I don't think the Ann Jane that died in Cropper Street is the same infant.
There are two families with different jobs etc. but an unusual coincidence of names.
The Cropper St mother was also Jane and I believe the father may have been George but they were a different family.

Yes that is the marriage of George and Mary Sutcliff I referred to.

I believe his first wife was Jane and they lived in Sweeting Street Liverpool until her death.
This is where all the children of George and Jane were born.  I think she may have died with the birth of their last child Ann Jane.
There is no account of a James Henry being born except as child of Henry Meadows also a basket maker and his wife also named Mary in 1832 which fits timelines.
I wondered if it was possible he was adopted by George. Unless of course anyone can find records for James Henry Davies.

Yes of course.
He was born in Liverpool.I cannot find his birth or death registrations
He married Elizabeth Ann Grimshaw in 1856
He appears in the 1861 and 1871 census
There are birth registrations for a James Henry and Philip with parents James Henry and Ann Davies in 1875 also marriage registrations for some of his children with his name and occupation.

Thank you

Hello. I am having great difficulty trying to trace information about the birth etc. of James Henry Davies, born about 1832-4. His father on wedding registration is George Davies a basket maker. James was also a basket maker. George was married to Jane Brook who died about 1832 and he remarried. Possible a woman called Sutcliffe, possibly someone called Meadows. There is a James Henry Meadows whose father was also a basket maker about the same time. It is possible that James was adopted and changed his name. I would be grateful for any advice..The tree they are on is just called Davies.

Many thanks to both Nephi29 and Maiden Stone. You have been very helpful. Hard to believe it was 2017 when I first posted regarding Herdman family.

I am still trying to sort many of them out but I do believe there may be a common ancestor. Possibly Gawine Heardman in the early 1600s. Laurence Herdman you mention is a distinct, although I am sure related, family. For the line I am following one of the keys is Edward Herdman born in 1777. He was a farmer who worked and had children born in various places throughout Lancs and ended up a pub/hotel owner in Birkenhead (at least I hope he did). Actually various people of the ones you identify had careers in various aspects of the alcohol trade.

Thanks again

There is a Middleton which is a historic part of Lancaster but tying it in with Prestwich, Ainsworth and
St Leonard's Church I have tended to ignore the John and Sarah Hardman marriage as being the one I am after. Do you know if the person researching Herdman has links to WG Herdman of Liverpool?

Hi, No idea where Paddock is but on the info I saw she is down as Prestwich. The Church was St Leonard's, Middleton and John Hardman from Ainsworth. All around Bury. Same date etc.
There are a lot of interconnected Herdmans in and around the area and up as far as Cumbria. It is often difficult to separate the families as the names are frequently duplicated.
