Staffordshire / finding the parents of James & Abraham Slack
« on: Tuesday 26 November 19 16:48 GMT (UK)  »
After 2 years break from this search here we go again.   I am searching for the birth date of James & Abraham Slack.  (1821-1823).  They were born in Knotbury staffs, although Notbury & Norbury Staffs have come up probably a wrong transcription . I have found James on all the census' .  I  have his marriage cert and also his death cert but cannot find any date of his birth.   I would like to find out who his parents were and where they came from, although I feel that Knotbury is the key.   I am presuming that Abraham is James' brother as there is only 2 years between them, and they are both on the 1841 census working in Wildborclough Macclesfield. 

Cheshire Lookup Requests / please help find birth & burial place - James Slack
« on: Sunday 12 November 17 16:30 GMT (UK)  »
I am trying to find out where my gt grandfather was born and also where he is buried.  His name was James Slack and he was born around 1824 in, I think, either Norbury or Knotbury.  I also think he had a brother call Abraham who was born around 1822.  James died on the 13th January 1898 in Sutton Macclesfield Cheshire, but there are no records of his burial in that area.  I have done some searches and Longnor near Leek keeps being mentioned.  On the 1841/51 census it states that he was born in Norbury or (K) Notbury, and on subsequent census' it says born Wildborclough, and as Knotbury is next to Wildborclough it seems quite probable that Staffs is my missing link.  Until I find where he is either buried or was born and of course who were his parents,  I cannot get any further with my tree.  Any Help would be appreciated.

Can anyone please help.  I am trying to find out where James Slack is buried.  He was born around 1824 in Norbury/Notbury Staffordshire or Wildborclough Cheshire.  He died on the 13th February 1898 in Sutton Macclesfield Cheshire.  He was married to Margaret (Kemp), and she died around 1904/7 and is buried in Sutton Churchyard Maclesfield, with people we have never heard of.  I have exhausted my searches, and wonder if anyone can help if they are going to Chester Archives and do a search for me.   I cannot go forward with my family tree until I find out where James is buried.   I have his marriage certificate and it states his father was also called James, but that is all I know, and I would love to find out who his mother was and go further back.    thank you.

Staffordshire Lookup Requests / looking up place of birth
« on: Monday 28 March 16 14:46 BST (UK)  »
Is there anybody who could look up a place of birth and the parents of Abraham Slack  who was born around 1820/22 and James Slack who I think was his brother and was born about 1822/24 in Norbury Staffordshire. On the 1841 and 1851 census it says they were born in Staffordshire, but later census' say they were born in Wildborclough Cheshire.  I need this info to find out who his parents were, and also to find out where James is buried.  He died on the 13th February 1898 in Macclesfield Cheshire, but James Slack 1822/24 - 1898 is not listed as being buried in Macclesfield Cheshire.  Any help , please.  thank you

Staffordshire Lookup Requests / Where is James Slack buried?
« on: Sunday 10 January 16 17:15 GMT (UK)  »
I have been searching for 3 years to find where James Slack is buried and wonder if anyone  is going to the record office and can  do a search for me please.  James was born around 1824 .  On the 1841 & 51 census it says that he was born in Norbury Staffordshire, I think it could be Knotbury, as on the following census' it says he was born in Wildborclough Macclesfield Cheshire.  Knotbury is very near Wildborclough.  James Married Margaret Kemp in 1854 and they lived in Dirty Lane Sutton Macclesfield Cheshire, and was a calico printer.  He died on the 13th February 1898, which I know is right, as I have his inquest report, and a copy of his death cert.    I have been trying to find his place of birth and also who his parents were for nearly 3 years,  and even after joining Ancestry I have had no luck.  I cannot get any farther without this information. Please can anyone help.   Thankyou.

I have tried in vain  to find James Slack's place of birth and also who his parents were.  I have 2 places of birth.  Wildborclough Macclesfield & Norbury Staffordshire. This could also be Knotbury as it is next to Wildborclough.  James was born around 1824 and lived most of his life in Sutton Macclesfield, after Marrying Margaret Kemp in 1854.He was a calico printer and died on the 13th February 1898 in Sutton Macclesfield.  I have searched and searched without success, and I wonder if anyone is going to Chester, or even Staffordshire record office and could do a bit of searching for me there.  I would be most grateful.   I have got no where even after joining Ancestry

Eileen Slack   Thank you.
