Elizabeth, Ann and Thomas Botham

Having another try for the baptisms of the three children born to John Botham and Margaret Gleave.

According to the Censuses they were all born Stockport, Cheshire. They are all very consistent with year of birth as well. Elizabeth was born 1833, Ann 1834 and Thomas 1836.

I have all details on them, Elizabeth married Thomas Owens in Liverpool, Ann also lived and worked as a servant in Liverpool and Thomas died in Liverpool aged 18. The family moved to Liverpool from Stockport around 1841.

However I cannot find baptisms for any of them. The family had some nonconformist links - John was baptised at Hill Street Tabernacle in Stockport even though his sisters were all baptised C of E and Margaret's father Henry was baptised at Dean Row Unitarian Church although Margaret was baptised C of E.

The name Botham is sometimes written as Bottom or Bottoms.

If anyone can find anything I'd be grateful.
