Who is the Catherine Mather (wid) who married James Lepsom (wid) in 1821 ? Who are the Pilkington and Crooks with Catherine in 1841 ? Catherine Pilkington married William Mather 31-July-1816 (witness Susannah Nutter) Family at Waterloo (near the Mathers) in 1841. William died in Sharples, so related maybe !!! Francis and Mary (pre-1837) b. Derbyshire and Stockport. Later Mathers born in Haslingden 1837 - 1860 (all the Mathers registered there). Eliza (mother) from Derbyshire, Head in 1861 at Newchurch, Haslingden Ann from Haslingden married John Mather b.1782 of L.B.

Living together in 1841 Relative of: Illigitimate daughter of Elizabeth Woods Lives with: Elizabeth (3mo) lived with her grandparents in 1841 Lives with: In 1851, after James had died, Elizabeth Mather lived with her mother Martha at Bedford Row, Turton Neighbor: In 1841, John and Henry were nearby at Butterworths and Bedford Row, Turton.

It was probably this John Mather (55, labourer) at Butterworths, Turton labouring for Benjamin and Sarah Mayoh, farmers. 
Butterworths is NE of Bedford Row, Egerton where his brother Henry and family were living. Lives with: Ann and her mother probably lived with William Mather.  They are both recorded as living at Lower Lane, Haslingden. Relative of: John Wood has a 8cM DNA match to me (and other Mather connections) and it must be via this John Wood of Astley Bridge born Q1/1849, since John Wood emigrated to Australia and married there.  The GRO record shows his mother as SINGLETON and there are WOOD+SINGLETON births from 1838 (and before) to 1843 in Halliwell, and then untill 1853 in Sharples. Know each other: Possible brothers as both from Hayfield and both lived in Haslingden district. Lives with: In 1851, Alice (23, dau-in-law) was staying with William and Fanny Roberts (her mother) at Newchurch. 1792 - 1819 Nanny Mather 27 27 Another Nanny Mather 1787 - 1858 Ann Coup 71 71 ~1798 - 1859 Mary Chadwick 61 61 Charles's birth shows mothers name formerly Chadwick.  However, there is no Mather+Chadwick marriage.  The 1824 marriage to Mary Howarth seems more likely, except this Mary is from Oldham.  Perhpas this is the Mary Chadwick who married Thomas Howarth at Todmorden in 1821.

In 1851, Mary (53, born Wigan) was with William (22, b. Manchester) and Henry and Caroline (20 & 15, mborn Turton) visiting Henry Blackledge at the Cotton Mill in Yorkshire St Paul, East Sculcoates.
1825 - 1848 James Mather 23 23 In 1841, both James Mather and Elizabeth Stevens families were living at Bedford Row, Egerton.

27 April 1845, James Mather, spinner of Egerton, son of Henry Mather, a Dyer married Elizabeth Stevens, daughter of Joseph Stevens at St. Peter, Bolton

By 1851, James hed died.  The only death registered is at Tottington, North Bury in 1848.  By 1851, Elizabeth was back with her mother at Turton Row.
1827 William Mather There are 5 Williams of this age from Bolton on the 1841 census.

In 1851, Mary (53), William, Henry and Caroline (22, 20 & 15) were visiting Henry Blackledge (40) in East Sculcoates, Yorkshire.
1829 Henry Mather In 1851, Henry ("Hy", 20, Married) was with his mother Mary Mather (53) and two siblings visiting Henry Blackledge (40) at East Sculcoates, Yorkshire.

The Henry, son of Hanry that married in Deane in 1862 is another, a miner from Little Hulton.
1835 Caroline Mather In 1851, Mary (53), William, Henry and Caroline (22, 20 & 15) were visiting Henry Blackledge (40) in East Sculcoates, Yorkshire. 1775 - 1855 Catherine Pilkington 80 80 In 1841, Catherine Jepson (65) was in Waterloo, Little Bolton. She has Ann, Betty and Edward Pilkington (33 & 14 & 4) with her, as well as Nehemiah Crook, Fanny Crook (nee Piklington) and Joseph Crook (45 & 40 & 20).  Sarah Mather (35) with Ann and John (10 & 1) and Thomas and Mary Grundy were about 4 doors away, Samuel and Alice Mather and family were another 6 doors further on. 1771 - 1833 James Jepson 62 62 ~1771 Betty Midwood ~1800 Fanny Pilkington 1794 - 1869 Nehemiah Crook 75 75 Nehemiah died in the Union Workhouse, St James New Bury in 1869 1820 Joseph Crook 1800 - 1820 Ann Rosthorn 20 20 1753 Thomas Mather From Town, Haslingden in 1753 when baptised.

Thomas's parents later lived at Lower Lane, Haslingden, and this is where he was living in 1778 when son William was baptised.  His siblings William and Anne were also at Lower Lane when their children were baptised in 1872 and 1875.
1755 Ann (Nancy) Tunnadine From Haslingden in 1778 when son William was baptised.

Nancy was originally a diminutive form of Anne or Ann, so Nancy may be Ann (as no Thomas and Nancy marriage).
1723 - 1790 Abraham Mather 67 67 Abraham was born 1723 at Church Hill, Haslingden, son of John a feltmaker and Martha.

Another Abraham Mather married Grace at Great Harwood (7 miles NNW)  19 July 1746. It cant be this Abraham, as the baptism records of his children (starting 1744) name the mother as Ann.

In 1775, Sarah, daughter of Abraham and Lydia (not Ann) was born. It must be the same Abraham as abode is Lower Lane, Haslingden, and Abraham's son Abraham is too young to be a father. There is no record of a marriage or death of Lydia, so it is assumed Lydia and wife Ann are the same person.

In 1790, Anne and Abraham (of Town) both died in April, two weeks appart
~1726 - 1790 Anne (Lydia) Barns 64 64 Although known as Anne for most of the Children's baptisms including Abraham's at Lower Lane in 1763, by 1775 Sarah Mather was baptised "Daughter of Abraham Mather & Lydia" of Lower Lane.  Lydia must be Anne.

1755 William Mather William Mather (Madder on the early baptism records) was from Lower Lane (or Town Lane after 1790), Haslingden.

After 1796, the family appear to have moved away from Hasslingden (no marriages or death for any of the children).  They probably stayed nearby in Turton where Henry is buried.

William possibly died in Droylsden, Manchester (about 20 miles South of Haslingden).
1750 - 1753 Abraham Mather 3 3 1744 - 1745 John Mather 1 1 1763 Abraham Mather The Abraham that died in 1775 was born 1774, the son of Abraham and Alice (not Anne), so a different person.

Possibly moved to Droysted, Manchester and married Elizabeth Swindells in 15 May 1796 (unconfirmed)
1758 Anne Mather Anne of Lower Lane, Haslingden, had a daughter Anne baptised 17 Jan 1782.  No father was named. 1748 James Mather 1755 - 1831 Margaret (Peggy) Ashworth 76 76 Margaet was the daughter of Elizabeth Ashworth, a spinster of Cribben-side, Haslingden and Samuel Whitley, a Mason of Saddleworth.

Margaret married William Mather in 1756.  However, they had no children baptised and it appears William left her.

Margared Ashworth (not Mather) was buried in Haslingden in 1831, aged 77.
1778 - 1819 William Mather 41 41 This is probably the William Mather on the 1811 Little Bolton Poor Assessment List, with a rented house at "Bottams" (possibly Turton Bottoms)

William, son to Thomas and Nancy Mather was baptised at Haslingden
~1690 - 1756 John (Old Hatter) Mather 66 66 Before 1723, there are no marriage or baptism records for John.  It is likely he married Martha had a son John baptised elsewhere (possibly Bury or Bolton).

In 1729 (indexed 1730), when James was baptised the record shows John was a Hatter.

In 1739 (if Martha had died) John remarried Mary Fielding. However there is a death record for Martha in 1749.  Therefore it is likely to be John's son and both are hatters.

In Dec 1756, John, a labourer (aka The Old Hatter) of Haslingden died.
~1700 - 1749 Martha Mather 49 49 1725 Thomas Mather 1793 - 1794 Nancy Mather 1 1 1787 John Mather This is not the John Mather at Butterworths, Turton in 1841 & 1851 1785 Thomas Mather 1780 Anne Mather 1790 Abraham Mather In 1790, Abraham was born at Haslingden.  The family then moved elsewhere.

In 1821, Abraham Mather, weaver, may have married Martha Blackshaw at Manchester Cathederal.  Later, in 1832, Abraham Mather, Widower, a Slater may have married Mary Aldridge at Manchester Cathederal.

Abraham may have had a daughter Sarah (of Sherfin Nook) who married Richard Story 4 Sep 1837.
1777 Elizabeth (Betty) Mather Betty was probably poor as in the Workhouse (which can act as a hospital) when Nancy (and possibly Peggy) baptised. 1782 James Mather ~1777 <unknown> 1798 - 1873 Nancy Mather 75 75 Nancy, daughter of Betty Mather of Workhouse was born 1799 and baptised at Aiinsworth.  This could be Elizabeth's child. 1799 William Woods Befor the 1841 census, William and Nancy Woods were at Sheep Green, Haslingden.  William was a Mason or a Mason's labourer or most often simply a labourer.

In 1841, William and Nancy (both 40) where at Rake Foot, Haslingden with Betty (21), Margaret (16), Mary Ann (10), John (6), and Susannah (3 and/or 9mo).

In 1851, William and Nancy (50 & 50) were lodgers at Shop Green, Haslingden with Samuel and Betty Brooks
1829 Peggy (Margaret) Woods 1838 Susannah Woods Susannah was an illegitimate child of Nancy Woods 1822 Betty Woods 1835 John Woods 1834 - 1834 Thomas Woods 1m 1m Thomas was the third Thomas baptised (they all died as infants) 1840 Susannah Woods 1848 - 1849 Henry Mather 11m 11m 1850 - 1940 Harriet Mather 89 89 In 1881 and 1891, Harriet was still singlke, still with her mother Eliza and sister Charlotte in Glossop Dale, Derbyshire 1852 - 1856 Samuel Mather 3 3 1852 - 1906 Charlotte Mather 53 53 1857 - 1938 Eliza Mather 81 81 1823 - 1856 John Mather 33 33 Son Francis's birth was registered at Hayfield, Derbyshire in 1845.  Therefore, the June 1884 marriage there between a MATHER and Elizs is likely to be this person, ie. John Mather.

In Q2/1844, John Mather married Eliza Platt at Hayfield, Derbyshire.
1815 - 1892 Eliza Platt 77 77 Father Anthony Platt, Joiner

In 1861, Eliza (46, born Marple Bridge) was living in Newchurch, Haslingden with Francis (16), Mary (14), Harriot (10), Charlotte (8) and Eliza (4)
1846 Mary Mather 1845 - 1922 Francis Mather 77 77 1857 - 1933 William Coxon 76 76 1853 Henry Hodge 1851 - 1938 Joseph Dawson 87 87 1856 - 1930 Eliza Ann Ellis 74 74 1832 - 1834 Charles Mather 1 1 Charles Mather of Morton Row, Turton is buried at Walmsley Chapel (Presbyterian), aged 1yr and 11 months. 1826 Elizabeth Stevens Stevens when married in 1845, but Stephens when the childrens births were registered (1845-46)

In 1841, Elizabeth was a Bedford Row, Egerton, Turton with her parents Joseph and Martha and 5 siblings. The census  suggests she may have had a brother William married to Charlotte with a daughter Elizabeth Stevens (2mo).  The family were not from Lancashire.

By 1851, Elizabeth Mather, 25 was a Widow, living with her mother Martha. She had no children.

In 1861, Elizabeth had married James Rothwell, and they had a daughter Elizabeth (3).  They were living with Elizabeth's mother at 236 Halliwell Road, Little Bolton.
1845 - 1845 Henry Mather 1846 - 1849 Emily Mather 3 3 1796 - 1849 Joseph Stevens 53 53 In 1841 Joseph and Martha (both 45) were at Bedford Row, Egerton, Turton with their extended family.  Only their Grandaughter Elizabeth (2 months) was from Lancashire.

1795 - 1875 Martha Stevens 80 80 In 1841 Joseph and Martha (both 45) were at Bedford Row, Egerton, Turton with their extended family.  Only their Grandaughter Elizabeth (2 months) was from Lancashire.

In 1851, Martha Stevens was Head, Wid, 58, still at Bedford Row, Turton with Eden (26), Elizabeth Mather (24), Henry (22) and Richard (19).  The family were from Bredlow, Buckinghamshire.
1819 William Stevens 1824 - 1881 Eden Stevens 57 57 Eden married Mary Broadhurst at Manchester Cathederal 1827 Thomas Stevens 1828 Henry Stevens 1832 Richard Stevens 1821 John Stevens 1819 Charlotte Chisnall 1841 Elizabeth Stevens 1835 James Rothwell James's father was Buckley Rothwell. James and his father were both Stone Masons 1857 Elizabeth Rothwell 1797 - 1843 Henry Mather 45 45 Henry was from Haslingden and may have lived in  Manchester which is where he probably married Mary and is where son WIlliam was born.

In 1832, Henry and Mary had a son Charles baptisd at Walmsley, Turton, abode "Top of the Lane".  Charles died in 1834, aged 1yr, 11mo abode "Morton Row, Turton".

In 1841, Henry and Mary (both 40) were at Bedford Row, Egerton, Turton with with James (15), William (14), Henry (12) and Caroline (5). 

WARNING: in 1841, there ia also Henry, a Dyer, and Mary (both 40) at Reicmond Street, Regent Road, Salford.

They appear to be a family, but no Bolton marriage exists so probably married at Prestwich on 23 May 1824.

~1730 Alice Cowp 30 Jan 1830, James Mather married Alice, both of Haslingden.  Is she also a Mather?  Other spouses include maiden name, but only "Alice" is shown for James's wife on the Bishop's Transcript.  One the Parish record however, she is Alice Cowp. 1752 Mary Mather 1756 Martha Mather 1760 Alice Mather 1762 - 1829 James Mather 67 67 ~1720 Mary Fielding 1720 John Mather John's father, also John was also a hatter, known as "The Old Hatter" so perhaps this John was "The Young Hatter".

15 May 1739, John married Mary Fielding.  They has a son John baptised 24 Feb 1740 when living at Lower Water Foot. 
1739 John Mather 28 Aug 1775, This John Mather possibly married Anne Spencer at Haslingden. 

The following month there is a baptism for John, son of John and Alice of Higher Lane, Haslingden.  This may be John Mather (Widower from Ratcliffe) who married Alice Bridge at Bury in 1762 (and died in 1788)
1730 - 1754 Isabel Barns 23 23 Isabel was born and baptised in 1830 at Haslingden, the daighter of Henry Barnes of Slats.  Her mother was probably Anne (as an earlier Isabel was baptised in 1725).

In 1752, Isabel had an illegitimate child, Henry, named after her father.  James Mather was the father.

May 1754, Isobel Barnes, Spinster died at Haslingden.

Another Isobel Barns of Haslingden married John Kay 1 Aug 1754 at St James, Haslingden, so perhaps this Isobel (with a son Henry) survived.  However, there was consent of parents to this other isobel was a minor.
1752 Henry Barns Baptised 10 Jan 1752, Henry Barns was the illegitimate son of Isabel Barns, a spinster and James Mather of Haslingden.

The same month as Henry was baptised, James Mather married  Alice Cowp. 

May 1753, Henry's mother Isabel Barnes, spinster of Higher Sherfin died.
<unknown> 1782 Ann Mather Ann was the illegitimate daughter of Ann Mather from Lower Lane, Haslingden, born Jan 1782 1775 Sarah Mather In 1775, Sarah, daughter of Abraham and Lydia (not Anne) was born. It must be the same Abraham as abode is Lower Lane, Haslingden, and Abraham's son Abraham is too young to be a father.

There is no record of a marriage or death of Lydia, so it is possible Lydia and wife Anne are the same person.  Otherwise Sarah may be an illegitimate child of Abraham and a younder woman, Lydia.
~1800 - 1802 Peggy Mather 2 2 ~1770 - 1803 Edmund Mather 33 33 In Mar 1803, Edmund Mather (or Madder), Newhouse, Rossendale died and was buried as Haslingden.  4 days earlier, Betty, daughter of Abraham Mather of Newhouse was also buried.

There was also an Edmund Mather (1796-1830) from Rossendale which is assumed to be his son, or this is simply another family from Rossendale (possibly a son of Robert from Brindle).
1774 - 1846 Melicent Ashworth 72 72 Melicent Ashworth was baptised in 1774, the daughter of "Jhn" and Betty Ashworth of Blacklayn Head Hennards.

In 1796, Melicent married Edmund Madder (or Mather) of Lower Booths at Haslingden.

In 1803, Edmund died and in 1806 Melicent of Lower Booths married Thomas Howarth at Haslingden.

1821 Elizabeth Mather In 1841, Elizabeth (20) was with her mother Fanny (45) at Clough Lane, Newchurch.

In 1844, Elizabeth Mather, daughter of Edmund married Henry Taylor at Newchurch in Rossendale.

In 1851, Henry and Elizabeth Taylor (33 & 30)  were at Rossendale, Haslingden with Elizabeth Ann (2).

In 1861, Henry and Elizabeth Taylor (42 & 39) were at Rossendale, Haslingden with Elizabeth A (12), James (10), Edmund (8) and Alice (5).
1818 Henry Taylor In 1851, Henry and Elizabeth Taylor (33 & 30)  were at Rossendale, Haslingden with Elizabeth Ann (2).

In 1861, Henry and Elizabeth Taylor (42 & 39) were at Rossendale, Haslingden with Elizabeth A (12), James (10), Edmund (8) and Alice (5).
1848 Elizabeth Ann Taylor 1794 Frances (Fanny) Holt In 1841, Fanny Mather (45) was in Clough Lane, Newchurch with Elizabeth (20), James (16) and Alice (13).

In 1851, William and Fanny Roberts (58 & 56) were at Newchurch with Alice Mather (23) and Thomas Haman (58)
1825 - 1871 James Mather 46 46 In 1841, James (15) was with his mother Fanny (45) at Clough Lane, Newchurch.

In 1851, James and Jane Mather (26 & 25) were at Baltic, Newchurch, Haslingden (no children).

In 1861, James and Jane Mather (35 and 35) were in Cowpe, Rossendale, Haslingden (no children).

In 1871, Jane was a widow.
1828 Alice Mather In 1841, Alice (13) was with her mother Fanny (45) at Clough Lane, Newchurch.

In 1851, Alice 23 was with her mother Fanny (45) and step-father William at Long Holm Buildings, Newchurch.

In 1861, Alice was a servant in Bury, aged 33, born Rossendale, for Richard Kay

In 1863, Alice Mather (35) married John Pilling at St Mary's, Bury.  They already has a son William Pilling, but it's not clear if thios was Alice's child.

In 1871, John and Alice Pilling (44 & 43) were in South Bury, Lancashire with son William (10), James Pilling (70, father) and Fanny Lomax (8), a boarder.
1823 - 1824 Edmund Mather 1 1 In 1841, Edmund was not with his family (Mother and siblings). He had died in 1824, aged 1. 1793 William Roberts 1827 Jane Hardman
In 1851, James and Jane Mather (26 & 25) were at Baltic, Newchurch, Haslingden (no children).

In 1861, James and Jane Mather (35 and 35) were in Rossendale, Haslingden (no children).

In 1871, Jane Mather (45, Wid) was visiting Mary Taylor (37) a housekeeper at Newchurch.
1866 Frances Ellen Taylor 1853 Edmund Taylor 1856 Alice Taylor 1851 James Taylor 1763 Mary Mather ~1777 - 1778 John Mather 1 1 1744 Hannah Howarth D. 1777 Thomas Mather 1729 - 1794 James Mather 65 65 10 Jan 1852, Isabel Barnes and James Mather of Holden had a child Henry Barnes baptised at Haslingden.

30 Jan 1752 (or 1751), James Mather married Alice Cowp at Haslingden.  This was just 3 weeks after his illegitimate son Henry Mather was baptised.  The son was baptised Mather, even though they were not married, so maybe Alice too him in as hers!

1752-1760, James was a weaver at Under Hutchbank when Mary and Alice were baptised.  By 1762 he was at Troy in the Grange.

James was a widower when he married Hannah Howarth.  The only other "Manchester" marriage within 10 years for James is for Esther Mason, the previous year, but this isnt it.  James and Esther continued to have their family in over Darwen past the 1762 second marriage.  The 1752 Haslingden marriage of James Mather and Alice Cowp is therefore another option.

James and Hannah's daughter Mary was baptised at Bank Street, and the abode is recorded as Turton.  This indicated James is of the Turton Presbyterian Mather family.

3 entries for Great Bolton Land Tax (possible for three different people):
1) James Mather (tenant) paid 2d (about the smallest possible sum) Land Tax in 1798 (page 363)
2) Ja Mather (with Jn'o Yates, Ann Haydock and Robert Roberts paid 3d each to William Seddon, Hollins Hey (page 373)
3) Ja's Mather paid 1d (with others) to Jon'n Bowher (page 394)
1813 - 1886 John Wood 73 73 In 1835, John married Martha Singleton at St Mary's, Deane.

In 1841, John and Martha (both 30) ware at Halliwell with daughter Amelia (1)

1812 - 1878 Martha Singleton 66 66 In 1871, Martha Wood (58 and married) was with her youngest; Joseph (20) and Hannah (18). Husband John was missing. 1838 James Wood James may have died an infant, as he wasnt with his parents in 1841. 1840 Amelia Wood First daughter, Amelia named after her mother's close sister, Amelia Singleton. 1845 Thomas Wood 1847 Mary Wood 1849 John Wood John emigrated to Australia, and married his wife Martha Marten Traynot (1854-1916) in Maldon, Victoria 10 April 1873.

Their son Joseph Alexander Wood, known as Joe, (1878-1950)  is the grandgather of john Wood, whom I have a DNA match with. The DNA must surely come from the Lancashire Woods (as other closer relatives are Australian).
1850 Joseph Wood 1853 Hannah Wood 1784 - 1852 Isaac Wood 68 68 In 1807, Isaac Wood, Whelwright of Leigh married Esther Grundy at Leigh St Mary.
