red mail Family Crest for the Watson Family in Bowdon
I have found a crest for a branch of the Watson family. The Griffin holds in its beak a rose branch (leaved) with a single six-petaled rose. It is sufficiently similar to the crest for John Watson of Whitney Terrace, Bowdon (as shown in Fairbairn's Book of Crests, 1905 Ed.) that I consider the possibility of a connection. The crest was placed in a book indicating it to be the possession of a Watson family. The book was published 1846. Any information regarding the family that owned the book would be welcome.
red mail Altrincham in 17C and 18C
Please, is there a knowledgeable local historian who could give me an idea of what Altrincham was like in 17C and 18C? I have found forebears who came from Bristol but lived in Altrincham. I have JOSEPH VIGOR who was baptised in Bowdon in 1656. The Vigors were a Quaker family. His father had come from Bristol but had married a widow Dorothy Jeanes nee GLEAVE of High Leigh. Any ideas of the size and importance of Altrincham in those days would be hugely appreciated.
