Ralph (Radnlphi or Radi) Mather from Middle Hulton, Shackerley (by Tyldesley and Atherton) There are 4 Ralph Mather families here. Astley; G.B. and Shackerley. Samuel & Margareta gemini (i.e. twins) were baptised 28 Feb 1674, who cant be a brother and sister so we have two families here; Both John Mather, from Kearsley (this) and Middle Hulton (other).

Work with: In 1911, James and his son James were living away from home in Carmarthenshire, both working as Surface Banksmen at the local colliery Lives with: In 1911, Thomas Henry (16) nd his mother Mary Ann Mather were living with relatives Joseph and Elizabeth Brown in Newton. Neighbor: Both lived at Little Hulton and married a Mather at Deane.  Therefore, John and William are possible cousins (not brothers as marriage records show different fathers) Lives with: Sarah had her mother (Shown as Henry's Mother-in-Law) with her in 1851 Relative of: Alice Mort Toppings was Henry's mother (shown on grave)

In 1851 Alice Toppings (84, Mother in Law) was living with Henry Relative of: Possible brothers or cousins from Middle Hulton Relative of: There is a record at Bolton archivers pertaining to "Apprenticeship Indenture - William, son of Ralph Mather of Middle Hulton to Thomas Morris of Great Bolton, weaver, date 27 Feb 1764".  This is probably this William (aged 12) and orphaned.
 Named After Lives with: Ann never married.  In 1871, Ann (55) was living with her Brother ans sister-in-law Hugh and Alice Mather at Farnworth Neighbor: Neighbours in 1881 Lives with: In 1891 James Henry (15) was living with his uncle James and mary Eckersley. 1742 James Mather There are several James Mather records for Dean and surrounding neighbourhood in 1743.  However, by only looking at the christening index on Batch Number P005891, there is only one, son of Ralph. ~1695 - 1753 Ralph Mather 58 58 After Ralph married Margaet in 1720, they initially lived in Over Ollton (where James was born), before moving back to Astley in Leigh.

Ralph Mather of Middle Hulton is probably another.
1724 Anna Garnet Ann's father may have been Isaac Garnet and wife (b.1688), but unsure if this is the correct wife of Ralph as she was married 3 years after the birth of James. 1748 Martha Mather On one record, recorded as sister of James, but on two other records, recorded as daughter of Ann Garnet Mather.

24 May 1768, Martha Mather probably married Thomas Bradley at St Mary's, Deane
1745 - 1746 Alice Mather 1 1 1749 John Mather 1750 Mary Mather 1752 Elizabeth Mather 1684 - 1727 Isaac Garnet 43 43 ~1688 Mrs Isaac Garnet 1767 Peter Mather Peter was "Poor", with daughter Betty's burial paid for by the parish. Betty 1791 Thomas Mather 1809 Elizabeth (Betty) Mather Elizabeth (Eliza) the daughter of Ellis Mather, was baptised at Eccles, married 1828 (replationship confirmed by christian names and household group).

Married James Grundy, and then continued to live with father at Mather's fold, Little Hulton in 1841.  Betty named her first son Ellis, named after her father.

In 1851, James and Elizabeth were publicans and had (and  were living at) the Railway Tavern, Green Lane, Worsley.  By 1861, then had moved to the Shaving Lane Public House is Worsley (then publican and farmer).
1766 - 1824 Sally Smethurst 58 58 Sally's father was John Smethurst (of Deane) 1802 - 1804 Catherine Mather 2 2 The Catherine Mather that died in 1875, aged 72 was another, a widow, a Catherine Mather (Wid, 71) was in Westhoughton in 1871 with her son Peter Hartley (47). 1794 - 1801 Mary Mather 7 7 1796 - 1857 Thomas Mather 61 61 ~1738 - 1808 Betty Mayo 70 70 After husband Peter died in 1789, Betty would most probably have remarried.  The most likely match is a marriage 18-Dec-1792 to Thomas Halliwell, a widower (although Betty Mather is recorded as a spinster). 1752 - 1830 William Mather 78 78 There is a record at Bolton archivers pertaining to "Apprenticeship Indenture - William, son of Ralph Mather of Middle Hulton to Thomas Morris of Great Bolton, weaver, date 27 Feb 1764".  This is probably this William (aged 12), and an orphan.

1758 - 1758 James Mather 1756 - 1756 Peter Mather 1692 William (Guliolius) Mather Guliolius is the Latin for William.  William Mather Married Abigail in 1717, and Abigail Uxor (wife) of Guliemi Mather died in 1732.

Guillaume is the French equivalent of William (name), which is of old Germanic origin (Wikipedia).
~1695 - 1732 Abiagail Duckworth 37 37 1725 - 1725 Dorothy Mather 2m 2m 1731 - 1731 Alice Mather 17d 17d ~1665 William (Guliolius) Mather ~1665 <unknown> Possibly Susannah Johnsom, if married 9 Feb 1677 at Manchester Cathederal by licence.  The closest date match in Lancashite. 1690 Margaret Mather 1695 Dorotha Mather 1697 Richard (Rade) Mather Richard Mather of Middle Hulton, son of Richard ~1700 Elizabeth Roebotham 1728 Johannes Mather 11 Jun 1728, Johannes filius Rade (i.e. Richard) Mather de Hultonia Media (Middle Hulton) 1731 Thomas Mather 1677 Johannis (John) Mather <unknown> 1698 Margaretha Mather 1700 Isabella Mather 1702 Maria Mather 1693 Elizabetha Mather 1693 Esther (Esther) Mather 1695 Anna Mather 1684 Petrus (Peter) Mather 1681 Maria (Mary) Mather 1679 - 1737 Thomas Mather 58 58 Thomas and Alice of Middle Hulton are buried together at St Mary's Deane.

Having the only early Mather headstone he was probably an important man, and also has strong connections to Liverpool where all 4 children were baptised.

John Mort (son) and Thomas Mather of Middle Hulton were the executors of Robert Mort (a tanner) will of 1728.

Either Thomas and Alice didnt have children, or they had Daniel, Thomas, William and Elizabeth (1706 - 1712), all baptised at St Nicholas, Liverpool.  There are no known Thomas and Alice marriages at Liverpool (only one other in Warrington in 1701). However we know they married and later were buried at St Mary's Deane.
1692 - 1692 John Mather 6d 6d 1675 - 1676 Mary Mather 1 1 1681 - 1740 Alice Pendlebury 59 59 There are marriages for Alice Pendlebury and Alicia Bradwoway on 2 Mar 1706 to a Thomas Mather at Dean, Lancashire.  It is the same person badly transcrived. 1644 - 1702 Johannis (John) Mather 58 58 The mother isnt named on any of the childrens baptisms at Deane.  She may be Esther Roscowe (based on 10 Sep 1685 Deane marriage) or Elizabeth (based on 1864 burial record, wife of Johanis). ~1640 - 1684 Elizabeth Mather 44 44 1674 Elizabeth Mather Samuel & Margareta gemini (twins) baptised 28 Feb 1674, who cant be a brother and sister so we have two families here; Both John Mather, from Kearsley (this) and Middle Hulton (other). 1674 Samuel Mather 1674 Margareta Mather 1665 Maria (Mary) Mather 1671 Jacobus (Jacob) Mather 1672 Richard Mather 1669 - 1679 Henricus (Henry) Mather 10 10 1663 - 1667 Elizabeth Mather 4 4 1665 - 1672 Margareta Mather 7 7 ~1590 Johannis (John) Mather Henry and John (possibly this Johannis) were the two sons of Gabriell of Kersley who died in 1605 (see will). <unknown> ~1570 - 1629 Henry Mather 59 59 Although Henry was of Little Hulton, he was probably born in Deane. He was to be buried in his (unnamed) fathers burial place in Deane. Anne Mather ~1600 Richard Mather According to Henry's will, Richard was Henry's eldest son. ~1605 Ralph Mather According to Henry's will, Richard was Ralph and James were his youngest sons.

~1610 James Mather According to Henry's will, Richard was Ralph and James were his youngest sons. ~1740 - 1806 Thomas Halliwell 66 66 Thomas was a widower when he married Betty. ~1738 - 1789 Peter Mather 51 51 Margaret Barlow ~1705 Alice Harrison 1703 Peter Mather 1735 Sarah (Sara) Mather Sarah is a daughter of Peter Mather for Little Hulton (south of Bolton), so probably not the Peter Mather of Turton. ~1560 - 1604 Gabriel Mather 44 44 Grabriel's mother was Ann.  She was left "one paire of gooses" in his will, so his mother Ann must have survived him.  He also had a brother Thomas and a sister Margerie.

Probably as mother (and borthers and sister) survived, Gabried was about 35 to 45 when he died, and this sons had not married (as no grandghildren are mentioned in his will).
D. >1604 Margaret Howell Margaret, and her father John Howell are refered to in Gabriel's will. ~1590 Henry Mather 1723 Jacob Mather Jacob had a sister Elizabeth, born 1730. 1717 Thomas Mather Thomas may have married Mary and was a clay potter in Prescott before he moved to Tong. 1689 Henry Mather Henry may have been married before Jane (in 1714), as Ralph baptised in 1709. 

Of Goldborne (near Lowton) when Married Margret and also when Ralph Mather baptised in 1709 as Ashton Chapel.

1715 Henry Mather Henry son of Henry & Jame Mather of Tong 1769 - 1835 James Mather 66 66 James was the son of another James from Middle Hulton, but who was this James?  There are no other childrens baptisms at Deane, of James Mather.  There are baptisms at Leigh of James (& Sarah) in 1767,69,72,73,74,75 but these must be another as they overlap our James baptised in 1769.  Likewise James and Mary of Radcliffe with baptisms 1766 and 1769 are another. ~1688 Margret Pimley Of Goldborne (near Lowton) when Married and also when Ralph Mather baptised in 1709. 1703 Mary Mather Mary deughter of Henry Mather baptised as St Thomas Ashton (very close to Goldbourn) so possibly same Thomas (but would be quite young), or at least same family. 1707 Alice Mather ~1650 John Mather 1748 - 1829 Ann Mather 80 80 1743 - 1827 Daniel Stones 84 84 1740 - 1740 Thomas Mather This Thomas must have died an infant, as another Thomas was baptised a few years later. 1743 Samuel Mather 1745 Thomas Mather 1751 Betty Mather 1756 - 1800 Harry Mather 44 44 Harry's baptism is for Middle Hulton, wheras all the other children are Little Hulton. 1757 - 1829 Noah Mather 72 72 Noan and Mary lived in Little Hulton, using Peel Chapel (Deane) for their family baptisms.  They may have started at Middle Hulton where John, their first child is recorded. 1715 John Mather Peter's baptism shows the father as John of Hulton. All the other children are shows as from "Little Hulton" except for Harry which is Middle Hulton.

1 Sep 1746, another John Mather married Mary Meadowcroft. Their children were born in Halliwell.

In 1851, Joshua Grundy (42) was head, unmarried, living with Betty Mather (36, servant) and her 6 "Mather" children, the youngest being Ellen Mather, aged 1 in Little Hulton. 

In 1861, Joshua Grundy was 52, still with Ann Mather and her children, but now the married name is Thornby.  Johsua Mather (21), Mary Grundy (14), Ellen Grundy (11), and 5 other children are all now named Thornby.

Betsey and William Grundy are missing.  Betsey and possibly Thomas are children of another family 
1835 Ann Mather In 1841, Ann was 6

In 1851, Ann was 15 and a dressmaker, a "lodger" with her mother Betty and other siblings.  Joshua Grundy was head, a carter for hire.

Birth registered as James Mather, and living with mother Betty Mather in 1851
1842 - 1858 Sarah Mather 15 15 1847 Mary Grundy Mary and Ellen's births were registered as Grundy, but names Mather and living with unmarried mother Betty Mather in 1851.  By 1861, the same group were now all "Thornly" 1850 Ellen Grundy Mary and Ellen's births were registered as Grundy, but names Mather and living with unmarried mother Betty Mather in 1851.  By 1861, the same group were now all "Thornly" 1851 Alice Mather 1853 Martha Mather 1854 Robert Mather 1856 William Mather 1859 Sarah Jane Mather 1815 - 1878 Betty Mather 63 63 Betty was the daughter of James Thornley, the illegitimate son of Ellis Mather. This caused confusion as to what her name should be.  She was brought up as a "Mather", and used that name for the 1851 census and recording her childrens births, later changed to use the name "Thornley" after 1859 and on the 1861 census.

In 1841, Betty Mather (25) was in Little Hulton with Ann (6), James (4) and Joseph (11 months).

In 1851, Joshua Grundy (head, 42) was with Betty Mather (36, Servant) and 6 children shown as lodgers at Dunkirk, Hittle Hulton:  Ann (15), Thomas (12), Joshua (10), Sarah (8), Mary (3) and Ellen Mather (1), all born Little Hulton.

In 1861, Betty was named Betty Thornby and all the children were named Thornby, not Mather or Grundy.  However, all births between 1851 and 1861 are mother (and father) named Mather, so all are illegitimate, probably Joshua Grundy's who Betty is still living with.

In 1871, Betty (52) is now named Betty Thomley.  She is still with her 5 youngest: Mailce (19), Martha (18), Robert (16), William (14) and Sarah Jane (12).

Betty died, May 1878, aged 63 and buried as Joshua Grundy's wife in the same grave.

1864 Jacob Ashton 1866 Ellen Ashton 1870 Joseph Ashton 1803 - 1864 Henry Mather 61 61 Henry is a possible son of John and Matty, born Atherton 25 Feb 1804, or he more likely the bastard child of Alice Mather of Little Hulton, baptised 8 March 1803.  Alice maried James Topping the following month.

Henry recorded his place of birth as Little Hulton, which is where he was in 1851 and 1861, but in 1841 was a Coal Minor at Pendleton Street, Pendleton, Eccles.

The Henry from Windle, St Helens is another who died 13 Mar 1839, aged 36.  There another Henry from Eccleston, Wigan who died 29 Dec 1850, aged 47, so all three born about 1803.
