Hello,

Re the family in post #2, can the occupations for William and his sons be read off the image?

Thanks.

Thanks Geoff.

Baptism: 21 Dec 1817 St Luke, Lowton, Lancashire, England
Simeon Ball - [Child] of William Ball & Margaret
Born: 29 Nov
Abode: Golborn
Occupation: Miner
Baptised by: Jno. Pennington, Curate
Register: Baptisms 1813 - 1834, Page 45, Entry 354
Source: Original Parish Register

Marriage: 26 Jan 1817 St Mary the Virgin, Leigh, Lancashire, England
William Ball - Weaver, Leigh Parish
Margaret Branwood - (X), Spinster, Leigh Parish
Witness: James Lees; Timothy Taylor
Married by Banns by: Danl. Birkett Vicar
Register: Marriages 1813 - 1820, Page 167, Entry 501

It would seem that is not the right marriage.

The family in post #2 seems not to be the one with children of a William & Margaret - Simeon, Hiram, Israel, ...

William the miner and his son Hiram also a coal miner lived in Edge Green Golborne. In later census they are farmers.

It would seem from the census that the BALL family in my tree were in Edge Green Golbourne all the time.

All born in the county
William Ball 55 Collier
Margaret Ball 50
John Ball 25 Collier
Hiram Ball 20 Collier
Maria Ball 15
Israel Ball 15 Collier
Amelia Ball 12
James Ball 15

1851
HO107 2204/72/14
Edge Green, Golbourne
William Ball 64 Farmer of 9 acres
Margaret Ball 61 farmer's wife
Hiram Ball 28 farmer's son
Isreal Ball 24 farmer's son
Amelia Ball 22 farmer's daughter
James Ball 20 farmer's son
Joseph Dickson 17 servant ?? in the coal pit

1861

Edge Green, Golbourne
Hiram Ball Head 36 Farmer of 28 acres

Simeon is the one in my tree so I have his baptism in 1817.

The question becomes: is his mother Margaret BRANWOOD?

William is a weaver. That's why I doubt it's the right marriage to be Simeon, Hiram, Israel's parents. The right marriage probably for the family in post #2.

No, you have not misunderstood. :)

I didn't make myself clear. I'm asking the impossible question.

Is it the same William and he changed occupations or is it a differnt William because of the different occupations?

Baptisms of children with father William a weaver? - No

Wiliam a weaver in 1841 - No

Another marriage for a William & Margaret ?

Marriage: 28 Dec 1806 All Saints, Wigan, Lancashire, England
William Ball - (X), this town [Wigan]
Margaret Redhead - (X), this town [Wigan]
Witness: Wm. Bancks; James Davis
Married by Banns by: John Gibson
Register: Marriages 1803 - 1812, Page 155, Entry 770

William has been a collier/miner since the birth of Simeon, he was a weaver at the time of the marriage to Margaret Branwood in Dec 1817. I suspect you are correct in noticing he changed his occupation between his marriage and his 1st born...

I'm confused. I know Golbourne was in Winwick Parish in 1841 and that it was not in the same parish 1851.

Is that family at Edge Green Golbourne?
