James also married an Alice Lord.  
Both brothers were husbandman. Lives with: Ann was 55 in 1841, living with James and Martha Mather by Independant means at Radcliffe. She was probably Martha's mother. Relative of: Probably related, as Zacharias in a reoccuring family name Funding of: John and his family stayed with his father in 1871, and 1881.  He took over the farm after his father died Relative of: Probably Grandson, ad both from West Breightmet Hill Know each other: Two Rachel's from Radcliffe, born 1778 Neighbor: Miles Mather of Mount Pleascent and Peter Mather of Hollins in Pilkington both had properties at Mount Sion New Road, Radcliffe Relative of: Possible brothers.  John's daughter Sarah and Samuel's son Jeremy were at Roscoe fold, Breightmet.
Common parents probably Elizabeth and William, with baps at Manchester Cathederal. Neighbor: In 1841, Richard was a farmer in Radcliffe and nieghbour of Samuel and Alice Lord (both 25). It was a Samuel Lord who was witness to Samuel's marriage to Betty Lord Lives with: In 1841, Sarah Lansdale was with her parents Samuel and Betty Mather at Smith's Fold, Elton Lives with: In 1851, James and Sarah Greenhalgh (28 & 26) were living with Samuel Mather.  Sarah was his Grandaughter. Named After: Jeremiah Mather had a son Jeremiah, quite an uncommon name!
Jeremiah jnr, may have gone by the name Joseph (to avoid confusion) : Possible brothers Neighbor: In 1841, Peter (Organist) and Samuel (Shoemaker) are neighbours in Church Street, Radcliffe.  James who was there in 1836 is gone. Relative of: Samuel and William were brothers.  Samuel had his Niece Sarah living with him in 1861. Lives with: In 1861, Sara was living with her uncle Samuel Representative of: In 1833, William Lonsdale was witness to James & Fanny's marriage Neighbor: James (a crofter) and Betty Lomax (nee Mather) lived at the Ashes.

Fanny, daughter of Janes and Fanny (nee Nuttall)
Lydia Mather nee Greenhalgh (1790-1824) and her son James (1824-1825)
William Mather (1834-1835), son of John Mather (dyer) & Hannah (nee Dearden) of Breightmet, aged 9 months Relative of: Brothers, named in James Mather's Will 1802 - 1864 Jacob Mather 62 62 In 1798 Jacob Mather paid rent at Breightmet.  This may have been his father.

Jacob was born about 1802 in Bolton, possibly the son of Jacob. There is no baptism for Jacob, and likewise Jacob Snr was widowed, and also no first marriage or baptism records.

In 1841, Jacob was 35, a cotton washer at Crook Street, E Bolton with Sarah (30) and John (15).  Also present were William and Alice Taylor (both 25), possibly related. Neighbours were John and Mary Buckley (65 & 60), the Oil Sheet Maker.

In 1843, Jacob's wife Sarah died in 1843, so in 1851 he was a widower (49), living in lodgings at 22 Moor Lane, Western Bolton.

By 1861, Jacob (58, born Bolton) was a Cotton Hand, working and lodging at Mayfield Terrace, Mayfield, Staffordshire with Joseph Dagnall (23 a cotton hand) and wife Betsey (23, born Bolton), not Jacob's daughter, as  Joseph Dagnall married Elizabeth Pollitt Q1/1859 in Ashborne.

There are so few records for Jacob, it seem likely he went by another name, probably James, a common alternative.
1903 - 1975 Ernest Mather 72 72 In 1911 Ernest was 7, an only child, at Tonge Moor, Bolton with his parents John (a Cost Clerk) and Eliza.  Enrest followed in his fathers footsteps, also becoming a clerk.

In 1939, Ernest and wife Eliza were living at 21 Cartmel Crescent, Bolton with two others (probably their two children).

1714 John Mather 1723 - 1760 Jane Holt 37 37 Jane's parents were Ralph and Mary Holt from Turton 1756 - 1760 Thomas Mather 4 4 1748 Samuel Mather 23-Jul-1763 (Ref.QSP/1878/24): Bolton le Moors. Certificate of eligibility of Samuel Mather, prisoner, to receive the county allowance (record held at Lancashire Archives). Is this the same Samuel Mather?  Well quite possibly, as no Samuel Mather was married in Bolton in the following years. 1759 Mary Mather Mary probably married Samuel Chadwick (1780, weaver) or Jno Boyd (1785), both at St. Peters 1751 - 1839 Margaret Mather 88 88 1820 - 1847 Benjamin Mather 27 27 Benjamin was a House Painter in Little Bolton in 1841.  He died in 1847.  Perhaps he fell of his ladder!

Baptism record shows Benjamins was the twin brother of Mary, mother is Mary Mather, a spinster.  He could be one of our family, as in Little Bolton and buried Walmsley.  However, a baptism at Radcliffe suggests otherwise!  We need to see his grave!

Benjamin does not appear to have married, at least not in Lancashire (unless to Mary Minks in Liverpool which is unlikely).
1820 Mary Mather Mary and Benjamin were twins of Mother Mary Mather, a spinster.
Mary Hugganson 1778 - 1855 John Mather 77 77 WARNING: There is also a John and Ann Greenwood of Great Bolton whjo married in 1781 and had over 10 children.

Probably brother of James of Darcy Lever (see Alice's baptism) and/or Samuel, a farmer of Radcliffe.

In 1823, Thomas, John's father, left one cottage in King Street, Great Bolton, to son John Mather.

In 1841, John was in Brieghtmet, 60, a Farmer.  There was no occupation described on the children's baptisms.

In 1851, John Mather (73, a retired farmer from Breightment) was living with his daughter Ellen (40) and son-in-law (shown as "Step-father") Joseph Phethean (48).

John's daughter Sarah was at Roscoe Fold, Breightmet, so John is probably related to Jeremy Mather.
~1680 - 1717 Abraham Mather 37 37 Abraham and Alice both left wills, the only ones indexed for Little Bolton (although others for Turton). ~1680 - 1718 Ales (Alice) Rothwell 38 38 Alice, recorded as "Ales" on Marriage Index.

After Abraham died, yoy may expect Ales (or Alice) to remarry.  However, there are no marriages, but a death of Alice Mather widow instead.  No age gived, but she was still young.
1706 Elizabeth Mather 1706 Mary Mather 1711 James Mather 1711 Richard Mather ~1759 Samuel Chadwick 1783 John Chadwick 1788 Esther Chadwick ~1751 James Foster 1745 Ann Mather 1753 - 1763 James Mather 10 10 1704 - 1783 Zacharias Mather 79 79 Zacharias or Zacchariah Mather. 

His father was Richard, a collier, and a close relative may also have been a Zachariah Mather (buried 23 May 1665 at St Peter, Bolton).  There's also a Zacharias Mather married to Anna Elizabeth with daughter Anna Regina born 26 July 1700 in Prussia, so there may be a German origin.

Zachariah Mather of of Birkenshaw in Turton, husbandman died and left a Will in 1665.
1796 - 1867 Isaac Mather 71 71 Isaac born 1796 was a bastard son of Mary Mather of Little Bolton.  No farther is given, although Mary Mather, if the same person, married Henry Warburton by licence in April 1801. 

He may have had a brother Jacob.  Also a posible brother of Alice Mather, wife of Samuel (both from Turton).

A Weaver in 1816 when married, and 1817 - >1822

In 1841, Isaac Mather (45) was a Beer Seller with his second wife Jane (50) at the Old White Horse, Wallbach, Edgworth.  His children Joseph, Alice, Peter, Jacob, Jane, and Sarah were with him.

The Old White Horse was taken over by Annis Bromily, an unmarried woman, aged 66 in 1851.  Isaac was a neighbour, but now farming 28 acres (with his family).

In 1844 Isaac was an Out Worker when daughter Alice of Edgworth Moor married William Crowshaw

Isaac Mather continued to be a Beer Seller in Edgworth, and is listed in the 1853 and 1855 trade directories.

In 1861, Isaac (65) was a widower, lodging with his daughter Margaret Garside and son Joseph at Doffer Fold (next to Buckley Fold), Radcliffe.

In 1863, old Isaac may have married Mary Haddock at Bury RO (TBC).

Isaac died in 1867 and his death was registered at Bury.
~1736 - 1799 Abraham Mather 63 63 WARNING: Parent are not confirmed.

Abraham was probably brother of John, Richard and Peter, all whom used the same Bank Street Unitarian chapel.

Abraham Mather, a Chapman (i.e. a peddler or hawker of goods such as wool and cotton) of Bolton and Elizabeth Saxton were married by licence.  Both were able to sign their names.

After Abraham's wife Elizabeth died in 1768 he was left with his young child Richard to look after, but Richard died soon after.  Abraham then re-married Alice Rothwell in 1770.  His signature on Alices marriage record matches that of his previous marriage.
1767 - 1837 Jeremiah (Joseph) Mather 69 69 Jeremiah was a weaver when he married Ann in 1794

In 1793 and 1813, both his marriages were at St. Peter, Bolton. His March 1813 marriage was only 2 months after his first wife died.

The 1801 Breightmet Census records a population of 734 in 137 inhabited houses, two of which were occupied by Mather families.  Jacob Mather had 5 and Joseph 6.  There was no Jeremiah in Breightmet (or Bolton), no baptism with Jeremiah (or Jeremy) as a father, so therefore it seems likely Jeremiah was known as Joseph.

In 1834, Jeremiah was Provision dealer in Brown Street, Little Bolton. John and Elizabeth and family were in Brown St in 1841, so could be related. Also, Jeremiah a Shoe Maker & Margaret Rockcliffe (55 & 40) where there in 1841.

In 1837 Jeremiah Mather of Little Bolton died, as was buried at Ainsworth.
1770 - 1770 Richard Mather 3m 3m 1644 - 1724 Joseph Mather 80 80 Joseph Mather, the first representative of the family in Pennsylvalia, eas a weaver by trade and came, at the age of eighteen, with Phineas Pemberton, James Harrison and others from Bolton, Lancashire, England.  They sailed from Liverpool in the ship "Submission", James Settle, Master, Seventh month 15th, 1682, and arrived at Choptank, Maryland, ninth month 2d, 1682 ... ~1620 - 1696 Richard Mather 76 76 <unknown> Richard Mather Jnr Samuel Mather D. 1730 Elizabeth Russell ~1560 - 1627 Gabriell Mather 67 67 D. >1627 Elizabeth 1585 Raphell Mather Raph [Ralph] Mather of Ratliffe married Alis Bampfron of Bury 25 Sep 1612.  May be another as this Ralph was probably born about 1600. ~1587 - 1665 Zacherie Mather 78 78 1580 James Mather James was third names in the will, so may be the third oldest.  However baptism records suggest he is the oldest. ~1610 Abraham Mather Abraham and his mother were executors of his fathers will. He must have been of full age, so born 1610 or earlier. ~1614 Gabriell Mather The two youngest, Gabrielle and Dorothie where children when their father died, as he left 20 shillings each for their education. ~1617 Dorothie Mather The two youngest, Gabrielle and Dorothie where children when their father died, as he left 20 shillings each for their education. Hester Tong ~1580 Sara Walker ~1540 - 1597 Ralph Mather 57 57 <unknown> ~1570 - 1613 Abraham (Habrham) Mather 43 43 Abraham named his brothers Reginald and Samuel in his will.  He appears not to have any children of his own.  He also named a nephew Abraham. D. 1638 Samuel Mather Brother Abraham left to Samuel Mather his two sons Samuell & Christopher Mather 6s 8d apeice.
Reginald (Reynold) Mather Reynold had a daughter Sarah mentioned in brother Samuel's will of 1638: "To Sarah my brother Renald's daughter 3s 4d." Sarah Mather Jane ~1540 - 1596 James Mather 56 56 ~1540 - ~1610 Ellyn Tyldesley 70 70 ~1580 Thomas Mather 1567 Elizabeth Mather ~1575 Mary Mather ~1577 Ann Mather ~1570 Raphe Mather Raphe was mentioned in his fathers will as the oldest son. D. >1638 Anne Yate Ann had three surviving children in 1638.  Samuel's will included: "to James Yate, Elizabeth Yate & Richard Yate my wife's children 3s 4d apeece". Abraham Mather Abraham was executor of his father's will. Christopher Mather D. <1636 Dorothy Mather 1725 - 1809 James Mather 84 84 1724 - 1801 Mary Pendlebury 77 77 1752 - 1820 Miles Mather 68 68 Miles is described as a bachelor on the probate (see attached).  He is buried in his parents grave (see headstone) 1761 - 1829 John Mather 68 68 Son Samuels second marriage of 1850 shows his father John was a Boot and Shoe Manufacturer 1750 - 1761 Ann Mather 11 11 1753 - 1753 Betty Mather 1755 - 1836 Martha Mather 81 81 Ann, Betty, Thomas and Jenny all died young or as infants.  Martha is not buried with them, so probably survived and married.  Most likely she married James Allen in 1776 1766 - 1835 James Mather 69 69 Name spelt James Madther on Thomas, James and Mary's baptisms.  A strange error if one of the senior church wardens at St. Marys was a James Mather!

12 Aug 1792, James Mather (X) Cottom Manufacturer  married Mary Melling, both of Radcliffe Parish.

In 1836, another James Mather was a senior Church Warden at Radcliffe, and presented a special tea service to Rev. Samuel Johnson MA as the reverend was leaving them (see news article).  Note: This James died the previous year.
1768 - 1829 Sally Mather 61 61 1777 - 1851 James Mather 74 74 Fuller on 1804 marriage record.

James Mather (a fuller) and Mary (nee Evans), both 65 on the 1841 census, are at Pigslee Bridge, Walmersley, Bury living with their son Richard Mather (aged 30) and his 4 children.

James (74) and Mary (75) are at Flint Street, North Bury (so probably still in Walmersley) in 1851.
1766 - 1846 Robert Madther 80 80 Robert shown as a Fuller on Patient's baptism of 1790.  His father (also Robert) was also a Fullter.

WARNING: There is another Robert Mather of Withnell of same age who married Peggy Duerden at Leyland.

25 Dec 1846 Robert Mather of Pigslee, Walmersley was buried at Bury.
~1760 - 1807 Ellen Holme 47 47 <unknown> 1741 - 1741 Jeremiah Mather Abraham Mather was witness at Jeremiah's marriage of 1758.  One of the possible baptisms is on 30 Mar 1735 for "Jerem Mathers" of Reading, son of Abraham, so the family may have moved North from Reading. However its more likely that Jeremiah was more local, but not the son of James Mather (a Taylor) and Mary, baptised 3 July 1741 at Radcliff and buried the next day. 1731 - 1806 Hannah Seddon 75 75 ~1565 - >1628 Hugh Mather 63 63 Hugh Mather was named as brother in Janes' Will ~1565 <unknown> ~1584 - <1628 Richard Mather 44 44 Richard was first married to Katherine (recorded in a 1618 article of agreement between him and James Starkye of Pennington).  By 1628 (when Hugh Mather had died), Richard had deceased and his widow was Alice Mather. ~1585 Alice Mather 1602 Hugh Mather 1599 James Mather 1604 Thomas Mather 1598 John Mather 1609 - ~1611 Adam Mather 2 2 1601 Anne Mather 1801 - 1877 Miles Mather 75 75 Son of James and Mary

In 1833 Miles was a Shopkeeper

In 1841, Miles (35) was a labourer at Mount Pleasant, Radcliffe with John (12), Mary (10) and Isobella (8)
1798 Peter Mather WARNING: Other siblings were shop keepers in Radcliffe, so it seems odd Peter is a labourer in Pilkington, but he was a freemason!

25 Feb 1820, Peter Mather (22), a weaver, was initiated as a freemason at the Lodge of Faith, Piklington.

In 1836, brothers James and Peter Mather (and cousin Samuel Mather) had freehold houses and spring at Church Street, Radcliffe.

In 1841, Peter, a labourer, and Sally (40 & 30) were at Pilkington with James (15), Mary (15), Maria (10), Ann (9), Squire (6) and Elizabeth (3)
1804 - 1810 Mary Madther 6 6 1756 Richard Madther This is Richard MADTHER.  Another Richard MATHER married Peggy Kirkman 28 May 1776 at Radcliffe ~1755 Betty Siddal 1785 Jesse Madther 1789 Alice Madther 1792 Samuel Mather Only Samuel baptised at Radcliffe, son of Richard and Mary.  This baptism seems to be an error, and "Mary" should be Betty.  There are no Richard and Mary marriages (except Mary Rigby in 1785 which is another family).  There is also a gap in the births between the two Hardys, and Richard is a weaver from Radcliffe. ~1764 - >1822 Alice Mather 58 58 Alice was already an Alice Mather before she married John. 1790 - 1852 James Madther 61 61 James born 17 Oct 1790 was the son of John Mather (or Madther) of Radcliffe, a cordwainer and Alice his wife.

In 1836, James was at Water Lane, Radcliffe

In 1841, James (48), a shoe maker was with his sons John (21, designer) and William (13) at Lion Street, Radcliffe.

In 1851 James (60, cordwainer) was with his son William (27, engineer) at Radcliffe
1792 - 1851 Peter Madther 59 59 In 1841, Peter (48) was an Organist at Church Street, Radcliffe.  Next door was Samuel Mather a Shoe Maker. 1795 Richard Madther 1794 - 1795 Martha Madther 11m 11m 1782 North Madther 1787 Haide Madther 1796 Hardy Madther 1778 Martin Madther Martin MATHER married Sarah Kirkman 30 Sep 1799 at Middleton, and had a son North Mather in Feb 1800. ~1790 - 1790 Hardy Madther ~1778 Sarah Kirkman 1803 Jessey Mather 1800 - 1854 North Mather 54 54 28 Jun 1824, North Mather married Betty Needham at Oldham.

North was with his family (wife Betty Needham of Oldham) in 1841 in Oldham
~1738 Robert Madther Robert Madther or Mather ~1738 Betty (Elizabeth) Ripson 1761 Sally Mather 1764 - 1810 Frances Madther 46 46 In 1801, Farncis's daughter died was is buried at Walmersley. Brolthers Rolbert and John also had saughters buried here.
