No reply yet. If we haven't heard by this evening my time we may have to look at a different strategy. I will have more time to play this evening.

I have PM'd you with a response. If you find anything which sorts this out let us all know. Might save some of us from going completely bald.

Hi ladies,
Sorry, I believe that I’ve caused the confusion here, with the 1871 & 1881 censuses info I posted of William Winders, with parents John & Elizabeth.
Having rechecked, I now believe this info is NOT the same William who married Ellen, you are looking for …… But which AS had pointed out, is that of the William who married Barbara.

These census results indicate this too;

1901 Census
William Winders, wife Barbora abt 1865 Eccleston, Lancashire, England Head St Helen, Lancashire

William Windus
[William Winders], wife Ellen abt 1871 St Helens, Lancashire, England Head St Helen, Lancashire
______________________________________________________

1891 Census
William Winders, wife Barbara abt 1865 St Helens, Lancashire, England Head Eccleston, Lancashire

William Winders, wife Ellen abt 1868 Manchester, Lancashire, England Head Eccleston, Lancashire

I have requested the residence at marriage addresses for William and Ellen from Susan. I will post when they come through.

Aunty's Ancestry contact is related to William and Barbara. She is also having trouble tracking down Susan's William. Will post when I get anything new.

His father is John Winders Glass Maker

Father Thomas Smith Labourer

Here is a summary, with some questions. I have printed off all the information, sorted it, weeded out the irrelevant and come up with this.


I wrote this bit at the end but it is better at the beginning

Need to go back to William Winders, (John b. 1839 father) and see if he had any brothers and any more children. That is where the line starts. Makes sense that William Winders the elder had a son called William as well as a son called John.

>>>>>>>Edit.
WILLIAM WINDER
Marriages:
Spouse: ELIZABETH DEWHURST Family
Marriage: 22 NOV 1836 Preston, Lancashire, England
one possibility.

Another possibility 1835 marriage is Dorothy Mount.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

William Winders, married ?? , siblings??

Children:
John Winders b. 1839
any more children???

John married (5 Sep 1864) Elizabeth Durdham b.1844 (father Ralph Durdham)

Annie (Anna) b. 1867

William b. 1865 married Ellen Taylor b. 1868 (father Thomas Smith, Labourer) on 22 Aug 1887 (Parish Registers)

Groom's father John Winders, Glass Maker

Ellen was not previously married, cert states spinster. Witness to marriage Mary Taylor.

William and Ellen Winders

So that whole sequence must also be yours. That is good because it means it does not contradict what we have for Susan's lot.

I find it weird that no one has a tree which follows Susan's Winders lineage. And believe me I have looked.

AuntySherlock

AuntySherlock Report 12 Feb 2010 10:55

Was going to delete that wrong info but I'll just edit it instead.. As we find things which fit Susan's info I will put them into the summary. That way everything will be together and in chronological order.

So far in the summary I have done of Susan's info I have not used any of your people. That is a relief. I have seen the records for Ann Dutton etc and now I know where she fits it it makes more sense.

Somewhere in antiquity the two lines must join.

If think the solution will be to find the children and siblings of William born about 1816.

I would like to have a thread with just the summary on it. Think and sort stuff out on this thread and then add the info to the summary thread as it is proven. That way I won't have to keep scrolling back and forwards all the time.

Yes I know would be easier to just fall on my sword rather than start a duplicate thread.

>>>>>>>1.1.1. William WINDERS was born about 1865 in Eccleston, Lancashire, England. >>>>>>>>He appeared in the census in

Is this the William we have marrying Ellen Taylor Smith in 1887. Birth certificate for him????

Edit. Birth certificate you have is for William born c1895.
