Whiteleys
Im hoping someone is also related to the Whiteleys- as i can find no information on them despite years of looking George 'friend' (possibly made up) Whiteley born aroun 1864 born in Peterboro according to his marriage details but living and married in Chorlton upon Medlock his second wife Fanny (nee watson) whom he married in 1901 their son George Watson Whiteley born 1901 daughter Constance Whiteley 1910.

they appear in 1911 to be in hildyard street grimsby- with another daughter (maybe only of Georges) Florence May Whiteley born in Manchester in 1893. who is living in service in hildyard st working for widow Rose Hayward i know Fanny was born in brinkhill but was married in manchester.

Im quite curious to find out what would take someone bewtween lincolnshire and Mancheester- i googled it and i am aware the main train line was put in in 1848 or something, and in 1900 about a third of the UKs fish was being landed in grimsby. the puzzling thing is Fannys family and Georges were farmers, labourers and gardeners. so im struggling to see why they then moved back to limcolnshire. this is quite a family puzzle- since i cant find a death for George Snr- although i know from his daughters marriages that he was already deceased by 1912 and his youngest daughter was born in 1910- so i believe he died somewhere between 1909 and 1912. someone mentioned the mayor J whiteley Wilkin but i think this is a red herring (pardon the pun).

anything, anyone?
