Hi Marie. I think my Thomas and your Joseph are brothers. I haven't been researching for some time but have some info that might be interesting for you. From the Baptismal Registers of the Roman Catholic church of Saints Peter & Paul, Wolverhampton. Winifred b 6.5.1824, Mary b 4.9.1827 Joseph b 30.5.1829 Thomas b 26.6.1831 Elizabeth b 17.7.1833 John 1.9.1834 Edward 5.9.1837. Also possible Ann Mary 16.10.1825.
Info from a reasearcher: Joseph Fenn married Ann Teresa Gould 30th July 1823 St. Peters Collegiate Church (The Anglican Parish Church of Wolverhampton) From 1754 Hardwick Marriage Act for marriages to be legal they had to take place in Church of England. Between years 1754 and 1837 there are very few marriages recorded in RC Registers and they usually follow a marriage which has already occured in Anglican Church.
Thomas Fenn clerk left England 7.8.1852 arrived Australia 13.12.1852 Married 1853. Took his 2 sons Frank and Henry to England and there took a new wife Jane Tongue. They married St.Chads Cathedral in Birmingham 1866. (look on net.)(Edward Fenn (brother?) was the priest that married them.) Had a son Edward and then family returned to Australia 1868. Next son Arthur died at 30 weeks and then Jane died giving birth to daughter Ellen who died at 5 days in 1870. Thomas and new partner Sabina then had 4 sons. James, Joseph, John William my g-father and Charles. Thomas buried 1903 with Sabina 1927 Coburg Cemetery, Victoria Australia. An old diary exists that belonged to Thomas and had beautiful hand writing.
1881 British Census: Ann Fenn 80y Winnifred Fenn 50 Jane Gould 30 Joseph 18 etc. address High Green. Brewood Stafford England.
Hope this helps. Dianne
