I've just remembered that I did find some Bratton Jones on the Lancs On Line Parish Clerk

http://www.lan-opc.org.uk/Search/indexp.html

If you put Bratton in the forename box and Jones in the surname it turns up 5 references


Thanks - the other Bratton Jones you found relate to the side I am researching.

I noticed that on the 1832 marriage for Mary Bratton Jones to Joseph Hattersley
one of the witnesses was named Josh Smethurst.
He may have married a Phillis BRATTON on 29 May 1833 at St Mary Manchester
see LOPC. May be no connection but thought I'd post just in case.....interesting there is also this baptism

17 May 1833 at Collegiate Manchester for a
Phillis Bratton daughter of John Bratton, occ Tailor & Jane, abode Long Millgate,
Notes born 15 Feb 1812  Colebrookdale in Shropshire

Phillis Smethurst was buried on 19 Jan 1850 at Manchester Cheetham Hill Wesleyan Cemetery , grave no 1731
Owner of the grave Alexander Sinclair

John Bratton Jones & Sarah’s child John died 1839

JONES, JOHN  BRATTON   Age 6
1839  D Quarter in MANCHESTER  Volume 20  Page 486   

John Bratton Jones is buried Manchester Cheetham Hill Wesleyan Cemetery
Grave no 3013 died of Typhus Fever
Owner of grave John Jones

Thank you so much Ladyhawk.   I saw the marriage on Anc but the notes re the birth place are only on LPC Online

Thank you also for the burials - I don't suppose JB Jones is buried at  Manchester Cheetham Hill Wesleyan Cemetery between 1847-51??   Are the records available online?

Great finds Ladyhawk.
If I recall, Mary (Bratton Jones) Hattersley had a daughter Phillis.

Also, Phillis who was baptised 1833 was living In Long Millgate.
1841 J B Jones who is mentioned from the outset was living in Redfern  Street which is very close to Long Millgate.

All little bits which might help.

He was the only John Bratton Jones found on F M P Manchester Cemetery Records. There are quite a few named John Jones and some buried at Manchester Ardwick Cemetery. 

Can you remind me of his year of birth that would help to narrow down all the JJ's

Thanks - He is listed as about 60 in 1841 - but looking at deaths on the GRO Index he may well have been younger - as it's on F M P will also have a look

Hello,

I don't know. Joseph Hattersley was my 3x great grandfather. I have his marriage to Mary Bratton Jones and their line forward but nothing more on them.

The point at which I am at is that Sarah could be Joseph's sister

That John Bratton Jones and Mary Bratton Jones could be brother and sister.

If that is so and the second John Bratton Jones marriage is the same person as the first one (which looks likely as the second one is of a widower) then Mary's father would be Robert Jones, farmer.

Although Hattersley is not a particularly common name it is quite big in Manchester!

Brie

Sorry Brie I missed your post - I am still confused about the Bratton Jones generations but with JB Jones listed as born about 1781 in 1841 - 30 years older than your Mary - I am coming round to him being the father your Mary Bratton Jones born 1810 Colebrookdale, Phillis Bratton born 1812 Colebrookdale (Ladyhawk found) and Joseph B Jones born about 1820 Manchester with the siblings grandfather being Robert Jones - farmer   :-\
