Joseph Dunn Austin appears to have been given his mothers maiden name as his middle name. He was the second son and third child of William and Mary. The 1881 census records states his birthplace as Leycette (Cheswardine). Shropshire.

His first wife was Hannah Ratcliffe and she was Joseph Henry’s mother. They were married in 1861.

There is also a record of a Joseph D Austin marrying Elizabeth Fox / Malpas in Muckleston St Mary in 1869.
Eliza Hobson married Richard Potts in 1860 in Burslem and had four children John 1860, Jane 1865, Martha 1867 and Ellen Potts 1870.

Joseph later married Eliza Potts in 1874 after Hannah and then Elizabeth had presumably died. There is a record in Family search that the wedding took place in Wem on April 4th 1893. Though Staffordshire BMD has the marriage at Mucklestone St Mary in 1874.

He was working as a nailer when his son Joseph Henry was born in 1865 and his occupation on the 1871 census records is still a Nail Manufacturer.

In the 1881 census records he is living with his third wife Eliza and his step daughter Ellen Potts. Unfortunately the place he is living is only described as village, although the census place was Mucklestone. His son by Hannah , Joseph Henry is living with his mother Mary in Napley Heath. Joseph’s job in 1881 is stated as a gardener non domestic.

Joseph appears with his parents on the 1841 Census records.

Joseph is not as yet found on the 1851 Census records?
