Ann, I wondered if Sarah Ann was actually a grandchild??

Have to go out for a while - will check back later!

The witnesses at the marriage to Ann Cross were obviously not connected to the couple as they appear on numerous other marriages at the church.

Of the births posted by Ann, Moses was reg Q4/1854, this looks like his burial

Burial: 19 Jan 1855 All Saints, Bolton, Lancashire, England
Moses Rostron -
Age: 10 weeks
Abode: Little Bolton
Buried by: C E Turner Incumbant
Register: Burials 1813 - 1856, Page 133, Entry 1060

Had a look at the tree on ancestry, they have quite a lot of details - including some birth certificates (not attached, but referred to). This is what they say about Sarah Ann:


Birth
1853
24 Dec
12,Green Street Little Bolton
Elizabeth give birth to Sarah Ann before she was married Sarah Ann was brought up by her grandparents Henry & Ann Rostron

They have William's birth 3/5/1847 at 36 Green Street, Little Bolton.

Although I realise trees can't always be relied on, this one does look fairly well researched. The tree owner's husband claims to be the grandson of Henry Rostron (18/6/1842-1929), ggs of Henry & Ann Cross.

Yes,saw those deaths and the possible births for Sarah Ann, shame there are 2 to choose from though!

However, if she was born Dec.53 (as per the ancestry tree) it must be this birth:

Births Dec 1853 (>99%)
ROSTRON Sarah Ann Bolton 8c 231

So the later one you have posted, the other was born in an earlier quarter.

Thinking about it more,that tree owner must have her baptism or birth cert to find dob?? Or is it just speculation??
