James and Happy Hamer were neighbours of Alice Mather and her daughters family, Happy Mather in 1871 (just after married) Two Happy's so close together - Are they related ?

In 1861, William (16) was with parents and family at 18 Garside Street, West Bolton.

In 1863 William married Maria Barrow and they had a Son William than died and then a son Jesse in 1864, before his wife Maria died in 1866.  William then returned to his parents, leving Jesse to be brought up by her grandparents.
NOTE: There may be two different Williams!

In 1871, William (26), unmarried was still with his parents.

William was only married for 3 years, had a son Jesse before his wife Maria died.  We dont know what happened to William after that.

William probably had a Brother Jesse (b.1849), who died in Bolton in 1923, aged 74.
1795 - 1857 Maria Mather 62 62 In 1841 (census), and 1843, William and Maria were Occupier of Spring Gardens, Great Bolton (at the time of Happy's death). 1790 - 1852 William Collings 62 62 William's father was Samuel Collings (or "Collinge" on marriage).

In 1841, William a labourer and Maria Collings (50 & 40) were in Spring Gardens, Bolton with Joseph (17), Sarah (8), Maria (7) and Esther (1).

In 1843, William Collins (Happys' son-in-law) reported the death of Happy Cheetham, nee Barron, nee Lomax, occupier of Spring Gardens, Great Bolton.

In 1851, William (Ag Labourer) and Maria Collings (60 & 50) were at Mason Fold, Horwich with daughters Maria and Esther (16 & 10).
1818 - 1890 James Collings 72 72 Only James was baptised COLLINGS.  The later children were COLLINS. 1821 Mary Collins Mary had already left home by 1841, so where was she?  Perhaps we have the wrong marriage!

In 1862, Mary had a son Robert.  He died in 1864 aged 2.

In 1871, Samuel and Mary (48 & 49) were at Barn Street, Bolton with Elijah (20) and Maria (14).
1825 Joseph Collings In 1844 son William was born before their marriage.  Births are then registered in West Boplton as a mix of COLLINS (for Maria and Samuel) and COLLINGE (for the others).

In 1851, Joseph and Ann (26 & 27) were at 7 Gas Street, Bolton with William (7) and Maria (4).

In 1861, Joseph and Ann (33 & 34) are at 18 Garside Street with William (16), Maria (14), Sarah (6), John (4), Joseph (2) and Samule (4 mo)
1827 - 1898 Samuel Mather 71 71 In 1851, Samuel and Ann were living at 48 Blackburn Road.  Ann Mather (Solomon's daughter) was a neighbour.

Samuel was a spinner when his children John and Alice were Baptised.

Family moved from Sharples to Eastern Bolton dirtrict between 1852 and 1855, then to Little Bolton by 1859.

Samuel, Ann and three others are all buried in the same Mather grave at Astley Bridge.
1848 - 1909 James Cunliffe Hamer 60 60 Father Peter Hamer and mother Elizabeth Cunliffe 1814 John Collings Named John Collins in 1834 when married and for all the births, baptism and burial records to 1840.  After that, Mary and Williams baptism (but not birth) and Happy and George's births were registerd as COLLINGE (or COLLINGS).

Moved from Great Bolton (probably Deane where they married and wife Sarah later buried) to Little Bolton about 1837.  Abode was Little Bolton for Harriet's burial and all later birth records.

In 1841, John a cotton opperative and Sarah Collings (both 25) are at Haigh Street, L.B. with Mary (3) and William (1).

In 1851, John a cotton spinner and Sarah (37 & 39) are at 70 Turton Street, L.B. with Mary (14), William (12), Edmund (8), Happy (5) and George (2).

In 1861, living at 16 Woods Court, Bolton with wife Sarah and three children.

The ages of the two Sarahs are diferent. Between 1851 and 1861.  Also, James is a step-son.  The first Sarah must have died, and John remarried another Sarah.

John was a Cotton Wash Dealer, and a Butcher when Happy married in 1868, and may have emigrated after 1861, as none of the family are to be found in the UK.
~1813 Sarah Threlfall Bowcock and Threlfall are the two recorded maiden names for a the mmiage in Manchester, St John in 1857.

Sarah Bowcock is in Bolton in 1851 with her father Richard Threlfall (b.1789)

Also, Sarah is living at 10 Woods Court in 1851 and 1861, so this must be the right person.  The 1861 census shows Sarah's farther as Richard Threfall, born 1789
1849 George Collings <male> Bocock 1850 James Bocock James recorded as Step Son in 1861, so marriage to Sarah must be after 1850, and all other children are from another mother (also Sarah). 1840 William Collings No father is shown for William, and birth registered in East Bolton (not L.B.) so may be of another family.  The William that married Esther Wallbank is another, son of Walter Collinge, a Collier. 1826 Mary Collinge 1836 Jane Collinge Left homeby 1851, but back with family as Jane Lomax in 1861. 1829 Rachel Collinge With family in 1851 1833 Amelia (Amy) Collinge Amy was with family in 1851 1834 Esther Collinge With family in 1851 1835 Sarah Collinge With family in 1851 1835 - 1878 Maria Collins 43 43 In 1851, Maria (16) was with her parents William and Maria at Mason Fold, Horwich. 1838 Eliza Collinge 1839 Amos Collinge 1825 Betty Collinge With family in 1851 1837 William Lomax 1802 - <1861 William Collinge 59 59 In 1861, William had died and Maria was head 1801 Maria Howarth 1840 - 1897 Esther Collins 57 57 In 1851, Esther (10) was with her parents William and Maria at Mason Fold, Horwich.

Esther was a cotton reeler, 20, unmarried in 1861, living with sister Mary Berry and her family.

Esther did not marry Thomas Jameson as this Esther was a minor, and daughter of James.  Esther Collins married William Rostron in 1869, and was still a cotton reeler in 1891.  From her marriage onwards, she spelt her maiden name COLLINS.

1843 - 1901 Edmund Collings 57 57 1871 Sarah Elizabeth Hamer 1876 Mary Ann Hamer 1878 Emma Hamer 1880 - 1952 Happy Collings Hamer 72 72 1883 Maria Hamer 1885 - 1972 Eva Hamer 87 87 Born in Bolton, Lancashire on 19 Mar 1885 to James Cunliffe Hamer and Happy Collings.

1889 Ethel Hamer 1878 Walter Smethurst 1812 - 1857 Sarah Williams 45 45 Sarah was likely the daughter of John and Mary from Great Bolton, Cotton Spinners.

This is Sarah Williams (not Crompton), who married John Collins or Collings at Deane in 1834.  Sarah was already pregnant when she married John in March 1834.  Ellen was born in August but died 9 months later.

In 1841, John and Sarah Collings (both 25) are at Halgh Street, L.B. with Mary (3) and William (1).
1825 Samuel Berry 1853 Mary Ellen Partington 1847 - 1923 Happy Collings 75 75 Happy was possibly named after Happy Mather, the sister of Samuel Mather. In 1871 James Cuncliffe Hamer and Happy Hamer were neighbours of Samuel and Ann Mather.

In 1851, Happy (Appy) Collinge (5) was at 70 Turton Street with parents John and Sarah (37 & 39) and 4 other siblings

Jane Heatham 1847 Sarah Vickers Parents were Benjamin and Mary 1877 - 1893 James Rostron 15 15 1834 William Hodson William, son of Luke, a Carter. 1856 Nancy Hodson 1861 Maria Hodson 1868 Elizabeth Hodson 1870 William Hodson 1863 Mary Ann Hodson 1834 - 1835 Ellen Collins 9m 9m 1836 - 1838 Harriet Collins 2 2 ~1836 Robert Partington 1870 - 1870 Maria Rostron 1847 Maria Collins 1860 Samuel Collins 1862 - 1864 Robert Berry 2 2 1853 Sarah Collins 1859 Joseph Collins 1863 George Collins 1857 John Collins 1851 - 1851 Elizabeth Ann Collings 1769 - 1843 Jane Mather 74 74 Jane was the daughter of Thomas and Betty, baptised at St Peter, Bolton in 1769.  Jane's father left "2 cottages in Darcy Lever, in possession of himself and Joseph Warburton, to daughter Jane Fohold (who has three children)".  "Fohold" appears to be an error.

In 1831, Jane was NOT at Old Acres.  However in 1805 (poor list) Richard Mather was an occupier (one of many) at Old Acres.  In the 1796 valuation, Richard Mather was  occupier at 46 Old Acres, Bradshaw Gate, West Side.

In 1841, Jane (70), with her assumed niece or granddaughter Alice (15), living at Old Acres, E Bolton.

Jane died in 1843, aged 74
