John Waddington -1809 or 1810

Hi everyone,

Can any of you help me with this? John Waddington, born in Padiham circa 1810 is my great great grandfather. I have no record of his siblings. My problem is that there were two Johns born in Padiham at about the same time, - one on 2 Apr 1810 to parents George Waddington and Jenny Thompson, and the other on 17 Jul 1809 to Nicholas Waddington and Ellen Webster. I cannot go further back up my tree until I can establish which John is the right one. The only definite indicator I have is that the right one was married to Mary Smith (1810), was a Coal Mine Manager, who died in 1883, and had children Nicholas (1828), Ellen (1829), Henry (1835), Margaret (1837), Mary (1840), Smith (1842), Grace (1845), John (1848) and Richard (1851) who was my great grandfather.

Any clues gratefully accepted.

Peter Waddington
