Susanna/Susan HASSALL
« on: Wednesday 23 October 19 21:14 BST (UK) »
Evening everyone,
I'm seeking help about the above ancestor of mine. I believe she Susanna Hassall was born c.1780 although I don't know where (possibly Cheshire/Staffs.).
What I do know is that she was settled in Stalybridge, Cheshire by 1805 where she gave birth illegitimately to my paternal 3x great-grandfather John Hassall, along with 4 other illegitimate children up to 1815.
Susanna then goes on to marry a Wilkinson where they appear together on the 1841 census in Stalybridge. Susanna Wilkinson (nee Hassall) dies in 1845 at the age of 65.
What I really need is any information pre-1805 about Susanna and her family.
Yours excitedly & exoectantly,
Jason.

I see that Susanna married a Joseph Wilkinson on 10 October 1831 at Ashton Under Lyne.

The 1841 census suggests that Joseph is 10 years younger than Susanna.  All the family were not born in the county of Lancashire.

There is a baptism for a Susanna Hassall on 15 November 1778 at Wolverhampton, parents Joseph and Sarah.

This may be your Susanna.

Wow! Really? Thank you. I have never been able to find a baptism record for any Susanna Hassall. I've been thinking of possible links to the Leek area, which I guess is not too far from Wolverhampton.
Thank you. I hope people will keep digging or pointing me in the right direction.
So grateful, thank you.

I found that baptism on this website - https://www.freereg.org.uk/

It doesn't cover everywhere yet but it is a useful website to check for baptisms, marriages and burials.

Thank you *bevj*
I've been scouring wills to try and discover a link between this Hassall branch and my own in Stalybridge, Cheshire.
