MATHER, Ellen - Who are her parents?
For a couple of years now I've been 'claiming' the wrong ancestry and I need some help, please. It concerns Ellen MATHER. The part of my ancestry which is correct goes like this: Jane MATHER (my b.Q3 1838 in Hindley. On 7 April 1861 she is given as 22 years old on census. By time of marriage she is 23. Therefore, her birth must be the one for Sep quarter 1838 as this fits the dates.Ref:21/130 Marriage: 20 Oct 1861 All Saints, Hindley, Lancashire, England Roger Gregory - 20 Collier Bachelor of Castle Hill Jane Mather - 23 Mule Piecer Spinster of Mill Lane Groom's Father: James Gregory, Labourer Witness: Richard Gregory; Mary Molineux, (X) Married by Banns by: P. Jones, Incumbent Register: Marriages 1851 - 1866, Page 156, Entry 311 Source: LDS Film 9375 In 1851 HO 107/2200 237/43 she is with her unmarried mother, Ellen, and her 2 siblings James b.Q4 1840 and John b.1843 as well as Ellen's sister Mary. Ellen's age is given as 33 and Mary is 21. All born Hindley except Ellen whose birthplace was written as Hindley then crossed out and replaced with Darwen. They are living at Burracks, Hindley. All of that I accept. In 1861 Ellen's age is 43 and she has now married Thomas Hodkinson and living at Mill Lane, Hindley. Marriage: 8 Feb 1859 All Saints, Hindley, Lancashire, England Thomas Hodkinson - (X), 43 Silk-weaver Bachelor of Castle Hill Ellen Mather - (X), 41 Silk-weaver Spinster of Castle Hill Groom's Father: John Hodkinson, Weaver Bride's Father: James Mather, Silk Weaver Witness: John Hayes; Martha Hayes Married by Banns by: P. Jones, Incumbent Register: Marriages 1851 - 1866, Page 96, Entry 191 Source: LDS Film 93751 Her age as 41 when she married in Feb 1859 would mean that she could have been born any time between Feb 1818 and Feb 1819. However, in 1861 she is shown as 43 (which matches the marriage and 1851 info) census taken 7th April. But in 1871 taken 2nd April, she is shown as 52. And in 1881 she is giving herself as 53, taken on 3rd April. Not sure if any of that is significant. She says in 1851 she was born Darwen, in 1861 born Hindley, in 1871 Over Darwen, and in 1881 it is Abram.....very confusing especially when you don't know the area. 1891 at age 72 it is back to Darwen and she still has her unmarried grandson Joseph living with her but is calling him her son. Ellen says that her father is James Mather, Silk Weaver on her marriage papers. Would that mean he was still alive on that date? If so, I can't find him in 1851 with the Ann who would seem to be Ellen's mother on the 1841 census, living in Rotten Row, Hindley. The 3 youngest children belong to Ellen. Ann Mather 40 Weaver cotton N Ellen Mather 20 Silk Weaver Y Ann Do 20 Do Y Sarah Do 14 Y Mary Do 11 Y Elizabeth Do 8 Y Jane Do 3 Y James Do 10 mths Y Joseph Do 6 wks Y Before I found the marriage of Ellen I had thought that she was the daughter of George MATHER and Ellen FINCH. But finding the marriage detail, together with the 1841 census detail I know that I was wrong. If there is someone who can help me sort this out I would really appreciate it. Joan
