In 1778, Thomas Mather, a potter from Prescot, and Elizabeth Garswood married at Farnworth.
~1755 Elizabeth Garswood 1801 - 1872 John Yates 71 71 John Yates was a Butcher and Farmer from Downham, near Preston, Lancashire. 1803 - 1866 Margaret Winwood 63 63 1833 - 1899 Ann Yates 66 66 James H Mather was a clogger in 1861 with wife "Martha", but Martha must have died as in 1881 he is a provision dealer and his wife is "Ann".  (James Mather, son of Isaac was also a Clogger in 1861).

By 1891 James and Ann had moved to Middle Hulton, now a retired grocer.  This explains why James and Ann are buried at Deane.
1865 - 1942 Ellen (Helen) Mather 77 77 Ellen's father was a Clogger.

In 1881 Ellen Mather, Dau, was at 66 Moor Lane, W Bolton, assistant shop keeper, aged 15.

In 1858, Martha Williamson married James H Mather.

Martha Mather, born Knutsford 1829, is on the 1861 census with husband James H Mather and son John W (age 1).

Martha may have died, as James later married Ann Yates. However, there appears to be no death record, so perhaps she left him.

In 1863, Son Henry's parents were Mather and BROOM, but they appear to be unmarried.

Another Henry Mather was living with his mother Martha in 1911. This is probably another Henry son of Henry and Martha from Salford. This Henry was 4y older than his wife.

In 1841, James Henry is missing, not with mother Jane at Drolysden, Manchester (so may not belong here, although father William is also missing).
