Hi Valerie.
When you say 'trying to find the family', what is it you are trying to find out? You have marriage and names of children so not sure what you are looking for!

I just wonder if Thomas was actually born Whitworth and not Bevington, but for some reason took on the name Bevington. Have looked for a Whitworth/Bevington marriage but not seeing one - maybe his mother lived with a Mr Bevington and changed their name?

That 1911 census posted by Jan, showing mother Anna a widow is interesting. I can't see a birth for any of those children in Bolton. Also, Anna states married 21 years (3 children) but there is no sign of a marriage for her that I can see. Can't seem to be able to locate this family in 1901.

hi

sorry for the delay getting back , I have had internet problem's.

I found a death for Lilian Whitworth Bevington on Deceased online she was the daughter of the above Thomas , I have viewed the Grave and she is with Whitworth family member's, I have found the birth's of some Whitworth Children and their mother 's name was either Barrington, Bebington or Bevington her name as been transcribed differently for each child they are registered as Whitworth. I also found the Baptism of William Thomas Whitworth 08-12-1872 St John the Evangelist church Farnworth, Parent's John and Sarah William is in the grave with Lilian

Is it possible they might be in the census record's as Whitworth's.

Regard's

I can't locate Anna's family either.
Interestingly, an Ancestry tree has a Thomas Whitworth Bevington born 1900 to Joseph Bevington and Annie. No sign of a birth either as far as I can tell. I can't figure them out at all!

Following that 1861 family through, they are the parents of William Thomas who is in that grave.

ADDED; I've followed all the males from the John & Sarah's family, there were quite a few of them by 1871 - and none have a child to match Thomas. Struggling with 2 of the females (Margaret Whitworth can be eliminated ADDED - she is the one who married Sumner) but can't seem to get anything on Mary or Sarah.

Going backwards Sarah & Margaret Bevington's parents were Edward & Jane, who had a number of children from 1822 onwards (lan-opc).

I can't make head nor tail of it either, so you're not on you own Jan!
