I also found all this information Edward Wrigley was brought up by his grandparents William Taylor and Hannah.
I'm stumped as to finding my great grandfathers birth Edward Wrigley born 1845 there is a record for another Edward Wrigley but parents are different no relation.
Hey Ho I'll just keep plodding on.

There's a tree on ancestry has Edward as marrying as Edward Taylor in 1864 to Ann Frost Nuttall. He names his father as William Taylor, plumber but that's obviously who brought him up.

How certain are you that Edward was a sibling of the two whose baptisms you have found?

Are they all together on a census with the mother?

Trying to find baptism for Edward Wrigley born 1844/45 manchester his sister Mary Ann Wrigley baptisted @ manchester cathedral in 1839 mother Elizabeth Wrigley is a spinster.
I have also found his brother Joseph Wrigley born 1849 bapisted @ manchester cathedral Elizabeth Wrigley a spinster.
Elizabeth Wrigley seems to have no brothers or sisters which doesn't help in my search.
Could anyone out there shed a bit of light ?
Many Thanks Christine Wadsworth
