and lived in Chorley Street 1815 - 1865 John Mather 49 49 John and Ellen are my 2x Great Grandparents.  I.e. John is my great great grandfather.  John was a baptist, and probably attended Moor Street Chapel, although he later married Elizabeth Kay at Dukes Alley Chapel.

After he married Ellen, he stayed at their family home at Crook Street (1838 when Benjamin born and 1843 when wife Ellen died), although his family house was at Blackburn Street.

In 1841, John (25) was living with Ellen (20) and son Joseph (1) at Blackburn Street, Little Bolton (not with parents), working as a Cotton Spinner.

In 1843, John was living at Coopers Square, Little Bolton (on Wedding certificate).  The newspapers reported John Mather of Little Bolton marrying Miss Elizabeth Kay of Halliwell.

Between 1844 and 1854, John and Elizbeth had 6 more children, all registered at Little Bolton. Elizabeth Mather registered in 1841 is another family (Joshua Mather and Elizabeth Kay) also in Little Bolton.

In 1851, John was living at 58 Chorley St., Bolton (a labourer at the Iron Works, age 35) with new wife Elizabeth (32) and son Joseph (11), Hannah (6), Samuel (4), Margaret (2) and Sarah A (8mo)

Samuel Mather confirmed as father on marriage certificate.  Making a fair assumption that Isaac Mather (the only other Mather family living in Little Bolton in 1851) is a brother.  Isaacs father is also known to be Samuel.

John the Shopkeeper is another.  James Mather of Water St, son of John, a Shopkeeper married Martha Bently 26 Aug 1840. This cannot be the same person, but could be two shopkeepers!.

In 1856, John was a witness to younger brother George's marriage to Mary Marsh. Both could sign their names.

In 1861, John and Elizabeth (45 and 43) are at 114 Chorley Street with their children Joseph (21), Hannah (16), Samuel (14), Margaret (12), Sarah (10), John (8) and Ruth (6).

In 1864, John of 114 Chorley Street died.

~1821 Mary Mather Mary was still with her father in 1841. 1814 Luke Mather 1819 Joseph Mather Joseph was no longer with his father in 1841. 1812 Jacob Mather Jacob was missing from the 1841 census. 1836 - 1875 Luke Mather 39 39 Luke, in Chorlton, in 1851, son of William and Mary.  He must be related to the other Luke Mather.  Both died in Hulme.  Also, Grace died Prestwich just 4 years befor this 1851 census.

Luke married Mary.
1717 Thomas Mather Thomas may have married Mary and was a clay potter in Prescott before he moved to Tong. ~1730 - 1781 Christian Haslam 51 51 Christiana or Christian Mather nee Haslam ~1766 - 1766 James Mather 1761 Anne Mather Anne was Baptised at Bank Street Unitarian.

13 Jan 1806, Ann Mather may have married Richard Greenhalgh, or 20 Oct 1806 Richard Morris.  However, she would have been aged about 45 !

1789 - 1814 Thomas Mather 25 25 Did Thomas marry?  All 5 Thomas Mather marriages at Bolton between 1806 and 1830 are accounted for.  The "obvious" 1810 marriage to Ann Holt is a Blackrod family, and the others are after 1822.

There is a perfect match for the death of Thomas Mather of Great Bolton, aged 25 in May 1814.  Therefore, it appears he never married.

1785 - 1855 Alice Mather 70 70 In 1819, Alice married Thomas Jones.

In 1841, Alice and James (both listed as 55 although Alice is before James as older) were with their mother Betty (82) at Cannon Street, Bolton.

In 1851, it appears Alice Jones (nee Mather) did marry, but probably had no children. She is house servant to her brother James, still at Cannon Street.
1800 - 1859 William Mather 59 59 WARNING - May have the wrong marriage as Catherine Pikiington in 1816 is also a good fit.  This was a double wedding of William and Richard, possible brothers.

In 1851 the grandchildren were with Peter Smith and Betty had gone, presumed died.
<unknown> 1810 - <1851 Jane (Jenny) Collinge 41 41 In 1841, Jane Haslam was 25 living with Peter and Betty Smith at Farnworth.  She had her four children with her, the youngest being Betty, born 1839.  Betty Haslam's Farnworth birth record reveals the mother's (Jane) maiden name as COLLINGE.  Also, assuming she was recently widowed, the only male Haslam death in Farnworth was Nathan Haslam in 1839, aged 30.  Their 1829 Farnworth marriage confirms this family line.  Baptism records show the family lived in Kearsley.

Jane (also known as Jenny when Mary baptised) imay have remarried (civil marriage). There are no indexed (CoE) marriages with the father named as Collinge or Collins. However, in 1851, the ghildren were with their grandfather Peter Smith so its also likely she had died.
1809 - 1839 Nathan Haslam 30 30 Nathan was "the son of Lawrence Haslam (-1829) of Kersley and Betty (1772-1846) his wife"

All of Nathan's children's baptisms show Nathas was a Collier living at Kearsley (1829 to 1839).
1831 - 1879 David Haslam 48 48 19 Oct 1851, David married Elizabeth Raines at Farnworth 1833 Mary Ann Haslam Known as Mary (1841), although baptised Mary Ann. 1835 Thomas Haslam 1839 - 1889 Betty Haslam 50 50 Betty was the last child.  There are no more HASLAM+COLLINGE birth registrations after 1839 D. 1826 Jemima Statham April 1826, Jemima was buried the same day her two daughters Mary and Jemima were baptised. 1829 - 1829 Peter Haslam 21d 21d Pater was not with his mother Jane in 1841. He must have died. The burial shows he died, aged just 3 weeks. Samuel Mather 15 Mar 1819, Samuel Mather, Gentleman of Manchester married Elizabeth Howarth. 1820 Margaret Smith 1822 - 1856 Jemima Smith 34 34 4 July 1841, Jemimah Smith, daughter of Perer a Cordwainer,  married William Pugh Probert 1824 Mary Smith ~1790 - 1818 Ellen Grundy 28 28 15 April 1811, "Peter Smith of this Parish (Farnworth) Shoe Maker & Ellen Grundy of the same spinster were married in this chapel by Banns."

Ellen wife of Peter Smith of Farnworth and Bolton, Shoe maker must have died as he married again in 1819

In 1841, Ellen and Peter Smith Shoe Maker (both 50) are at Prescot, St. Helens.  This must be another couple as Peter Smith Shoe maker married Jemima in 1819.
1807 Ann Smith Ann daughter of Peter & Ellen Smith of Farnworth was baptised 12 April 1807 (but parents didnt marry until 1811) 1808 - 1894 Charles Ambro Stephenson 86 86 Charles was born in born Graystoke, Cumberland

In 1841, Charles (a Joiner) and Elizabeth Stephenson (both 30) had Jane and Ann (5 & 1).  Isaac and John Stephenson (20 & 15) were probable brothers.

In 1851, Charles A Stephenson and Elizabeth (43 & 40) were in Everton, Liverpool with Jane, Ann, John and Charles (14, 10, 8 & 6).  Thomas Mather (30, Joiner, b.Bolton) was visiting.
1811 - 1875 Elizabeth Mather 64 64 Elizabeth was born in Wigan and lived in Liverpool after she was married.  There is no evidence to suggest she is related.

In 1833, when Charles married Elizabeth he was living in the parish of Farnworth and Elizabeth in Bolton.  She probably had a brother Thomas born Bolton about 1821 (who was with her in 1851)

In 1841, Charles (a Joiner) and Elizabeth Stephenson (both 30) had Jane and Ann (5 & 1).  Isaac and John Stephenson (20 & 15) were probable brothers.

In 1851, Charles A Stephenson and Elizabeth (43 & 40) were in Everton, Liverpool with Jane, Ann, John and Charles (14, 10, 8 & 6).  Thomas Mather (30, Joiner, b.Bolton) was visiting.
1809 - 1859 William Hilton 50 50 In 1841, William, a Clogger, and Elizabeth (both 30) were at Derby Street, East Bolton with Sarah (6), Mary (4) and Esther (1).

In 1851, William and Elizabeth (42 & 40) were at Weston Street, E Bolton with 7 daughters.  No wonder he was a clogger!
1821 Thomas Mather In 1851, Thomas (30), a Joiner was visiting (assumed) sister Elizabeth Stephenson in Everton. 1836 Jane Stephenson 1840 Ann Stephenson 1843 John Stephenson 1845 Charles Stephenson 1840 Esther Hilton In 1881, Esther, aged 41, was still with her mother (69) 1842 Elizabeth Hilton 1844 Hannah Hilton 1847 - 1855 Martha Hilton 8 8 Missing in 1861.  Had died in 1855, aged 8 1850 Charlotte Hilton 1834 Sarah Hilton 1837 Mary Hilton Mary was aged 4 in 1841, aged 13 in 1851 and missing by 1861.   She does not appear to have died. There are 7 possible marriages between 1856 and 1861 (6 non-conformist/registry office) which may be her.
1813 - 1857 James Mather 44 44 Who was this James that died in 1857 in W Bolton, aged 44?

It cant be the James b.1813 who married Margaret Stockton as he was still alve, living in Sharples in 1861.  He must be the daughter of James and Sarah (or illigitimate son of Ann Mather).
1791 - 1842 William Mather 51 51 A William Mather died in Little Bolton in 1842 but who is he?  Is he related to our L.B. Mather family?

From the 1841 census (Barlow Row, L.B.) it appears that William and Jane (both 45) are husband and wife, with Helen (15) and James (8).  However, there is no marriage for such.  Instead, there are probably cousins - tbc.

William died in 1842, aged 50 so was born about 1792. The closest matching Bolton baptisms, is for son of James and Sarah.  This fits will with his children's names.

William married Catherine, but she died in 1834 so William's children were brought up by him and "Jane".  Wow is Jane Mather related?
1810 - 1862 Esther Dewhurst 52 52 In 1841, William and Esther (both 30) were in Rothwell Street, East Bolton with Alice, Sarah and Ann (8, 5 & 3).

In 1851, William and Esther (43 & 41) were at 15 Rothwell Street with Sarah (16), Ann (14), Ellen (10), Mary (7), W'm (4) and Jane (1).

In 1861, William and Esther (53 & 51) were at 41 Rothwell Street, E Bolton with Ann (24), Ellen (18), Mary (16), Jane (11), Betsy (7) and William (4).  Neighbours at 43 Rothwell road were James and Ann Dewhurst and family, possibly Esther's brother.
1835 Sarah Mather 1833 Alice Mather Alice was aged 8 in 1841, living in Rothwell Street but missing in 1851 (not died, so probably in service).

In 1861, Alice and Richard Townley, a cotton spinnter, were in Bolton with 3 children.

In 1871, Alice Townley (wid, 37) still had her two daughters, Niece Esther Ellen Mather (7) and nephew Thomas Mather (2).
1837 Ann Mather Ann had an illegitimate daughter Esther Ellen Mather 1840 - 1840 Ellen Mather 1841 Ellen Mather 9 March 1868, Ellen Mather married Israel Edge at Fletcher Street Wesleyan Methodist Chapel.  Her sister Mary and Benjamin Marsh were witness.  1844 Mary Mather 1847 - 1859 William Mather 12 12 William was missing in 1861.  Another william, aged 4 was on the census.  However, this William did not die until 1859. 1849 Jane Mather 2 June 1871, James Knowles, weaver at Regent Street, Halliwell, son of William married Jane Mather, daughter of William Mather, a weaver.  Both were of full age.

In 1901, Jane (50) was a widow at 45 Clarendon Street, Boltonwith her 4 sons and married daughter Esther A Rothwell.
1852 - 1852 John Mather John was missing in 1861 1854 Elizabeth (Betsy) Mather In 1861, Betsy (7) was with family.

In 1871, Betsy (16) was living with her sister Alice Townley
1857 William Mather In 1861, William (4) was with parents William and Esther and family.  However, he cant be their son as they already had as William (died 1859) and there is no birth registered gor William son of MATHER+DEWHURST.  He appears to be an illegitimate chail, possibly their grandson.
1767 - 1854 Alice Mort (Toppings) 87 87 In 1851, Alice Toppings (84) was Henry Mather's mother-in-law, living with the family at Little Hulton.  She is also refered to as "Alice Mort Topping", mother of Henry Mather (on FindAGrave website)
1814 George Mather In 1838, Mary Mather, daughter of John Mather of Derby Street married George Yates.

In 1841, John Mather (65), George Mather (25) and Frederic Fish (20) were at Derby Street, East Bolton. A DUPLICATE George !!!
<unknown> 1864 - 1939 Esther Ellen Mather 75 75 In 1871, Esther Ellen (7) and Thomas Mather (2) were with their Aunt Alice Townley. 1861 George Heald 1831 - <1871 Richard Townley 40 40 1852 Esther Townley 1854 Ann Townley 1860 William Townley 1869 Thomas Mather In 1871, Esther Ellen (7) and Thomas Mather (2) were with their Aunt Alice Townley. John Young James Topping 1774 - 1842 John Mather 68 68 John Son of Ann Eckersley of Kersley (SE Bolton between Farnworth and Clifton) by John Mather, baptised at Ringley (1 mile East on the other side of the River Irwell).

NOTE: Assume to be the John Mather & Alice Gore family (as DOB matches).

In 1841, John Mather (65), George Mather (25) and Frederic Fish (20) were at Derby Street, East Bolton

John died in 1842, aged 68 (so born 1774)
1787 - 1858 Ann Coup 71 71 1842 Ann Howcroft Ann was born and baptised in 1842, after her father had died.   Her mother Mary remarried and Ann was probably brought up be her grandparents.

In 1851, Ann Howcroft (aged 9 and a "logger") was living with her grandparents John and Ann (67 & 64)

In 1865, Ann married John Southern
1845 Elizabeth Guest 1817 - 1843 John Mather Orrell 26 26 John Mather Orrell was an illegitimate child, the son of Martha Orrell of Great Bolton, and the father assumed to be a Mather, possibly Joseph Mather.

Bold Halliwell, John's marriage witness, was from Blackburn Street, Little Bolton, son of Thomas Halliwell, a spade labourer.

John must have died in 1843, as Martha was a widow in 1851 and this is the only young adult death (and had middle initial M).  Therefore the later children with Martha in 1851 must be illegitimate.
1821 Martha Gradwell Martha lived in West Bolton and moved to Little Bolton after John died, about 1846 and before Ellen was born.

In 1851, Martha, aged 30 was a widow at 28 Back Lever Street, Little Bolton with children Joseph (8), Martha (6) and Ellen (3).

In 1861, Martha (41, W) was living with Philip Greenhalgh (68, Wid, Sapde Labourer) at 3 Morris Street, Little Bolton, and with them Joseph (18), Martha (16), Ellen (13) and Christopher (9).
1843 Joseph Orrell

In 1881, Joseph (38) was a widower, living with his mother at 36 Kestor Street, Bolton
1844 - 1888 Martha Orrell 44 44 In 1864, MArtha Orrell married Charles Dunn (Irish) at Bolton RO.

In 1871, Charles and Martha (30 & 26) were at 1 Smithy Street, Little Bolton and had Joseph (3) and Elizabeth (3mo)

In 1881, Charles and Martha (37 & 36) were at 50 Green Street, Little Bolton with Joseph (13), Elizabeth (10), John (6) and Mary (3)

Martha died 1888, aged 43
1846 Parthenia Orrell 1848 Ellen Orrell Ellen married Joseph Baron, a mechanic 1852 - 1914 Christopher Orrell 62 62 2 Aug 1873 Christopher Orrell married Esther Ann Mort at St John's, Bolton.  He recorded his father as Joseph Orrell.

In 1911 Christopher and Esther Ann (59 & 56) were at 26 Thorne St, Little Bolton.
1793 Philip Greenhalgh Philip was living with Martha Orrell in 1861, and Ellen and Christopher (son and dau) are likely to be his children. 1807 - 1865 Elizabeth Mather 58 58 Elizabeth from Lowton had an adult baptism at Winwick in 1820 (aged 12).  She had an infant sister Nancy (b.8-Dec-1819) baptised the same day.

6 Nov 1831, Elizabeth married Peter Hilton (the same day Sarah Mather married Thomas Welsby). This may have been a double marriage as Sarah Mather married the same day.  However, it is now believed thay were not sisters.  Census records show the Elizabeth Mather sister of Sarah was born 1805 in Little Bolton and married Edmund Heaton.

Jan 1832 "Betty" had her daughter Catherine baptised (less than two months after the marriage)

In 1850 and 1861, Elizabeth and Peter (and Elizabeth's mother Grace) were in Racine, Wisconsin, USA.
1803 - 1870 Mary Mather 66 66 No DNA matches to this family, so unsure who's Mary's parents are.  There are a couple of possibilities, but not the Mary of same age that died in 1817, aged 14.  Most likely is daughter of John Mather and Betty Edge, as they had a son John and daughters Bettsy (all died as infants) William Barker In 1825, William Barker (widow) married Mary Mather Mary Mather 1797 - 1876 James Lee 79 79 In 1841, James (a carter) and Mary (both 40) were at Hyde Street, Little Bolton with Mary (14), Catherine (10), Joseph (7) and Margaret (1)

In 1851, James and Mary (53 & 52) were at 9 Hyde Street, Little Bolton with Mary (24), Joseph (17, a cripple), and Margaret (10)

In 1861, James and Mary (64 & 63) were at 4 Hyde Street with Mary (34), Catherine J (30) and Joseph (27).
1799 - 1834 James Rawsthorn 35 35 All children were baptised Rawsthorn, but later adopted the name "Rostron". 1803 - 1854 Mary Ann Mather 51 51 No DNA matches.

1822-24, recorded as Marianne Rasthorn when Thomas and Mary baptised, and later Mary Ann.  All the childrens baptisms show their abode as Breightmet. In 1851, daughter Mary Ann Young recorded her birthplace as Breightmet Hill.

Mary Ann France was 48 in 1851, so born about 1803.  She is probably the daughter of William and Mary Mather, baptised April 1803.  There are no marriages for a William and Mary at Bolton, and her parents are not William Mather and Mary Petty from Billinge, near Wigan, married 31 Oct 1802 as they had a daughter Ann baptised there 12 Dec 1802.  William Mather and Mary Rosthern seems much more likely, married at Warrington 22 Aug 1976.  William and Mary Green from Westhoughton is another family.  William and Mary Clegg married in 1797 is another possibility.

In 1821, Mary Ann Mather married James Rawsthorn at Deane St Mary. 

1 June 1835, Mary Ann Rostron, widow, married Richard France, widower.

In 1841, Richard & Ann (both 40) were with Elizabeth (15), Sarah (13) and Ellen France (5), and Thomas (2), Mary Ann (15), William (13) and Ruth Rostron (7); also three France daughters, two from previous marriage and Ellen (5).

In 1869, (trial 5 July) Mary Ann Rawsthorn (must be another) was imprisoned for larceny.

1787 John Allen John was a weaver when he married Mary.

Alice (1818-1819) is the only child (death) record of parents John and Mary Allen following their marriage.  It shows John a Tapemaker at Collyhurst, so this is probably another family.

There are Martha and David Allen, children of John a weaver and Mary of Hopwood baptised at Prestwich in 1817 and 1820 but this family also had Richard of Prestwich in May 1815 (before the 1816 marriage) so this may also be another family, or possibly Richard was illegitimate or from another family.  There are no Prestwich baptisms before Richard.

In 1841, John a cotton weaver and Mary (both 50) were at Back York Street, Heywood, Bury with David (20) and Arthur (15).

In 1871, Hohn Allen (84, Wid) was livging with his son David Allen, wife Ann (both 50) and family at Newton

In 1861, Joseph (27) was still at Hyde Street.
1840 Margaret Lee 1829 - ~1829 George Lee 1825 Ann Lee No obvious death and burial for Ann, so she may have left home before 1841 1827 Elizabeth Lee 1831 Elizabeth Lee 1795 - 1817 John Mather 22 22 2 March 1817, John Mather, labourer, married Mary McQuire at St. Peter's Bolton.  Marriage (or Mary's cooking!) didnt agree with John.  He was married in March and died in May.

Did John and Mary have a son?  John Mather, son of John  and Mary Mather of Bradshaw died Nov 1825, aged 8 so could be his, although no reference to John deceased or Mary's new married name.  Son John's baptism does confirm John was a labourer.
1817 - 1825 John Mather 8 8 John may be the son of this John and Mary but there is no record on the baptism that his father was deceased, instead a labourer (which John was when he married Mary).  However, it is the only child of John and Mary baptised at Turton around this time. 1825 - 1826 William Rawsthorn 3m 3m 1824 Mary Rosthorn 1822 Thomas Rosthorn 1827 Mary Ann Rosthorn In 1850, Mary A Rostron married William Young at Christ Church, Bolton.
