My confusion with where william blease was born comes from older relatives who have passed away saying that he came from bollington/ macclesfied area. This is why im desperate to see on a census where it says he was born

Adam, perhaps his birthplace is wrong on 1901 census.

Here's 1881 Blease family at Ormes Smithy (Cottage), Rainow, Macclesfield:

George Head Age 63 Born Old Withington, Cheshire  Blacksmith       
Rachel Wife Age 61 Born Stokeash, Stafford
William Son Age 27 Born Bollington, Cheshire  Cotton Winder       
Thomas Son Age 22 Born Rainow, Cheshire  Cotton Winder       
Martha Ann HOLT Daur Age 19 Born Rainow   Card Room Hand Cotton       
Tom HOLT  Grand Son Age 5 m Born Rainow, Cheshire

RG11 3490 / 21 Page 17

This seems probable given that he had children named George and Martha, but William's marriage certificate will confirm or disprove.

Found a death notice in Liverpool Journal 27th Jan 1849:
10th inst, Mary aged 61, wife of Thomas OWEN of Pickmere only dau the late John BLEASE Marston Hall nr Northwich

Morgan, this is my Blease family - Thomas Owen and Mary Blease are my 3xggrandparents and John Blease (Mary's father) farmed at Marston Hall.  If you are connected, or have any more information please send me a PM so that we don't hijack Adam's post!

Adam, spelling can vary hugely.  I've come across Blease, Bleaze, Bleeze, Bleese, Blees and even Blaize.  If all the other information matches what you know and the name is fairly unusual I think you can be pretty confident it is the right marriage.

I'm not connected but just trying to help Adam identify his ancestors  :)

As you say, it is a fairly unusual surname so there could be a connection somewhere between your ancestors and Adam's.

I have just been on Cheshire bmd and the marriage that was found of william bleaze (spelt with a 'z') and annie evans is listed as william blease (correct spelling) on cheshire bmd.
Does anybody know if the records are transcribed from a different source, ie - church records?
Im just confused as to why they are spelt differently?
