    Default Hugh Watkinson

    Dear everyone
    I am trying to confirm the correct parents. There are so many Watkinsons living in Croston Lancashire.

    I have Hugh Watkinson born 26 Mar 1840 Croston, died 1891 Salford Lancashire.
    married Elizabeth Hampson 25 Dec 1859 Lancashire Catherdal.

    Now I have parents Hugh Watkinson born 24 FEb 1810 Croston died Jan 1844 Preston. and Ann Watkinson nee Watkinson born 23 Aug 1816 Croston, died 1902 Chorley Lancashire.

    But Hughs baptismal records state mother Ann single.

    Now the Ann Watkinson nee Watkinson has parents James Watkinson 1779-1864 and Jane Lea 1788-1866.

    I have come across another Hugh Watkinson m. to an Ann Bond same period 1830

    My friend's mother is wanting an update, but I need to have the correct info before I can print and post to her.

    Hugh cont.
    I started with a confirmed info as:
    George Watkinson b1909 Salford Lancashire, d.1978 Salford. m. Eveline Roscoe b1904, ed1976 Salford.
    then backtracking; George's parents: Hugh Watkinson b1882-d.1925 Salford m. Mary Hannah Bromley 1903 Lancashire., then father of Hugh: Richard WAtkinson b1862-d.1940 m. 1882 Salford. Hannah Churm 1863-1902
    then Richard's parents : Hugh Watkinson and Elizabeth Hampson.

    Am I going in the right direction. as I need to confirm further on this Hugh's parentage.

    thanking you

    married Elizabeth Hampson 25 Dec 1859 Lancashire Catherdal.
    Hugh, aged 20, and Elizabeth married in MANCHESTER Cathedral - there is no such building as Lancashire Cathedral.
    Hugh's father said to be James Watkinson, a labourer.

    In the 1881 census, Hugh, aged 43, says born Salford.
    In 1871, Hugh, 32, born Croston.
    In 1861, Hugh Wadkinson (sic), 20, born Croston
    In 1851, Hugh, aged 11, born Croston.
    Living in Croston with grandparents James and Jane.
    James, 71, born Croston and Jane, 66, born Hesketh Bank.
    Census reference HO107/2263 folio 582 page 20

    In 1841, Hugh, aged 1, living in Croston, same address as in 1851. Census reference HO107/525/11 folio 12 page 17
    In household
    James, 60
    Jane, 55
    Richard, 30
    Ann, 25
    Betty, 15,
    James, 11,
    Jane, 4
    Hugh, 1

    Birth registration for Hugh in March quarter 1840 Chorley registration district has no mother's maiden name, which usually means an illegitimate birth.

    Now I have parents Hugh Watkinson born 24 FEb 1810 Croston died Jan 1844 Preston. and Ann Watkinson nee Watkinson born 23 Aug 1816 Croston, died 1902 Chorley Lancashire.

    But Hughs baptismal records state mother Ann single.

    Now the Ann Watkinson nee Watkinson has parents James Watkinson 1779-1864 and Jane Lea 1788-1866.

    I have come across another Hugh Watkinson m. to an Ann Bond same period 1830

    Think the ones in bold are wrong, but have not investigated further.

    There's a marriage for Ann Watkinson dau of James, a weaver, in Croston, Nov 5th 1850. Groom Thomas Forrest.

    As I see it Hugh born Croston 1840 is the son of Ann Watkinson a single lady and the grandson of James Watkinson and his wife Jane.
