In 1851, Thomas (son, 52, unmarried) was a hand loom weaver, still with the family at 97 Kay Sterrt, Little Bolton.

In 1861, Thomas was not with his father and brother John, so had possibly died. However, the only matching death record in in 1879, so he may have married Ellen Walkden in 1857 or Jane Dobson in 1858 (both RO). He may have been boarding with John and Hannah Hilton (63, Thomas, Silk Hand Loom Weaver, born L.B. but recorded as a Hilton)

In 1871, Thomas was 73, Unmarried, and a boarder at 210 Pikes Lane, West Bolton, a "Cotton Weaver at Home"

Thomas of Western Bolton died in March 1879, aged 81.  He is buried at New Bury Churchyard (near Farnworth), South of Bolton.
1807 Sarah Mather No burial for Sarah Mather, and not with family on 1841 census, so married James Clough (in 1829), Thomas Westby (in 1831) or James Cottam (in 1837).

Sarah and Thomas Westby (Packer of L.B.) married in 1831 and had daughters Mary in 1832 and Jane in 1834 and William in 1836.  Sarah was 43 in 1851 - Perfect! and Thomas 48.

Sarah & James Cottam had a daughter Martha in 1837. Sarah wife of James Cottam died in 1845, aged 30, so it cant be her as she was born about 1815 (actually 1812).

1821 - ~1822 John Mather 1 1 John may have died an infant, as another John was baptised 22 June 1823, also at Manchester Cathedral. However, there are no death or burial records. Perhaps he was baptised twice! 1831 - 1881 Ellen Mather 50 50 In 1851 Ellen (Head, Unmarried, Dress Maker) was at 28 Jersey Street, just a few doors away from her mother and brother Thomas at No. 46.  She was recorded as being from Dublin (but that was also for her two lodgers).

1778 - 1864 Joseph (Joshua) Mather 86 86 WARNING: Parents are not confirmed.

We know Joseph and John were brothers because thay both had daughters named Betsy, and in 1881 the same informant, Joseph Allen, recorded both their deaths.

Joseph was born in Tyldsley or Tong in 1778 and baptised at Astley, St Stephen.

Joshua (and Jesus) are alternative early names for Joseph.  It appears then in 1805, he used the name Joshua, no Joseph to have is daughter Elizabeth baptised.  (The only UK Joshua and Mary marriage was in Derbyshire in 1789 and that Joshua was still there in 1841, aged 70).

In 1851 Joseph and Mary (both 73) were at 97 Kay Street, Little Bolton with sons Thomas (52) and John (50).

From 1861 Joseph's son John became a Hair Cutter and moved up the road with Joseph from 97 to 204 Kay St.  Joseph Mather was also recorded as a Barber in the trade directory.

Peter Hilton married Elizabeth Mather 6 Nov 1831 in Bolton.  It was just in time, as Elizabeth (aka Betty) gave birth 2 months later.  Their marriage may have been a double marriage as Sarah Mather married at the same church, same day.  The marriage records are adjacent. However, they are not sisters.

In Jan 1832 when Catherine was baptised, Peter was a Chair Maker in Little Bolton
1832 - 1908 Catherine Hilton 76 76 Catherine Hilton aged about 2 imigrated to USA (probably via Canada) with her parents.

17 July 1908, Catherine (Widowed, 78) died in Minnesota.  She was actually 76 years old.
1833 - 1833 Grace Hilton 1814 - 1816 Hannah Mather 1 1 1824 - 1856 John Smith Peck 32 32 1807 - 1865 Elizabeth Mather 58 58 Elizabeth from Lowton had an adult baptism at Winwick in 1820 (aged 12).  She had an infant sister Nancy (b.8-Dec-1819) baptised the same day.

6 Nov 1831, Elizabeth married Peter Hilton (the same day Sarah Mather married Thomas Welsby). This may have been a double marriage as Sarah Mather married the same day.  However, it is now believed thay were not sisters.  Census records show the Elizabeth Mather sister of Sarah was born 1805 in Little Bolton and married Edmund Heaton.

Jan 1832 "Betty" had her daughter Catherine baptised (less than two months after the marriage)

In 1850 and 1861, Elizabeth and Peter (and Elizabeth's mother Grace) were in Racine, Wisconsin, USA.
1800 - 1839 Edmund Heaton 39 39 5 Sep 1825, Edmund Heaton married Betsy Mather.

Edmund died in 1839 in Halliwell, aged 39
1805 - 1881 Elizabeth (Betsy) Mather 76 76 Elizabeth was baptised the daughter of Joshua and Mary Mather.  It seems probable the Joshua is Joseph.  This is supported by:
1) Joshua a possible alternate name for Joseph
2) Gap in births at 1805 for Elizabeth to fit
3) Double marriage of two daughters (Elizabeth and Sarah)
4) No marriage of Joshua and Mary (only Joseph)
5) No other Bolton baptisms with father Joshua Mather

Elizabeth was born about 1805 in Little Bolton.  It follows that it is this Elizabeth the daughter of Joshua and Mary Mather of Little Bolton, baptised 17 Feb 1805 that married Edmund Heaton.

Known as Betsy when married and for the birth of the first children, and then used the name Elizabeth from 1836 when Thomas and Sarah were born.

In 1860, Nancy Bullock was in Racine, Wisconsin, USA
1817 Ann Mather 1804 - 1866 James Wilson 62 62 10 Feb 1858 James Wilson (54) James Wilson, a commercial traveller and a widower from Liverpool, son of John Wilson, a Labourer married Elizabeth Mather (44, father John Mather, Mechanic) at Trinity Church Southport by Licence.
