Representative of: Elizabeth was an executor of Thomas&#39;s will of 1867 Work with: Marieanne (1869 trade directory) and her sister-in-law Ellen (1871 census) were both Confectioners.&#32; Marianne at Staleybridge, and Ellen at Bolton Relative of Lives with: In 1851, Edward Williams (16) was living with his older step-brother Robert Moscrop. Relative of: Thomas and Samuel are possibly related and may be brothers. They are both Iron Moulder families, and both had sons named Ralph around 1826-28. Relative of: Samuel is Mathias&#39;s oldest son, both Iron Moulders Lives with: Ralph (15) was an Iron Moulder in 1841, at Dawes Street, East Bolton with his father Samuel and Hannah (assumed grand mother). Lives with: George (12) was an Iron Moulder in 1841, at Dawes Street, East Bolton with his father Samuel and Hannah (assumed grand mother). Lives with: In 1891, George (61, Wid) was living with his daughter Emma Airey Named After 1742 James Mather There are several James Mather records for Dean and surrounding neighbourhood in 1743.  However, by only looking at the christening index on Batch Number P005891, there is only one, son of Ralph. 1747 <unknown> Mother of James recorded as Mrs James Mather. 1794 - 1841 Ellen Rigby 46 46 In 1841, Ellen, wife of Samuel Mather of Great Bolton died, aged 46. 1814 Marianne Mather Maryann Mather was listed as a Confectioner at 69 Market Street, Stalybridge in 1869. 1816 - 1869 Thomas Mather 53 53 In 1841, Thomas, a moulder, and Alice (both 20) were in Burnley with Ellen (4) and Alice (1)

Possibly boarding with Ann Mollineaux (nee Mather) and Thomas in Worsley in 1861, or more likely Thomas the Iron Moulder (like his father), maried to Ellen and living at Bradshawgate (both 45).

If married to Alice, then they lived in Burnley after they married in about 1835, and had Ellen aged 4 in 1841 who later died, and Ellen aged 1 who survived.  Thomas and wife Ellen are both born in Bolton and had returned to Bolton by 1846-48.
1819 Alice Mather 1826 Ralph Mather In 1841, living with father Samuel, an Iron Moulder, at Dawes St, East Bolton.  Ralph was also an Iron Moulder.

Ralph married Roseanna, but she died young in Apr 1852, aged only 24.  He married Sarah the following year.

Ralph, already a widower of Little Bolton, married Sarah Butler the daughter of James Makin in 1853. His farther is recorded as Samuel.  He lived at 52 Halliwell Road.
~1700 - 1753 Ralph Mather 53 53 After Rlph married Margaet in 1720, they initially lived in Over Ollton (where James was born), before moving back to Astley in Leigh. 1724 Anna Garnet Ann's father may have been Isaac Garnet and wife (b.1688), but unsure if this is the correct wife of Ralph as she was married 3 years after the birth of James. 1748 Martha Mather On one record, recorded as sister of James, bot on two other records, recorded as daughter of Ann Garnet Mather. 1745 - 1746 Alice Mather 1 1 1749 John Mather 1750 Mary Mather 1752 Elizabeth Mather 1684 - 1727 Isaac Garnet 43 43 ~1688 Mrs Isaac Garnet 1829 - 1891 George Mather 62 62 Living with father Samuel, an Iron Moulder, at Dawes St, East Bolton in 1841.  George was also an Iron Moulder.

In Feb 1851, George Married Esther Glazenbrook.  They were both aged 21 at 12 Harson Street, W Bolton on the April census..

In 1861, George and Esther (31 & 32) were in E Bolton with son William (7) and Mary Ellen (1) and Esther's (assumed) mother Alice Glazenbrook (64).

In 1891, George (61, Wid) was living with his daughter Emma Airey
1776 - 1842 Betty Johnson 66 66 Betty's parents were Peter and Ellen.

Richard & Betty also had John Johnson (51 or 57) with them in 1841.  This was probably Betty's brother.  The whole family were hand loom weavers.  Nathan Johnson, another possible brother (or close relative) was witness at her marriage.
1803 - 1867 Thomas Mather 63 63 Thomas's father (aged 60), who was living in Farnworth in 1841 married Rachel Howarth on 23rd Oct 1842 at St John, Farnworth.

Thomas was living at Mather's court when he died in 1867.  The family continued to live there after his death.  Elizabeth, the youngest, was still there in 1881.
1801 - 1871 Rachel Mather 70 70 Unmarried and with brother Thomas (head) in 1861, aged 60. 1780 - 1839 Matthias Mather 59 59 Mathias Mather was an important and sucessful person, listed at Howell Croft, Bolton in the 1818 Bolton Directory and 1821 directory.

Mathias Mather, Iron Mouilder is listed at 3 Derby Street in the Lancashire Gazetteer of 1824

In Dec 1839, the partnership between Matthias Mather and Edwin Preistley Mather, under the firm of MATHER & SON of Great Bolton, as Chemists, Drugists and Grocers was dissolved by mutal concent.  Dated 11th but reported on the 21st, about 4 days after Mathias Mather died.

Mathias Mather and Mathias Mather jnr, both moulders, are listed at Derby St, Bolton in the 1820 Bolton Directory, and Mathias jnr (aged 30) is still there in the 1841 census.

He died in East Bolton in 1839, leaving an estate worth about £3,000
1769 - 1835 James Mather 66 66 James was the son of another James from Middle Hulton, but who was this James?  There are no other childrens baptisms at Deane, of James Mather.  There are baptisms at Leigh of James (& Sarah) in 1767,69,72,73,74,75 but these must be another as they overlap our James baptised in 1769.  Likewise James and Mary of Radcliffe with baptisms 1766 and 1769 are another. 1816 - 1850 Ann Mather 34 34 1819 - 1894 Elizabeth Mather 75 75 Elizabeth was baptised at the Halshaw Moor Chapel, Farnworth Independant, the only one of her family to be baptised here.

Unmarried and with brother Thomas (head) in 1861, aged 42

Elizabeth (sister) was named in the probate of Thomas Mather.
1822 Henry Latham Henry's father was Joseph Latham.

In 1841, Henry Latham (10) was at Kay Street, Little Bolton with William and Mary Lathem (35 & 40).  This may be another, as wrong assumed father.

In 1851, Henry and Alice (29 & 33) with lodgers John and James Hardcastle (18 & 16) were at 15 Hulme Street, Little Bolton. In the same house were Robert Latham (also 29, a rope maker) and his wife Sarah (28) and family.

In 1861, Henry and Alice (39 & 44) were at 37 Hulme Street with Robert at No. 35. They were not twins, possibly cousins (as Robert was born in Ormskirk).
1752 - 1830 William Mather 78 78 There is a record at Bolton archivers pertaining to "Apprenticeship Indenture - William, son of Ralph Mather of Middle Hulton to Thomas Morris of Great Bolton, weaver, date 27 Feb 1764".  This is probably this William (aged 12), and an orphan.

1832 - 1833 Doctor Mather 8m 8m "Doctor" is probably a transcription error and should be "D'r" (i.e. the short form of daughter). 1837 - 1905 Ellen Mather 68 68 Ellen, daughter of Thomas Mather married Robert Leatherbarrow in 1856 at Bolton Christ Church.  They used Mather as a middle name for some children.

Ellen spent most of her life pregnant.  Between 1856 when she married and 1882 Ellen had 17 children (one unnamed), the last Walter, born after they moved to Chadderton.  Only 4 boys survived past their second birthday.

In 1891, Ellen Leatherbarrow was 52, Wid at 136 Oldham Road, Failsworth, Lancashire with sons Thomas (20), Robert (18), George (12) and John F (25, nephew).

In 1892, Ellen Leatherbarrow married George Henry Buchanan.

In 1901, George and Ellen Buchanah (60 & 62) were at 27 Oldham Road, Failsworth with her sons Robert (27) and George Herbert (13), and also George's son Henry Buchanan (13).
1824 - 1840 Samuel Mather 16 16 1832 James Mather Missing from 1841 census (although brothers Ralph and George were at East Bolton), so presumed died or taken into care. 1792 - 1847 Samuel Mather 55 55 Samuel was an Iron Moulder, but not from Lancashire (possibly Stalybridge, Cheshire where Maryanna lived). His son Thomas married in Warrington in 1836.

Samuel (45) was an Iron Moulder in 1841, at Dawes Street, East Bolton with son Ralph (15) and George (12).  Hannah (assumed mother), a dress mamker, was also present, aged 60.

Ellen died in 1841.  In 1842, Samuel Mather, Widower, son of Thomas, was at York Street and Phebe Williams, Widow at Princess Street, North Manchester when they married at Manchester Cathederal, and then moved to L.B. 



~1725 - ~1786 Ann Whittle 61 61 John was a widower and Ann as Widow when they married.  She was possibly not Ann Shovelton who married to Thomas Whittle in 1745 (Deane), as I find no death for Thomas. ~1724 - 1801 Sarah Watson 77 77 Possible maiden for Sarah Mather (from marriages) are HINE (m.1843), HORROCKS (m.1844), SCHOFIELD (m.1846) and WHITEHEAD (m.1847).  Only SCHOFIELD has possible birth records, but a poor match.

If Elizabeth and Sarah are sisters, then this is Hannah (not Sarah) Wolfendale who married William in 1840 at Tyldesley.
1758 - 1758 James Mather 1m 1m 1759 Sarah Mather 1724 - 1797 James Mather 73 73 James, son of James Mather of Over Hulton, Weaver, baptised in January 1724

James's parents were probably James and Alice (Alice wife of James of Rumworth died in 1764).
~1700 Richard (Rade) Mather ~1700 Elizabeth Roebotham 1728 Johannes Mather 1731 Thomas Mather 1780 - 1848 Hannah Mather 68 68 This Hannah Mather was the widow of Thomas Mather, an Iron Moulder (see death cert).

It appears Hannah was head of household in 1841, living at Dawes Street (near Great Moor St), Bolton, a dress maker, and had son Samuel (45, b,~1795) with her.  There was also Ralph (15) and George (12), all Iron Moulders.  Hannah and Samuel were NOT from Lancashire.  Hannah also had a daughter Selina who was living at Dawes Street in 1840 at the time of her marriage.

Therefore this cant be the Hannah Knowles who married Richard Mather.
~1780 - <1838 Thomas Mather 58 58 By 1841 Thomas had died (most likely before 1837). 1810 - 1865 John Mather 54 54 John was the son of John Mather, a Weaver.

John (from Breightmet) and Ann were at Ladygate, Tonge with Haulgh in 1841.  John was a dyer, and they had their first child Mary (aged 2).

John and Hannah moved to Pilkington about 1840, where their third son William also died, followed by Hannah.  John, living at Deansgate, then remarried Elizabeth Holland nee Bostock in Dec 1848.  They had a daughter Sarah 9 months later, and John later became a Slater (see 1861 census).  They had a boarder John Hampson (54), a coal miner, boarding with them in 1861.
1814 - 1846 Hannah (Ann) Dearden 32 32 Hannah's father was possibly John (1762-1839), who is also buried at Ainsworth. 1839 Mary Mather 1835 - 1837 William Mather 1 1 1842 - 1843 William Mather 1 1 1834 - 1835 William Mather 9m 9m 1818 - 1861 Elizabeth Bostock 43 43 Only one match on LancashireBMD and FreeBMD, and appeard to also be known as Elizabeth Bostock (her maiden name, as she was the daughter of Joseph Bostock, a labourer).

John and Elizabeth had a daughter Sarah Ann, and John later became a Slater (see 1861 census).  They had a boarder John Hampson (54), a coal miner, boarding with them in 1861.
1849 Sarah Ann Mather John Mather <unknown> 1816 - 1847 Charles Holland 31 31 1776 - 1843 Thomas Mather 67 67 In 1798, Thomas married Betty Johnson.  A family of spinners in 1841

In 1841, Thomas and Betty (68 & 60) were at Nelson Lane, Farnworth with Rachel (40), Thomas (35), Ann (20) and Elizabeth (15).

In 1842, Thomas (60) married Rachel (36) at Farnworth with Kearsley, St John The Evangelist
~1754 - 1789 Jane (Jennet) Parlington 35 35 Indexed as Jane "Packington" and "Partington" but could be Parlington or Darlington, but not Packington (see marriage record).

Cant find any other John and Jenette records, and suspect she is really Jane, which then connect with other births and marriage.

Jane Mather died in 1789, shortly after the last birth (of infant Isaac).  She would have been about 35.
1788 - 1802 Isaac Mather 14 14 Isaac was baptised son of Jenny.  Mother was "Jane" for all the other baptisms and burials, so possibly another family!

There was an Inquest for Isaac Mather of Little Bolton who died in 1802 (see Coroners compiled claims 1803).  This may have been this Isaac (although burial does not show parents so may have been an another adult Isaac Mather).
1775 - 1778 Lettice Mather 2 2 1785 John Mather In 1825, John (a Dyer) may have married Ann Whittle at Deane.  He had a grandmother of the same name.

This could be the John Mather that married Ann Coupe in 1811 and named their first daughter Jane (i.e. after his mother).
D. 1786 James Mather 1778 - 1823 Lettice Mather 44 44 Lettice the first born 1773, died June 1778, so this Lettice was baptised just a couple of weeks later in July 1778
~1799 - 1799 Hannah Mather Hannah was an illegitimate daughter of Lettice Mather, buried at Turton 11 Nov 1799, before her mother married John Edge. 1780 - 1864 John Edge 84 84 In 1851 and 1861, John was living with his son Adam Edge at 42 Commission Street, Bolton 1805 Ann Edge 1807 Allias Edge Allias is a son of John and Lettice (so not Alice) 1814 Thomas Mather 1823 Charles Mather 1776 Thomas Mather ~1775 - <1841 Elizabeth (Betty) Higginbottom 66 66 In 1841: Thomas Mather was 65 at Hilton Lane, Little Hulton, Dean (4 miles S of Bolton).  He was an agricultural labourer living with Samuel Higginbottom (a farmer) and his family.  Thomas had married Eliz’h Higginbottom at Manchester 17-Oct-1802, so was a relative. ~1809 Ellen Mather Ellen Mather, Single Woman, had a child John, baptised 13 Oct 1825.  Her abode was also Rainhill, so probably as sister of Thomas and George. 1750 Alice Mather 1754 - 1754 James Mather 3m 3m 1756 - 1756 Mary Mather 2m 2m 1752 - 1847 Richard Mather 95 95 1777 Thomas Mather 1828 - 1852 Rosannah Peak 24 24 Rosanna's father was Francis Peak.

Rosannah was 24 on the 1851 census, but later died, leaving son Thomas aged 4.
1816 Ellen Warburton Ellen, 45, was house keeper in 1861.

By 1871, Ellen was a widow, working as a confectioner.  She had her four youngest sons with her, and a domestic servant..

Ellen and family lived at 149 Bradshawgate in 1861 and 1871.
1840 Alice Mather Alice married Alfred Farnworth (or Samworth) 5 Aug 1861 at St Peter, Bolton.  Witnesses were her sister and husband Ellen and Robert Leatherbarrow. 1844 Sarah Mather 1848 - 1906 James Warburton Mather 58 58 James married Esther Lever in 1869 (Bolton Le Moors, Holy Trinity) and moved to Over Darwen.  His youngest brother Walter was living with them in 1881. 1852 William Mather 1856 (John) Thomas Mather John Thomas, known as Thomas 1858 George Mather 1850 - 1855 Thomas Mather 5 5 1862 - 1884 Walter Mather 22 22 1859 Alice Mather 27 Sep 1882, Alice of 38 Halliwell Road, daughter of Ralph, Iron Moulder married Christopher Riley, son of James Riley, a painter at Bolton. 1829 Sarah Makin Sarah's father was James Makin 1827 - 1852 John Butler 25 25 John's father was William Butler 1850 Elizabeth Ann Butler 1852 John Butler 1863 Hannah Mather 1866 - 1872 Sarah Ellen Mather 6 6 1869 Clara Mather ~1725 John Mather John lost his wife Mary when the twins were born.  With a young family to care for, he must have surely remarried.

John Married Ann Whittle 9 months after the death of hise first wife Mary.  They may have moved to St. Helens as there are births for Betty and Jeffery Mather in 1761 and 1763, which fit well with the marriage (none earlier) and also the re-use of Jeffery the the son that recently died. However son John was still in Bolton when he married in 1775.
~1725 - 1760 Mary Meadowcroft 35 35 Mary Meadowcroft (not Mary Moadworth as indexed).

Mary died giving birth to the twins Jeoffery and Martha, and was buried the day the twins were baptised.  With no mother, the twins also perished within two months.
1747 - 1751 John Mather 4 4 1752 Richard Mather Richard and Nancy moved to Liverpool, where Richard possibly was a sailor (mariner).  The children were baptised in Liverpool. 1753 - 1801 Lettice Mather 48 48 Possibly married John Edge i10-Apr-1802 1755 Mary Mather Possibly Mary of Bolton married Robert Holt (or Holt) of Deane in Nov 1773 1758 Alice Mather Alice seems to have survived, as there is no burial record for her. 1760 - 1760 Jeffery Mather 2m 2m 1760 - 1760 Martha Mather 1m 1m 1754 John Mather John named two daughters Lettice, named after his sister.

Abode: L.B. when Lettice (or Luttice), John & Isaac were baptised.
1750 - 1750 Richard Mather 9m 9m 1761 Betty Mather Probably the child of another John, not the one from Farnworth 1763 - 1818 Jeffery Mather 55 55 Probably the child of another John, not the one from Farnworth ~1752 Nancy Nichols ~1753 Richard Booth Richard and Lettice lived at Heapey (where son John was born and Lettice died) 1792 John Booth 1784 Sarah Mather 1786 Henry Mather 1757 Dinah Mather 1700 - 1749 Margaret Green 48 48 Margaret was the daughter of Joseph or Adam Green of Leigh, (so born 1698 or 1700) 1735 Abigale Mather 1733 Joseph Mather 1730 Henry Mather 1726 Alice Mather 1738 Adam Mather 1755 Hannah Mather 1759 - 1759 William Mather 1724 James Mather ~1725 Ralph Mather In 1696, the first Inn in the township of Shakerley was "Mather's Inn". The innkeeper was William Mather.  Perhaps this William was Ralph's father. 1795 - 1855 Phoebe Diggle 60 60 Phebe Diggle was the daughter of Abraham Diggle, a dyer and Sarah his wife.

In 1841, Phoebe (64) was recently widowed, She had sons James, Daniel and Thomas (19, 17 & 15), all Mechanics.  She also had Phoebe (7) and Edward (3) from her second marriage.
1831 Sarah Moscrop In 1851, Sarah was 20 and with her mother Phebe mather in Little Bolton.

In 1852, Sarah married John Wilson at Bolton Christ Church
1834 Phebe Williams 1785 - 1841 Daniel Williams 56 56 Daniel Williams, Widower married Phebe Moscrop Widow at Deane 1796 - 1832 William Moscrop 36 36 William and Pheobe had three daughters: Ann (b.1822), Esther (b.1825) and Sarah (b.1831).  Only Sarah was with her mother in 1851. ~1832 John Wilson 1836 - 1870 Edward Williams 34 34 1818 Robert Moscrop Robert became head of family after his father died.

In 1851, Robert Moscrop (33) and his wife Catherine (31) had his younger brother Edward Williams (14) living with him at 46 Wood Street, in Little Bolton.  His mother, now Phoebe Mather (3rd marriage) was also in Little Bolton.
1822 James Moscrop 1824 Daniel Moscrop 1826 Thomas Moscrop 1828 - 1829 Abraham Moscrop 1 1 1808 - 1865 Thomas Mather 56 56 Thomas is the likely brother or step-brother of Samuel Mather (1792-1847).  They were both Iron Moulders from Bolton, and both had sons named Ralph, Thomas and George.
