John Cadwallader baptised 7 May 1848 Worthen, Shropshire parents Richard, a Miner, and Anne

Richard Cadwallader married Anne Perkin 14 December 1847 in Worthen

No birth ref found for John. The one with mmn Powell is not the correct John as parents are wrong.

Ada Jane Lightfoot born 5 August 1847 baptised 29 January 1849 St Peter, Liverpool parents Samuel and Margaret
Sep 1847 West Derby 20 1022 mmn Macken

I cannot find a marriage which fits for Samuel and Margaret
This is a later marriage. When looking at the 1871 census Margaret has the middle initial of E. Unless there are two couples with the same names.

15 Feb 1860 - Liverpool

Samuel Lightfoot - John Lightfoot - Father
Margaret Ellen Macken - Thomas Macken - Father
Finally found Samuel and Margaret's marriage - a case of better late than never

Marriage: 15 Feb 1860 St Peter, Liverpool, Lancashire, England
Samuel Lightfoot - Full, Commission Agent, Bachelor, Copperas Hill
Margaret Ellen Macken - Full, Spinster, Copperas Hill
Groom's Father: John Lightfoot, Farmer
Bride's Father: Thomas Macken, Ship Steward
Witness: Richard Morris; Ellen Jones
Married by Certificate by: A. J. Tomlin B. A. Curate
Register: Marriages 1860, Page 6, Entry 12

I can't find the Lightfoot family in 1851.

Ada born 1847 but in 1861 what looks to be Ada is down as age 7 ?
