red mail Haddock family
GGG grandmother Ann Haddock, born 1841, married Edward Armstrong from Northumberland in Connecticut in 1859. Her parents were Benjamin Haddock (born around 1814) and Elizabeth Rowbotham, who appear in the Censuses from 1841 in Runcorn and Halton. Siblings Edward (born 1836) and John Wesley (1844). Cousins Sarah Ann and Martha J lived with the family some of the time. Ann and Edward travelled back and forth to the USA in the 1860s; their daughter Martha is described in the 1861 Census as an American British Subject because she was born in Portland, Connecticut. The next two sons were born in Cheshire. Am very interested in the Haddock family and any connections with quarrying / stone masonry and also connections with the US.
red mail Miller-Handley family
I am seeking information about a Samuel Miller who may have been a Farmer and may have been born circa 1790 in Cheshire, near to Halton or Runcorn. This Samuel was the father of Martha who was born between 1815-1821 and who married William Handley, Butcher, at Manchester Cathedral in 1840. Both he and William's father John Handley, appear to have been alive at the time of the wedding. Moreover I cannot find Elizabeth Miller, who may have been William or Martha's sister, on the 1841 census; and I know that she was alive in 1851 & 1861 as she was recorded in both those censuses. Or she may have been Martha's mother, as a Samuel and Elizabeth Miller appear to have had several children christened in Halton, Cheshire, including a Martha.
red mail Handley Family
I am seeking information about a John Handley who may have been a Farmer and who may have been born circa 1790 somewhere in Cheshire, perhaps near to Halton or to Runcorn. His son William, who was a Butcher, married Martha Miller in Manchester in 1840.
