Halliwell/Helliwell
« on: Friday 22 August 14 12:25 BST (UK) »
Hi, I'm searching for any information about the Halliwell/Helliwell family who originated in and around Heptonstall in Yorkshire and migrated to Manchester in Lancashire.  Some of them seem to have stopped in Scarborough for a short time as well, I'm guessing that they were looking for work which was becoming short in the Hebdon region.  Almost all the family members appear to be weavers with a few exceptions and of course several conflicts necessitating the men to join the armed services. 

I have got as far as William Halliwell c 1776 (Wadsworth Yorkshire) who may have married Grace Greenwood, I have no source to back this up, just the general belief of other family researchers.
It could be that this couple birthed Roger Halliwell in 1788 (Heptonstall, Yorkshire) and he may have then married Hannah Greenwood.
The only fact I am sure of is that Roger Greenwood was the father of Greenwood Halliwell who was born in Heptonstall in 1824 who subsequently married  Mary Griffiths in Manchester.

If anyone has any further information I'd be very appreciative.

Hello Heatherjulie,
That is the marriage I have between Greenwood & Mary in 1844.  They would be my great-great grandparents.

I am unsure as to who my 1824 Greenwood's parents were.

Hi
There is a tree that I have seen - beware of trees you haven't checked out!

It says that Roger Halliwell was born in 1790 in Hebden Bridge and married Hannah Greenwood in 1822 Hebden Bridge. It has a son Greenwood born 1824 Hebden Bridge and death in Manchester in 1893.
