My name is Mary Croft. I live in Ottawa, Ontario Canada.
The person(s) that I am looking for is:
James Schofield was born in Salford near Manchester around 1815. This
information is consistent with all censuses and his marriage record
and his obiturary - so I have to assume that it is correct!
On his marriage certificate it states that he is the son of James,
occupation listed as "Calender"? - i have no idea what that is!
I would be interested in a little history of Salford between 1800 and
1820 - I am under the impression that it wasn't very settled at that
time - but I may be wrong!
The name KERSHAW may be important to this family. James named one of
his sons John KERSHAW Schofield. He also named a terrace that he
built in Fulham, KERSHAW terrace - it may have been his mother's name?
