Having looked at the original it is very water damaged. However pob looks like Glossop to me.

Yes I agree with that- Derby Glossop.

There is a nonconformist baptism in Glossop 15 March 1821 for a Joseph, son of John, a Farmer, and Mary Brocklehurst. Abode Chinley.

There is also a death in 1878 in Ashton under Lyne so he should be in the 1861 and 1871 Censuses to confirm pob.

I can only find one Joseph Broclehurst born 1822 with father George and he was baptised in Stockport to George, a Weaver, and Anne. Abode Hillgate.

In the 1871 census Joseph gives pob as Stockport.

Hello & many thanks  again to you both .

I actually have a copy of his marriage certificate and therefore believe his fathers name is George. Charles Brocklehurst is also a witness to the marriage. I can find George and his sons Charles  & Joseph plus younger siblings in many census records  but the true pob of Joseph and pob of his parents remains a bit of a mystery to date.  Thanks for clarifying the " SCROSS " mystery. I'll have to spend a lot more time on mapping out the dates and their movements to get to the bottom of it , if I ever can.  Thanks for your time and efforts today .

It looks to me like Glossop as well.
However, there is a tree on another genealogy site which refers to the 1861 and 1871 censuses where he gives his place of birth as Stockport.

 Hi   All that have responded.

Ive just found a place called Shallcross, Derbyshire which is not too far from Stockport, Cheshire. I 'll spend sometime in the near future looking into that area for his father & mother, boundary changes etc.  I'm no expert but I'm beginning to question if parents had children baptised when they settled in the larger mill towns & not in their pob if  it's a hamlet or tiny village .  If only I had all day to spend on this.....
