Hi I am from New Zealand and am researching my grandmothers family in Royton. Her name , Mary Fitton, born 6 October 1878. Her parents were Edmund Fitton and Mary Ann (Butterworth). She married Harvey Porter of Chippenham, Wiltshire, 28 July 1900. they had a son (Allen), my father, born 5 June 1908. Harvey came to NZ in 1911 and Mary and Allen  came in 1913.

Hi Garstonite,
 Many thanks.
 I will look up that site for Royton.
 Yes Fitton is like Smith around there.
  I have my grandmothers confirmation certificate. which gives that she was baptised at the Parish Church Royton in 1879.
 Confirmed. April 17th 1895 at same church. By the Lord Bishop of Manchester.
  Her first communion was 28th April 1895.
 on Edmund's gravestone it says, " In loving memory of Edmund Fitton of Queen street" Died Jan 9th 1918 in his 68th year. I have a photo of the headstone, but not of where it is. Probably in Royton grave yard.

Hello -

Sophia Robishaw, the sister of my great-great-grandmother, was born in Royton on 16th October, 1823 and baptised at St Paul's, Royton on 29th February, 1824. In 1845, she married Edward Butterworth and her daughter, Eliza Butterworth, born 1853, married Edmund Gartside in 1874.

I have not long been looking into this branch of the family, but if you think that I may be able to help you further, let me know.

craggagh.
