Help required to find information about my dad Thomas Edward Jones born 15/5/1910 in Birkenhead and married my mum Doris Jones in 1950 in St Johns Church Royton. Sadly mum passed away in 1952 and i believe dad may have stayed about the Oldham area
red mail Baxter and Bennett
Gladys Baxter (husbands grandmother) was born in 1904 in Oldham Union Workhouse. She was born to a single mum Elizabeth Baxter. She says she she is 33. (Workhouse records) So that would make her born in 1871. Despite extensive searching 1911 census I can't find a match. I have found Gladys on school records 1914 this indicates father or guardian is James and is living at 86 Franklin Street Oldham. Elizabeth left the workhouse with Gladys a month or so after her birth but the workhouse records state she was suffering from senility and destitute. Finding Elizabeth's family is the only way to continue the family tree so I am trying to locate her ancestors. My husband was told there was a Scottish connection and his entitlement to wear the Baxter tartan. On Glady's birth certificate Elizabeth is an unmarried mother who has been working as a domestic servant in Oldham both Gladys and Elizabeth having Baxter as their surname. Gladys remains a Baxter until marrying William H Bennett in Oldham. I do wonder if the James on the school record is her guardian and not her father and they (his family) brought her up in Oldham.
