It is a list of names in Leek, including possibly one of my Condliffes.
Could give other names if of interest to anyone

Just saying hello,
I am researching the surname Cook.
My fathers great great great grandfather, Robert Cook, was from Cheshire
specifically Dukeinfield, Born on November 14, 1812. He was Married to Olive
Marie Gillette in Ontario Canada. His fathers name was George Cook. George
Cook was married to a Ann unknown. I was wondering if you had any
information that you may have come across? I appreciate any information
that you may have.
I do have Robert Cook's wife's family line back to early 500 AD's if anyone
may need the line.
Compstall Bridge is just outside Marple Bridge. There is a church there St.
Paul's. My family lived in Compstall Bridge, they baptised some of their
children there but also at St. Michael's. Mottram.
They were buried in the Church Yard at St.Pauls.
Happy New Year to all and Happy Searching.

Hello and Happy New Year,
My ancestor said he came from Rugby, Warwick in the early 1800's.
I opened my atlas and looked where Rugby is located in relation to
I estimate it to be about 170km or about 100 odd miles between these two
I must admit I am very ignorant when it comes to English geography and how
people moved around during this time.
Thomas Chaplin was said to have filled several large contracts for bricks
My question is how far away would such an order likely to have come from?.
Is a distance of 100 miles conceivable for the 1840's. I would say that
bricks of any quantity would be very heavy.
I can't seem to locate him in Warwick, so I am thinking he and members of
his family may have moved to somewhere near Birkenhead.
What do you think about this logic?
I was hoping that anyone with access to the 1851 or earlier Census of
Cheshire could possible look for a Chaplin family.
The members would be at the time of 1851 Census.
Charles Neal Chaplin aged 61 (head) born Rugby 1791 Could be known as Henry.
Elizabeth Chaplin aged ?? (nee Burgess) Could be known as Mary.
Mary Chaplin aged 37 Daughter born 1814
William Chaplin aged 34 Son born 1817
Thomas Chaplin aged 31 Son born 1820
Note: Thomas emigrated to Australia in late 1850 so he would have missed the
It is likely that the children Mary and William were married with a family
of their own by 1851.
Hopefully they will turn up.
Any help would be appreciated.
I've recently been looking at the parish registers for Hayfield and Mellor in
the early years of the 19th century, and came across several references to
Compstall Bridge then. My ancestors seem to have migrated from Derbyshire
into Cheshire at about that time. My great x 3 grandparents Danbiel and
Betty Wild had their son Thomas baptised at Hayfield in 1817, and were
recorded as living at what appears to be 'Constor Bridge', which I had
guessed may be an abbreviation for Compstall Bridge. Incidentally, if my
guess is wrong and anyone does know where Constor Bridge was, I'd be very
grateful to know the answer.
During the Christmas tidy up I seem to have unfortunately thrown away two letters from fellow family researchers. Both letters were written after my family interests appeared in the Cheshire Family History magazine so I assume that the people concerned don't have internet. I feel very unhappy about not replying to these letters so wonder if anyone could help me identify the people concerned. The first letter was from Mrs McDERMOTT (nee CHARNOCK)somewhere in Cambridgeshire (I think) who I believe was researching the MERCER family in Frodsham and also the CHARNOCK family in Warrington.
The other I barely had time to read before it "disappeared" but the lady writing was researching the ROWLAND family in Tarvin/ Clotton and was interested in the marriage between Elizabeth ARROWSMITH and John ROWLAND in Tarvin 1797.
I do hope someone may be able to help me trace these two ladies so that I can get in touch with them.
Many thnaks in advance and Happy New Year to everyone
Hello kind Listers
A bit of further info to those who've kindly answered my query
regarding Warrington. I've been sent info that there is Werrington in
Staffordshire, so maybe that's what is meant.
Here's the scenario:
Four children of this FARAM family were registered in 1889,
1890, 1891 and 1897 at 'Barton I' which I've got listed as Staffordshire. Is
that wrong too? What does 'I' stand for?
Two more were registered in Manchester in 1894 and 1896.
In between is Francis Henry registered in Warrington or
Werrington in 1893 (2nd quarter), with his death registered in the same
place in the 3rd quarter of the same year (ref 8e/127).
I know I'm posting this to the Cheshire List, but many twigs of
this family lived in Cheshire with registrations in Staffordshire, while
some actually moved to Staffordshire, from whence they moved to Cheshire a
couple of generations earlier! Confusing, isn't it?
I'd appreciate some thoughts on this please.

That would be 'Barton upon Irwell' registration district, near
Manchester (not Staffs!).

This would be Warrington registration district (Lancs), volume no. 8c
If the Listowner will forgive the blatant plug <g>, I recently
compiled 'A Handbook to the Civil Registration Districts of England
and Wales' (ISBN 0-9540911-1-6), which is a 56-page booklet listing
all the districts you'll find mentioned in the national BMD indexes,
together with the dates they were formed and created, the counties
they covered, where the registers of abolished districts were
transferred to, and the volume numbers used in the references. For example:
BARTON UPON IRWELL (LAN). Created 1.1.1850 out of Chorlton RD,
Worsley RD. Abolished 1.10.1934 and registers transferred to Barton
RD. GRO vols. 20 (1850-51), 8C (1852-1934).
Although there have been other lists of registration districts, this
is the only complete guide covering the 1200+ districts which have
existed from 1837 right up to the present. It's available from the
FHS of Cheshire (www.fhsc.org.uk) or from the FFHS On-Line Bookshop
(www.familyhistorybooks.co.uk), price 4.95 + postage.

In response to your question about your ancestor having a link
to Birkenhead although he lived in Rugby, the probable answer might be found
in a study of transportation in the 1800's.
In the early 1800's there existed a fairly extensive canal
system that, although slow, enabled heavy goods to be transported around the
country. But in 1812 the country was involved in the Napoleonic Wars and men
were being conscripted for the Army which, without horses, could not
function. Every horse was requisitioned as was the essential fodder. The
consequence was that the cost of horse power became unacceptable,
particularly to mine owners, as they relied on horses too, so began the
search for a cheaper substitute. From this the Railway Revolution began.
The first passenger carrying railway opened in 1830 and from that
point there was an explosion of railway building which amounted to almost a
frenzy. If maps of the railways in Britain are studied and a comparison is
made between the years 1830 and 1848 over 6000 miles of railway was built
and the rail road network an established fact.
Transportation between cities became quick and easy. Maybe dirty,
noisy and uncomfortable but easy..
But the other important effect, not usually considered in railway
history books of this period, was the sudden need for people to build the
railways, to runs the railways, to build the engines, to build the trucks
and coaches and so on. Labour became short, skilled labour was essential and
added to this was the very active recruitment by those 'Americans',
particularly in the Liverpool/Birkenhead area for experienced men to go and
help build the canals and railways in that country.
Although conjecture it would seem that if your ancester was skilled
in the art of brick making and brick laying, his services would have been in
great demand all over the country helping to build the bridges, the
viaducts, the stations and all the other essential infractructure needed for
the new railroads system in Britain..
My suggestion is for anyone trying to find missing ancestors in the
1851 census to study the possibility that they had moved to areas where they
would have been working for or on the new rail road for one of the multitude
of independant contractors. For instance my ggrandfather appears on the 1851
census in Crewe where the steam engines for the London North Western Railway
were being built, while his family remained in Liverpool. Men went where the
work was and getting there had become easy.

This is my first mail to the group.
I am interested in finding out more information about the first wife and
marriage of my
G Grandfather Alfred BURROWS. He was born 17 Apr 1862 in Congleton,
Cheshire, the son of William BURROWS and Charlotte PENDLE. He married
Hannah DAVIES in a civil marriage ceremony in Congleton in 1888. I would
know more about Hannah Davies and wondered how I can find out if there were
children as a result of this marriage. If anybody has access to the 1891
Congleton, could they do a lookup for me please.
Alfred BURROWS married again 25 Jul 1895 in Norton in the Moors,
Staffordshire, and his marriage certificate states that he was a widower. He
my G Grandmother Agnes Ann BARLOW who was born 21 Apr 1872 in
Burslem, Staffordshire and died 19 Sep 1954 in Manchester.
I'd also like to find out when Alfred BURROWS date of death. All I know is
that it was between approx 1903 and 1925.
If anyone has a connection to any of these people I'd love to hear from you.

According to the Cheshire Record Office Guide the following records survive
for Nantwich Union Workhouse: Board Minutes 1842-1930; finance committee
minutes 1891-1920; annual accounts 1892-7; reports of Nantwich Union
building committee 1894-1912; correspondence and papers 1897-1926; remval
orders 1894-1930 and out-relief papers 1922-1929; workhouse records (Barony
Institution, later Hospital): Regiters of inmates c1925-49; records of
vaccination officer 1872-1910; assessment returns 1894-1926.
Unfortunately the admission/discharge and birth/death registers do not
appear to have survived. Poor Law Unions were not formed until 1834. Any
previous workhouse (they were around from the beginning of the 18th century)
is unlikely to have had records anyway.
Nantwich township records (for the old poor law) do not seem to be much
better: Overseers 1807-17 (this could include settlement, bastardy,
apprenticeship papers plus accounts, vestry minutes etc.); Constables 1800,
More records may have been deposited since this Guide was published.
Cheshire RO will be able to advise.
