Children from the second marriage lived in the tiny village of Withnell, so it is possible there are two families here!
1762 - 1831 Robert Mather 69 69 Robert and Peggy were from Tokeholes.

Another Robert (and Margaret) were from Chorley, but since they had a son Robert born in 1792 (when Samuel was born), then this must be another family.  The other Robert Mather of Pigslee, Bury died 1846

In 1796, Robert's son was born at Withnell.  Also, his grand-daughter Sarah was baptised in 1848 while living at Withnell.

Another Robert (and Margaret) were from Chorley, but since they had a son Robert born in 1792 (when Samuel was born), then this must be another family.  The other Robert Mather of Pigslee, Bury died 1846

In 1796, Robert's son was born at Withnell.  Also, his grand-daughter Sarah was baptised in 1848 while living at Withnell.
1785 - 1828 Catherine Fielding 43 43 1809 Robert Mather 1811 Alice Mather 1813 Thomas Mather In May 1841, Thomas Mather, Widower married Mary Woods, both of Withnell.  In June 1841, Thomas (30) and Mary (25) were at Snapes, Withnell.

1785 - 1871 Elizabeth (Betty) Moss 86 86 Betty was a widow when she married Jonathan Mather in 1829.

Elizabeth in 1851 and 1871, but called Betty in 1861.
1831 Catherine Mather 1844 Robert Mather Robert lived with his grandparents throughout his life (in 1851, 1861, and 1871) 1826 - 1886 John Kay 60 60 1830 - 1830 Sarah Mather 3m 3m 1834 - 1850 Sarah Mather 16 16 1826 Jonathan Mather 1759 Ellen Chambers Ellen Chambers (full name) names on the last four baptism records (for John, Ellen, Nancy and Thomas). 1782 Hannah Mather 1784 Henry Mather Henry may have married Ellen.  They were both 55 in 1841, with Maria (20 and Nancy (15) at Cross Barn, Over Darwen.

In July 1761, James Mather and Esther Mason married at St Peter's, Bolton.

In 1862, Robert was baptised whjile they lived at Walmesly. Then there are no baptisms with both parents named.

There are four more births from 1780 (after an 18 year gap), with abode as Withnell, so this could be another couple with a missing marriage record.
1836 Jane Smith 1858 Amelia Mather Amelia or "Emilia" 1860 Thomas Mather 1865 Miles Mather 1803 - >1871 Ann Marsden 68 68 Ann was born in France (1851 census) 1824 Charlotte Mather In 1840  Charlotte Mather, probably this had an illegitimate daughter Elizabetrh then died an infant.

In 1841, Charlotte Mather was 17 and living in Halliwell

In 1851, Charlotte was missing.  She may have been married to Jeremiah Gregory from Heaton.  Charlotte Gregory was 29 and a weaver from Halliwell, and Charlotte was the daughter of Charles Hornby, so perhaps only living with the Mather family as a maid in 1841.

In 1859, It was another Charlotte (born 1821, Wigan) that married William Platt at Bolton All Saints and later lived in L.B.
1827 Margaret Mather Margaret married the boy next door; James Crompton, son of John in 1847.

1832 - 1850 Thomas Mather 18 18 Between 1841 and 1851, Thomas had left home and probably died.

In Sept 1850, Thomas son of Richard died, aged 18, and is buried at Deane. There are no marriages that match, so perhaps it was a shot-gun-wedding that went wrong!
1836 Miles Mather In 1851, Miles was born Withnell, but the family had moved to Colliers Row, Westhoughton and became a mining family.  His mother was French.

Miles (who could sign his name) married Ann Warburton in 1858. They appear to have adopted a son James Kay, probably Ann nephew.

Richard and Ann (who was French) started their married life at Withnell, where Richard was born.  They moved to Westhoughton about 1836, before Sarah was born.

In 1841, Richard (an Ag. Labourer) and Ann (both 40) were at New Collier Row, Halliwell.  Charlotte, Margaret and Betty (17,14,11) were cotton doublers and there was also children Thomas, Robert, Miles and Sarah.

In 1881, Richard (84), now a gardners labourer and widowed, is still with his single daughter Betsy (50, born Withnell) at Halliwell. Richard has his place of birth as Tunstall, Staffordshire (which should be his grandaughter).
~1826 James Crompton James was the son of John Crompton and Ann, both (coal) miners, of Westhoughton, Halliwell.  In 1841 the two families were neighbours at New Colliers Row (Westhoughton) in Halliwell. 1840 - 1877 Betsy Jane Tonge 37 37 1868 - 1925 Alfred Mather 57 57 In 1871, Alfred (3) was living with his grandparents Ralph and Susannah Tong (67 & 59) and mother Betsy Mather (30) in Halliwell. 1803 Margaret Mather 1792 - 1816 Robert Mather 23 23 1849 Ann Crompton In 1871, Ann Crompton (20) was with her grandparents.
