On the 1851 cenus,

Henry MILES states he was born Blakeney, Woodside - and occupation: Sawyer

Looking for any MILES around the area nearer Henry's birth :

The Miles appear to be Non-conformist - but also go by the surnames MOYLES

e.g.

Marriage at Awre

29 August 1803

Richard MILES - Bachelor of this Parish
Sarah WAIT - Spinster, of this Parish

by banns

witnesses: Sarah FOXALL
Michasel WEBB (Parish) Clerk

Notes: BTs show Groom as Richard MOYLES and Bride as Sarah WAITE

This couples have

William MILES in 1808 - Parish: Awre
1827 Philip - (residence: Blakeney Woodside) - Parish Newnham, Blakeney, Tabernacle

---

Awre baptisms

1751 Richard MOYLES - parents: William & Sarah
1759 William MOYLES - parents: William & Elizabeth
1762 Thomas - parents: William & Elizabeth


Awre marriage at Awre

William MOYLES - 17 February 1759 to Elizabeth LEWIS

----

On the 1841 census for Newcastle Under Lyme

Henry MILES - 75-79
Hannah MILES - 65-69
John MILES - 25-29

Looking at Family Search : this couple had Sons: Joseph & John - and must have had a daughter i.e. on the 1851 census he has Robert CROOMER his Grandson with him.

? There is a Henry MILES witnessing two wedding in Newland - 27 and 28 November 1787 : John REED to Mary DREW and Philip YOUNG to Sarah BUTLER - not sure if its 'your' Henry
----

Assume Robert COOMER Grandson on the 1851 census parents were: George COOMER and Catharine MILES married 1827, Wolstanton, Staffordshire.

What other children did they have ? Looking for family names etc.
