Denton Buffaloes

I am attaching a photograph of a group of men Belonging to the Royal Antidiluvian Order of Buffaloes. The man seated far left is believed to be George Wilshaw my GGrandmother Annie Wilshaw's brother. The Wilshaw family lived at 79 Kynder Street Denton in 1901. Annie married Albert Greenhalgh in 1908 and lived at 2 Off Clayton Street Denton. I would be interested to know if you have any information about the group of men such as what year it might have been or members of the families mentioned in general.

Can anyone help identify the location of this marriage?

My best guess is that it was taken in the 1930s somewhere in Stockport

The Stockport Plebs League 1930s

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I have done a bit of Googling this evening on "Plebs". It appears it means the "Plebs League" a forerunner of the Workers Education Association and was founded in 1908 at Ruskin College, Oxford. Now I understand why my grandfather was so "into" Esperanto and hands across the oceans etc.

Granddad, Harry Seddon is the fine dapper looking chap in the middle with the little moustache to the right of the young lady in the light coat. I have scanned the photo and I think it has come out quite well. There may be others in the MLFHS who had relatives in the union movement in Stockport who may be interested perhaps.

ELIZA SMITH - DOLLY & JOE GARSIDEHARNEY from DENTON

In the early part of 1930's an ELIZA SMITH widow then in her early 70's lived at 13 Peter Street, Denton with her 'daughter' Dolly. Dolly married around this time JOE GARSIDE and sometime after it is believed the couple moved to the Gorton area of Manchester where JOE died before DOLLY. ELIZA died about 1935-9.

Nothing can be found on ELIZA and DOLLY as no E.R.'s seem to exist and the local Directories for the time for some reason do not seem to include Peter Street.

Help ! Does anyone know anything about ELIZA SMITH at 13 Peter Street, Denton ? Any information would be so helpful.

Thank you, Jane: jane.tegg@btinternet.com

GEE Family DNA Project

There is a new DNA project for the GEE families. We are looking for males from the GEE family, in Stockport, Manchester, Leistershire, Rothley, Cheshire, Yorkshire and other areas in the UK.

We are tracing the Gee family back to France, as it is theorized all GEE's may have originated in one or two villages in France, under different spellings. There may be financial help toward the cost of testing.

Howard, Booth, Kenworthy, Turner, Hassall, Bates, Leech

Who is this Mystery Man???
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I am submitting the following for your message board along with a photo which I hope is not too large. I am searching for the descendants of Robert Howard (b. abt. 1800) and his wife Sarah (Sally)(nee Booth b. abt. 1800 in Dukinfield). In 1841, they lived at Hurst Brook in Ashton under Lyne. Robert was a collier.

They had the following children: William (b. 1819, married Nancy Taylor), Andrew (b.1821), Mary (b. 1823, married Theophilus Hassal), Anne (b. 1827, married Charles Bates), Samuel (b. 1830, married Eliza Hilton 1850), Elizabeth (b. 1832), Jane (b. 1834), James (b. 1837), Sarah (b. 1839),

  • Phebe (b. 1842, married James Leech).
  • Samuel and Eliza Howard had 2 daugthers: Amelia (b. 1851) and Eliza Ellen (b. 1855).
  • Amelia married William Kenworthy in 1872. In the 1901 census, Amelia's son Thomas Kenworthy (b.1872) was a grocer in Stalybridge living with his wife Mary and their son Regent/Reginald (b.1900).
  • Eliza married James Turner in 1882 and they had several children.
  • Samuel left his family and emigrated to Canada between 1861 and 1869.

He brought this picture with him to Canada. This mystery man's portrait was taken at J.H. Platt's studio in Market Street, Ashton. He is likely a Howard as he bears a family resemblance. I would like to hear from anyone who may have a connection to this family. Allison Howard

GREENHALGH Family Audenshaw

My GGGGrandfather was James Greenhalgh a tailor born in Bury in 1796. He moved to Audenshaw around 1820 and married local girl Elizabeth Winterbottom . They lived at Cross Gate and had son's Geoffrey, Jesse, Denis and Orlando and a daughter Mary who died at birth.

James was widowed in 1839 and the following year married Elizabeth's sister Sarah Winterbottom at Manchester Cathedral. The following year they had a son James. Mother and baby died at birth.

Seven years later James married Elizabeth (Betty) Newton from Audenshaw at St Michael and All Angels Ashton-U-Lyne. The same year James's son Denis died and the following year James and Betty had a son which they named Denis.

James is mentioned in the local Trade Directory of 1832 by 1851 he employed four Journeyman tailors plus son Geoffrey and had a 17 Acre farm, which I think was a Dairy Farm. His son Orlando is down as being a cowboy. James was also the Deputy Registrar for the area and a surveyor.

In 1851 he and his family lived in Cock Lane which I am told is now Stamford Road. His son Jesse married Clara (Clarry) Hilton and they lived in Guide Lane.

If anyone out there is connected to this family I would love to hear from them.

I am researching my CHORLTON family tree from Ashton u Lyne, and would be interested in any information that is available.

In 1861 I have the following at 304 John Street, Ashton Town, Ashton under Lyne,

  • 1826 Henry CHORLTON, born Ashton u Lyne
  • 1829 Ann CHORLTON, Wife (born Ann CLEGG, in Yorkshire)
  • 1861 Betty CHORLTON, 6 Mths old

  • 1861 Betty CHORLTON, Daut, Scholar
  • 1864 Ellis CHORLTON, Son, Scholar
  • 1870 John CHORLTON, Son,

In 1881 they had moved to 306 John St., Ashton Under Lyne, and Ann's sister, Grace CLEGG had moved in with them.

By 1901 Ellis Chorlton (born 1864) was a Mineral Water Traveller, and had married Harriet STACKHOUSE, and they had the following children, all born in Ashton Under Lyne:

  • 1890 James H Chorlton

  • 1897 Ann CHORLTON
  • 1899 Henry CHORLTON
  • 1901 John CHORLTON

Going back to 1851, I am stuck with this as a possibility:

Living in Ashton-Under-Lyne was this family, and I wonder if they are related to me via the above:

  • 1788 Henry Chorlton Born Ashton-Under-Lyne A Tinman
  • 1815 Phebe Chorlton Daughter Born Ashton-Under-Lyne
  • 1828? Henry Chorlton Son Ashton-Under-Lyne - Tinman

HAMILTON SEARCH IN ASHTON, DUKINFIELD AND HURST

James Hamilton married Jane McMurray in Ireland in 1820's and moved to Ashton-under Lyne post 1845. They were both Irish and born in 1805 and 1808 respectively.

They brought several children with them from Ireland and Hans Hamilton was born in AUL in 1851. He had a son, James Robert born in 1875, then Thomas William in 1882 and Alexander in 1884 with his first wife Eliza Shaw. Then with his second wife, Mary Woodcock another son George in 1915 (yes, I know that made him 64 years old but it is correct)

There was several girls in both marriages too, but I haven't got very far with them yet.

Anyone else chasing Hamilton's around AUL, Dukinfield, Hurst areas? Just love to find out where James and Jane finished up.

Searching for ROBERT SHAW's family

I am researching the family of my husband, Robert Shaw. We know that his ggrandfather was John Shaw (widower) who married Mary nee Booth Pennington (widow) on July 15th 1866 at St. Mary's parish church in Stockport. They lived in Staleybridge and were the parents of 1 son, Daniel, born May 6th, 1867.

On the marriage certificate, John is shown to be a cylinder maker and on Daniel's birth cerificate he is shown to be a blacksmith. On the 1871 cencus he is a millwright.

On the marriage certificate, John's father is listed as William, cylinder maker Mary's father is listed as Daniel Booth, showmaker. Obviously, John was married before and we don't know if there were children. We do know that Mary was married to Peter Pennington and that there were a number of children as they are shown on the census of 1871.

If anyone has ANY information on this family we would be grateful to hear from you.

Thank you very much,

SHEPLEY and BROWNRIDGE "brickwalls"

Hello, Friends,

I have a couple of brick walls with surnames SHEPLEY and BROWNRIDGE which I hope SKS can help me demolish.

First is the family of my 2x ggrandmother Ann SHEPLEY. About 1830 she married John MOTTRAM b. 1799 Broughton Lancs. Her death was registered at Ashton Ap/Jun 1881.

Thanks to a wonderful MOTTRAM cousin, I have John's pedigree well documented to abt 1738. Yet this couple's marriage date and location and her pedigree have eluded us.

I have the family in all censuses from 1841 where they are living at Fold, Staley. In 1851 they are at Carrbrook as follows:

HO107/2239 - page 2 - folio 316 - sch 6 - Carrbrook.
John MOTTRAM - head - mar - 52 - colour mixer - born Lancashire,Broughton.
Ann MOTTRAM - wife - mar - 43 - at home - born Lancashire, Manchester.
Mary MOTTRAM - dgt - 19 - reeler cotton - born Cheshire, Micklehurst.
Sarah Ann MOTTRAM - dgt - 17 - reeler cotton - Cheshire, Staly.
Esther MOTTRAM - dgt - 15 - reeler cotton - born Cheshire, Staly.
Jane MOTTRAM - dgt - 13 - scholar - born Cheshire, Staly.
Elizabeth MOTTRAM - dgt - 10 - scholar - born Cheshire, Staly.
Hannah MOTTRAM - dgt - 8 - scholar - born Cheshire, Micklehurst.
William MOTTRAM - son - 5 - scholar - born Cheshire, Micklehurst.
Ann MOTTRAM - dgt - 2 - born Cheshire, Micklehurst.".

I see from 1811 censuses that there are a few SHEPLEY families in the area. I hope that someone researching SHEPLEY might recognize her.

The second stumbling block is Mary BROWNRIDGE b. Lancashire abt 1766. She married Ralph MOTTRAM [father of John above] at Cathedral Manchester in 1792. Ralph died bet 1839/1841. Mary died in 1841 age 73, and is buried at St Michael's Church, Mottram-in-Longdendale. She is found in the 1841 census at Carrbrook as follows:

HO107/102 - page 2 - folio 4. - Carrbrook.civ par Mottram in Longden Dale, Macclesfield Hundred, reg dist Ashton under Lyne, sub reg dist Stayley. Addr: Carrbrook, Micklehurst, Cheshire
MOTTRAM Mary - 70 - not born in this county
Thomas MOTTRAM - 25 - printer - not born in this county.
Ellen MOTTRAM - 25 - not born in this county.
Mary MOTTRAM - 4 - yes born in this county.
Elizabeth MOTTRAM - 1 - yes born in this county.
Thomas MOSLEY - 25 - printer - not born in this county.
Thomas BENTLEY - 25 - carter - not born in this county.

Thanks for any assistance.

Does anyone recognize the people in this picture?

Hello Friends, Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket







This is the family of my ggrandparents taken about 1892 shortly before their emigration to the US. Standing top right is Gideon VAUTREY, seated to his right is his wife Ann nee MOTTRAM. On the floor, Stanley age 12 and Ann Ellen 10. Behind Ann Ellen is Mary Ann 22. One son, Emmitt age 16 is not with the group.

The couple at left is a puzzle to me. The man might be Ann's cousin, either John SHAW age 29 or Joseph SHAW age 27. The Shaw boys were b. Staley. Their last known residence was at Spring Bank, Staley in 1881, with their grandmother Ann MOTTRAM [nee SHEPLEY] in a household that also included the VAUTREYs.

I can't find the Shaws after 1881. Their parents were Joe SHAW and Esther MOTTRAM, married in 1862.

I'm hoping someone researching SHAW will recognize the names so we can share information.

I am seeking information about the death of Mr Robert (Bob) B Morris

Late of 54 Heron Drive, Audenshaw, Manchester M345QX Ė this being the last address known for him up to around two years ago.

He lived in Johannesburg, South Africa for a number of years which is where I met him, but he had moved back to the UK in the 80ís. Other friends in Australia who had maintained contact with him had a holiday with Bob in 2000 where they visited various friends including some in the UK. Two years ago a Christmas card was returned to my friends in Australia by a kind lady whose husband had bought Bobís flat, saying it was from a deceased estate. However, when my Australian friend wrote to the lawyer who did the paperwork he denied any dealings with Bob so no one has been able to find out what happened to him.

We would all like to know what happened to Bob so if anyone can shed some light on the subject we would be most grateful. Please feel free to contact me on any of the contact details set out below.
