Cheshire Lookup Requests / Re: James Slack. 3 yrs searching, please help
« on: Wednesday 27 November 19 12:42 GMT (UK)  »
I now think that James Slack was born in Knotbury, which is near Wildborclough Macclesfield,.  Although Macclesfield is in Cheshire Knotbury is on the border of Staffordshire. His father was also called James and was a labourer, James' birth and his mother are unknown to me

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.

Thanks to everyone with all the advice  I have now found out that James Slack (1823/24)  is buried in Sutton Churchyard Macclesfield .  Unfortunately when he died on the 13th January 1898 the incumbent forgot to write down the grave number, so although I know he is there I don't know which grave he is in.   Thanks again to everyone.

Thank you .  The Longnor connection looks promising, I will look into it.    Also it states on his marriage cert to Margaret Kemp, that his father was also called James, but it does not say whether he was still alive on that date.  I am beginning to think there are other first names involved other than James.  I also think James had a younger brother called Abraham, and they worked together in Wildborclough.   

Cheshire Lookup Requests / please help find birth & burial place - James Slack

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.

Thank you everyone for helping in my search.    You wanted to know who was mentioned on the wedding certificate.   James Slack (1824) was 30  when he married Margaret Kemp on the 18th January 1854 .   James 's father was listed also as James and was a labourer.  The witnesses were Henry James Bryan and Thomas Holland.  It does not say that James Snr was dec'd, so he must have still been alive on that date.

Thank you everyone who has searched for me in looking for James Slack's burial place (1824-1898).  I am now going to concentrate on the Longnor Staffs area, and maybe try and get to that area to search.   Thanks again everyone, for all your work, I will keep on trying to find where he is buried and indeed his true place of birth.    A few people have suggested that Abraham Slack is his brother, and I am also thinking along those lines.   I have found out  that quite a few of the Slack family moved to the Hyde/Stalybridge in the 1900's, so I wonder if there is a connection there.   Thanks again.

Thank you everyone for all your information regarding the burial place of James Slack.  I am getting the feeling that he could have been either buried in or around Leek Staffs or Hyde Cheshire.   As you know on the census' it states that he was born in Norbury Staffs, which could have been Knotbury as it is very close to Wildborclough, and as to the Hyde connection, some of the Slack family lived in the area including his son.  The address in Hyde was Ivy Cottage Joel Lane Hyde Cheshire.  Perhaps he is buried in that area, although his wife Margaret who died in 1904, and died at her son's address in Hyde, is buried in Sutton Macclesfield .    All very mysterious.  Looking through all the searches, I can see that there are loads of James Slacks' in the winsford area, but I don't think these are connected.  The only problem I have, is that there are a lots of James Slacks' in the Sutton Macclesfield area as well.  I will have to get back to drawing board I think  Thanks everyone.

Thank you to everyone for their help and advice in my search.  On James' marriage certificate to Margaret Kemp it states that his father was also called James .  I am now thinking that perhaps there were other first names although they were known as James.  James snr was present at the wedding of James & Margaret Kemp on the 18th January 1854. and was listed as a labourer.  On the 1841/51  it shows the address as Bank Edge Wildborclough.  This is also in the Parish of Prestbury.  He was living with an Abraham Slack who was a calico printer as was James so I am presuming they were brothers.  I have spoken to the Vicar of Sutton Church and he can't find any records relating to James' burial.  I will keep searching.   thank you again
