Hello,  I am back doing the Dawson family history.  I found the copy of the london Gazette details of Thomas Dawson's bankrupcy etc.  I don't know if I'm looking correctly but the 1841 /1851/1861  give a Thomas dawson of Stockport/Macclesfield as a Silk Dyer then in 1865 he is known as a farmer and potted meat make.  I am therefore unsure if one and the same persons.  During 1861 and 1873 he is in a relationship with Elizabeth edge and they have 5 children with middle name Edge so assume unmarried.
In 1879 he is living with Ellen Furley and has 3 children between 1879 and 1873 marrying Ellen in 1882 naming himself as a widower on marriage certificate although I can find no previous marriage. Also naming his father as John Dawson although I had researched and found a Thomas Dawson marrying a Margaret Alman in 1821 in Prestbury, Cheshire.
I am still looking for any links between the supposed parents and Thomas the son who has an approximate dob as 1825-1831. I appear to be going round in circles as I have Thomas 's will where he names the children so that ties in but his past life and parentage is proving difficult and I would appreciate any further help I can get please.
In 1891 he dies leaving a will to yet another woman!
