He was at times, a machine fitter, bricklayer’s labourer and plasterers labourer.Thomas D Stead married Ellen Burnett (nee Gregory) in 1921. Thomas and Ellen had two daughters, Ellen Stead, born Prestwich Manchester in1922, and Margaret Stead, born 1923. Ellen married Carl Baker and emigrated to Canada after WW2 where she had two sons.

Manchester Newspapers lookup please
Hi, I wonder if someone has access to the Manchester Newspaper Archive. I need someone to look up newspapers in 1838/1839, the best bet would probably be the Manchester and Salford Advertiser 1825-1848, although there are others. What I'm looking for is a report on the trial of Edwin Buckley in Lancashire Quarter Sessions, Salford. He was first tried in January 1838, prosecuted by Ann Standing, and again twice in May 1839 prosecuted by Thomas Chapman and Joseph Bavis (I think). In both of these cases he had an accomplice, Joseph Collinge. One of these trials was on 27 May 1839 where he was prosecuted for shoplifting and sentenced to 7yrs transportation to Australia. I am trying to find clues to his birth, he was transported in 1840, so he won't be in the 1841 census. He said on his daughter’s birth record that he was born in Oldham, but so far I haven't been able to find him there. I hope someone can help. Thank You, Faye
