red mail Thomas BROWNBILL=Sarah LANCASTER wed in 1817
Posted 28Sep2009 : The marriage was celebrated 6th April 1817 in Manchester Cathedral (IGI batch M005465) between Thomas BROWNBILL and Sarah LANCASTER. We think that Sarah LANCASTER was born in Salford before 1800 (perhaps born 1792?), and she died after the 1861 census. A Thomas BROWNBILL was baptised in this same cathedral 25 May 1794 (IGI batch C005467), son of William & Margaret BROWNBILL who we assume were born before 1778. But Thomas BROWNBILL might have been linked with another Thomas Brownbill (born before 1780), brick-maker at 14 White Cross Bank, Salford (mentioned in the 1800 edition of the Manchester & Salford Directory). Other brick-makers bearing the name Brownbill in Manchester were Joseph (born before 1835) and Alfred (a son of above mentioned Sarah and Thomas Brownbill). Sarah & Thomas had nine children : Oliver 1819, William 1826, Margaret 1827, Emma ca1830, Louisa ca1831, Thomas ca 1837, Alfred ca 1838, Angelina ca 1839, and James Henry ca 1842. If anyone has fuller details of the ascendance and/or descendance of these Brownbills I would be pleased to hear from them and share what I know already. Oliver was my great-grandfather. Regards, Ken

red mail William Frost 1858-1905 Im. to Chicago IL USA
I am looking for my gg grandfather William Frost who was born in Manchester, England about 1858. On the 1900 US Census it shows that he immigrated to the United States in 1860. He would have been 2 yrs old so he would have had to come with someone. I am assuming his parents but I have no names of any family prior to him getting married to my gg grandmother on Mary Ryan. They were married In Chicago at St. Gabriel's Church on Dec 2, 1888. That is the earliest I can place him. All other information is the information we took from the 1900 census, Chicago Directories, marriage License and Death cert. His death certificate states he lived in Chicago for 40 years at the time of his death and he was 46 years old. So if he was 2 when they came to the United States, he would have lived in another state or states before coming to Chicago, Illinois when he was 6 yrs old. Mary and He had a total of 6 children, Nora Frost 1889, William Joseph Frost Born 1892, Jeremiah Frost born 1893, Alice Frost born 1883 but died at 9 months old, Baby Frost died Dec 17, 1895 and Charlotte Frost born 1899. He died in 1905. He also may have been Protestant but married a catholic and possibly had a brother or family member named Harry Frost if any of this sounds familiar please contact me

red mail Margo Vaughan
I am looking for Margo we went to school together in Manchester in the 70's, her mum is called Marge Please contact me - Karen
My great grandfather John Scott Singleton was born at 1 Sackville Street Manchester in August 1852. Although his father Robert Peter Singleton was from Manchester he and his wife Harriet lived in London and were, I think, living in London and just visiting Manchester. This is my query. The person who registered my great grandfathers birth was not one of his parents but "SAMUEL CONSTERDINE, occupier, 1 Sackville Street". I had been trying to find a connection between my great grandfather and the railway and have found a SAMUEL CONSTERDINE, an engine driver,. in the 1851 census living at Dunbar Street Manchester, and if this is near Sackville Street wonder if this could be the same person,and what the connection is.

red mail 19th century Manchester Ingham families
My ancestor, James Ingham, was a publican in the Deansgate area of Manchester in the mid-late 19th century. Although I have accumulated quite a lot of information about him and his life, I have not been able to trace his baptism (pre-1837) and have not been able to positively connect him with siblings/parents etc. In seeking to trace his origin, I have researched a number of 'possibly connected' Ingham families in the same area around this time. It would be wonderful to hear from anyone else with similar research interests.
