Hi,

Could someone please look up James Derbyshire wife Mary on the 1871
census birth 8134 or round abouts on the 1881 census it says that they lived in wigan lancashire - trying to find if they had any other children. I know that he had an elder son called Andrew as he is married and on the 1881 census.

Many thanks Cazzand

Julie,

Could you do me another favour and look up the 1861 census for Andrew Derbyshire he would have been 1-2 and I think born in Wigan I know his father was James Derbyshire and Mother Mary Bolton ot this is what I have been lead to believe. All the family seem to have been in the cotton Industry into the 1900's Can you tell me did the cotton firms keep records and can you see them anywhere. Sorry to trouble you so much but I am new to this and still feeling my way around.

Regards Cazzand
