I think there is a 'Friendship Yard' as well looking at an 1874 map.

Hi all,
Is it possible to search the UK Census for a specific address on Ancestry? I've forgotten.
I'm specifically looking for entries for 75 Huddersfield Road, Stalybridge, Cheshire from 1871, 81, 91, 1901 &/or 1911 Censuses.
Many thanks in advance
Jason.

Don't we all have fascinating people in our families? Thank you for your input

Andrew,

Thank you for that tip. There was one daughter so I might be able to trace her.

Mazi no that's incorrect. Old St George's church in Stalybridge opened in the 1770s.

The Common Room / Illegitimate batisms early 1800s

Hello all,

Hope you are all having a good weekend? I have a fairly general question about illegitimate baptisms in the early 1800s. My particular ancestor, one Susanna/Susan Hassall b.1780 (possibly Staffs.) had a child John Hassall b.1805 in Stalybridge, Cheshire. John was baptised at the parish church in the next town Ashton-under-Lyne, Lancs. giving Susanna as the mother but no father was named. On checking through the Bastardy Accounts for the church there was no application made for financial support (which I've been told would have led to Susanna being required to name John's father?). I infer from this that Susanna and her child must've had support either from the father privately and/or from her own family? Am I right to assume this?
Secondly, looking through the same church records I have found 4 other illegitimate children baptised over the next 11 years (1805-1816) all born to a Susanna/Susan Hassall of Stalybridge and again no fathers named. Given the rarity of the Hassall name in this area this surely has to be my Susanna and what can really have been going on here? To have 5 illegitimate children and not apply to the church for financial support? Also I assume she had them baptised away from her local parish church to avoid gossip and rumour?

Many thanks in advance,
Jason.

Thank you *bevj*
I've been scouring wills to try and discover a link between this Hassall branch and my own in Stalybridge, Cheshire.
