There are no other 1838/39 registrations for Thomas, or for a mother Charlton (birth or marriage).  This is unexplained with missing birth registration in 1838 and an extra one in 1839.

There is no Birth registration for Mary Mather.  Maybe she is Mary Butterworth (MMN = CRABRETT), adopted into this family.

There is a birth registered for Mary Mather (MMN = RYDER) with no apparant 1841 census record.  This could be her.

James Mather (45) may be the oldest son.

28 Oct 1839, Henry a Whister, son of Robert Mather a weaver married Mary Hall, daughter of John Hall, a Stone Mason.  James Mather was witness.

In 1841 Henry and Mary (both 20) were at Baldingstone, Walmersley, Bury with daughter Esther (10 mo) and Mary's parents John and Alice Hall (both 45).

Mary (i.e. not Sarah) died North Bury in 1866, aged 3.
1877 Rachel Mather 1870 Betsy Mather 1867 Martha Mather 1838 - 1838 James Mather 3m 3m There is not enough space for a James born to James and Sarah, so James must be Samuel & Ann's son. 1845 Edward Mather 1854 - 1854 Alfred Mather 2m 2m Since Alfred's birth was registered at Noth Bury he was most likely a son of Samuel and Ann (as opposed to James Mather and Sarah Butterworth who used the Bury South Office from 1850). 1853 - 1868 Samuel Mather 15 15 Births of Edmund and David, confirmd sons of James and Sarah were registered in South Bury.  Since Samuel's birth was also registered here, it is assumed he was another son.

Samuel is missing in 1861

In 1841, Wiliam (8) and Mary (11) were with their father George Mather (30) a Tinplate worker at Chapel Lane, Wigan.
