May I make request to you all? Could you introduce yourself here so
know who you are and where you're from? I'd like to make a list of where
everyone is from so I can see where we are geographically.
I'm Lesley Huppert and I live in Constance Bay, on the Ottawa River, just
west of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. I'm interested is in unravelling a mystery
in Manchester. My 4x great grandfather DAVID HARDIE was a ware-
houseman who had businesses in both Manchester and London; he's
supposed to be Scottish but am having trouble proving or disproving
it. He married ELIZABETH CHETHAM in 1804 at Manchester Cathedral
but was living in London 1809-1811and son born there raised his family in
the City. A David Hardie with a wife called called Ellen Rushton was
baptising children in Liverpool/Manchester in the 1820s and I don't know if
it's my man or another ... I'd thought the name David combined with Hardie
was fairly distinctive for the time!
Can anyone offer any help?
