red mail Alexander Thomson & Family
Alexander Thomson was a professor of theology at the University of Edinburgh; I have not yet established where he was born, and that is part of my purpose for posting. He married Emma Jane East (b 1819, Birmingham) and they had 5 children: Emma Morell Mackenzie Thomson b 1844, William Alexander East Thomson 1845, Emily Gertrude Thomson 1845, Ann Baldwin Thomson 1848-1932 (my great grandmother), and Helen L (Nellie) Thomson. At the time of the 1881 census, he was living in Chorlton upon Medlock,Lancashire, which I understand was incorporated into Manchester at some point after that. I would like any information at all on Alexander and especially his son William. Emma, Emily, and Nellie had no children--Ann was the only sister who did, and she died young. Any descendants of William out there?

Looking for descendents of Maria Downey. SHe married John Shannon on 29th August, 1852 at the Catholic Cathedral Church of St John the Evangelical. They had two daughters - Mary (born abt 1861) and Ellen (born abt 1853). Maria was born in Galway, Eire about 1830. After her marriage, John and Maria lived in and around the Salford/Manchester area in Lancashire. Her father was Patrick Downey and John Shannon's father was also John Shanon. If anyone can help me move this line forward, I would very much appreciate any information/help.

SHEA or SHEE
The SHEA family were living in Manchester in 1841. The address is written as Hunt Bk or Hurt Bk or Hart Bk - difficult to be sure. Bk probably means Back. Can anyone enlighten me? The family had all been born in Ireland as had most of their neighbours. The head was Margaret SHEA 40. There were then Mary, 25, Patrick 20, Daniel 15 and Edward 10. There was also Daniel and Margaret Deasy and there son, and James Kelly and his daughter. 10 years later, in 1851, the family were all in Hull at Popples Row with various new in-laws. I would welcome any information about this family.
GOODMAN
Charles GOODMAN was born in Manchester in about 1860. His father was Joseph GOODMAN. His first marriage was to Eleanor Lytton HAND at Llandudno in 1882. On the certificate his father is described as a Gentleman. Charles is described as "A gent" or "Agent" - difficult to tell. His son, Hubert GOODMAN, was born in Southport in 1884. Charles became a dentist and in the late 19th century lived in Northampton. Eleanor died in in 1886 and Charles married again in 1909 to Emily Ethel DAVIES in Portsmouth. He then lived and practised dentistry in Portsmouth until his death. I have hit a brick wall with Charles's earlier life and details of his parents. Any help would be appreciated.
Brothers: James & David Nuttall
I'm having trouble identifying James and David's mother. James is my 2x grandfather. I know their father was called John. He married his 2nd wife in 1847, at which point he was living in Chorlton on Medlock and working as a labourer. In 1861, John lived in Collyhurst and in 1871, when he died age 64, he lived at High Burton Street Manchester. By 1861, he was working as a watchman. James (my 2x grandfather) was born around 1839/1840 - probably in Manchester but, according to one census entry, in Levenshulme. Based on the only census entry I have for David, he was born 1841/42. On the 1861 census, both James and David are living at home and working as dyers but, by the time he married in the late 1860s, James was working as a carter or lurryman. I can't find James or David - or their dad - on either the 1841 or 1851 censuses. Does anyone have any information about them or this family? I can't get any further with this branch of my family unless I can identify the brothers' mother. Thanks
John Nuttall - watchman - died 1871
John married, as his 2nd wife, Agnes Batty at Manchester Cathedral in 1847. At the time he worked as a labourer and lived at Crossley Street Chorlton on Medlock. Agnes died in 1864 while they were living at Hamilton Street Collyhurst and is buried at Manchester General Cemetery. John died at home in High Burton Street Manchester in 1871 and is also buried at Manchester General. I've not found them on the 1851 census (probably unsurprising as many census records for the Manchester area are water damaged) but from 1861, John's described as a watchman. According to the censuses, John and Agnes had 5 children: ABIGAIL born Chorlton on Medlock 1849, HENRY born 1851/52, MARY JANE born 1853/55, MARGARET ANN born 1857/58 and JOSEPH born 1861. On the 1871 census, Abigail is acting as the family's housekeeper, the other girls are weavers, Henry is a screw maker and Joseph is still at school. But I've no information on any of John and Agnes's children after that. Is anyone researching this line or has come across them? Does anyone have any information about John and Agnes's children? Thanks
