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.

Hi Dotty,

I am sure that you are on the correct James & Ellen & I have just found the marriage of their son Samuel in Bolton & it says he was a Farmer from Ince.
I haven't considered the wills but as I live in Spain the LRO is now out of my travelling distance so it would be lovely if you would be able to look when/if you go to the LRO.

Cheers

James Alker will dated 21/10/1774 mentions
Wife Elizabeth
Children James Arthur Thomas Betty William and Jane,in it he states the last two were unmarried

James Alker of Ince will dated 28/1/1803 mentions
Wife Ellen
sons William Thomas Arthur Edward and Samuel
daughter Mary wife of John Lord innkeeper of Wigan
daughter Ellen
daughter Ann wife of William Dawber of Abram

Ellen's will I think was dated 1811 will confirm later
Mentios "her children" but her son John was named as execotor which I found strange because he hadn't been named in the fathers will unless I have overlooked it,

Are you still looking for the children of James ALKER and Ellen ARROWSMITH? I have this information.
They married 20 Aug 1761 and had at least ten children:
James (c 1762), Mary (c 1766), John (c 1770), William (c 1772), Arthur (c 1774), Ellen (c 1777), Ann (c 1779), Thomas (c 1781) Samuel (c 1783), Esther (c 1784).

father James ALKER (c 7 Oct 1744) is the son of Edward ALKER and Mary ATHERTON.

I am descended from Samuel ALKER (c 30 Mar 1783) and Ann HALLIWELL (b Abt 1793)

I think I got the wrong end of the stick on my last reply. I gave you the previous generation to the one you asked for.  Samuel ALKER (c 30 Mar 1783 and Ann HALLIWELL (b abt 1793) had eleven children.
They were James (1815), William (1816), Jane (1818), Ellen (1821), Thomas (1824), Ann (1826) Mary (1828), Ann (1831) Samuel (1833), Elizabeth (1835), and John (1838).

I am descended from James (1815) who farmed Sledbrook Farm and married Margaret KILSHAW (nee TABERNER), a widow who already had several children.
