red mail CANALBOATMEN ASTLEY
I HAVE BEEN RESEARCHING MY ANCESTORS WHO LIVED AND WORKED ON THE CANAL AT ASTLEY. FOR A TIME THEY LIVED ON MARSLAND GREEN ABOUT 1901,AND ON A BOAT IN 1891.MY GRANDFATHER WAS THOMAS BLEARS, BORN IN 1867 AND HIS WIFE WAS HANNAH ( WOODWARD ) FATHERS NAME WOODWARD. MARRIED IN LEIGH IN 1890. WOULD APPRECIATE ANYONE WITH FURTHER INFO.
red mail BARLOW & WHEELER
Elizabeth Wheeler married Josiah Green Barlow in Astley 1905. She was daughter of boatman Joseph Wheeler and Victoria Grundy. Josiah was the son of Richard Barlow & Elizabeth Green, they were coal merchants. In 1901 Elizabeth Wheeler was living near Canal Bridge Astley Green. A brother George Wheeler married Harriete, this couple lived in Cleworth Cottages in 1901. Any connections appreciated. Bren
red mail Barlows and Marlands in Astley
I would very much like further information on the genealogy of John Barlow born c.1809, a boatman who married Alice Gore b.1815 in Liverpool on 19 May 1834 and settled in Astley, near Manchester. He had a son Richard Barlow, born in Lymm, Cheshire in 1846 and who married Elizabeth (Granny) Barlow on 8 November 1868 in Astley.Their daughter Mary, born 1869 married my great grandfather Peter Marland born 1867, son of Robert Marland and Betty (Betsey) Green. As this Barlow family worked on the canals it has been difficult to trace them. Richard Barlow was later a hay and corn dealer in Astley. I am also stuck with the Marlands of Astley/Tyldesley. I have been able to trace the Marlands of Astley back to 6 January 1731 when John Marland was married to Alice Heys in Tyldesley near Leigh. He was born before 1707, but I don't know where. Alice was born in Leigh in 1697. John had a brother Joshua, I think. Many thanks for any help!
red mail Grundy Astley Green
My Great Grandfather Richard Grundy was born in Astley Green in 1823. He married Mary Ann Ellis at Eccles Parish Church in 1846, in the 1851 and 1861 census he is a Beerhouse Keeper in Carruthers St Manchester. On his wedding cirtificate his fathers name is David Grundy,occupation Boatman, so perhaps he worked on the Bridgewater canal from Astley Green. Any information about family and and canal workers please.
red mail Rosses Arms formally Astley Arms
Astley Arms now named Rosses Arms on Higher Green Lane was built in 1850 and my grt grt grandfather John Grundy was in 1851 census the first landlord, John died in 1860 and his wife Jemima stayed on with her seven chidren, she remarried in 1865 to a George Pope. In 1871 David Grundy and his wife Ellen took over the pub , he was nephew to the late John Grundy. In 1885 David's son Thomas and his wife Elizabeth took over the tenancy untill 1907.Good going for my Grundy family running this Astley Arms from 1851 till 1907. Israel Parry then took over the tenancy, later his son Hindley Parry. Then Stanley Spencer and his wife Dorothy spent many years as landlord. I do not know where Thomas Grundy and Elizabeth moved to in 1907, but his mother Ellen is a widow in 1891 and in the Commersial Inn in Bedford Leigh.Living with her is her married daughter Margaret and son in law John Guest grandson Stanley Guest.
