I have no information about your Whiteleys at Bolton in my research. There could be a connection but I am unaware of it. The trouble is that the spelling varies .
Seasons greetings
Joan.

Amongst your Whiteleys, is there a connection to Bolton area Isherwoods? I have a William Isherwood with a middle name of Whiteley, (presumably pre middle of 19th C connection from birthdate), and one or two Halifax area births?

Thank you, Michael Baldock, I'd actually seen that IGI entry, but the use of Whiteley as a middle name with the surname Isherwood predates that date, in my line. Thanks a lot, though, for kindly taking the trouble to help.
Threlfall (Southport), Isherwood (lancs & Canada), Newbould + Topliss(Derby), Keating & Cummins (Ireland + lancs), Fisher, Strong& Casson (all Cumberland) & Downie & Bowie, Linlithgow area Scotland . Also interested in Leigh& Burrows,(Lancashire) Griffiths (Shropshire & lancs), Leaver (Lancs/Yorks) & Anderson(Cumberland and very elusive)

Hiya, I have a photo of a woman called Ada Whitley who was cousin to Elizabeth Anne Broadbent, the latter was my mum's great aunt.My mum's family lived in Diggle.  I'm wondering if the Ada is the Ada you mention born in 1899. My mum's great aunt was still alive in the 1920's so it might fit.
