His father Charles was a dock labourer, and his mother Kathleen Irish.

Before James married Sarah Jane in 1912, there is also a marriage for James Mather to Esther Sanderson at the same church (Darwen, St John) in 1909.  Did he marry twice?  Probably not, as there is no Darwen death (or any births) for Esther Mather before he married Sarah Jane.

Aug 1914, James Mather of Waterloo St, Bolton enlisted for WW1.  He was 22y, 10m.  Was this him?

In 1939, James (b.1892) and Sarah Jane (born 1894) were at Darwen with Winifred (born 1924) and Richard (born 1914).
1864 - 1926 Charles Mather 62 62 In 1881, Charles was 9 with his parents Charle and Esther and family at Over Darwen.  He was a half-time cotton weaver.

In 1891, Charles was 28 when married he married Ada (22).  His father was also Charles, an Engine Tenter.  A few days later the census shows Charles and Ada (28 & 22) at Over Darwen.

In 1901, Charles (37) was a dock labourer living in Pendleton. His (partner/wife) Kathleen (31) was irish.  They had James (9), Augustine (3) and Mary (2)

It became clear in other records they were not married, and Augustine was not Charles's.

By 1911, Charles (46) was a Paper Manufacturer. He was with Kate Holohan (44) from Tipperary but she was Single.  Augustine Holohan (13 was a boarder.  He also had three daughters Mary (12), Beatrice (7), and Lillian Ann (4).
1870 Kathleen (Kate) Holohan 1897 Augustine Holohan Augustine seems to be an illegitimate child, clearly not a Mather. 1899 Mary Mather 1903 Beatrice Mather 1907 - 1925 Lilian Ann Mather 18 18 1869 Ada Stott In 1891, Ada was 22, daughter of James Stott, an Accountant (Charted Accountant in 1901)  when she married Charles (who was 28)

In 1901, Ada Mather (32, married) was with her parents James and    Mary Ann Stott at Darwen.  She also may have had a son Richard Stott (not Mather) born 1889
1894 Ethel Mather Ethel's birth was registered in 1894, yet her baptism show a DOB on 19 Mar 1895. One record must be wrong! 1900 - 1901 Arthur Mather 1 1 1879 James Mather 1871 Deborah Mather In 1891, Deborah married Richard Edward Porter 1857 John Mather 1859 Jane Mather 1864 William Mather 1866 Amos Mather In 1887, Amos married Emma Walsh.

In 1829, Joshua married Elizabeth Kay at Walton-le-Dale, Preston.  A witness was James Mather, but he has no brother James!

In 1835, Margaret was born. Soon after that, the family relocated to Bolton.

In 1841, Joshua (35) was a Shopkeeper at Bridge House, White Lion Brow with Elizabeth (30), with his three daughters (8, 5 & 5mo).

In April 1851, Joshua and Elizabeth (45 & 42) were at 1 Baldwin Street, W Bolton with Margaret, Elizabeth, Thomas and John (15, 10, 7 & 5), and also Thomas Kay (45), probably Elizabeth's brother (tbc).

On the 24 May 1851 at Lowell, Massachusetts (MA), USA, Joshua Mather, aged 45, son of Thomas & Catherine Mather, a Manufacturer from England married Mary Jane Smith (aged 27, Daughter of David and Rosina Smith). A bigamist?  Probably not, this Josiah Mather as he died 22 June 1865 at Lowell, MA, USA. However, there is also a John Mather born about 1847 who emigrated to Fitchburg, Worcester, Massachusetts and that could be his son.

In 1861, Joshua and Elizabeth were at Blackburn Street

Elizabeth died, and Joshua, now living in Farnworth married Maria Haydock (or Haddock).  Their 1871 marriage was at Preston Registry Office.

In 1875, Joshua Mather died in Farnworth.  There is a probate record, leaving £100 to Maria.

1755 - 1835 Mary (Mally) Bury 80 80 John Hamer of Deane married Mary Yates in 1782, which is a good match except he was from Deane, not Entwistle.  The John Hamer of Bury (who had another Rachel the same year) is another person.  There is also Mary Bury who married John Hamer in 1871 which is also likely.  Betty's baptism confirms the mother is "Berry".

Mary, wife of John Hamer was buried 3 Feb 1835, aged 80 at St Ann's Turton.

In 1841, Ann (55, No Caling) may have been in the Turton Workhouse with Samuel Mather (45, Weaver).

1841 - 1864 John Holden 23 23 There is no Birth regiostration for John Holden with Mother MATHER.  It is therefore to be assumed that like his sister, he was also adopted. 1844 - 1916 Sarah Ann Holden 71 71 Sarah Ann is the daughter of Thomas Holden and Alice Jepson who married in 1842 at Blackburn. Thomas was probably William's brother and Alice died in childbirth (1844, aged 23, Darwen, ref:D/5/46).  She was then adopted and baptised by William and Nancy.

18 April 1888, Sarah Ann Holden (48), daughter of William Holden (Dec, Blacksmith) was a Widow when she married john Buckley (57, Widower).
1859 Nancy Holden Nancy and Hannah's mothers maiden name is shown as ECCLES.  There is no marriage of William Holden to ECCLES, although there are many others incliding John Holden at Darwen.  It seems Nancy and Hannah's parents are John and Alice 1860 Hannah Holden Nancy and Hannah's mothers maiden name is shown as ECCLES.  There is no marriage of William Holden to ECCLES, although there are many others incliding John Holden at Darwen.  It seems Nancy and Hannah's parents are John and Alice 1839 Alice Eccles 1843 - 1843 Thomas Holden There are other MATHER+HOLDEN births, including some before William and Nancy married, and it is possible Thomas is of another Darwen family. 1846 Elizabeth Cooper In 1869, bride's Father: Thomas Cooper, Weaver
