Found in attic Brooks Family Bible

I have found the family bible for the Brooks family and am hoping to return it to the family.

Husband: Stephen Brooks Feb 8th 1844 son of Stephen & Eliza Brooks
Wife: Ann Selina Brooks Mar 16th 1841 daughter of Henry & Sarah Cartwright
married 13th Mar 1862

Children
Sarah Brooks Jan 4th 1864
Eliza Sep 3rd 1865
Mary Maria Dec 13th 1868
Martha Apr 9th 1872
Albert Aug 1st 1873
Jane Selina Mar 2nd 1875

From a cursory glance of the censuses it appears that the children and Stephen were born in Staffordshire and that Ann Selina was born in Worcestershire. Can anyone out there help me?

Hi I have a great grandmother selina brooks who married John or Joseph Heritage and lived in Portsmouth Hamptonshire when married. My grandmother was born in 1892 to selina. Selina died young when my grandmother Hilda was only 3 or 4 so we have no contact with her family as Hilda and infant sister Helen were raised in an orphanage by nuns. They moved to Canada in 1911. I do have my grandmothers few family photos none of which have names. They were taken in Portsmouth in 1893/4. Don't know if it's the same Selina Brooks as she would 've been 17 when Hilda was born.

Thanks for posting, David Mitchell Toronto Canada

Following message I sent you re Hearn /Brooks connection yesterday - I asked you about the Bible - at that point, had seen messages thread about this but not the one where you listed names in the Bible - once I saw this, spent evening looking up to see if there was connection but very much looks like not - don't think paternal ancestors were in the North at that point in time. Doesn't affect the other info I gave. All the best, MB

So looking forward to hearing from you.

Hi, in what city and state was the Bible found? I am searching for my Grandmother's family and she was from Greenback, Tennessee. No knowledge as to where she was actually born. I have not been able to find anything on her at all and don't even know her mother's and father's names.
