Hi all,
I have a Wm. MALPASS b. abt. 1811 in Clayhills, Shropshire, England, later moved to Dudley area of BlackCountry. His wife is Susannah SMITH, they married 7 June 1840 in Dudley, Worcs., England.
One of his brothers was named John MALPASS, also b. Clayhills, Salop., but I have no other info. on him. Sorry! However, I believe that Wm. his brother is listed as a miner.
All the best,

Have you found them in any census at all? I've just had a quick look and cant find them. I also looked for william's birth on and there wasnt a single Malpass born in clay hills on that site, which is usually helpful.

I did find a William Malpass born in 1813 in Bitterley, Shropshire, he had a brother called John, born the same place. They also had many siblings. There parents were Benjamin and Elizabeth.

Hope this is some help.

Could Clay Hills be CLEE Hills? I have found this misinterpretation on the record of one of my family. Perhaps it was the way that the enumerator heard the word.
