Sandra Barlow 6 Feb 2007

Searching for my husband's family of Barlows, centred around Hyde in Cheshire:- John Barlow (1924)& brother Dennis- sons of James Barlow,born c1891,and Elizabeth Emma Barton. James was the son of William Barlow, born c1855, and wife Alice Ann ***, also c 1855- brothers John (1880), Edmund (1885), sister Clara (1882). William was the son of Clara Barlow, born c 1820 from Denton Lancashire- I cannot find reference to her husband's name as she was married and widdowed between censuses, but she had two daughters, Hannah and Sophia. All my Barlows lived, worked and died in and closely around Hyde- they all had links to the cotton industry, weavers, spinners, mill workers. My main concern is to find the name of Clara's husband- he should be on the 1841 & 1851 censuses, but I can't find him- anyone out there hiding him?????

I am researching William Barlow c148-1568. He was an Augustinian Canon and prior of Bromehill, which is part of the village where I live. I am using him as a subject for a degree and would welcome any information you can give. In particular his early days, bit of a mystery.

Barlow: William Barlow born about 1786 - but where? Probably London, England. Married Rebecca ?? about 1800-1810, probably in London. Rebecca came from Ely, Cambridgeshire (per 1851 Census, Stepney). William had the insensitivity to die two weeks before the census. I am a direct descendant, now living in Sussex.

She was very young when they married and died in her 40s.

yours sincerely Sandra

Cecile Araneta Cacho 07 Oct 2002

I would love to one day soon add my Barlow Family webpage on your site. but, I need information on my gggrandfather, John Barlow, born on 06 March 1842 in Demerara, British Guyana to English parents: John Barlow and Leonor Jones.

Where do I go to find additional information?
Were his parents missionaries perhaps?
Is there a site that lists names of passengers from England to British Guyana?


Joy Hildebrand May 2002

I am studying the character Billy Barlow as played by many performers in the 19th century. Can anyone tell me anything about Robert Barlow c.1820-1907. He was American born but came to Australia c.1840. He performed as Billy Barlow and used that name in private life too. He lived in Central Victoria, Australia and toured in USA, England and China. He died in Gympie Queens- land. Here in Australia, in the mid 1850's it was claimed that "The Blue-tailed Fly" was "his song". The smallest piece of infor- mation would be most welcome.

Julia Margaret Barlow PlFatb at aol.com Sep 2001

I am trying to trace any ancestors or known connections to my grandparents. Both in the USA and UK. They had numerous children; at least seven sons, all who served in the 1rst and 2nd World Wars.

George Barlow was a Lieutenant Quartermaster in the army, then a Sergeant Major in the R.M. Corps. His wife was Anne Elizabeth Henbest. They lived in the Hightown area of Ringwood in Hampshire England. I can find no trace of him or the sons in local records.

The sons were: Captains Charlie, Richard "Dick", Frank, and Stuart, Dudley, Philip, and my father, George. There was also
a daughter named Cassandra "Cassy". All are now deceased.

I would be greatful for even a small amount of information about my Barlow's!!

Bridget M. Flaxman Bates February 2001

I am, Bridget M. Flaxman Bates, born in Norwich, Norfolk England. I have one brother, living, information private. My father was Markus / Marcus Charles Oliver Flaxman, date of birth unknown, and, died as a result of a car wreck in 1962 / 63. My mother, Joyce Clesie Lilian Barlow was born in Kings Lynn Norfolk, England, date unknown, and died March 12, 1989 in Norwich, Norfolk England as a result of a long illness. Both parents were cremated in Norwich, Norfolk, England.

I believe my mother had a sister, Gail Barlow, who was married to a chemist, and they lived in Holt, Norfolk England. I do not know my grandparents names.

I have memories of Mother saying when she was single she went to dances in a sidecar attached to a motorcycle and the driver
was usually her friend by name of Everlyn. This was disapproved by the adults and so they did not tell their parents how they got
to the dance.

A few weeks ago I received an e-mail from someone in another village telling me that my parents name is still well thought of; especially mother. The reason being, that she had a dress store and sold clothing of just about any kind. She was remembered because she had a knack for telling 'husbands' what their wives wanted for birthdays, etc, as well as the size. She also made custom tailored suits. I remember seeing her guess, then measure a leg, and then laugh because she was always correct.

Dad was known to stop for a drink daily at a pub that was between the three businesses my parents owned. They also owned several apartments / flats and a house that was rented out to GI's, thus I have spent my life growing up around Americans before moving to the US in 1961.

My home burned several years ago, along with all photograph's and all family history was lost at that time. I would love to hear
from others who might be of this family line, and will be happy to share my memories.

John Jenkins <jj01 at gre.ac.uk> London England June 23, 2000

My ancestor Jeremiah Etchells married an Alice Barlow on 01 January 1813 in the Cathedral, Manchester, Lancashire.

Was she the Alice Barlow whose baptism is recorded on 25 January 1791 at All Saints, Newton Heath, Lancashire, father James BARLOW and mother Mary?

The husband of the daughter of Jeremiah and Alice died on 30 March 1858 in Edge Lane, Droylsden, Manchester. The person who informed the registrar, and claimed to have been present at the death, was one Sarah Barlow. Was she a relative of Alice?

Keith Nelson May 2000

A 2 x great-grandmother of mine, Betty Barlow born 1821 in Outwood, Parish of Prestwich, Lancashire married Richard Nelson born 1818 in Kearsley, near Bolton, Lancashire in 1844.

Betty was the daughter of Titus and Catharine "Kitty" Barlow and died in Kearsley in 1887. She had an illegitimate child, Titus born 1842, before she married my 2x great-grandfather.

Titus married a widow, Mary Marsh, and had 5 known children,

Thomas - b.1877, Titus - b. 1880, Miriam - b. 1883, Betsy - b. 1885 and Frederick - b. 1888

Titus - b. 1880, died in 1946 and had 2 known children: Alfred, 1911-1938 and Ada.

Hope that this may interact with someone's tree.

John Adrian "Ady" Barlow April 2000

My lineage as far as I know it is:
Myself: John Adrian "Ady" Barlow, private
Father: William "Bill" John George Barlow, born 28 July 1916, died 07 May 1981
Mother: Elizabeth "Betty" Olwen Barlow, born 10 November 1919, died 13 January 1983
Grandfather: W. G. -William George- Barlow, died 23 December 1951 - aged 76 years ---from gravestone-- DOB c1875
Grandmother: Esther Mary Barlow Nee Bradley, died 04 June 1953 - aged 76 years --from same gravestone-- DOB c1877

However, there is some confusion in the above information as my mother and father's marriage certificate states that my Grand- father's name was William John Barlow, deceased, but the information above comes from a headstone on a grave that my father used to visit when I was a child.

Unfortunately the Church at Llanrwst where I found the above information was pulled down about thirty years ago so I don't think I could find any local records, even though I suppose they must still exist somewhere.

The only other clue I have is that I think I was once told that the next generation back might be from the Cheshire area, possibly Bunbury or Tarporley.

Note from Susan:
Ady is new to genealogy--
Can any of you help Ady to learn how to find more about his family in England. I explained to him about census records, and suggested a Local History Center, but I am not even sure if they have those in England. I'm not to
well versed in English genealogy research, so I'm hoping some of you can encourage him to move forward. He
said that he had begun once, but the discrepancies in this grandfathers name discouraged him to go on, and now
he has once again been "bitten by the genealogy bug". I for one love to see the younger generation get involved.

John W. Barlow <JWB8134 at aol.com> Tennessee, USA September 1999

My great grandfather was William Barlow, born abt 1828 in Malpas Parish, Chesire. He was a farmer who married Sarah Bennett, daughter of Joseph Bennett. Sarah was born in Tushingham, Cheshire, and Joseph was born in Broxton, Cheshire.

Joseph married Ann Edwards and had a farm in Tushingham where they resided during the censuses of 1841, 1851, and 1861.

William Barlow was a farmer who moved to Shropshire shortly after his marriage in 1863. William's father was John Barlow, a farmer. I can not locate the household of John Barlow in any Cheshire census. Therefore, I do not know John Barlow's wife or any other of their children. There was a farmer, John Barlow, from Edge who married an Ann Lee in Malpas in 1923, but I can not
find a census record to prove that this John and Ann had a son named William who was born in 1828. (There was a William Barlow christened June 4, 1928 in the Cathedral of Manchester, Lancashire, who had a father named John and a mother named Mary).

I have names of other Barlows in the Malpas Parish area that I have collected in order to find my John Barlow living with his son, William.

See more about this family: William Barlow and Sarah Bennett

Frank BARLOW August 1999 -----Family from Liverpool and Chester-----

I have found two publications of interest, both by:

David T. Hawkings, "Bound for Australia" and "Criminal Ancestors".

I note for instance that Thomas BARLOW, aged 19, was sentenced to 7 Years at Huntingdon for stealing a silk handkerchief. He was transported to Van Diemans Land on the Coromandel on 15-June-1838. He was single, could neither read nor write and was
a hawker and fiddler by trade.

I have a number of unexplored collateral branches in my family tree - not necessarily all criminal!!

I wonder if it would be possible for the BARLOW genealogist in the colonies and former colonies to post details their family's first arrival in their new country. Perhaps a coordinated effort could establish a few lost links!

Paul in Chelmsford UK August 1999

My great grandfather was Barlow Alexander MULHOLLAND, born Roscommon c1840. His father was George. The history of Barlow in London England from 1867 onwards is known.

There is also a Samuel WIlliam Barlow MULHOLLAND in Salford Lancashire, 1880 when his son married Matilda McTaggart. In 1889 they named their son Alexander Barlow MULHOLLAND. I've not been able to link these two families. Could this information help somebody link up with their and my family trees?

Mike Griffiths August 1999

I have a Mary Barlow died 1729 from --I think-- Denton, Lincolnshire. Her father was Robert Barlow. She married John Holland -born circa 1650, d 1717. She had a son, John Holland, born c1690 at Denton. This is all I have on the Barlows. Robert Barlow is my gr x 7 grandfather.

Denton is a village in south Lincolnshire on the border with Leicestershire and the nearest town -a few miles away- is Grantham.
I'd be grateful for any information on this branch of the Barlows.

Kari from Massachusetts, USA July 1999

Direct lineage from George Barlow to Kari Burke Gaudette
---includes both side of the family- Barlow & Jones---

My dilema is as follows:

Ret. Rev. William Barlow, I thought born 1584 Barlow, Chorlton Cum Hardy, Lancashire ; died September 19, 1656 Douai, England and that he was the Bishop of Bath & Wells, which I found him listed as in the Catholic Encyclopedia. That would make him William Reudesin Barlow, son of Sir Alexander Barlow and Mary Brereton.

On a list of Bishop's I find that he was a Bishop of St. David's in 1596? ---

but I have been notified that it maybe he was a Bishop of Rochester and then the Bishop of Lincoln. According to Ian Ormerod -UK- he says that he entered the Cambridge University in 1580, which would have made him born around 1560.

Do you know anything about this man and which information is correct?

I am trying to find out if he is the father of George Barlow born c1620, England and died October 31, 1684 in Sandwich, Massa- chusetts. His 1st wife was Mary Vincent Stetson (they had 4-5 children: Aaron, Moses, Samuel & William and maybe a George 2nd wife married about March 4, 1661/62 in Sandwich, Massachusetts, Jane Beme Besse (Widow of Anthony Besse) born 1622 Massachusetts, died ? August 6, 1693? Sandwich, Massachusetts ---they had 2 children; John & Nathan.

I know the rest of the line, and know a lot about George once he was here in the US, but I would like to know about him in Eng-
land, like where he came from, a solid (almost) birthdate and what William was his father and his mom's name....do you think you can help me?

Anything you can do is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance to anyone who can untangle this mess for me!

Marilyn Bennett Echols July 1999

I'm seeking information (and the name of his wife) about GEORGE BARLOW.
I do not have a birth date on him but he was born in LONDON, MIDDLESEX, ENGLAND and he was 62 in the 1881 census where he is found a widower living at 25 Wilson St., PENDLETON, LANCASHIRE, ENGLAND with his daughter MATILDA, her husband WILLILAM SMITH and their three sons:


GEORGE BARLOW (the one I'm seeking) had the following children:


ELIZABETH ANN (my grandmother) was born November 06, 1846 or 47 in ST.GEORGE IN THE EAST, LONDON, MIDDLESEX. Her sister MATILDA was around 3 years younger than ELIZABETH.

Hoping someone can help me in finding information on GEORGE & his wife.

Selina Calastus Phillis Hannah William

I have some information on this family from 1811 to present but nothing prior to 1811. Does anyone know anything of this branch?

Connie Dawes July 1999

From the Genealogy -
'John Williams and Thankful Barlow - Benajah Tomson & Prudence Eldredge', compiled in 1931 by Charles Tomlin and Clarence R. Brooks, page 13:

No birth or death dates for John Williams but for Thankful Barlow it has born 1738, no place, married 1755 in Holland, died 1818 New Jersey.

It goes on to say:
"Emigrated from Wilhelm, Holland. John emigrated after marrying. He settled at Beaufort Harbor, South Carolina. His wife followed
in 1756. Their son, Barlow, was born at sea, May 12, 1756. This family moved to Cape May, and the to "Maurice River Neck",
now Heislerville, New Jersey."

I have always doubted that John Williams and Thankful Barlow were Dutch, possibly English who went to Holland to escape reli- gious persecution.

I wonder if any of our English members have ever encountered these names.

(son of Job & Helen 'Main' METCALF)

ABIGAIL BARLOW born abt 1600 Leydon, S. Holland, Netherlands
father: Thomas BARLOW
married: John DUNHAM born in England - died: probably Plymouth, Massachusetts

JOANNA BARLOW born abt 1374 whereabout unknown
married: Nicholas EYRE

Information only - Submitters e-mail is invalid

James Barlow's first wife was Lady Newton who died after having a son and a daughter. His second wife was Lady Newton's cousin, also called Lady Newton. She passed away after having four sons. James then married again but the name of the wife has not been found.

James Barlow who lived in England, presumably in Darlington, and believed to be born around 1781. James left Darlington, England and arrived Baltimore in September 1831 at the age of 50. His third wife (name unknown) and two children, William J. and Elizabeth Ann. (aka Ann Woodland) arrived some time later. James had two more children while in Baltimore. They were Amos and Isabell and she was called Belle. The family moved to Barnesville, Ohio five or six years later. Amos subsequently married Martha Hunt of Baltimore and they raised their family in Barnesville. He and Martha had ten children. Three did not survive. The seven remaining were James N., William (Will) H., Emily (Emma), Martha, Inez, Florence and Alice.
Most of the above information was obtained at the Public Library in Barnesville. Information concerning James and his three wives was in a separate file under the name of Barlow but there was no information concerning who had compiled that data.

Barrie Morton

My ggg great-grandmother was Margaret "Peggy" Barlow born 30 November 1818 in Ainsworth Lancashire, married to James Seddon Hulme born 1819 in Little Lever, Bolton, Lancashire. Margaret's father was Henry Barlow, I believe born 22 May 1793 in Bury, Lancashire, married to Alice (her last name might be Frith). This is where I have come to a dead end. Any information
would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Graham Barlow

In the 1851 census, 46 Cottage Lane, Birmingham
Joseph Barlow, 48, head, coachpainter, born in Lichfield, Staffordshire
Elizabeth, 48, wife, born Birmingham
Thomas 14, William 6, George 3, Eliza 8 and two lodgers, Charles Leaver (Barlow), 82, and Ann Nott

Also Court 1, House 4, Granville St., St. Thomas, Birmingham
John Barlow, 40, head, coach painter, born Lichfield, Staffordshire
Mary, 40, wife, born Smethwick, Staffordshire
Ellen 20, Clara 18, Walter 17, Peter 15, Lels 13, Mary Ann 7, Caleb 4, Laban 2

There is a possibility that these two, Joseph and John are brothers of my grx2 grandfather Thomas (blacksmith and coachbuilder) and his brother George (coachpainter and coachbuilder) and they also were born in Lichfield. If any one has a connection with the above families I would appreciate any information regarding the families.

Also from Graham

Barlows in High St.
Would appreciate any help with information re- George Charles Barlow, christened 26/12/1847 at St. Martins, King Edward Rd, Birmingham. Burials show St. Saviours, Saltley, Birmingham, 21/6/1909, George Charles Barlow, 174 St Saviours Rd., age 67.
One of his brothers mentions in his diary that he was apprenticed to an engraver in Wolverhampton c.1858 ? The info I am looking for, was he married, did have any children and what was his trade, did he carry on with his apprenticed trade - Engraver.

and another from Graham

Anyone out there that could do a check of 1861 and 1871 census for me, to confirm that, George Barlow and family moved to
and established a coachbuilding business in High St, West Bromwich, in the mid to late 1850's. He would have been there in 1861 but died in 1869, I am trying to identify family members who may have been still at this address in 1871. George's first wife died c.1848, he remarried possibly to Mary Jane Williams c1849, she also had children from a previous marriage so the surnames
that may appear at this address 1871 could be Barlow and or Williams.

Bernard Brown

My Barlows are centred around the Birmingham area in England. My great Grandfather was Edward Barlow (c1819-1872),
his wife was Mary Ann Wilcox (c1823-1906)

Their children were:

Ann c1843
Charles Edwin c1845, married Emma Harris in Bishop Ryder, Birmingham 1881.
Rose Ann c1848, married John Ottley 1868 in St. Mary, Handsworth, Staffordshire
George David 1850, married Matilda Dunn 1876 in St George, Hockley, Birmingham
Emma c1856, married Elias Lowe 1872 in Bishop Ryder, Birminghams
Alice 1860-1862
Rebecca 1863-1940 (my grandmother) married George Jacobs 1888 in St.Mary, Birmingham
Florance c1867, married Henry Pickering, 1889 in St. Mary.
Sarah Ann c1869.
All these events occured in Birmingham. I have not yet found the marriage of Edward Barlow and Mary Ann Wilcox but I do have a large collection of Barlow data for the Birmingham area.

Diana CRYSTAL Perth, Western Australia

My several greatgrandfather Robert BYFIELD married Susannah BARLOW at St Leonards, Shoreditch, LONDON, ENGLAND on
06 February 1815. A child, also Robert BYFIELD, was transported to Australia as a convict in 1834. Susannah BARLOW was baptised on 19 April 1772, also at St. Leonards, Shoreditch and her parents were James and Susannah BARLOW of Hackney.
Are there any other Barlows that come from this area?

Annette Ledger

I was born a Barlow too, and have been researching the Barlow line for some years. From the earliest I have got to the present
day follows:

SAMUEL BARLOW born c1773, a silk throwster of Congleton, Cheshire, England married 1805 to Hannah Goostrey of Congleton, born 1787.
Children were:

Daniel, 1807, SAMUEL 1810, Sarah 1813, John 1815, Susannah 1818,
Mary 1820, Martha 1823, Betsey 1825, Hannah 1829

SAMUEL 1810, moved to Warwickshire, England and married Harriett Powell in Warwick in 1833. They lived in Leamington and Samuel was a tin plate worker.
Children who survived beyond infancy were:

Samuel 1835, John 1838, James 1839, Hannah Maria 1841, George 1843,
THOMAS 1845, Sarah Ann 1847 and Ellen 1854

THOMAS a groom then a horse cab driver married Catherine Davey, nee Stevens in Leamington, on 6th April 1874.
Their children were:

Keziah 1875, Harry Thomas 1876 and ALFRED born 1878

ALFRED trained as a ladies hairdresser and worked at Harrods Store in London. Whilst in London he met his wife Elizabeth Anne Buggy, the daughter of a horse bus driver. They married in 1905 and had one son, my father, RONALD ALFRED who was born in Kilburn London in 1908. In 1911 the family moved out of London first to a "Pub" in Stratford upon Avon, Warwickshire called The Thatch (It's still there but is now a restaurant). They soon moved on to Wellington in Shropshire where Alfred set up in busi- ness as a hairdresser in the main street. Ronald followed his father into the hairdressing trade but also trained as a chiropodist.
In 1935 he married Margaret Tudor of Wellington. They had two children, Annette (myself) and Gilbert. I married Thomas Ledger and have no family but the Barlow name lives on!
Gilbert married Coral Haley of Halesowen, Worcestershire. They have 3 sons, Andrew, Simon and Nicholas. Andrew married Julie Lacy and has Thomas and Lucy . Simon and Nicholas are as yet unmarried.
I have further details re various members of the family back to around 1800 but the information here is my direct line. I would love to find out more about the original Samuel and also contact anyone who feels they might be related at any stage since then!

James D. Barlow

As far as I have succeeded in tracing my Barlows, there does not seem to have been anyone who has ventured to emigrate to the USA. My father died whilst I was young, so the vague stories I recall were of a brother who went to Australia, and a sister to South Africa (or was it the other way round?).
James Barlow lived and worked as a silk weaver in Congleton, Cheshire. He married Martha Chesters at the Astbury Parish Church on May 6th 1821. Of their 8 known children only 3 survived. Those who died young - Jane, Mary Ann, William Simister, Mary, and Elizabeth. Martha survived, as did another Mary and my grandfather Robert Barlow.

Some time between 1841and 1851James became the Innkeeper, victualler, at the Horseshoe Inn, Newbold Astbury, and died there in June 1855. His son-in-law John Thompson, Martha's husband, was then licensee for a time, and later, my grandfather Robert became licensee. This must have been a tenancy only, as the property, and small farm attached were part of the Grey-Egerton Estate at that time.

As for Mary, she was a pupil teacher, married a teacher, and moved to the Wirral Peninsula, Cheshire and were Master and Mistress of a school there.

Robert married Mary Ann Garbutt at Astbury on July 21st, 1862. There were 10 children Thomas, Robert, Mary (died age 29), Alfred, Martha, Elizabeth, Emily, Charles, Margaret, and John Eaton my father, who married a Yorkshire lass Edith Sunderland, at Rothwell, Leeds on Sept. 17th 1924.

I would appreciate any help in getting back further than James, my great grandfather, who claimed to have been born at Congleton but no baptism has come to light there, or at Astbury.

Has anyone heard of this, which is said to be the motto of an ancient Barlow family - "En Foi Prest" Motto translation "Ready in Faith". This was copied exactly as I read it.

Geoff Barlow England

I'm Geoff Barlow, son of Kenneth Barlow, grandson of Joseph Barlow, great grandson of Joseph Barlow, born Stalybridge, Cheshire about 1859 and great-great grandson of Robert Barlow, a turner of Stalybridge, Cheshire, England. If anyone can help with more information about this family I would be very grateful.
I don't usually get the chance to check every day, so please be patient if I don't get back straight away. Alternative email address.

Michael A. Lonsdale CLACTON-ON-SEA, Essex, UK

I'm relatively new at this game and have hit a few brick walls. So is there somebody out there who can help me out. In the few short weeks that I have been searching I have amassed a fair amount of information on the Lonsdale family, unfortunately itís the wrong family line. It consists of 20 or so family trees going back to Miles Lonsdale of Padiham in 1500.
The names that I am looking for are: -
Helen Elizabeth Wilson circa 1867 Scotland, Manchester, East Anglia
Robert Lonsdale circa 1810 Blackburn
Alice Barlow circa 1811 Blackburn
Turner's in Southport before 1895
Sumner's in Southport before 1895
Ellen Whittington Bolton 1870

Helen Elizabeth Wilson born?
Died Woking, Surrey 1955
Married Thomas Barlow Lonsdale February 19th 1899 Holy Trinity Church, Hendon
Had 2 children Thomas Alfred Lonsdale born March 29th 1900 and Edith?
Helens age at marriage was 27 but I can find no trace of her birth in the 1881census.
It also showed that her father John Wilson, fisherman, was deceased. This is thought to be a Scottish and East Anglian connec- tion as she used to take my father to Peebles and Yarmouth and Kessingland. I donít know if she had any brother's or sister's as she was very secretive about her past. Nobody knows what day or month she was born let alone the year. I have traced a Helen Elizabeth Wilson born in Springburn, Glasgow in 1867 to 155 Lloyd St, Chorlton-upon-Medlock, Manchester, in 1881. The head of the house is John Wilson, 28 [accountant's clerk] brother, also there: - Isabella M. Wilson, 19 [scholar] sister and what looks like George and Charles 14 & 12, both brothers. This leads me to think that both parents are dead. What happened to them? Is this the Helen Elizabeth Wilson that I am looking for?
Did she move to East Anglia if so when and where too?
Did others in her family also move there, hence the visits with my father?
Did one of them return to Scotland and settle in the Peebles area, if so who and where?
Robert Lonsdale born circa 1810
Married Alice Barlow Feb 19th 1832 at St Mary's, Blackburn.
Had 3 children Henry Barlow Lonsdale, 1833, Robert, 1834 and John William, 1837.
1841 census Alice and children living with her mother at Calendar St, Blackburn. She is already a widow.
Does anybody have any information about Robert, birth & death, who was his parent's etc?
Henry Barlow Lonsdale married Helen Elizabeth Wilson but what happened to the other 2 children, Robert and John William.
Alice Barlow, born circa 1811 Blackburn, mother's name Ellen? born circa 1776
Does anybody know what her father's name was and where he came from?
I've subscribe to the Lonsdale list but there doesn't seem to be many people interested in the Lonsdale name as there seems to be no response from it. You can also get back to me direct on familytree at lonsdale.globalnet.co.uk If you think that I may be able to help you get back to me. A big thank you in anticipation.

also from Michael:

My 4x Gr-Grandfather, Robert Lonsdale in his will mentioned his cousin Robert Warrener.
His will reads:
To my dear wife Alice, and my cousin Robert Warrener.
Dispense real and personal estate by public auction. If this auction took place where would I find details of it?

Alice was formerly a Barlow, her mother was Ellen; she was 65 at the 1841 census and 79 in 1851 census?
Does anybody have any details of Robert Warrener or his family in Blackburn around 1836.
Still looking for Helen Elizabeth Wilson who married Robert Lonsdale's Grandson in 1899.
Thanks to everybody out there who have been such a great help.

Phil Bartlow

I am wondering if my surname BARTLOW may be a variation of Barlow? Understand it may have come from UK also. Would love to know of any connection.. Thanx


My Grandmother was born in Little Lever Bolton Lancashire in 1895; her name was Hannah Barlow. At the time of her birth, her Mother wasn't married and there is no Father on her birth certificate: I am searching for Hannahs Mother Emma Barlow who at the time was a Stitcher in a Bleached Cotton Works.
It is believed that about 1900 Emma married but to whom I am not sure, although one of my Uncles feels the name was Crowshaw or something similar. On Hannahs marriage certificate: it states her Father as being Corby Taylor I have searched the IGI but there isn't a marriage for Barlow and Taylor.

The family of a John Barlow who was born around 1792 in Hyde (?) England. He left for America in March 1849 with his son William, James, James' wife, Elizabeth, and their son, Ellis. They sailed into the port at New Orleans and eventually settled in Cross Plains, Wisconsin.

I am a descendant of a long line of Barlows reaching all the way back to the Royal Families in Europe (we all are) which is traced clear back to the time of Christ. If I can be of any assistance in finding names, please let me know.

They had 7 children.

Married George Henry Church. 1896..Auckland...George was my grgrandfather.
On some papers the name is spelled Somers; others Summers.

Lillian C. Cognetta

All I have is the marriage of my great-grandparents:
Joseph Bridge & Esther Barlow, 02 March 1834, St. Mary's, Bury, Lancashire.
Esther died in 1853. Her death certificate (information provided either by a brother-in-law or father-in-law: where her husband was
at the time is not known) says she was 35. Her burial information says 45. They lived in the Greengate, Salford, area most of the time. They show up on the 1841 census (where ages are rounded to the nearest 5) and that makes the 35 age look more plausible.
They were apparently part of the 'missing section' of the 1851. I tried via the IGI to find parents for Esther - I have 15 possible combinations from the IGI alone. Her children (and there may have been one previous to the first that I have, as there is a 2 year
and 2 month gap between the marriage and the first known child), in order, were named: Joseph, Mary Ann, John and Ellen.

IF these were their only children, and IF they were following traditional naming patterns, then I suspect I am looking for a John and Ellen Barlow as her parents. I have only looked up to 1816, however. I need to find possibles for an 1818 birth.

John William Barlow was b. 26 February 1895 in the UK. He died at Sheffield WRY in 1945. His father was also a John William, who died at Sheffield WRY around 1946, he was a coal miner, had lived in Sheffield from at least the very early part of this century and I believe his wife was Irish and she died around 1933.
