thomas dawson ..astley lancs 1860s ..wifes elizaberth edge, ellen furely
« on: Tuesday 02 October 07 21:50 BST (UK) »
I would be really grateful if anyone could offer any help on the following:
My ggGrandfather Thomas Dawson b1824-1831 in Macclesfield married in 1882 (second marriage as down as widower) an Ellen Furley and had 2 children.  Prior to this he was with a Elizabeth Edge/Heywood with children between 1864 and 1873.
On his marriage certificate to Ellen he lists his father as John Dawson a Blacksmith.  Previously some research done for my American uncle identified his father as Thomas Dawson who married Margaret Alman by Banns 13.8.1821.
I am really at a standstill as to his birthdate, parents, where he was 1841-1861 census's being listed in Lancashire 1871-1891 when he died 20.6.1891.
Would welcome any help please.

Hi there, Yes its one and the same.  I thought he lived at Mopside, Astley?

I am looking for his birth date and for his parents and whether he was married to Elizabeth Edge as his second marriage stated widower. On all the childrens birth certificates, he is down as father.

Thanks for looking in, really appreciated
Jan

Thanks for my responses, they were really apreciated.  I understand Thomas Dawson to be the same person logged as birthplace Stockport and Macclesfield.  Cam up north, saw his grave but all buildings now flatted.  I am still trying to find his mother and father Thomas Dawson and Margaret Alman who married 13.8.1821 St Peters Church, Prestbury, Macclesfield.
