I am now really truly stuck. My line finishes now with
James HUNT born we think 1807 the following is something i have come across
which seems to tie in (but how do i no for sure)
Baptism: 6 Sep 1807 St Wilfrid, Farnworth near Prescot, Lancashire, England
James Hunt - Son of John Hunt & Catharine
Register: Baptisms 1761 - 1812, Page 132, Entry 13
Source: LDS Film 1655234 item 3
Now for the tricky bit, i have found that he was married to a Mary HUNT, now
all i no is that on a birth cert maiden name was given as HUNT for one of
I have found this family in 1841 and 1851 census.
In the 1841 Census
Head James HUNT 30 Journeyman Watchmaker
Wife Mary 30
Son John 5 (should be 7/8)
Son George 7
Daughter Jane 2
From the 1851 living at Poppy St Farnworth
James Hunt age 43 watch movement maker b Widnes
Mary age 40 b Widnes
George age 15 watch movement maker b Widnes
Ellen age 9
William age 5
Mary age 2
Now i would really love to go bk further and i have tried to get the
marriage cert for Jame and Mary. There first child was John born in 1833.
I have searched records in St Wilfrid Farnworth but i dont think that all
the records are on line.
So question 1: How can i confirm that the baptism i have found is the
2: how can i find the marriage, as then i am hoping it will give me both
there parents names.
3: Mary surname, as it is listed as maiden name on birth cert of one of her
children, i am guessing they were cousins (james mary) but could it b a
sister inlaw or somthing like that.....
Any ideas or help would b most grateful, or if anyone reconises this family
