Rootie - I think the middle name of Ashworth may be an indication that Fanny had a relationship after Philip's death? Philip being named as father seems to be that phenomenon of a dead man being the father of his wife's subsequent children.

rootgatherer Report 15 Mar 2013 19:57

Yes, I thought that was possible MarieCeleste. For some reason I thought it odd that Fanny had Maud and Alfred baptised together after Philip's death. Wonder what excuse she gave the Vicar for Philip's absence at the baptism?

Sheila

Sheila Report 15 Mar 2013 20:14

I think Philip Puxley ,Mathematical Instrument maker is the right person as son Philip was a Mathematical divider as was an uncle William Rothwell b Hoxton.1901 census..
Please would it be possible to find when father Philip died and who were his parents also parents of his wife.
Thanks to everyone for all your help.

I think this would be worth checking out. I think this Philip may be the brother of Francis and also the man that your Philip is named for. Also the son Philip on this census may be the Sawyer who had children baptised around the same time as your Philip's daughter Maud was baptised.

Thank you MarieCeleste the date you found for Thursia L matches with the 1901 census that I was given by a relation that was of no use to her.
The extra information you have given me is a great help.
