red mail Looking for Catlow, Barnes, Willkinson, Gilbert and ancestors in Hyde area
George Catlow (dob 1879 Muslin St (now Talbot Rd) Newton, Cheshire) married Alice Gilbert 1904. HIs parents were John (Mill Manager 1881-1901) and Nancy Barnes. Hers were Thom and Sarah Wilkinson. I have prior family names Bowker, Jennnings, Cock on his side and Shregley, Kemp, Brierley on her side. Most left UK for US and Canada 1904-1911 except Wilkinsons and Kemps who included great water polo player George Wilkinson of Hyde Seals. George Catlow (and maybe a brother) played pro soccer and amateur cricket before 1904 and was on league championship team in 1904 per watch fob I have. And information would be helpful.

This address was near the corner of Water St and for some of this time was a Tinsmith shop as well.The parents were James and Eliza Hardy and they had 10 children,3girls and seven boys. James was a tinsmith and Eliza worked in the cotton mills.Some of there girls also went on to work in the mills.One of the sons possibly ran a butcher shop in Catherine St near Geroge St. When the parents passed away one of the daughters Esther Ann Hardy Lived on with her family at that address.I believe that address was eventually demolished to expand the Greencroft Mill.

looking for any information about the Jackson Family in Hyde. My great great grandfather was James Jackson, a policeman (retired in 1911). Any one know anything about him. He was married to Selina in 1901 but a widower by 1911.
Thomas Family
I am interested in any information relating to a Daniel Thomas (b. 1812, in Oldham) who married a Jane Bowker in St Michael's Ashton in 1840; and who lived with his family in Hyde from about 1840 until his death in 1883. Daniel and Jane had at least 8 children: Alfred (1840), Ann (1843), Edward (1845), Levi (1848), William (1853), Daniel (1855), Patience (1858) and Matthew (1863).
My mother, Beatrice Alice Higgins was born in Hyde, Cheshire on 19th August 1915. Her father was George Henry Higgins, who I am told desrted his wife sometime after my mother was born. She married a John Lofthouse Gregory in 1939. She left him, presumably for my father, in the late 1940's - early 1950's. I would like to know about, or get in touch with, any surviving related members of these families: Higgins, Swindells, Gregory and Booth, also any information on my mothers early life - school, employment etc.
