Searching for information on the family of Daniel and Mary Hickson who lived in Macclesfield, I believe they worked in the silk factories. Their son Albert Hickson (born 1864) is my grandfather twice removed. Albert and his brother emigrated to Australia on the ship "Waroonga" departing from Plymouth and arrived in Cooktown, Queensland, Australia on 5th June 1883. Albert married Sarah Anne Harrop, their son Alfred Edmund is my grandfather. I was told that contact was maintained after Alberts departure, I would welcome contact with any family members or other researchers who may be help.
Nicola was born in 1960 in or near Macclesfield and her mother's maiden name was Shipton. My ancestor John Shipton, Silk Throwster, was born in Macclesfield in 1792. His father was also born in Macclesfield and I wonder if we have any common ancestry on your mothers side.

I am trying to find evidence of an Italian maker of barometers established in Macclesfield around 1795-1815. The "Evidence" that currently exists is the form of several barometers of this period that are signed "Ortelly Macclesfield" or "Ortelli & Co Macclesfield", and similar variations on that theme - but nothing supports the logical assumption that one or more of Ortellis (well known in London and Oxford) had a presence in Macclesfield. They came to England towards the end of the 18th Century, from the Lake Como region of N, Italy and also from the Italian-Austrian border region.Many thanks. Jean

red mail Timmins Family
The Timmins family lived at 33 Parsonage Street, MacClesfield, Cheshire. Felix and Mary Timmins were born abt 1800 in Ireland.

red mail Thomas Lancaster C1850
I am trying to verify the parents of Thomas Lancaster born approx 1850 in either Macclesfield or Biddulph. He married Ellen Bailey (Bayley) on 12/2/1872 and had a least one daughter Hannah (my great grandmother) born 1874. Thomas's trail has been difficult to follow as, depending on which census you look at, his birth is from 1846 to 1852 !! he also appears to be unsure where he was born as the early census give him as Macclesfield and the 1901 as Biddulph. Unfortunately the discrepancies mean there are two possibilities for his parents. Any information which could give more information would be grately appreciated.
red mail Upton families at Macclesfield
Contact sought with anyone researching these, especially John and Ann (Nancy) Upton and their children born between, approximately, 1800-1812. John Upton's occupation was a 'Hatter'. Ann / Nancy Upton's maiden name may have be Salt (or Salte or other spelling variation) or that may have been the maiden name of John Upton's mother as one of John and Nancy's sons was named Samuel Salt/e Upton.
red mail Yvonne Wood born C1953
I am seeking information on the whereabouts of Yvonne Wood believed to have been born in Macclesfield. She was the child of Charles Leslie and Mary Wood (nee Mulally). Lived in the Buxton Road area of Macclesfield in 1956 with parents and baby sister Evelyn. Charles went to prison around this time and Mary took Yvonne to the Manchester area leaving Evelyn in Macclesfield to be fostered out. Nothing is known about Charles, Mary or Yvonne after 1958 when Mary disappeared with Yvonne. Mary was Irish so possible she went home. Evelyn would love to hear from her/them and any information would be gratefully received.
red mail John & Lizzie Gibbons born 1893-1905
I am looking for information on John and Lizzie (possible Elizabeth, Eliza) Gibbons believed to have been born in Stockport workhouse around the turn of the century but raised in Macclesfield. They are the siblings of my grandfather Charles Gibbons (born 1895) and the children of Mary Ann Gibbons. It is known that John lodged with my grandfather in the bank street area of Macclesfield until grandmother died in 1926. Charles died in 1936 aged 40 and nothing more has been known about John from that time. It is believed that lizzie moved to Hyde but this is unconfirmed. Any information gratefully received.
red mail David Hodkinson 1816-1846
I am looking for child/siblings/parents of David Hodkinson born 1816 in Macclesfield. David married Ann Spencer in 1844 and died in an accident at his work (Gas Board) when he was just thirty. I know they had at least one child William (my great grandddad), and that there might have been a daughter too. It is possible that David's father was William too and I am sure there would have been siblings to David but there are so many Hodkinsons in Macclesfield without positive connections it is impossible to guess. Any info gratefully received. We know that David's widow Anne remarried in 1864, James Jolley.
