Here is the family in 1861/2870/113/10

William Holt 43 yrs
Mary Holt   40 yrs
Lawrence Holt 18 yrs
Emanuel Holt 17 yrs
Joseph Holt 17 yrs
James Holt 16 yrs
William Holt 14 yrs
Elizabeth Holt 12 yrs
Abraham Holt 11 yrs
Jane Ann Holt 9 yrs
Ephriam Holt 7 yrs

Most of these from Abraham back have mmn Bottomley. I canít see Joseph and James and wonder if they are Maryís children if she is the Taylor mother and not the Bottomley mother.

Well off Ashton Road Failsworth ,North Manchester ,there is Holt Lane .
At the end is a farm , Holt Farm or Holt Lane farm.
A fairly new housing estate has Holt in  the  names of roads and Mews.
Just wondered if any helpful connection there .

I wonder if there is an relevance here?

1851 https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:SGTS-ZD3

William states he is born in Shaw in 1871. This family in 1851, living in Crompton, adjacent to Shaw, have a grandson Lawrence 9 yrs and one just a baby.  :-\

There is a bit of a puzzle - if that is the family in Crompton

Baptisms

Parents Lawrence, labourer of Shaw and Nancy

William Holt baptised 6th August 1815 St Lukeís Heywood
Parents Lawrence engineer of Heywood and Nancy.

Other children are baptised Heywood with abode Crompton.

Henry baptised 1829 (non conformist) shows mother as Nancy Green.

I thought from my findings that his first wife was Bottomley.
Marriage William Holt of Castleton, engineer and Susan Bottomley (you thought Susan from your research) Rochdale 1836
