I've checked the 1841 image again and it definitely gives the age for Seth as 15, occ Silk Thrower. Not sure if the age is a mistake and should read 45 perhaps. I can't see a baptism which would fit an age of 15(or thereabouts) in 1841

Thanks Emeltee.

COTTAM, MARY ANN - PRICE
GRO Reference: 1858 M Quarter in SALFORD Volume 08D Page 84

Don't know yet if this fits

COTTAM, ANN - PRICE
GRO Reference: 1862 S Quarter in STOCKPORT Volume 08A Page 64

Last one does not fit but family may or may not be in 1861 with birth in 1858.

Marriages Sep 1853
BEELEY James Stockport 8a 119
COTTAM Thomas Stockport 8a 119
PRICE Mary Ann Stockport 8a 119
WESTON Fanny Stockport 8a 119

Cotton Weaving Mill
residence: 1861 Great Bolton, Lancashire

Interesting name for that child.

I can find a Mary in 1861 but there is an older sister born 1854 which does not fit.

Looks like the family left England before 1861.
