe some of Keziah's sisters emigrated to USA - the Blocksidges. Hope someone can fill in my gaps !!

I found a Fred Hammond in the 1881 and 1891 census who was born in Bilston but not until about 1878. In 1891 he had 6 brothers and 1 sister but I believe there were more children. His dad was Richard and his mother was Mary Ann (Challener?). Richard's parents were probably Edward and Mary Ann Hammond.
I did find a record for a Keziah Hammonds in 1861 who was born in Shropshire, little Dawley. She was a widow aged 61 and she had 3 children at home and her nephew, Richard Hammond age 6 months.
Hope some of this helps.
