Finding Jessie Pugh's father

After the search for Jessie Pugh's mother, finding her father was easy. Jessie's 1882 birth certificate identifies her father as Christopher Thomas Pugh, a packer, of Freeth Street, Birmingham.  He's not shown on the 1891 census with Jessie, but was found on the 1881 census with his wife, Mary Ann, and their older children. This census shows that Christopher was born around 1841/2 in Birmingham.

Christopher and Mary Ann's marriage certificate states that his father was John Pugh, a machinist. I searched for a birth registration and was able to order a birth certificate for Christopher Thomas Pugh, born 1 August 1842 at 11 Court, Hospital Street, Birmingham, the son of John Pugh and Charlotte Harrison. I have also been able to trace Christopher back through the censuses to 1851 with his wife in 1871 and then with his parents in 1861 and 1851.
