James HOPWOOD
« on: Sunday 18 September 16 07:48 BST (UK) »
1861 and other CENSUS says his birthplace was Llanglithlow/Llanglitho/Llangeitho Cardiganshire. He dies in 1884 in Ashton under Lyne, Lancs. He married Elizabeth Gough in 1831 in Manchester cathedral. Birth about 1811/1812. Can anyone point me in the right direction to find out more of his birth and parents please.  i have his children, one of whom emigrated to Australia.
Regards.

1861 just shows Wales but 1871 shows Llanlithlow Wales which could be Llangeitho.  1881 is the only one which specifies Cardigan

have you seen the parish entry for the 1831 marriage? Is there a Hopwood witness that may help?

There are no bmds on the GRO index registered in Cardiganshire until 1883, but there are plenty registered in Flintshire & Denbighshire.

I noticed that the 1851 has an entry for a James Hopwood b 1835 Wales working as a servant and living in Ashton under Lyne. The Piece number is also the same as that for James and Elizabeth - 2233 - which seems a bit of a coincidence.   

In 1841 he is with parents Thomas & Jane in Flintshire and shown as b Flintshire.  The 1851 also shows Thomas as b Flintshire 1791
