My Osborne Family

Grandad - George Herbert Osborne(with drum)
Grandad - George Herbert Osborne (with drum)

Grandad brought his family up in Handsworth in Crompton Road, but before that all his family came from Aston, right back to the 16th/17th centuries.

Unfortunately, a lot of the Parish Records pages at that time consist of only a few dots! It is, therefore, impossible to trace them back any further than I have.

I have traced other Osbornes though, back to 1602 - a Humphrey Osborne.

My family is as follows:

Edward Osborne About 1634 Birmingham
William Osborn son of Edward and Dorothy? 11/05/1655 Aston Juxta
Joseph Osborne son of William (born 20/04/1686) 01/05/1686 St Martin's
