Abraham reported his death the following year. Neighbor: Joseph Mather (farmer) and Elizabeth were at Higher Know Mill, with Abraham and Alice Settle (nee Mather) with their father Isaac (aged 80) at Know Mill, Edgworth in 1841.  With the absence of baptism records for this period, Its is therefore assumed Alice and Joseph are siblings. Neighbor: Isaac (weaver) was alive in 1841 at Know Mills, Edgworth, with his daughter Alice Settle (b.1801).  He died the following year.
Neighbours at Higher Know Mills were farmer Joseph & Elizabeth Mather (40 & 35) and family. Employee of: Alice and Margaret (Hargreves) wiere with Solomon in 1841 and 1851
Working as cook for her father Solomon (a publican) in 1851 in Little Bolton. 
She was also recorded as from Little Bolton when she married Joseph Beddows the following year. Lives with: Sarah A Mather (niece) was living with Susanna and Dennis Leach in Rhode Island, USA in 1865 and 1880 Other: DOUBLE Marriage:  Isaac and sister Alice had a double marriege, both marrying their partners at St Peter's on 4 April 1836 Other: Ann and Esther had a double marriage.  They both married an Isharwood on 4-Sep-1811 at St Peter's, Bolton Relative of: Son B.M. has 30 cM match to John Eastaugh Relative of: John Eastaugh is the 4x great grandson of Ann Mather, confirmed by DNA matches Lives with: In 1861, step-daughter Margaret Hardman (24) and her grandmother Mary (i.e. Mally), described as Mother-in-law, were living with Joseph and Alice Knight.
In 1863, Joseph and Elizabeth Alice Knight were witness when Margaret Hardman married Thomas Hopkins. Lives with: In 1871, Thomas E Hopkins (24) was with his mother, living at his grandmother's Alice Knight (76) Relative of: 22 cM DNA match to John Eastaugh Relative of: 14cM DNA Match 1812 - 1838 Betty Garside 26 26 1836 - 1837 Fanny Mather 1 1 Fanny was probably named after Isaac's youngest sister, Fanny born 5 years earlier (also baptised at Edgworth Independant).

Fammy died Sep 1842 (registered Bury), aged 1.  However there is a Fanny Mather aged 7 with Thomas and Ann Mather in 1841, but this is another (unrelated).
1815 - <1898 Sarah Smith 83 83 Sarah's father was Henry Smith from Edgworth, a Mason.

Sarah and Isaac were recorded at Southbridge, Worcester, Massachusetts, USA in 1850 with their first four children, all born in the US, so they must have emigrated before 1842, so soon after they married (they cant be found on the UK 1841 census).

Sarah possibly died 16 Aug 1856 in Rhode Island, and Isaac remarried another Sarah in the US.  This would also explain why daughter Sarah Alice went to live with her aunt Susannah.  Alternatively the family may have broken up and Sarah returned to the UK as a Sarah Mather was living with her brother-in-law James Smith (b.1800) in 1851 at 31 Rothwell St. or could this be another?  Something happened, as her daughter Sarah Alice seems to have been adopted by her sister Susanna.  Isaac’s newspaper obituary does say that Isaac married again in the US.

Isaac is back with (another younger?) Sarah in 1880, but no children present. Sarah (63) and Isaac (69) are at Rhode Island, USA.

When his son James died, the informant recorded his mother's name as Margaret Smith.  This is assumed to be an error as there is no such marriage (UK or US).
1791 - 1863 Mary (Mally) Grime 72 72 Lived at Brown St, Edgworth.

Mary is sometimes knows as "Mally", a Scottish or Northern England nickname.
1812 - 1898 Isaac Mather 86 86 Sarah was not with Isaac in 1851, but was recorded as married (not Widow), so Isaac was probably still alive then (possibly in the USA).

In 1839, Isaac, son of Solomon, a mechanic from Edgworth
was a widower when he married Sarah Smith.  He was NOT in Montgomery, PA - That is another.

About 1840, Isaac and Sarah (nee Smith) moved to the USA. 

In 1851, Isaac and Sarah (both 37) are at Southbridge, Worcester, Massachusetts, USA with William H (8), Elisabeth (6), James A (4), and Susannah (2).

In 1870, Isaac and Sarah (60 & 54) are at Warwick, Kent, Rhode Island.

In 1880, Isaac and Sarah (69 & 63) were at Warrick, Kent, Rhode Island.  This Sarah was his third wife, married in Bolton in 1839.

Isaac from Edgworth has been reported by some as born 27 Oct 1799 (this is an error), died 1898 (aged 99) who married three times, the last marriage being Sarah Langford (also wrong), before they emigrated to the USA.  This Isaac was already in the US by 1850, and was actually born 1812, which explains why he was so fit at 99. Sarah Langford actually married Morgan Pender in Q3/1838, while another Isaac Mathers married Esther Kershaw, both at Manchester.
1814 - 1895 Alice Mather 81 81 Working as cook for father Solomon (a publican) in 1851.  She was recorded as from Little Bolton when she married Joseph Beddows the following year.

in Dec 1852, Alice Hargreves (nee Mather) married Joseph Beddows.  Alice's father is recorded as "Solomon Mather, Publican".

Alice was missing in 1861

In 1871, Joseph and Alice were at the Boars Head, Bolton, so it seems Alice kept her fathers business going as an Inn Keeper.
1812 - 1840 Jabez Hargreaves 28 28 Not the Jazez Hargreves from Newchurch in Pendle, who married Mary and had children Thomas, Susannah, Eliz and Michael (1837 - 1845) 1829 Amos Mather Amos Mather was born 2 March 1829 and baptised 30 May, the son of Solomon and Mally Mather of Edgworth

There is another Amos Mather, 4 years younger, born 1838, the son of James and Martha who married Ann Briggs.  Another Amos b.1838, son of Thomas, married Hannah Hullock in Q2/1863 at Walmsley Christ church.  The other Amos married Ann Briggs at Bolton St Peter the same year. 

What happened to Amos?  Amos Meader (born 9 Aug 1832) and buried 1899 in Clinton, NY is another person.  He may have died an infant!

In Sep 1870, there is a marriage between Amos Mather and Margaret Howarth at Blackburn.  This Amos was born about 1843 at Mellor, Blackburn and died there in 1892
1836 Margaret Hargreaves In 1851, Margaret (14) was with her widowed mother Alice Hargreaves (36) and Solomon Mather at the Talbot pub, Brown Street, Little Bolton.

In 1861, step-daughter Margaret Hardman (24) and her grandmother Mary (i.e. Mally), described as mother-in-law, were living with Joseph and Alice Knight.

In 1863, Margaret (from Edgworth) appears to have married Thomas Hopkins and had two children. Census records are consistent with her from Edgworth (before and after marriage).

There is also a marriage in 1870 for a single Margaret Hargreaves, father Jabez, who married John Russell at St Peter's Manchester.  Either this is a bigamous marriage or there are two Margarets with father called Jabez!  There are no census records for this Margaret from Edgworth, so this must be another!
John Russell father's name: Thomas Russell   1809 - 1884 Joseph Knight 75 75 In 1861, Joseph and Alice Knight (52 & 46) were at 63 Haydock Street, Little Bolton with Margaret Hadrman (sep-daughter) and Mary Mather (71, Mother-in-law) formerly Mally Grime.

In 1863, Joseph and Elizabeth Alice Knight were witness when Margaret Hardman married Thomas Hopkins.

In 1871, Joseph and Alice were at the Boars Head, Bolton, so it seems Alice kept her fathers business going as an Inn Keeper.
1819 - 1856 Joseph Beddows 36 36 Joseph married Alice Hargreved (nee Mather) in 1852 when he was a Millwright.

Alice's father Solomon Mather was a publican in 1851, and it is just possible that so was Joseph Beddows.  Probate for Joseph Beddows who died in 1858 (not 1856 as this one did) shows he died at the Black Greyhound", Horwich.  This Joseph was buried at Horwich Holy Trinity in Jun 1856!.

Possibly born Hindley, as a Joseph Beddows, widower, age 30, was lodging at 13 Gas Street in 1851 with Grime and Pendlebury families.
1833 Thomas Hopkins 27 Aug 1863, Thomas Hopkins (Ful agel, Pattern Maker, Bachelor, Little Bolton) married Margaret Hargreaves.  Thomas's father was William Hopkins, a Pattern Maker. 1866 - 1908 Thomas Ernest Hopkins 42 42 In 1901, Thomas, 34 and single, nephew with his uncle John and Elizabeth Peake. 1864 - 1876 Herbert Hopkins 12 12 ~1764 Alice Fielding Possibly Alice is the daughter of John and Susan Fielding from Milnrow (E of Rochdale), but that isnt Bolton Parish, which is where she was from when married.  Alice from Adlington, born 2 Sep 1759 is more likely as closer age match to Isaac, and also correct parish.

There is a 21cM DNA connection via Alice's brother Abraham Fielding (both children of J Fielden/Fielding) to John Eastaugh.
1791 - 1849 Abraham Settle 58 58 Settle indexed as "Senle" on 1841 census.  Joseph Mather (farmer) and Elizabeth were at Higher Know Mill, Edgworth with Abraham and Alice Settle (nee Mather) and their father Isaac (aged 80) at Know Mill.  With the absence of baptism records for this period, Its is therefore assumed Alice and Joseph are siblings. 1801 - 1863 Alice Mather 62 62 1841, Abraham (45, Bleacher) and Alice Settle (40) were at Know Mills, Edgworth with William (15), John (12) and Alice (5), and Alice's father Isaac Mather (80).

1861, Alice Settle (60) was at Edgworth with Rachel Mather (73), both Washerwomen.  Ann also had her daughter Elizabeth (18) with her.
1825 William Settle 1829 James (John) Settle 1836 Alice Settle 1843 - 1874 Elizabeth Settle 30 30 In 1861, Elizabeth (18) was still with her mother.  She did not marry (not between 1861-1871)

In 1871, Elizabeth Settle (28) was an inmate in the Salford Union Workhouse.

Elizabeth died in 1874, aged only 31 (recorded as 29)

Elizabeth didnt marry Abraham Higginson in 1880. That Elizabeth was the daughter or Thomas Whitehead.
1822 - 1892 Stephen Settle 69 69 In 1849, Stephen a Grocer at Strangeways, Manchester, son of Abraham a farmer, married Jane Howe at Manchester

In 1851, Stephen, a Grocer and Tea Dealer, born Entwistle (28) and Jane (27) had their son William (1), two apprentices and a house servant living at Gt Ducie Street, Cheetham, Lancashire
1760 - 1842 Isaac Mather 82 82 Isaac, a Weaver married Alice Fielding (spinster) on 4 Jan 1787.  The Solomon born 1798 is probably their son (as know to be born at Toppings).

After they married in 1787, Isaac and Alice lived at Toppings, Turton, which is recorded on the baptism records for Ann (1790) and Esther (1792).

Isaac (weaver) was alive in 1841 at Know Mills, Edgworth, with his daughter Alice Settle (b.1801).  He died the following year.  Neighbours at Higher Know Mills were farmer Joseph & Elizabeth Mather (40 & 35) and family (his son).

Isaac may have had other children after Alice (baptism records are known to be lost).  However, it is likely Alice was the youngest daughter as he was living with her before he died in 1842.
1845 - 1915 Elizabeth Frances Mather 70 70 1846 - 1919 James A Mather 72 72 According to James A Mather's death cert, he was a printer.

One the PA death record, his mother is named as Margaret Smith, not Sarah Smith. The informant (Mrs Mary Mather) must have got it wrong (Sarah had died 22y earlier)

James A Mather had a son James Edward Mather and through him there is a DNA match to Paul Mather and John Eastaugh (but not me).
1854 - 1923 Sarah Alice Mather 69 69 Sarah was born at Rhode Island, and for many years was brought up by uncle and aunt Dennis and Susanna Leach.

Sarah married Edward Creighton of Scottish descent in 1882 (had been married 18 years in 1900).

The 1900 census is a bit odd.  Sarah was aged 46, yet had been in the US for 50 years.

There was come confusion as to where Sarah was born.  On the 1923 death record her mother is shows correctly as Sarah Smith, but the father Isaac Creighton, her merried name (not Isaac Mather).  The 1900 census shows birthplace as Ireland, but should be Rhode Island.

In 1894, Dennis Leache's estate was left to his daughter Elizabeth Manning and Sarah Alice Leighton, wife of Edward Creighton, so Sarah's middle name is Alice!
1849 - 1893 Susannah Mather 44 44 In 1860, Susannah was missing from the US census 1832 Peter Settle Indexed as "Peter Sottle" (in error) 1819 - 1876 Solomon Mather 57 57 WARNING: Another family; Richard Mather married Mary Scowcroft in 1844 and had Robert (1845) and 3 daughters Frances, Esther and Alice (registered Bury N).

There are several (4) Solomon Mathers in our tree, and not all are related.  This Solomon was a printer (not painter) at Elton near Bury, so it was likely he was.  However, his family appears to have originated from Blackburn.

Coalheaver in 1851
Printer in 1858 - 1863
Block Printer in 1866 - 1868
Labourer (at Iron Foundry) in 1870 and 1871
Driller in 1878

In 1836 Solomon and Jane lived at 68 Victoria Street, Elton.  Jane may have been spending too much on fashion (see news clip) as Solomon had to stop her credit.

In 1871, Solomon (52, Widower) was with still with his daughter Rachel (13) at Elton.  All the other daughters had married.  John Hampson (33, maried) was a visitor.
1820 James Mather In 1836, James was witness to Alice's marriage to Jabez. He would be only 16 if born 1820 (so possibly not this James, although there is no age limit).

In Oct 1840, James was a painter (or printer), son of Solomon a Joiner when he married Maria Carruthers.

No baptism for James, which is perhaps not surprising as he was probably illegitimate. Solomon father was a Publican in 1873.  However, this Solomon was in Jail in 1822 when James was Born !!

There is a James Mather (16) in Newchurch, Haslingden in 1841 with Fanny (possibly Mary his Mother) and two siblings, Elizabeth (20), and Alice (13).

In 1839, another James Mather married Mary Barrisford at Eccles. It is this James that had daughters Mary (b.1843) and Sarah Ann (b.Dec 1852)

In Feb 1873, James (51, Widow), a General Dealer, son of Solomon a Publican married Mary Murgatroyd.  This cant be the same James Hardware Dealer (born ca.1812 L.B. and married to Mary from Leeds, as they are both on the census in 1871 and 1881.
1826 Mary Murgatroyd In 1873, Mary (47, spinster) from the Burnley Road, daughter of William Murgatroyd a wool sorter married James Mather (51). ~1822 Maria Carruthers Daughter of John, a Butcher 1852 Sarah Ann Mather 1840 Martha Mather Martha (7 months) was with her parents James and Maria at Cabbage Row, Radcliffe in 1841. 1831 Fanny Mather There's a Fanny Mather, born 22 Oct 1835 (Dau of John and Mary) and baptised at Prestwich, Lancashire, who is probably the person who married Richard Hodson in 1863.

There is also a Fanny Mather, aged 7 in 1841, daughter of Thomas and Betty of Little Bolton.
1852 - 1852 Henry Mather 21d 21d 1792 - 1860 Esther Mather 68 68 Esther married Benjamin (aka Bennett) Isherwood of Bolton Parish, Weaver on 4 Sep 1811.  She was only 19 and a half.  She went on to have 10 children, the last (Alice) in 1838, aged 46.

Sisters Ann and Esther married two Isherwood (second cousins?) on the same day 4 Sep 1811.

In 1841, Bennett & Esther Isherwood (50 & 45) were at Nuttall, Holcombe with Ann and Jane (12 & 10).

In 1851, Esther (59, head) was living with her extended familiy st Nuttall, Tottongton.

1790 - 1875 Ann Mather 84 84 This Ann did not have had an illegitimate son James Mather born in April 1811.  James was baptised as son of Ann Mather at Walmsley 5 months before she married Ralph and Mary was born before September

Ann married Ralph Isherwood (1811) or Thomas Horrocks (1817) in Bolton or Isaac Turner (1813) in Deane (but no match for Turton 1801-1818).  Actually sisters Ann and Esther married two Isherwood cousins? on the same day 4 Sep 1811. It may have been a shotgun wedding as Mary was baptised 2 weeks later.

Another possibility is in 1838 Ann Mather, dau of Isaac Mather of Edgworth married John Nelson, a shoe maker of Edgworth.

In 1851, Ann (60, Head, Wid) and 7 children (one probably a grandchild, 8wks) are living in Peters Street, Preston.

1779 - 1843 Henry Smith 64 64 Henry and Betty lived at Tottington after they married, and moved to Elton about 1805 where Henry was a Shopkeeper.

Henry and betty probably moved away from Elton to Bolton.  Daughters Sarah and Susannah were married at Bolton.

Henry must have retired and moved to Lymm in Cheshire,  The burial, aged 64, at his home villiage of Tottington records Lymm as his last abode.
~1780 Betty Rigby 1810 Mary Smith 1808 Samuel Smith 1804 John Smith 1802 James Smith James was baptised at Tottington in Nov 1802.  He was one of the first to be baptised there, as the church was only founded and baptisms began 1 Sep 1799. 1806 Henry Smith 1819 - 1894 Susanna Smith 74 74 There is another Susanna and Martha Smith, daughters of Betty & Jacob who were in the 1841 Bury census. 1819 - 1894 Dennis Leach 75 75 Dennis is the son of Thomas Leach.

Dennis Leach emigrated to USA.  He arrived in New York from Liverpool on the Queen of the West 13-Dec-1844 and Nationalised 13-Jan-1853

Dennis's estate was left to his daughter Elizabeth Manning and Sarah Alice Leighton, wife of Edward Creighton.  Dennis's wif must have been devistated, and died shortly after in April 1894.
1843 Elizabeth Leach Elizabeth married Emmet P Manning in 1875.

They had Clark R (b.1869) and Clara aka Daisy (b.1871), before they were married it appears!
1798 - 1881 Joseph Mather 83 83 In 1841, Joseph Mather (farmer) and Elizabeth were at Higher Know Mill, with Abraham and Alice Settle (nee Mather) and their father Isaac (aged 80).  With the absence of baptism records for this period, Its is therefore assumed Alice and Joseph are siblings.

Son Charles had left home by 1851 (missing) to live in Horwich and in 1856 James, a Goods Porter of Horwich, son of Joseph a farmer married Betty Crook, daughter of Daniel.  In 1851, Joseph, an Agricultural labourer, and Betty (52 & 49) were at Guide Post, Turton with Elizabeth (24), Sophia (22), Frances (19), Alice (16), Jane (14), John (12), Joseph (10), James (8) and Sarah Ann (5).

In 1858, Joseph was a Publican and Farmer when daughter Alice married.

In 1861, Joseph and Betty (63 & 57) were still farming 4 acres, at Bromley Cross, Turton, and Joseph was also a beerseller.  He is listed at the Railway Hotel, Bromiley Cross, Turton in Worrall's Trade Directory.  At the same time, John Kay was a farmer at Mather fold and also a beer retailer at Cox green.

In 1871, Joseph and Betty (73 & 66) were farming 24 acres of land at Lower House, Turton.  They had their spinster daughter Frances with them.

In 1881 Joseph died a Gentleman "formerly of Turton but late of Breightmet".
1787 - 1841 James Mather 54 54 James was born about 9 months after his parents married (before Sept if 54 when died)..

James & Rachel have a DNA match to Paul Mather, but NOT me.

James's first son is also James, and both were farmers at Entwistle, probably the same farm !

In 1804, a Private James Mather, enlisted in the army, aged about 18.  He was discharged in 1818. This is another!

Weaver when children got baptised (e.g. Charles).

In Jun 1841, James and Rachel (both 54) are farmers at Sunnyside, Entwistle.  Also shown as farmer from Entwistle on son Isaac's marriage in 1839 (so possibly the wrong marriage).  With them were their younger children Nancy, Jane, Sarah, Andrew and Maria (24, 22, 18, 17, & 11), and also two illegitimate grandchildren Abel and John (5mo & 1mo).

3 Sep 1841, James Mather died of paralysis (i.e. stroke). Jenny Mather of Entwistle was present at the death (of her father).

In 1892, his youngest daughter Maria remaried (aged 63).  She recorded her father as John (not James) Mather, a Farmer.
1822 Jane Howe Jane's father was Joseph Howe, a shopkeeper 1851 - 1851 Mary E Mather 1826 Catherine Mather Catherine was born about 1826. 

There is no baptism for Catherine, but she may have been the daughter of William and Hannah (as in 1833 their son William named his first daughter Catherine). Also brother Solomon has a Catherine in 1809.  It is also likely she was illegitimate as her assumed sister (or twin) Betty was.

In 1841, Catherine (15) was the youngest of 5 servants working at the Lower House, Toppings, Turton for Eliza Winder.  Lower House is near to the Volunteer Inn and Toppings. She probably was Betty Mather's sister, who was a servant the Volunteer Inn (just across the field).

In 1841, her assumed sister Betty Mather (same age) was living nearby with James and Betty Booth nee Mather and he was also a painter. However, they were from Eccleston at the time of marriage.

23 Nov 1845, Catherine Mather, a miner, daughter of Solomon Mather, farmer, married John Jones, both of Tebbutt Street at Manchester Church.

5 Sep 1852, Catherine (24, daughter of Thomas Mather, labourer) married William Deane, aged 22 a painter at Farnworth.  This cant be her was this Catherine was born 1828.

In 1881, Catherine was a widow at 4 Eagly Bank Park Terrace with 6 children.
1789 - 1854 Solomon Mather 64 64 There is no baptism record for this Solomon.  We know he was born 1789 in Turton from his death record (aged 64) and census returns. However it is unlikely he is the son of the other Solomon from Turton who married Martha in 1790, as there are early Turton baptism records for his children, Betty and James in 1791 and 1792.  Therefore, this Solomon is more likely to be the son of one of his brothers, most likely Isaac.  This would also explain the name of their first son Isaac in 1812 and the 4 yesr gap in birth after they married..

Solomon's wife was Mary Grime.  The Manchester Mercury (Tue 6 Apr 1819) records Peter Howcroft, William Entwistle, James  Grime, Solomon Mather (and others) were all transported for 14 years for having forged bank notes.  The Lancaster Gazette also shows Solomon was aged 29, so this is him!  This is also listed in the England and Wales Criminal Register. Solomon was released after 6 of his 14 year sentence and returned to his wife Mary where it appears he had two more children after a 15 year gap.

1829 - 1830 Amos and Fanny are born and baptised at Egworth Independant, and after that there's no trace of Amos.

in 1839 when Isaac married, he recorded his father as a Mechanic.

In 1841, Solomon and Mally were at Edgworth, Solomon an Ag. Labourer.  They had daughter Alice Hargreves (25, F.S.) and her daughter Margret (4) with them.

Solomon never learned his lessons.  He was put down again for 6 months in 1849 for keeping a disorderly house (probably the Talbot Inn).

Solomon and Mally were alive in 1851, with Solomon a Publican at the Talbot, 18 Brown Street, L.B.  He had his daughter Alice Hargreves with him working as the Cook.  John and Elizabeth Mather (both born about 1808) were also at Brown Street in 1841, so may be relaed.  Alice remarried in Dec 1852, also showing Solomon as a publican.

In 1853, Solomon is shows at the Talbot Inn (Old Dog), 18 Brown Street in the Whellan & Co Trade Directory.  James Grime (probably related to his wife Mary Grime) was at the Wagon and Horses, 172 Blackburn Street, Little Bolton.  His son Isaac also had a Beer House at Edgworth.

Solomon left a Will, probate dated 29 Apr 1854, where he is described as an Inn Keeper.  The Talbot Inn (also known as the Old Dog) closed in 1879.

Solomon's death in April 1854 was reported in the Bolton Chronical: "On the 13th inst., very suddenly, Mr Solomon Mather of the Talbot Inn, Brown Street, Little Bolton."  The Inn was a working mans pub, and a meeting place for Bolton's "Radicals".

1810 Betty Mather Not sure what happened to Betty, the daughter of Solomon.  No death records, and no marriages with Solomon named.  Most probably married John Bayley in 1830 (both single) as their daughter Alice was baptised at Edgworth:

4 June 1830, John Bayley married Betty Mather. Their witness was Lawrence Wroe.  Two years later, Lawrence Roe married Maria Knowles.  Lawrence who was Irish and Maria (both born about 1810) lived in Pilkington in 1841 when Lawrence and Maria were neighbours of John and Mary Mather nee Johnson  (20 & 30), so perhaps Betty had a brother John.  
1803 John Settle John was a miner (collier) at Haulgh and Little Bolton when the first children were baptised.  In 1838 - 1840 John and Betty are shown at Little Lever.

In 1841, John and Betty Settle (both 35) were at Hall Lane, Little Lever with Peter (15), John (13), Nancy (10), Alice (3) and Richard (2).
