Both families had their children baptised at Edgworth Independant. Lives with: Hannah was living with her daughter in 1911 Neighbor: Charles and his wife Ann were neighbours of his Mother at Egerton in 1871 Representative of: In 1874, when John married Elizabeth, his oldest sibling, Alice Mather (as head of family after parents had died) was witness.
However in 1874, Alice was married Relative of Lives with: In 1891, after Mary's husbad had died, Mary Lever was back living with her mother Jane Mather at 17 Oliver Row Lives with: In 1901, Peter Waddicor was boarding with Charles and Maria.  They were probably half-brothers Named After Lives with: In 1871, Mary Haslam (74) was living with her son-in-law Andrew Waddicor and family at Quarlton. Representative of: In 1855, Richard Mather was witness to Sarah's marriage Relative of: Margaret Ann is the daughter of Susannah Relative of: Joseph is the son of Susannah of Edgworth Representative of: In 1846, Charles was witness to his sister Ann's marriage to John Allen Relative of: Assumed son of Mary Ann (as Elizabeth was too young) 1813 - 1895 Jane Welsley 82 82 John (an overlooker), Jane and family were at Barlow St, Little Bolton in 1841 and 1851.

In 1861, John and Jane are at 24 Barlow Street with daughters Sarah (20) and Esther (11), and grandchildren Jane (11) and John (7)

In 1871 John was at 22 Base St, Little Bolton (75) with Wife Jane (63) and Grandson John (17).

Jane lived in Little Bolton to the ripe old age of 80.
1839 Thomas Mather Thomas was with parents John (an overlooker), Jane and family were at Barlow St, Little Bolton in 1841 and 1851 1842 Sarah Mather 1844 - 1845 Robert Mather 6m 6m 1847 Nancy Mather Oct 1867, Another Nancy Mather daughter of Hannah married James Bowen at Bolton, St George 1829 - 1851 William Crosland Mather 22 22 John (an overlooker), Jane and family were at Barlow Street, Little Bolton in 1841 and 1851.

In 1841, James (14) and Brother William (12) were with parents John and Jane.  James and William are not their sons they only just married in Oct 1829, and Jane is too young to have them.

In 1851, William Mather (21) is a servant and Druggist in E Bolton for Samuel Chadwich, a doctor of medicine. Betty Mather, another servant (29) is probably unrelated as from Blackrod.

1827 - 1875 James Mather 48 48 James and William were baptised in Bolton, the sons of William Mather and Martha (Bleakley).  They came from a prosporus background and were professional people.  William was an Attorney of Law, who died in 1835.  His wife Martha remarried in 1838, so the boys probably went into service.  James became a druggist.

In 1841, James and William (14 & 12) were not with their parents.  Instead, they were with John (an overlooker), Jane and family were at Barlow Street, Little Bolton whom had just married in Oct 1829 (so too young to be their parents).  They may be adopted by John, a relative.

In 1851, James is not with the family and may may have married Mary Stott at Deane in 1851, but there are no possible Bolton marriages.
1761 - 1828 Alice Entwistle 67 67 Alice's parents were Thomas and Alice (bap. 1770, Cockey Moore) or William and Susan (bap 1762, Haslingden)

Alice Mather of Bradshaw died April 1828, aged 67.  Either the age has been transcribed incorrectly, or this is not the dasughter of Thomas and Alice so more likely William and Susan.
1788 - 1792 John Mather 4 4 1790 - 1792 Ann Mather 2 2 1792 - 1819 Charles Mather 27 27 Charles Mather does not appear to have married. His burial record describes him as son of Thomas and Alice (no wife referenced). 1796 - 1873 Edward Mather 77 77 The only marriage I can find is in Northumberland.  Seems unlikely, but its all I have!

Edward and Ann had their children baptised at Edgworth Independant.  Edward was a washer (probably in the print industry like his father).

In 1821, son James died aged 2 and buried at Turton. However, their abode was Tottington.

In 1841, Edward and Ann (40 & 45) were at Bottoms, Edgworth (Russsa Bottoms) with George (15), Charles (15), Alice (15) Susannah (13) and Nancy (10)

In 1851, Edward  and Ann (55 & 61) were at Russia Bottoms, Edgworth with Charles (28), Susannah (22), Nancy (17) and g-daughter Mally (5).  Edward's married daugfhter Alice Allen was also living there.
1800 - 1811 James Mather 11 11 1805 - 1861 Thomas Mather 56 56 Thomas cut it fine getting married 6 April 1828.  Thier first baby Alice was born 19 May, the following month.

From 1828, Thomas lived at Turton Bottoms.  Records show Alice and Ann were born there).

In 1841, Thomas (30), a block printer like his father and Hannah (also 30) were at Bottoms, Edgworth.  They had their children baptised at Edgworth Independent.  They had 4 surviving children Alice, Ann, Amos and Jane (13, 9, 6, 3).

In 1851 Thomas & Hannah (both 42) where at the Old Globe Buildings, Turton.  Thomas, born Qualerton was a Gas Maker. They had 8 children: Alice, Ann, Amos, Jane and Thomas, Charles, John, Hannah (22, 18, 16, 12, 10, 6, 3, 9mo).

Thomas died Q1/1861, before the census, aged 52
1806 - 1871 Hannah (Ann) Kirkham 65 65 In 1851, Hannah (wife) and same age as Thomas.  Not Hannah Whitehead, as they were from Manchester town.  Probably Ann or Anna, as many of the baptism records show her as Ann

In 1861 Hannah (52, Head) at Old School, Turton with 5 children and 4 grandchildren.

In 1871, Hannah Mather (66, Head) is with Jane (30, Dau), John (22, Son), and grandchildren Alice (16) and Thomas (8). She is Married but was a Widow in 1861

In 1891, Hannah and family are neighbours of George and Ann Mather.
1789 - 1870 Ann Brown 81 81 1825 Alice Mather 5 July 1846, John "Alen", illegitimate of Edgworth married Alice Mather, daughter of Edward Mather, a dyer.
.
1827 - 1827 Susannah Mather 1829 - >1911 Susannah Mather 82 82 Susannah Mather of Edgworth, spinner, had a son Joseph baptised 9 April 1854 at Turton.  She would have been about 25.  This Susanah lived with her parents into her fourties., unmarried, although seems to have had two children, Joseph and Margaret Ann (born 1857).

In 1911 Susannah Mather (83) "Mother" and "Single" is living with her son Joseph (57) and extended family at Edgworth.
1832 Nancy Mather 1828 - 1915 Alice Mather 86 86 Mother "Ann"

Alice was still unmarried in 1861, living with mother Hannah and all surviving siblings, the oldest Alice aged 32.  However, there were 4 grandchildren present (oldest born 1852) that must be Alice or Ann's.

After her parents died, Alice Mather became head of the family, and as such was witness to youngest brother John's marriage of 1874

In 1871, Alice (43) was married to Ralph Entwistle (37) and had 4 of his children with them as well as Annie (1) and Walter (3mo) of her own.  Sarah (15) is probably also hers as was not with Ralph in 1861.

In 1881, Alice (52, born Turton Bottoms) and Ralph (47) were at 17 Barber Street, Sharples with her extended family.

In 1911, Alice (82) was with her children Annie and Walther (41 and 40) and Also "daughter" Sarah Mather (55) and her daughter Sarah Alice (31).

Alice died in 1915, aged 86
1832 Ann Mather Ann may have had a son Joseph (aged 3 in 1861).  In 1871 Joseph was 15 and Ann is now married to George Warbutton.  Ann and George married in 1863 at Bolton RO. 1830 - ~1840 John Mather 10 10 1835 - 1884 Amos Mather 48 48 NOTE:  There is another Amos Mather, born Turton, Manager Bleaching, who was married to Ann Briggs, both 53 in 1891 living at 343 Blackburn Road..

This is first known occurance of an Amos Mather!  Another Amos, son of William and Peggy Mather, born 1842 (who also had Zephaniah) married Margaret Howarth at Mellor in 1870. 

Amos died 1884 and is shown as deceased on all of his childrens marriages.

In 1891, Amos Mather's family are neighbours of George and Ann Mather.  Are they related?
1824 Charles Mather In 1846, Charles was witness to his sister Ann's marriage to John Allen

In 1861, Charles married Betty Crompton (8 years younger) in 1861 were visiting his parents in Edgworth.

Joseph (7) and Margaret Ann (2) were with them in 1861, but are probably Georges children i.e. nephew and neice.

Charles and Betty had Henry in 1863, John in 1866 and 4 more.

By 1881, the family were at 202 Waterloo St, Little Bolton, and Charles was a fireman.
1819 - 1821 James Mather 2 2 James, the first son was born will the family were at Quarlton.  This confirms the correct family, as Edward's father was a Printer in Quarlton.

James, son of Edward and Ann of Tottington, 2 years, was buried March 2 1821 at Turton St Ann.
1846 Amelia (Mally) Mather Mally born illieitimate, Q1/1846 was aged 5 in 1851

Amelia (Mally) was an Adopted granddaughter of Edward and Ann.  In 1861, she was described as daughter, aged 15.

Hhe had a daughter Catherine (aged 16 in 1891).

On 23 sep 1860, Mary married Edmund Lever. Edmund died in 1885.

In 1891, after Mary's husbad Edmund had died, Mary Lever was back living with her mother Jane Mather at 17 Oliver Row
1835 - 1902 John Mather 67 67 John was with parents John (an overlooker), Jane and family were at Barlow St, Little Bolton in 1841 and 1851 1850 Jane Mather The "twins", Esther and Jane age 1 in 1851 survived infancy as both were alive aged 11 with their parents in 1861. However, there is no birth registration for such twins. Esther is registered in 1849, and Jane appears to be illegitimate, registered in 1850.

In 1861, Jane is shown to be a granddaughter, aged 11
1803 - 1873 Richard Mather 70 70 2 Jan 1826, Richard Mather and Mary married the same day as William Mather & Betty Fairview. A double marriage!  Also, Joseph Mather married Sarah Rosthorn later the same year.

Dyer in 1826 (when John baptised), a blue dyer in 1841, a reel dyer (of cotton) in 1851, labourer at the Calico print works in 1861 and 1871.

Another Richard and Mary family had Hannah (in 1826) and Ellen (b. 1828). This Richard was a Fuller.

In 1841, Richard and Mary (both 35) were at Pilton Fold, Edgworth with John, Alice, Sarah, Richard and Mary (15,15,13,5 & 2)
1802 - 1882 Mary Rostron 80 80 1826 John Mather 1831 - >1881 Alice Mather 50 50 1835 - 1902 Richard Mather 66 66 Richard Mather married Betty Booth 15 Dec 1861.  His witness was Amos Mather but which Amos?  Richard didnt have a brother Amos. 1838 Mary Mather 1841 Martha Mather Martha, unmarried, was with both parents in 1871 (so not married to Henry)

In 1871, Martha (unmarried, 26, born Quarlton) and living with parents at Pelton Fold had Richard (8) and Sarah Jane (5).

In 1881, Martha (36, born Quarlton) was Head at Turton Bottoms. She was unmarried, a Rag Picker at the Paper Mill, but had three children, Richard, Elizabeth Ellen and George (17, 3, & 9 mo). She should be 40, so could be wrong Martha
1831 - 1891 Sarah Mather 60 60 13 in 1841

In 1871, Andrew and Sarah (54 & 40) were at Hollins Cottage, Quarlton with Charles (16), Peter (14) and George (2). Also present was Mary Haslam (W, 74, Mother-in-law, Housekeeper).

In 1891, Sarah (59) was at 333 Bury Road, Quarlton with sons Peter (37) and George (22).
1794 - 1874 John Mather 79 79 John was quite an important person, being an overlooker at the Looms.

In 1841 John (40, Overlooker, looms) & Jane (30) were with family James (14), William (12), Mary (10), John (7), Thomas (2) at Barlow Street, Little Bolton.

In 1851, John and Jane (52 & 39)  are still at 12 Barlow Street, Little Bolton with 7 children.

In 1861, John and Jane are at 24 Barlow Street with daughters Sarah (20) and Esther (11), and grandchildren Jane (11) and John (7)

In 1871 John was at 22 Base St, Little Bolton (75) with Wife Jane (63) and Grandson John (17).

We can be sure he was from Edgworth, born about 1794-1798, as census records vary.  Possibly John born 1794 (if 1861 census is correct), so likely the son of Thomas a Calco Printer and Alice from Quarlton (0.5km south of Edgworth). The son of a printer becoming an overlooker at the looms is quite likely, but by no means certain.
1838 - 1914 Jane Mather 75 75 In 1871, Jane (30, Dau, Unmarried) was a cotton operative living with her mother Hannah (66), brother John (21) and two children (possibly hers).

In 1891, Jane (50) is Head and "Wid" at 7 Warburton Fold, Turton

Dont confuse with Jane Mather nee Kay, wife of Amos, who was born Entwistle in 1836.
1841 - 1864 Thomas Mather 22 22 Thomas was 10 in 1851 and 19 in 1861 but missing after that. Thomas died in 1864, aged 22

Before he died in April, Thomas may have married.  There are 3 Bolton marriages for a Thomas Mather in 1864, but is unlikely even if he did marry, he had any children.
1844 - 1932 Charles Mather 88 88 22 May 1869, Charles Mather, Stripper & Grinder, son of Thomas Mather a Gas Maker, married Ann Dewhust, Daughter of William, a Quarryman  Married 41 years in 1911 and all births show Ann's maiden name as Dewhurst.

Thomas and Charles had left home by 1871.  Charles (27) was married to Ann (23), and had a baby daughter Mary A (1) in Egerton.

In 1901, Charles and Ann (both 55) were at Farnworth with Mary A (30), Elizabeth (28), Henry (25), Edmund (19), Robert (16) and Samuel Finner, a boarer.

In 1911, Charles (65, Wid) at 34 Rishton, Great Lever with Mary Ann (40), Margaret Elizabeth (38) and William Henry (35, married). Charles had 5 children (all alive)

Charles probably retired to Blackpol where he died in 1932, aged 88 (or earlier in Bolton)
1850 - 1932 Elizabeth Naylor 82 82 Elizabeth's father was John Naylor. a spinner. Census records show she was born in Over Darwen. The 1871 census shows her parents were John from Preston and Mary from Wigan. If this is right, then she was born 2 May 1850 and baptised 15 May 1850 at Blackburn.

In 1874, Elizabeth married John Mather. Her witness was James Naylor (her closest brother, b 1854).

In 1881, John and Elizth (29 & 28) were living at 13 Cox Green Road with their son Arthur (2).

In 1901, John and Elizabeth (52 & 50) and their family were at 25 Hough Lane, Eagley (Turton).

In 1911, John and Elizabeth (62 & 59), son James (21)  and her married daughter Annie were living at 8 Myrrh Street, Little Bolton.

Elizabeth probably died in Little Bolton in 1919 (aged 65), or 1932 (aged 81).
1863 Charles Mather Charles married Nancy Thomasson on 13 Aug 1891. 1865 Mary Jane Mather Mary J, aged 6 in 1871 and Jane in 16 in 1881, so probably known most commonly as Jane.

Mary James Mather married George Entwistle on 5 May 1888 at Walmsley
1868 Hannah (Anne) Mather Anne, aged 3 in 1871, but later known as Hannah (13 in 1881).

Hannah married Charles Corless 12 June 1897 at Walmslet Christ Church
1871 Margaret (Maggie) Mather 1874 Thomas Mather Thomas married Elizabeth Baxendale (RO).  They had been married 8 years in 1911, with two children, Phyllis and Alice.

Elizabeth may have been a widow, previously married to Thomas Baxendale from Chorley (TBC).
1877 Alice Mather Alice married Joseph Waddicar at Walmsley Christ Church on 3 Dec 1896, and they had one daughter Annie, aged 14 in 1911.

Hannah Mather, Alice's mother was living with them in 1911.
1879 Sarah Mather Sarah married George Crowther from Edgworth, 4 Feb 1882 at Walmsley Christ Church. 1882 Amos Mather 1884 Elizabeth Mather Elizabeth never knew her father, who died around the same time she was born.

Elizabeth married William Handel Garbelt at Walmsley Christ Church 12 Aug 1908
1766 - 1842 Thomas Mather 76 76 The Thomas, son of Joshua and Margaret is another from Walton-le-Dale.  That Thomas married Jenny Rigby.

Possibly brother of Robert Mather, b.about 1766 who had a son Lambert Mather. 

There seems to be no 1841 Turton census record for Thomas, yet he died in 1842 and is buried at St. Anne's. Perhpas he was the 70y old Shoe Maker, retired at Walton-le-Dale yet burial says of Edgworth

1838 Betty Crompton 1865 George Entwistle 1866 Nancy Tomlinson Nancy was the daughter of John Tomlinson, a farmer from Walmsley 1838 - 1909 Betty Booth 71 71 1862 William Mather In 1902, William was a Mill Manager (when his father died) 1865 Richard Mather In 1902, Richard was a Teal Dealer (when his father died) 1868 - 1897 Mary Ellen Mather 29 29 In 1896, Mary Ellen Mather married John William FISH

We can tell from the burial record, Mary Ellen Fish died 1897, aged 29 and is buried with her parents.
1870 John Mather 1871 - 1955 Lambert Booth Mather 83 83 Lambert Booth married Edna.  When he died in 1955 he had an estate worth ┬ú7,339. 1875 John Mather 1833 - 1838 Martha Mather 5 5 1821 George Mather 1883 - 1920 Ernest Mather 36 36 In 1883 there are 4 Ernest Mather births (Lancashire BMD) and the one birth in Turton fits Little Bolton where Ernest married and had his family.  Ernest is 1 of 8 birth records for MATHER and NAYLOR, all from Turton (1875-90).

In 1907, Ernest Mather (a minder) of 62 Rawsthorne Street, son of John (a frame tenter) and Marry Ann were at 4 Acton Street when son Ernest was baptised.

Ernest and Mary Ann Sinker married in 1907.  Ernest's father was John, a Frame Tenmter. Ernest was from 62 Rawsthorn Street (near All Souls).  He had moved to 10 Myrrh Street (a 5 min walk) by the time Alice was baptised in 1911.

On 3 July 1913 Ernest and Mary Ann had twins Herbert and Joseph.  They were still at 10 Myrrh Street and Ernest was a Side Piecer.

In 1911, Ernest and Mary Ann (28 & 24) had been married 4 years and had one child that died. They were living at 10 Myrrh Street, Little Bolton.

In 1920, Ernest died in Halliwell, aged 36
1887 Mary Ann Sinker Mary Ann's parents were William Henry Sinker and Mary Ann Clegg.   In 1887 they lived at 32 Acton Street, Halliwell when Mary Ann was baptised. 

In 1907, after they marredi and when Ernest was baptised, the family had moved down the road to 4 Acton Street.

Edward died young (36) in 1920 so Mary may have re-married. There is a marriage of Mary A Mather to David Lythgoe at St Thomas, Halliwell in 1923 that fits well.
1907 - 1907 Ernest Mather 1911 - 1967 Alice Mather 56 56 Possible MATHER DNA connection, but could also be HOWARTH, HASLAM and LOMAX.  No shared DNA matches. 1913 - 1917 Herbert Mather 3 3 Herbert was bon 3 July 1913, so it should be possible to find him on the 1939 register, but he is missing, presumed dead?

In 1917, Herbert may have died SW Bolton aged 3.
1913 Joseph Mather Herbert and Joseph were twins, the births registered together (adjacent record numbers) in 1913 at Little Bolton.

In 1939, Joseph was single and a Joiner living with his Bro-in-Law and Sister John and Alice Unsworth at Valpy Av, Bolton

In 1912, John and Lily (4 & 3) travelled to Quebec, Canada to be met by their father. This is why he was missing on the 1911 census.

In 1939, James and Annie lived at 22 Wallace Street, Bolton

In 1871, John is 21 with his mother Hannah (Head, 66, Mar). Had his father Thomas gone?

In 1874, John married Elizabeth Naylor. John's sister Hannah married Samuel Naylor in 1870, and they may be brother and sister (tbc).

In 1881, John (an under carder, born Turton) and Elizabeth (29 & 28) were living at 13 Cox Green Road, Walmsley, Turton with son Arthur (2).

In 1891 there is no record!

1855 Sarah Mather In 1871, Sarah was not with Ralph. She is probably an illegitimate daughter of Alice, and with her in 1881.
