Lancashire / Etchell/Etchells in Failsworth, Newton Heath,
« on: Friday 31 October 08 17:19 GMT (UK)  »
Looking for anyone else researching the Etchells/Etchell family of Failsworth, Newton Heath, and Manchester in Lancashire.

Earliest name I have is James Etchells b est 1780-1790,  his son was Luke b abt 1807 Failsworth  d Mar Qtr 1877 in Prestwich District.  Luke was a silkworker and m Nancy ? b about 1804 Failsworth.  Their son, Daniel b 1837 Failsworth  who m Sarah ? is our family line,  but I believe that Daniel also had a brother Charles b abt 1843 Failsworth.   I think there were probably other siblings.

I am researching family of James SWALES and Harriet Jane TYZACK who migrated to the Isle of Man from Yorkshire in the late 1870s.  So far I have the following:

SWALES, James b abt 1848 Wolverhampton, Staffordshire  d 8 Jan 1935 Malew, IOM. He was a watchmaker.
  m1) Harriet Jane TYZACK b 1852 Sheffield  d Sep 1881 Malew, IOM (her last name is listed as SHEFFIELD on birth record for Frances)

---Vere Lawrence b 1871 Sheffield, Yorkshire   m Lucy WELLS or WILLS

---Ada L b 1873 Sheffield, Yorkshire

---William Edward b 1876 Yorkshire  d 1950 Rushen, IOM   m Adelaide Lillian TYSON

---Frances Charlotte b Apr 1879 Malew, IOM

 m 2) Emma Elizabeth WALLACE  b abt 1866 d 1936 Malew, IOM

I am interested because of the connection to a branch of our TYZACK family.  I have information to share on them.
If you know this SWALES family, please reply or contact me.

William TYZACK d 18 Jun 1872  at age 51  in Doncaster.  Listed in BMD  Vol 9c p 391.

 His family was living in Doncaster,  Christ Church parish in 1871.     

Burial was Jun 20 at 'the cemetery Doncaster' according to a funeral card.

Could someone please check the NBI for which cemetery in Doncaster?

I am planning a visit from the States this fall and would like to find his grave.
