1861 Census

Name: Robert Whitworth
Age: 56
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1805
Relation: Bl;bo
Gender: Male
Where born: Rochdale, Lancashire, England

Civil parish: Bury
Ecclesiastical parish: St Paul
Town: Bury
County/Island: Lancashire
Country: England

Registration district: Bury
Sub-registration district: North Bury

William Taylor 64 b.ca 1797, Heap, Lancashire, Watchman at a Cotton Mill
Martha Taylor 51 b.ca 1810, Heap, Lancashire, Wife
Robert Whitworth 56 Brother-in-law, Boarder, Farm Servant

Address:- 7 Roach Court


I can find a possible Alice b.ca 1842 as a Boarder and living in Heap. Uncertain about James


and no Alice born in ca 1813.


It looks as though Alice might have died, and the family dispersed.

Re James and Hannah marriage above.

James father was indeed Robert, a weaver.

You can see the parish register entry here:

https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/TH-1-159376-709653-72?cc=1788853&wc=MMGS-H6G:472541942


Unfortunately though, this 'might' be his baptism which shows his mother to be Eliza, not Alice?? - Either way, it shows that the marriage could belong to either of the James's. ?
