1841 + 51 Crowther North Bierley
« on: Saturday 07 May 05 20:11 BST (UK) »
Hi,
I'm hoping someone can find this family for me on the 1851 and 1841 census. This is what i know so far...

In 1851 the CROWTHER's were living at a place called Upper George, North Bierley, Bradford. I found this info on a census strays website, but the details weren't complete. This is what i got from it -
Richard Crowther age 54
Hannah Crowther age 50
John Crowther age 24
Sarah Crowther age 21
Rose A Crowther age 13
Richard Crowther age 11
Henry Crowther age 5

can anyone find this family on the 1851 and fill in gaps like place of birth and occupations please?
I'd also be grateful if someone could find them on the 1841, i guess at the same address (they were still living there in 1861). I'm keen to know if they had any children between Sarah and Rose as there is quite a big age gap between those two!
Thank you,
Jacdee

Hi Jacdee,

I found the following on the I.G.I:


Richard Crowther (bapt: 5 Aug 1796, Bradford son of Richard Crowther & Ann Skelton who were married 28 Aug 1783, Bradford) married Hannah Holroyd 5 Feb 1821, Bradford.

They had:

Joseph Crowther bapt: 9 Sep 1821, Bradford.

Benjamin Crowther bapt: 16 Mar 1823, Bradford. (Must have died before other Benjamin was born)

William Crowther bapt: 3 Apr 1825, Bradford.

John Crowther bapt: 24 Dec 1826, Bradford.

Mary Crowther born: 5 Nov 1832 bapt: 3 Mar 1837, Wibsey, Bradford (Same time as Hannah)

Benjamin Crowther bapt: 23 Apr 1834, Bradford.

Sarah & Ellen Crowther bapt: 8 Jun 1835, Bradford. (Sarah would be 6 when baptized, Ellen must have been a baby)

Hannah Crowther born: 9 Nov 1836 bapt: 3 Mar 1837, Wibsey, Bradford buried: 3 Jan 1838

Bear in mind the I.G.I only contains records up to 1837 in most cases, therefore later children won't be on it.

The 1851 census shows:

Upper George, (Wibsey) Bradford

Richard Crowther-Head-Mar-54-Carter-Wibsey

Hannah Crowther-Wife-Mar-50-    -    -Wibsey

John Crowther-Son-Mar-24-Worsted Warp Twister-Wibsey

Sarah Crowther-Daur-Unm-21-Power Loom Weaver Worsted-Wibsey

Rose A Crowther-Daur-13-Spinner Worsted-Wibsey

Richard Crowther-Son-11-     "            "      -Wibsey

Henry Crowther-Son-5-Scholar-Wibsey

3 doors away (still Upper George) is the aforementioned son:

William Crowther-Head-Mar-26-Power Loom Weaver Worsted-Wibsey

Mary Crowther-Wife-Mar-24-      "          "         "           "     -Wibsey

Lavinia Crowther-Daur-3-     -     -Wibsey


Hope This Helps,

Regards.

You star!!  ;D
Thank you so much, you have just added another generation to my tree by giving me Richard's parents! And his extra children are something else to look up on later censuses!
Thank you, thank you!!

Hi there,

I know its a while since your first post, but I have just joined this list and saw your post when I searched on "Wibsey". I believe I may have a link to your Crowther family in the form of Sarah Crowther, born 12th March 1830, daughter of Richard. She married Ezra Ormondroyd in 1853 and they produced numerous offspring.

Please let me know if you need any further information

Hi!
My main link is through Richards son Henry. But i've been having a lot of bother with him, and trying to find who his parents were. I'm now not that certain that i've found the right family! But i do have info on some of Richards other children if you need it. I don't suppose you'd have any info on Henry Crowther would you? Thats probably not the family name you're looking at! Theres not many people that are doing Crowthers!!
If you can help, or want any of the info i have then let me know,

I'm afraid I don't have anything further that would really assist your quest. I have the 1851 Census entry as posted early, when Sarah Crowther was living with Richard & Hannah at Upper George. Sarah married in 1853, details of her marriage:

St. Peter's, Bradford
10 Jul 1853
Ezra ORMONDROYD, 29, Wid, Miner, Wibsey, John Ormondroyd, Labourer
Sarah CROWTHER, 23, Spin, Weaver, Wibsey, Richard Crowther, Carter

In 1861 the couple are still at Upper George with a couple of young offspring.

The only other info I have is that also in 1861 at Upper George is Richard, Hannah & Henry Crowther. Both Richard and Henry were cart drivers.
