Hi

Where is Windmill Square in relation to Windmill Street

Apart form the Jacksons, I have Mary Ann Lomas daughter of John and Hannah Lomas but have not traced back further than that.

There seems to be more connections with Lomas family, as James Jackson , my Edwards borther could have had a first marriage to Ellen Lomas.
Either way there seem to be often members of the Lomas family withmy Jacksons

I have the Macclesfield MI CD but apart from Edward's grave in the Cemetery it hasn't helped

Hi Chris,

I uploaded a short video of St Peter's Church in Macclesfield to Youtube a while ago, and wondered if it might be of interest?

Hi

We've just come across this string as we're preparing for a local history event 'word on the street' organised by St Peters Church Windmill street Macclesfield - 7th November 2009. We're getting together oral memories, pictures and memorabilia from the Windmill Street and Black Road area. You can read about it here:-

http://www.stpetersmacc.org/wordonthestreet.html

We've found some interesting stuff from local people already - for example another picture of the lamp-post in the middle of the street. If anyone reading this is able to contribute any memories or pictures please do!

Also - if you're in the area . . .. come along!

Best wishes

Terry,

Welcome to Rootschat. I would so have loved to come up to Macc for your exhibition,but sadly I can't. Hopefully you will be posting more about it after the event?

I am sending you a photo of my grandad Albert Worth in the St Peter's football team in 1912.

Regards

Carol

Hi Terry

Really would have loved to be there on Saturday, but it is a 300 miles each way from Hastings - so a bit out of the question I am afraid.

Have sent a couple of pictres of Windmill Suare to your wordonthestreet address

According to the Archives and the Census returns the family had a Cordwainer/Shoe makers shop in Windmill yard and Windmill Square between c1851 and 1891 plus we had the corner shop which was a grocer/provisions shop at 1/2 Windmill Square and at various other addresses in Windmill Square No 6/7 and in Mill Street we had a bakery/confectionary shop which i belive closed in about 1910 when the last remnants of the family moved to Chorlton cum Hardy.  Most of the Parish register entries seem to be in St Peter, but later it appears the family migrated to Christchurch

John and samuel meredith of Macclesfield
« Reply #25 on: Saturday 07 November 09 05:04 GMT (UK) »
I live in New Zealand and doing research on one of the lines of Merediths.  Ours had two brothers going to Samoa, we are looking for an Uncle of those boys called John who was married in West Derby, Lancashire and moved to live in West Macclesfield.  He had a son
Samuel and samuel had several children.  I think Samuel married a Nightingale and went to Passaic, Paterson where he had a mill and is listed as being a silk thrower.  One of his grandchildren from his son Albert has kept in touch with our family but lost connection with the macclesfield family.  I have found many on the Cheshirefreebmd of our family.  My son is in London at the monment and if there are any Merediths who belong to this clan.  Elizabeth is a sister of William, son of samuel, she never married, Frank and Fred were in the first world war and I found thier names on the honours boards and memorials in Macclesfield. in 1911 census the other children were
Harriet, Lillian, and Sarah Jane.  If anyone has any knowledge at all of these familys and any stories my son who can be contacted on email while he is in london and I know he is so keen to find out about all of our relations.  his email is (*) His real name is Stephen.   Thank you all.  I enjoyed the photos of macclesfield and reading about the life they lived.

A couple of years ago I ordered a birth certificate online for a John Meredith and his will, but it turns out it cant be ours because his sons are born after that date.  Another reason for our search is we have hit a wall as to the father and mother of John and Our Thomas who were born about 1803-1810 as few records cover these times.

Hi Bob

I think our ancestors must have known each other back in the 1800's

We had a Cordwainers/Shoe makers shop in Windmill yard and Windmill Square between c1851 and 1891 plus we had the corner shop which was a grocer/provisions shop at 1/2 Windmill Square and at various address in Windmill Square No 6/7 and Mill Street we had a bakery/confectionary shop which i belive closed in 1910 when they moved to Chorlton cum Hardy.

On one of the early census returns I also have a Black Street Address
