John Widdowson Bolton
« on: Thursday 10 June 21 14:58 BST (UK) »
John Widdowson Bolton born3.12.1903 Manchester, Ashton Under Lyne.
Died upminster, Essex 1972. Second marriage 1968. His parents James HenryBolton. 1872 Manchester, wife Hannah Widdowson  Born 1864.
Looking to find details of a first marriage,no name not sure of area, could be Manchester area as a marriage at a young age  say from 1923 to 1936 at very latest. My feeling is earlier rather than later. Any suggestions or advice would be welcomed. Thank you

Thank you Rosie. The Margaret is his second wife to be. Apparently did not divorce first wife, maybe waited until after her death before finally marrying, perhaps on religious grounds? The marriage you suggest is a possibility will take a closer look. Problem is he worked for Fords  and moved around before settling in Essex. I am Looking at this for my friend whose late Father this is.Just trying to find last piece in the Family puzzle.

Many thanks for your kind help.

Is John W described as a widower on his marriage in 1968?
Looking at the possible birth of the child, Margaret wasn’t married previously.
There are no children from the earlier marriage (as far as you know)?

You have included Manchester in John W’s birth place - it is  Ashton under Lyne (not Manchester ) :)
James Henry remarried in Stockport but there doesn’t seem to be a marriage in that area for John.

Frances F Haylings (garstonite’s post) is elusive :-\
