Hi, if you check the igi you will see the following children born to Samuel and Ann Alker.

Mary 1828
Thomas 1824
Ann 1826
Jane 1818
Ellen 1821

The marriage of Samuel and Ann is stated as taking place in 1814 at Bolton le Moors but it is a submitted entry not an extracted one.  There may be a couple of other children before Jane in 1818 I guess.

The name Alker is very common in the Wigan area so it's quite tricky.  R.

Wests of West Wycombe.
Druces of High Wycombe
Cork(e)s of Kent
Goodwins of Kent
Taylors of Liverpool and Dysart
Truemans of Liverpool
Lavells of Ireland and Liverpool
McGowans of Scotland and Liverpool

Hi Dotty,
I really couldn't say if Samuels father had been married twice,but I see what you mean.

There is not a big distance between Bolton & Wigan,so it may be possible to find another marriage within those areas.

Regards

There is a marriage 1761 at Wigan [IGI] if that is correct their birth years are somewhat out.

Hi Dotty,

You are right the ages of James Alker & Ellen Arrowsmith are a bit out if the 1761
marriage is correct.
Goodness knows where we go from here.
Thank you anyway for your time & trouble.

Have you had the wills looked at.It looks like James and Ellen may have lived in Ince in Makerfield ,there are wills showing for James in 1803 and Ellen 1811.There is another James in1774[Could be the generation earlier]I am hoping to go to the LRO on Tuesday if you want me to take a look.
