George Mellor

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Linda Report 9 Oct 2012 18:34

I am trying to find any information about george mellor born 1849 he has put prestolee on the 1881 census, I think this is in the Bolton area of Lancashire, I know that he married Fanny or Fannie in 1870 and what children they had but I cannot find anything before the 1871 census when he was just married and his sister Mary was living with them. If the marriage record that I am looking at is correct it gives his father as William and his brides maiden name as walker

Any help would be appreciated
