Hi,
In your one name study have come across a William Rossiter born abt 1855/6 Manchester ?.  I can only find him in the 1861 & 1871 census, where he is living with his parents William & Catherine in Manchester.  Although in 1893 he is recorded on a baptism at St Patrick R C as a godparent. His father William died in 1880.
Regards
KR

Hi KR,
Happy New Year!!

I do have William Rossiter born circa 1855/56 son of William Rossiter and Catherine in my database but unfortunately I have made little progress with the family at present. William's parents were born in Ireland as were some of his siblings but they have been hard to track. Sometimes William is given as William Rossiter and other times as William Rositer.

There are many variations on the name Rossiter which complicates research somewhat particularly as tracking Rossiters in Ireland is not helped by limited records.

If I get any more information I will post it here for you. Sorry I cannot be of more help at this time.

Best wishes, rcuser

Many thanks for your reply and Happy New Year to you too.

If it helps with your study the children listed on the 1861 census  James, Bridget and Patrick are wrongly listed as (Rossiters) they are in fact children from Catherine's first marriage to James Kennedy.

I am a descendant of Bridget (Kennedy), but I haven't been able to find anything more about her brothers James and Patrick.

William Rossiter married Catherine Kennedy a widow in Liverpool in 1853.
William's parents were Robert & Mary.

I did obtain a copy birth certificate for a William Rossiter born 1857 Manchester but it wasn't the right one as it gave the fathers name as James.

Regards
KR
