Just found this out off another board

''The Collegiate Church of St Mary &c was the 'parish church' of Manchester from c 1215 to 1847, when the Diocese of Manchester was created (out of the Diocese of Chester), and the Collegiate Church became Manchester Cathedral''

 Hi Cissy,  Very many thanks for all your research.  Being in NZ it is sometimes hard to access all the stuff available, especially from home.
I have come to the conclusion that you're correct with almost all of the records you unearthed.  In the interim I have scouted around and found another birth for Joseph and Hannah - James 1812 (possibly died as a babe).  Also found wot I think is their marriage in Prestwich (28 Oct 1807) - Hannah's maiden name being Wilde - think daughter of Joseph and Mary Wilde (nee peacock) and Hannah born at Royton and christened on 20.8.1786 at Oldham.

Still having no luck in finding wot happened to their son Bernard (born 1813).  Know he was alive and in England for 1841 census - a visitor at James and Esthers home that night, together with his sisters Levinah and Alice. 

Found wot I suspect is death of Joseph Wilde Radcliffe (born 1837 to James & Esther) - 1839 in Cholton.

Also think that several of Joseph & Hannah's children died young -
James born 1812, Matilde, Emma 1816, for instance.  Yet to do any research on Major born 1820.

Again many thanks for your great help

Firstly here is the 1841 Census for the Family.
1841 Census
Drake St, Castleton,
Rochdale, Lancs
HO107/550/15/Rochdale
Joseph RADCLIFFE, 55, Ind
Hannah, 50
Ellen, 30
Matilda, 35
Major, 20
Levina, 15
Clement, 15
Emma, 5
All born in County
+ in same Household are;
William WOOD, 30, Cordwainer, N
Harriett, 30, N
William, 11mths, N

1861 Census
45 Hyde St, Ardwick, Lancs
RG9/2869/72/37
Hannah RADCLIFFE, 74, Head, Widow, born Royton, Lancs
Levina, 37, Daug, Unm, born Royton
Alice, 33, Daug, Unm, born Rochdale
Emma A, 28, Daug, Unm, born Rochdale
Christina, 7, Grand/Daug, born Hollinwood

1891 Census
Garburgh House,
Manley Road,
Withington, Lancashire
RG12/3163/42/25

Thomas DYSON, 56, Head, Mar, Smallware Merchant, born Huddersfield, Yorks
EMMA ANN Dyson, 58, Wife, Mar, born Rochdale, Lancs
Amy Dyson, 23, Daug, Unm, born Manchester, Lancs
Leonard Dyson, 20, Son, Unm, Clerk in Shipping House, born Manchester, Lancs
Clara Dyson, 18, Daug, Unm, born Manchester, Lancs
LEVINA RADCLIFFE, 68, Sister in Law, Unm,  born High Compton, Lancs
Hannah DAVIES, 21, Servant, general Servant, born Montgomeryshire, Wales

So Levina seems to have never Married and Emma Ann is Mrs Dyson;
Married March 1877, Oldham, 8d 731 (FreeBMD)
So looks like Thomas may have been a Widower by Childrens ages.

1851 Census EMMA is visiting Brother MAJOR, Wife Mary A born Sheffield, Yorks, in Broughton, Lancs. His Mother in Law is Elizabeth PARTON.
They have 1 Child, Rosa E age 1.
Cant find a Marriage though.

The Barnes are a separate Household.
They are in Yorkshire.

CHRISTINA Ratcliffe, 16, (described as Sister!), Scholar, born Lancs, Oldham
