Hi Tracy,

Found this marriage for a William Norris year 1860 dist Prescot, Lancs vol 8b page 771 there is a Hannah Colquit listed. The childrens birth cert's which will give you the mothers maiden name.
Ancestry is a bit slow at the moment, so will have another look later on at the
census.

My Husband had a Grandmother ,Emily Showell Norris But were not sure if the Showell is official as we can't find any information on her other than she married Charles Arthur Ellis, Her father was Walter Osborne Norris and William Henry Norris was present at the wedding that took place St Barnabus church at Openshaw in 1927.
Don't know if were connected but worth a try, Regards Janet
