Hi   I've just seen the run of messages on Daniel Croxford of Shude Hill.  He is an ancestor of mine also, his son George married Ellen Picker in Feb 1852 and their daughter Eliza Ellen married Joseph Pink of Liverpool.  George Croxford is on the 1841 census aged 9 but he was not at home on the 1851 census.  Ellen Picker was working for Daniel Croxford, her future father in law, in 1851 listed as an assistant.  She was the daughter of Frederick Picker, a travelling salesman, later a manufacturer, born in Helpringham, Lincolnshire in 1811.

Daniel Croxford was born in Wendover, Bucks, as seen on the 1851 census and I have the record of his baptism taken from the parish register.  The Croxfords are part of a long line of yeomen farmers and carpenters from Wendover.  I have a copy of the will of Daniel's grandfather George Croxford of Wendover, which is a lovely old town/village set at the foot of the Chiltern Hills.

I've long wanted to see where Daniel Croxford had his shop on Shude Hill and to know more about the Manchester side.

Chris (as in Christine)

Hi Chris....George Croxford,s daughter married my Grandfather..Samuel  at the time the Croxfords had a hatbox factory in Seel Street in Liverpool...family legend has it that Ellen ran away to marry Samuel..probably not true...i did go to look at the shop site in shude hill but alas it is now a hotel..why the Croxfords moved to Manchester i don't know..or why the move to Liverpool....
