The Singleton Family
I am trying to find details of the parents of my great great grandfather. His name was Robert Peter Singleton and he was born in Manchester in about 1831/2. He married Harriet Matilda White in Bethnal Green London in 1851, this was where she had grown up, and although their first child John Scott was born in Manchester in 1852 they lived for the rest of their lives in the East End of London. I know that his father was called John Singleton as this appears on Robert and Harriets marriage certificate. John may have worked for a railway company in Manchester.

Did they marry into your family?
My Great Uncle John/Jack Walsh married Sarah Spilsbury from Knutsford in 1883. They lived in the 1890's in Fletcher Street Newton Heath. They had at least 3 daughters- MARY WALSH, who was born in about 1885 in Liverpool, MARGARET WALSH, born about 1888 and ETHEL WALSH born in about 1891, both in Manchester. Did they marry into your family? I would love to trace this part of my family tree.

Manchester Newspapers lookup please
Hi, I wonder if someone has access to the Manchester Newspaper Archive. I need someone to look up newspapers in 1838/1839, the best bet would probably be the Manchester and Salford Advertiser 1825-1848, although there are others. What I'm looking for is a report on the trial of Edwin Buckley in Lancashire Quarter Sessions, Salford. He was first tried in January 1838, prosecuted by Ann Standing, and again twice in May 1839 prosecuted by Thomas Chapman and Joseph Bavis (I think). In both of these cases he had an accomplice, Joseph Collinge. One of these trials was on 27 May 1839 where he was prosecuted for shoplifting and sentenced to 7yrs transportation to Australia. I am trying to find clues to his birth, he was transported in 1840, so he won't be in the 1841 census. He said on his daughterÂ’s birth record that he was born in Oldham, but so far I haven't been able to find him there. I hope someone can help. Thank You, Faye
