Best answer

Family search has a Benjamin baptised

08 Jun 1806 TIPTON,​STAFFORD,​ENGLAND
parents: William Skeldon,​ Mary

I do not see any other children of a William and Mary around the time in Tipton.

 

Just out of interest Tipton has the oldest dated parish register in England startin in 1516

I just found your comment on Benjamin Skeldon,  can you tell me what the source was for this information?  He was my 2nd Great-Grandfather.  I do know that he was born in 1806 and was killed in a train wreck on 24 Aug 1858 at Stourbridge, Worcester.   Along with his wife, one son and an unborn child.   I am under the impression that he did have a sister, Sarah, born 1816,  who married a man named ARCH.

Can or will you HELP me?

Thank you,  Evelyn Murray McKelvey (Murray-2307)
Source is Tipton Parish register.
You can see the original via Familysearch at a family history centre or on findmypast if you have a login.

I've checked the original it has no additional information.

Hope this helps.
Thank you,  the TIPTON PARISH REGISTER, is what I was looking for.

Also, I have found sister Sarah & widowed mother, Mary in the 1851 Dudley Census.
