Jonn transcribed at Jona Heigh and Mary Ann do as Mary Anna so children become Sarah Anna, Bradley Anna, Saml. Anna.

Don't yet have anything on Jonathan after 1841.

This does not help

The Huddersfield Chronicle and West Yorkshire Advertiser (West Yorkshire, England), Saturday, May 22, 1858; pg. 8; Issue 427. 19th Century British Library Newspapers: Part II.
On the 17th February, at the Congregational Chapel, Melbourne, Australia, by the Rev. W. B. Landells, Mr. Samuel Haigh, late of this town, to Sarah Jane, eldest Daughter of Mr. James Hirst, of Halifax.
Just found this

W C = Woollen Cloth ??

Would fit if that family was in same line as Hirst and Kilner families.
W C not on the list of known abbreviations for 1841.

Samuel became a draper as did Bradley.

1856 VIC Electoral Roll - Melbourne - St. Paul's
HAIGH Samuel, South Yarra, draper - house 58 Collins street
HAIGH Bradley, South Yarra, draper - house 58 Collins street

Deaths Dec 1846
Haigh Jonathan Huddersfield 22 222
Deaths Sep 1851
HAIGH Jonathan Huddersfield 22 267

HC Huddersfield Chronicle
1855. HC 17 Feb: Samuel Wood Haigh, Colne Bridge, cotton spinner and Jonathan Haigh, executors of late Thomas Haigh, shareholders in West Riding Union Banking Co.

That's a different Samuel as the one in my tree arrived in Australia in 1853. Mother-in-law is Lucy Wood so that's a coincidence.

Can't find anything that helps.

If he died between 1841 and 1851 I don't think you have a chance of finding his death as, apart from the three Jonathans mentioned in an earlier post there are at least 64 John Haighs died in Huddersfield!

I have looked for the family in other Censuses but no joy, well not in Huddersfield anyway.

Thanks Emeltee.

Yes. I'm finding nothing more that helps.

This one not in my tree.

Samuel Wood Haigh
Christening Date 23 May 1810
Christening Place Huddersfield, Yorkshire
Father's Name Thomas Haigh

Thanks Peter.

I think it might be employing ... Assistants and ... Apprentices but the numbers don't seem to tally with the number of assistants and apprentices in the census.

Possibly hosiery = gloves so Glover ?
