There are two Thomas Thornleys coming up living in Bolton. Neither were born 1876 and neither have a wife called Alice or the right occupation. One is a Cotton Spinner, wife Mary and the other is a retired Watchman, wife Catherine. I can't find an Alice Thornley either.

Thanks Emeltee.

I can't see deaths that fit in Preston or Bolton RD so I'm stuck.

I've just noticed the typos. Bloton.

Brother John (Ironmonger) died in 1938 in Bolton and I found his probate record.

Thomas sen and Jane Brockbank had 9 children and 4 ended up in Australia. I'll try to see if that should be 5.

No death for Thomas jun in NSW.

2, 4, 7 & 8th ended up in NSW.
