Fatherless Waltons
My great-grandmother Martha was born the illegitimate daughter of Catherine Walton on 20th May 1863. The address given was 22 Co***, Wolverhampton Street, Bilston. (I cannot read the first part). Catherine had a second daughter Clara in 1865. I can find no trace of the family in 1871 census but in 1881, the girls are in Salford with their "father" William Walton, blacksmith, also born in Bilston. Given the circumstances I am almost certain he was their grandfather. I would be really grateful for any information. This is my brick wall!

red mail Richards / Farquhar
Unless you can prove otherwise I must assume that my fathers mother, my Grandmother was an intergallactic alien beamed down to Earth about 1900! Her name was Florence Richards, born about 1878 supposedly in Bilston,Staffordshire.We know she was employed by a family in Preston, Lancashire as a nurse and we have proof that she worked as an" attendant upon the insane "at Prestwich Asylum , Lancashire from 1901 until she "left to be married "in 1909.(her referee for this job came from a Miss Amsden who was the Lady Superintendant at Wolverhampton Orphanage) She married my Grandfather, John Farquhar,at the register office in Manchester.He also worked at the asylum in a similar capacity. They had two sons, one of them my father. Florence lived with the family in Prestwich until her death in 1921. We have proof of all stages of her life, including where she is buried but no idea where she came from before this. My late aunt, the wife of the other son ,Alexander ( Alec or Sandy)said that just before the last World War, about 1939, they both went to visit relatives of Florence in Bilston and" there were dozens of them",the table was groaning with food for them all. After the death of their Mother the two boys used to go to spend the long Summer holidays with "Aunt Suranne"(Sarah-Anne?) who had a shop (I always believed to be in Stoke but I may be confused on this) Trying to find anything about this woman is frustrating beyond measure so far!HELP!

red mail Holford Search
My 3GGF was Isaac Holford. I have found his marriage to a Susannah Houghton in Wolverhampton in 1774 and the baptisms of their five chidren including Thomas, my 2GGF. Isaac died in 1808 and was buried in St Leonards burial ground which, I understand, is now shops & carparks. His wife Susannah ran the Malt Shovel pub for some years in the early 1800s; she died in 1831. I have been unable yet to find any information on Isaac Holford. He was probably born around 1750 but, where? Any information at all would be gratefully recieved.

BUTTLETOR(Butter)(Butler)(Buttleter) family,Bilston 1800's
My maternal great great grandmother was PHOEBE BUTTLETOR c1852, Bilston, Staffordshire. Her parents were WILLIAM BUTTLETOR c1825 and PHOEBE(nee NICHOLLS) c1826, both born Bilston. Over the years,on census returns and also marriage documents the name is misspelt as 'Butter','Buttler' and also 'Buttleter'. Phoebe married my great great grandfather CHARLES EDWARDS c1853 also listed as born at Bilston,in 1872 in the Salford District of Greater Manchester.Charles was a miner and Phoebe worked in a mill,possibly fabric or carpet mill.They had at least 5 children,the eldest Mary Jane being born at Pendlebury,Lancashire(she married WATSON FENWICK of Longbenton,Northumberland in 1896)and one of the other daughters SARAH EDWARDS married a widower MATTHEW STRONG of Backworth in 1900(my great grandparents) Great great grandmother Phoebe sadly seems to have died at the early age of 36 at Backworth.I assume they were in that area probably because Charles may have worked at the coal mine at Backworth. I've been unable to find marriage details for 3xgreat grandparents William Buttletor and Phoebe Nicholls,any information regarding them or other families with the surname Buttletor greatly appreciated.
