Hi Listers ,
Reposting my list of surnames .
All in the Denton / Hyde/Stalybridge /Dukinfield / Newton areas .
BRIDGEHOUSE . BRADBURN. KINDER. NEARY. GREENHALGH. ROBINSON.
COOKE.BOWKER. WARDLE. HARGREAVES. HIBBERT
Love to hear from anyone with an interest in any of these names .
I have just launched a new website for anyone with roots in Timperley,
Cheshire. I would STRESS that the site is in its infancy at present, and
is mostly about my own family lines, but I would love to post details other
families on the site and as much history and photos of the village as
possible. I have included some of my own family BMD's from St Mary's
Church, Bowdon and hope to extend this to cover other families and churches
around the area. Like others my family spread over quite a wide area
including Timperley, Altrincham, Bowdon, Sale, Baguley, Cheadle Hulme,
Salford. Stretford to mention just a few of the places that will be included
or linked to the site.
If anyone would like their family details included please email me at
You can visit the site at http://www.timperleyroots.freeuk.com/Index.htm
is that Impropriator?
My dictionary tells me that to impropriate is to 'place tithes or
ecclesiastical property in lay hands'
An 'impropriator' one to whom a benefice is impropriated.
So where you have this column it suggests that part of the living of the
parish had been diverted to someone other than the vicar or rector.
If someone can look this parish up for you in a directory such as Kelly's
you should get a bit more detail.

Hi, I'm trying to find out more about John EYES/AYES/HAYES of Witherwing Farm, Appleton, Cheshire.
He was born about 1841 - no idea where, and was married but I do not know if he had any children.
His wife came from Bowdon, Cheshire but these places are not particularly close. How they came to
meet is a bit of a mystery - as is where and when they married. Anyone else interested in this
family name from the Appleton area? Many thanks, Natalia.
I've just joined the list and these are my interests:
T MORTON POWELL, theatrical manager, lived with his first wife, Elizabeth
Jane GREY, at 134 Cathcart Street, Birkenhead late 1880s. Also living at
same address were his parents William Henry MORTON and Margaret MORTON.
Married his second wife, Sofia Buchan(an) ROGERSON in 1895.
If anyone has an interest in any of these names would be great to hear from
I have just located a list of Tithes that I forgot I had. A

Some of the headings puzzle me.
The first few - owner, occupier, no. description, size (in
acres, roods & perches) all make sense. But the last two - Vicar and
Improprietor - are a puzzle.
In the lists for Clive and Middlewich, the Vicar colum is blank,
but amounts of money (4d, 5d, 6d, 9d, 11d etc) appear in the lists for
Wheelock and Over.
In the Wheelock list, the last column is headed Rector rather
than the Improprietor of the other three lists.
Can anyone explain these things, please?

Hello every one, only joined this site this week, find it fascinating, and highly impressed by the kindly soul's that respond to the plea's for assistance, and the knowledge displayed. I'm seeking Information regarding to my g/grandfather Samuel Barlow, son of Thomas Barlow, shoemaker ? Samuel was born in 1844, according to census, he was born in Congleton ? Samuel married Ann Pyne 25-12-1869, at St James Parish Church, Congleton. Samuel died in Chester Asylum, Upton by Chester on the 15-09-1913, he was 69 at the time of his demise. Samuel was working as a Silk Worker, in the 1860's, later moved to Monk Coppenhall, Crewe, and worked at Grand Junction Railway as a labourer. In the 1841 Congleton census, enumeration district 5, page 17 is the following.
Thomas Barlow 40 Shoemaker, Mary Barlow 40,
Eliza Barlow 14 Silk Throwster, John Barlow 12 Silk Throwster,
Mary Barlow 10 Silk Throwster, Thomas Barlow 2,
John Barlow 1 month.
[ This looks a possibility to be my folks with Samuel born later ]
Would any kind person whom has 1851 census please look it up, and see if Samuel is with said family, and kindly inform me of the fact's. All effort,s to obtain proof of Samuel's birth have failed, Southport ONS have also failed to find a birth entry, I know the problem is not uncommon, however pray some-one can assist, thanking you all for your attention.

I found my great grandmother from Manchester on the 1881 British Census for Cheshire, ALICE ANN CROSS and her sister Mary CROSS, boarding in Bostock with a family named Williamson. The next year ALICE CROSS married ALFRED MORETON, of Northwich. Does any one know about this John Williamson? I am trying to make the connection with the Cross family.
Alice, daughter of JAMES AND MARY had two older brothers: JOHN HERBERT, b. 1858 and Thomas 1859 in Lancashire.
Then I found ILMO/ JOHN HERBERT / B.H. OF /FLORENCE CROSS/ of Castle/wpa 22 Jan 1930/a57y/also FLORENCE their d/wd 9 Aug 1918/a16y/Dearly loved, sadly missed/ata/FLORENCE CROSS/D 17 Sept 1956/82y/also JOHN F. WILLIAMSON/BN 26 Mar 1924/D 29 Aug 1956/also ELSIE MARY WILLIAMSON/D 26 Oct 1969 a 75y.
+Harry Williamson, born March 31, 1880 married Florence Mary Moreton, born February 11, 1889 on December 14, 1911. HELP and Thanks.
Are you sure?
