Frank Newton 1875/6 Dukinfield Cheshire

Location
mossley near manchester
From
England
Hi , I have a Frank Newton born 1875/6 in Dukinfield Cheshire . He marries a Mary Ellenor Ellis Taylor in 1900 at St Marks church in Dukinfield Cheshire . Frank states on his marriage cert that his father is William Newton , he also puts his address as Wood Street Dukinfield Cheshire . I can trace Frank in 1900 and 1901/1911 and I have Mary a widow in 1939 living on Bridge Street Stalybridge Cheshire. My problem is that I cannot find Frank anywhere with a William ( his father) in the 1881 /1891 census . Anyone help please.
 
If this is his birth then I can't find the marriage of a William to a Radcliffe.

Lot's of possible marriages around 1900 for the above Frank.

The above could all be wrong.

Bit of a puzzle Keith.

Expect birth to be in this RD if Dunkinfield is correct in later census.

You would think so but we all know how wrong census's can be. Stockport is about 9 miles from Dunkinfield.
 
Yes, some or all could be wrong in census. Also some details could be wrong in the marriage record.
 
Hi Thanks so much for looking for me , it really is a puzzle I'm beginning to think Frank just made William up . I shall have a look at these but failing that I shall try and send for Franks birth cert see if that sheds any light on his father, I keep coming back to him as I can't move back any further . Frank would of been my Great Grandfather his children where
Frank Newton 1900/1900
John Holmes newton 1902/1903 named after Mary's Father John Holmes Taylor
Frank I Newton 1911/1988
Albert 1913
James H 1917/1972
Fred cheshire bmd show birth 1918 to 1920
Stanley Herbert newton 1922
Holmes Taylor Newton 1925

Checked with my mother and she confirms that these are her Father Stanleys brothers , she remembers Mary and her father Stanley telling her life was hard as his father had died whilst he was still young .
 
Which one do you think is the correct birth?

This one then.

So far I can't find this one in 1881 census. Now looks to be 4x Frank born about the same time in the area.

Deaths Mar 1877
Newton Frank 0 Stockport 8a 65

Deaths Sep 1879
Newton Frank 3 Stockport 8a 53

Maybe the Ogden one , I shall check what yourself and solid rock have supplied carefully , would help if I could find this William on his other children's marriage certs , I'm not sure if I should send for one of their marriage Certs or take a punt on ordering lots of Frank Newton birth Certs....
 
I'd not order all the Frank Newton birth certs.

Some puzzles take longer to solve and some can't be. This needs more time.
