Thomas Rollason and Eliza Mallin made their home at 85 Barrow St. West Bromich.
Eliza Mallin was the grand daughter of William Mallin d.c. 1816 , who married Mary. The Mallins’ must have been a moneyed people like the Rollasons. In 1851 the Mallins had three servants residing with Samuel,Elizabeth( Eliza’s parents) and their family in Oldbury Road in the parish of Harborne and hamlet of Smethwick.
Eliza was born in 1823 to father Samuel( a grocer and nail ironmonger of Spon Croft House, Oldbury Rd. parish of Harborne, Smethwick.) It seemed that Samuel’s wife Elizabeth Horton was his second wife b.1804/5 .
When Samuel’s father William died(1816), he was left with parcels of land in the parish of Harborne occupied by others. Plus 3 shops in Hargate Lane, West Bromich, as well as shop and buildings in Spon lane, and a farm occupied by himself rented from Rev. John Fox Palmer. Also money and household effects all left to his sons William and Samuel.
100 pounds each to William( his son), Elizabeth and Hannah( his daughers)- these were the only ones not married, and rents to Mary ( his wife ).
There were also other Mallins who were iron founders and engineers in West Bromich at this time. They are most likely related.
