Look for his marriage on Lancs OPC

Or the baptisms of his children

In that case, you'll need to visit the Records Office

Haslingden's records have gaps on Lancs opc, but are otherwise quite comprehensive.

Looks like Mary may have made it to the 1841 census - in Haslingden according to FMP, but I'm not seeing this on Ancestry. Burial 9/2/1842 age 77 looks like a possibility for her.

Thank you Flip for the extra information really appreciated

There's a possible marriage on family search for Charles to Mary Heys 20/9/1783 at Haslingden, but there appears to be a gap in the parish marriage records from around March 1783 to April 1784 - either they've missed transcribing the period or the pages are missing. I think the only way to check would be through the records office, unless there is something in LANCAT (Lancashire archives online catalogue) but their search engine appears to be playing up at the moment.

Charles's parents William Holt and Hannah Woolwoork married 07/04/1744 at Haslingden, Lancashire, England are my 6 x great grandparents...
