They seem to have changed religions.
I would try the parish records of the United Free Church on Lever Street as 2 children married there.
Or any other Methodist/ Weslyan Methodist Church in the area

Thanks Amondg - will look into it

Maybe the simplest solution is that John Jones and Jane Bratton didn't marry.  So the children used both names but generally used their mother's maiden name for legal documents  :-\

It is coming back to me why I abandoned researching this line and looked at others ::)

Mary Bratton Jones appears to be very like her relatives  :) :)

Hello,

I don't know. Joseph Hattersley was my 3x great grandfather. I have his marriage to Mary Bratton Jones and their line forward but nothing more on them.

The point at which I am at is that Sarah could be Joseph's sister

That John Bratton Jones and Mary Bratton Jones could be brother and sister.

If that is so and the second John Bratton Jones marriage is the same person as the first one (which looks likely as the second one is of a widower) then Mary's father would be Robert Jones, farmer.

Although Hattersley is not a particularly common name it is quite big in Manchester!

Sorry Brie I missed your post - I am still confused about the Bratton Jones generations but with JB Jones listed as born about 1781 in 1841 - 30 years older than your Mary - I am coming round to him being the father your Mary Bratton Jones born 1810 Colebrookdale, Phillis Bratton born 1812 Colebrookdale (Ladyhawk found) and Joseph B Jones born about 1820 Manchester with the siblings grandfather being Robert Jones - farmer   :-\

Thank you so much Ladyhawk.   I saw the marriage on Anc but the notes re the birth place are only on LPC Online

Thank you also for the burials - I don't suppose JB Jones is buried at  Manchester Cheetham Hill Wesleyan Cemetery between 1847-51??   Are the records available online?

Kay

He was the only John Bratton Jones found on F M P Manchester Cemetery Records. There are quite a few named John Jones and some buried at Manchester Ardwick Cemetery. 

Can you remind me of his year of birth that would help to narrow down all the JJ's

Thanks - He is listed as about 60 in 1841 - but looking at deaths on the GRO Index he may well have been younger - as it's on F M P will also have a look

I've just remembered that I did find some Bratton Jones on the Lancs On Line Parish Clerk

http://www.lan-opc.org.uk/Search/indexp.html

If you put Bratton in the forename box and Jones in the surname it turns up 5 references

Brie

Thanks - the other Bratton Jones you found relate to the side I am researching.   I wonder if Sarah Hattersley who married JB was a sister of Joseph Hattersly??
