red mail Ryder/ Rider family 18thC
The Ryder/Rider family were whitsters (aka bleachers) in Blackley in the 18th century. A John Ryder married a Martha Darnley in 1735 at the Collegiate Church, Manchester. They appear to have been based in Crow Lane and to have had about ten children, who appear to have married with and into the Scholes, Butterworth, Travis and Harrison families and possibly others. I am very interested in discovering more about this period in the family's history, and could anyone with information please contact me. Stephen.
