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 ? Mary (1858), Happy (1868) and Edmund (1870) all married at Bolton St John. All Girls Christened at Heywood, Lancashire. Possibly another family (William & Maria Howarth, both born in 1813) Esther, Maria and Sarah all on 1841 census Lives with: Younger sister Esther living with Mary and Berry family in 1861 Relative of: John and William Collings are possible Brothers.  If they are, then John's daughter Happy, born 1847 is named after John's niece (i.e. Samuel's daughter) Happy, born 1823 Lives with: Sarah Collongs lodging with sister Mary and family at 114 Spring Gardens, Bolton, Lancashire, England in 1851 Neighbor: James and Happy Hamer were neighbours of Samuel and Ann Mather in 1871.
Samuel's sister was Happy Mather (b.1823), so there is a "Happy" family tie-up?. Other: Mary and William were christened on the same day, although Mary was born a few years earlier.

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).

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)

19 Feb 1849, Samuel Mather, spinner of Little Bolton, son of Samuel married Ann Nightingale. James Brooks, Samuel's brother-in-law, was a witness.

In 1851, Samuel and Ann (23 & 21) were living at 48 Blackburn Road.  Ann Mather (37, Solomon's daughter) was a neighbour. Their first son John, born in 1849 had died an infant.

Between 1852-55 the family moved from Sharples to Eastern Bolton district between, then to Little Bolton by 1859.

In 1861, Samuel and Ann (34 & 31) were living at 12 Back Haigh Street with Alice (8), Samuel (6), and Margaret (2).  They had a house servant Mary Nightingale, Ann's niece.

In 1871, Samuel and Ann (43 & 41) were at 73 Blackbank Street with Alice, Samuel, Margaret and George (18, 15, 11 & 4).  James Cunliffe and Happy Hamer (22 & 24) were neighbours at 71.  Phineas and Happy Shittleworth, son Samuel (16) and Jessie Collins (grandson, aged 6) and Alice Mather (Boarder, Wid, 82) were neighbours at no. 67.

Samuel Johnson and Jane Bleakley and family were also neighbours in 1861 and 1871, so may be related.

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

In 1896, Samuel died and Ann three years later.  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).

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 1813 - 1852 John Berry 39 39 1856 Maria A Berry 1850 Elijah Berry 1848 Henry Berry 1845 - 1922 William Gaitor Berry 76 76 1825 Ann Taylor In 1851, Joseph and Ann (26 & 27) were at 7 Gas Street, Bolton with William (7) and Maria (4).
