Edward Turner of Moreton & Michael Shufflebotham
« on: Sunday 24 May 20 12:44 BST (UK) »
Hi,

I am trying to find the father of Michael Shufflebotham born in abt. 1804  to Mary Shufflebotham of Astbury, Cheshire.
the Register says he was the illegitimate son of Mary Shufflebotham B: 1788.
Another researcher has found evidence to suggest that Edward Turner of Moreton was the father.
Is there anyway to verify this?
Alson I have John Shufflebotham B: abt.1847 the illegitimate son Of Mary Shufflebotham B: abt. 1827 father unknown.
Would you be able to shed any light of either of these would be much appreciated.

Regards Julie

If fathers are unknown - unless any bastardy bonds exist against them - you have no proof

What evidence has the other researcher found and how reliable is it?

Hi CaroleW,
I have information collected from Congleton St Peter's Parish registers. I have tried in other instances for other lines to find these bastardy bonds records but can never find them.
I would appreciate if you could share a link to them I am obviously not putting in the correct words for google to search.
Cheers
Julie

Not all bastardy bonds records are available or online.  Would be interesting to hear how the other researcher has established that Edward Turner was his father

Have a look at this post from 2016

doesn't give the date of birth - but does give the date of Baptism

do you know that Astbury to Moreton is 60 miles ??  and Mary would have been 16 - or 15 if she was born 1788 after August - do you know the age of Edward Turner of Moreton in 1804 ??

Did you find Michael's baptism in the St Mary Astbury Registers or those of St Peter Congleton? And where was John baptized? There is a district called Moreton immediately south of Astbury.
