Dickinson and Whitaker
« Reply #9 on: Friday 09 April 04 21:02 BST (UK) »
I'm looking for information on my Dickinson family that came from Stockport/Dukinfield/Ashton Under Lyne area.  William Dickinson, born about 1814 and wife Sarah Whittaker, also born about 1814.  They married in Stockport in 1837.  Sons Thomas,  born in 1838 and Luke in 1842, both in Dukinfield.  They were christened in St. Michael's Church, Ashton Under Lyne.

The family came to America in 1843 and settled in Buffalo New York.

I have sent away for a copy of the marriage record of Wm and Sarah in hopes that it will list the parents names.

Any information appreciated.

Hello there,

Yes, I am trying to find Richard Mulliner who was born abt. 1836/7 at Wybunbury or Audlem.  I have found his family on the 1851 Census living at Woore, in Shropshire. His father William Mulliner was stated to have been born in Wybunbury, Cheshire (Aged 46 yrs)
his wife Mary & the older children  were stated to have been born in Audlem Cheshire, and the younger ones in Mucklestone, Shropshire. Richard is not on the Census with them.   At the age of 14 he could have been
working elsewhere. When Richard married 24.12.1861
at the Parish Church Wybunbury he was living at
Bridgemere, and his bride Esther Jackson was living at
Doddington. I believe Woore is only about a mile away from Bridgemere, but its moving from one County to another County.
I would appreciate any help you could give.
Regards,
June
