    Question wood families of macclesfield and district

    As part of my study of my Wood family line I am interested in three brother Richard, Charles and Samuel Wood, silk manufacturers in Macclesfield late eighteenth and early ninteenth centuries. Particularly interested in why a daughter of Charles- Lydia was born in Russia in 1848. Although i have a list of baptisms for his other children cannot find them on census before 1861. Charles may have died c 1854 and both he and Samuel were mayors. Samuel dead by 1823 and no dates for Richard-possibly brothers were born in manchester. Is anyone out there researching this line or silk industry. Margaret

    Just found this post after a search, as I have just discovered a John Wood, born in Macclesfield, who married Dinah Jackson in Feb 1846 in Manchester Cathedral.
    I do not know who his parents were.
    He died between 1861 and 1866. Any connection?

    Spent my first 12 years in Woodhouse Park!!!!!!! but thankfully moved to Bath in 1967. Did end up back in Manchester to study, before leaving again.
    Got quite a shock when I drove through there a couple of years ago. I recall there being a farm at the bottom of the road in my early years.

    Keeping on topic, and coming full circle.... I remember visiting Shrigley Hall, near Macclesfield, with my family in the 1960s. It was a school/college run by the Salesians, (now a hotel).
    It is in my half-brother's paternal line that I have just discovered the Wood ancestors from this area.

    Was there any other info on the Wood/Jackson marriage?????
