Odd though that there is no death record for William H Sharratt.
Have looked at shipping records,sometimes the men folk would emigrate to say the US or Canada then wives and children go out later.There just might be the possibility that he did go some where and then died abroad,leaving Elizabeth free to marry again.He was an engine winder 1891,would he have gone out to India or South Africa,with the railways,dozens did.
Have you considered also that a guy named Moore was Elizabeths father.

Hi Doddie

Absolutely fascinating story - I do hope you get to the bottom of it.

There's a birth in Prescot in 1870 for Elizabeth Moore Wilson Mar qtr vol  8b page 678.

I'm struggling to find her in the 1871 census though - the best match is an Elizabeth M Wilson with parents Robert and Mary J both born Lancashire. Robert is a railway porter though not a bricklayer - ref RG10 piece 3834 Folio 47 pg 43.

best wishes

Hi Maria, that census entry is a correct one. Robert, Elizabeth's father (sometimes also known as James Robert Wilson/Robert James Wilson) did have a seven or eight year spell working on the railway between his usual occupation as a bricklayer. He was at various times a railway porter and a railway guard. Elizabeth's mother was born Mary Jane Dickinson. Robert and Mary Jane were married in the Edgehill area of Liverpool in 1866.

Thanks Doddie - glad I'm not toally barking up the wrong tree - still don't see where Moore comes in though - I was thinking MMN but that doesn't work either.

Best wishes

Have decided to pick up this frustrating thread again. No real progress with William Sherratt since my last post. Have decided to see if anyone out there possibly - and it's a big 'possibly', I know - has a William Sherratt in their tree who had possibly married for a second time (whether legally or otherwise). For now I am limiting the time frame to what I know about his 'first' wife Elizabeth. She was still married in 1911 (acording to the census of that year) but was a widow when she married again in 1918. William would have been between 48-50 years old in 1911 and 55-57 in 1918. If William had married again before this period things are even more complex. Some additional information that might  help: William's father was Jabez Sherratt and his mother was Margaret Collier. Apologies for perhaps muddying the waters even further, but I am determined to get to the bottom of all this.

Regards

Doddie

Doddie this is probably mad but there's a passenger list entry for a William Sheratt leaving London on 6th June 1911 on the Highland Laddie bound for Buenos Aires  ???

The image shows this passenger travelling First Class,single male,British but no occupation shown.

Can you list the family with all details in 1901 please Doddie,also do you have Williams birth registration record.

Hello again Brionne, in 1901 William and Elizabeth were living at 1 Parkside Cottage in Newton-in-Makerfield, Lancashire. Staying with them is Elizabeth's younger sister Cecelia Annie Wilson aged 21. William is described as being a "saw mill engine driver". He had previously worked at Bedford Colliery in Leigh as an engineman. I haven't got William's birth certificate with me just now but he was born in Hindley, Lancashire in 1862.

Regards

Doddie
