I think it means of this parish or town but would like to know exactly what it means

Cheshire / Re: Windmill Square - Macclesfield

I recently found some more information about one of the people I mentioned in this thread way back when. I include here in case anyone findss the thread and wanted to add to my previous information.

This concerns Ellen Swindells, who took over the provisions dealer shop on the corner of Windmilll Street and Black Road. She was named by Edward as his sister in law, yet tracing her back seemed problematic, the range of different birthplaces was wide, at her second marriage she gave her father's name as Thomas Oliver.

Well I eventually found that she was born to Thomas Oliver and Jane Lomas. They appear tio have posssibly had two marriages , 1809 in Bakewell  and 1819 in Hartington, both Derbyshire.
Ellen was born about 1812, no baptism found. I the previous marriage was not this couple then it explains why Ellen LOmas married James Jackson in 1833.

James died in 1867, and Ellen remarried Samuel Swindells in 1868, but he died 18 months later.

I am glad to have partly sorted this out,though it hasn't helped me trace the Jacksons back!
