William Bickerton, mentioned as brother in law on 1851 census appears on IGI;
Baptism, William Bickerton 12 Dec 1824 Oswestry Shropshire, Parents John Bickerton and Sarah. There doesn't appear to be a reference to Ann.
Regards randh.

I want to thank the people who have helped me out with information on the GALT/BICKERTON request I made - it has been great.

Finding b-in-law William Bickerton's birth in Oswestry gives another clue.  I couldn't find that on the IGI - it doesn't seem to agree with me. 
His sister Ann Galt nee Bickerton seems to be 14 years older and she gives Ellesmere as place of birth - about 1811.

Is this a BIG FAMILY  to look for?

Did she marry in Ellesmere about 1823ish - or had the family moved to Oswestry and she married there?  It seems reasonable.

It always amazes me how much and how far people moved around in those times.

Oswestry and Ellesmere are in the county of Shropshire a few miles from each other.

There is a marriage on IGI (extract from parish register).

James Galt to Ann Bickerton on 05 Sept 1836 at St Peter, Church Street, Liverpool.

This may be of interest.
