1700's Cheshire Quakers
« on: Thursday 21 January 21 17:20 GMT (UK) »
While researching my tree I discovered one of my ancestors was formerly a Quaker prior to her baptism into the Church of England on November 16, 1760 in Northenden, Cheshire. Her husband was John Wood. Their daughter, Mary, was baptized 4 days later.

There are only a few marriage records for a John Wood and a Mary in the Manchester/Stockport area within a 20 year period that would fit the bill. I'm wondering if I can possibly narrow down who this Mary was and find a surname for her in local Quaker records. Can anyone point me in the right direction as to where I should look?
