JOHN and his cousins GEORGE and ROBERT AMSBURY were all born and baptised at St James Church in Mangotsfield Gloucestershire.  All were coal miners, an industry that was declining in their county.  In their teens they moved to Dudley in the fast growing "Black Country".
They all attended St Thomas Church in Dudley where each was married.  Their marriage certificates show that they were illiterate and my theory is that the priest signed their names as they pronounced them. From then on, they and their descendants adopted the name AINSBURY.
