Platt family - Wigan area
« on: Monday 17 December 18 15:06 GMT (UK) »
Would be interested in any information anyone has on Thomas Platt (born -1862) and Jane Houghton (born 1857).
I'm struggling with sorting out any children as it seems there is overlap with other children from prehaps the wider family or i'm just getting confused looking at this?

So far looks like a set of twins - unclear if these made it to adulthood? Born in 1891
William (1895) who seemed to marry a marcroft.
Then George (1873)? unclear about the acuracy of this - possibly married Holt?
Rachel no info??
Ralph no info??
James no info ??

Thanks for any assistance offered - l would be super grateful.

Welcome from me too  :)

Family Search (you have to register but it is free) shows two children in 1901

Thomas 10yrs (so before the marriage)
William 5 yrs

There is a Thomas Houghton b Wigan 1890 with no motherís maiden name  GRO index and Lancashire BMD shows motherís name as Houghton.

Where did you get all the above names from?  George b 1873 cannot be the child of Thomas so who is he?

Twins born in 1891 cannot be connected to Thomas if he only married in 1895
