Expert help required for burial
« on: Monday 30 August 10 17:13 BST (UK) »
Can anyone say which churchyard or burial place would be used for someone in Witton cum Twambrooks.

I am looking for John Bebbington who must have died between 1830 (his last childs birth) and 1841 (wife found a widow with 3 children in Witton Street )

He and his wife Mary Findlow were married at Astbury St Mary and the first child was born there, but the second/third children, boys, are baptised at Great Budworth Wesleyan Methodist???

I came across this record on Familysearch

Death
John Bebbington
26 May 1836
Witton Cum Twambrooks
Batch 107188-8
source film 2103771
item 4

Where will I look for further info and or a grave
ARNOLD, PARTINGTON, FOSTER in StHelens
BEBBINGTON, FINDLOW in Northwich
BURROWS,Billinge,Northwich
DUMBILL/DUMBELL, Gt Sankey, St Helens
EDMUNDSON in Northumberland, Warrington, St Helens, Manchester
HENDERSON, Northumberland,St Helens
LIPTROTT, Billinge
BURROWS, Billinge, Northwich

Hi,

You could try "Google" for Witton cum Twambrooks and this will give you its location in current day Northwich, or look at "AllAboutCheshire.org" which names St Mary's & All Saints Church, Gt Budworth (C of E) as the ancient parish church or Witton, St Helen (C of E) as an ancient chapelry in Gt Budworth. There are also non conformist churches and chapels listed under Northwich.

Hope this helps

Alan

Thanks for that I did look on Genuki but only found the 'St Helen' in the right date range and the records are at Cheshire Record Office which I cant get to easily. Why is Cheshire so hard  ::) Ill look into the others.

Hi MUMMYG

Death
John Bebbington
26 May 1836
Witton Cum Twambrooks
Batch 107188-8
source film 2103771
item 4

Looked at this for you, the register entry has his age at death as 70 years - would this eliminate this particular John Bebbington?

odessa.

Yes that would eliminate him working on his birth date range 1795-1805 as he was married in 1825, that would make him too old.

Many thanks for looking anyway, Ive also managed to chalk off two burials in Astbury where he lived at marriage although there are many more with the same  name to go in this area, every bit helps. :) 

Thanks to Stanmapstone for that image, it certainly puts that church in the frame as the widow lived in Witton Street in 1841.

hi ,
you may already have found what you need but witton cum twambrooks was the old name used for northwich and its surrounding villages. you need to look at witton st helens church wich is the main church for northwich town,[my old church ] most people in the witton area used this for burials, including my family's ancestor's who are all buried there . hope this helps. :)

I have quite a few ancestors who were baptised and buried at Witton cum Twambrooks.  For one of them, I have the actual burial place and it is St Helen's Church, Witton.

Hope this helps.

Stan - the map you posted has helped me to locate the church.  Thanks from me too.
