I'm currently tracing my family history and believe that my Great, great, Great Grandfather was Charles Smith, married to Anne. I have located information on the 1841 census which states that Charles was a Farrier. The family lived in Bisley. His wife, Anne and 3 of their children are recorded as working at the Woollen factory. My Great, Great Grandfather; William is recorded (age 15) as being a Barge man.

If anyone thinks they might be able to give me any information, especially regarding the woollen mills or Farrier, I would be delighted. I have to say the village of Bisley looks beautiful and I will be visiting as soon as I can!

I am related to other SMITHs from Bisley, as shown in this group from the 1841 Census:

1841 Census Information:
HO107/349/5, ED 1, 3, 20 (GSU No. 288762)
Edgeworth, Bisley, Cotswold, Cirencester, Gloucestershire, England
Jacob SMITH, male, 30, Ag Lab, Gloucestershire
Hester SMITH, female, 30, Gloucestershire
William SMITH, male, 11, Gloucestershire
Fanny SMITH, female, 9, Gloucestershire
Fred SMITH, male, 7, Gloucestershire
Ann SMITH, female, 3, Gloucestershire
Charles SMITH, male, 2, Gloucestershire
Nathaniel SMITH, male, 2 months, Gloucestershire

The baby, Nathaniel, aged 2 months, was my great great grandfather.

(His daughter Selina Clementina married George Hubert LEECH, whose son Sidney John LEECH was my mother's father.)

Let me know if you think they could be related.
