I am trying after many years to find a connection between the OLDFIELD and GOODWIN families. My gt. gt. grandmother MARY GOODWIN had a base born child ALFRED GOODWIN, born 1860 in Blackfriars, Southwark and the father was reputed to have come from Oldham, Lancs. she had the child registered/christened and took him to Oldham to get something "sorted" re the education of young Alfred. She came away with an anuity (the only one in my family!). I have found that Mary had a brother Edward Goodwin living in Eccleston by 1861 so perhaps she met the father when visiting her brother in Lancs. I would love to find any connection with the family through bastardy bonds, solicitors docs etc to clear up a big question in the family history. Any help appreciated Maggie

red mail Marian Ogden b 1798, Oldham
My great great great grandmother was called Marian (or Mary Ann) Ogden, and was born in Oldham supposedly on 16th April 1798, and married a John Rowland, Excise Officer, before 1833, subsequently living in Cheshire and various other towns. I am notsure where her birth or marriage is recorded. She lived to 84 and had a number of children and grandchildren in Cheshire area. Thanks a lot

Am trying to trace the Butterworth family that emigrated from Oldham in the 19th century, first to New Jersey to work in the coal mines, then to Canada.
red mail Bradbury In 1851 Census
Ralph BRADBURY had married Elizabeth (Betty) WINTERBOTTOM in 1839 at Ashton Under Lyne and by 1851 census was a mechanic and stated he was born in Oldham. No amount of church research has unearthed his name or his father John who on marriage cert wasa carder. Betty's father was a collier named John. By 1861 the family had moved to Wandsworth, Surrey and Ralph was an engine fitter. Probably in the Railway at Wandsworth. Last reading of Ralph and Elizabeth after rearing 12 children was in Oare Kent in 1881 census. Ages were 62 and 61yrs. Any other descendants into genealogy?
