Hi
I am looking for the family of my ggg grandmother Nancy(or possibly Anne) Twyford. She was born around 1807, married James Langley in 1827 and died in 1879. All in Stockport Cheshire. Apart from this I have no info on her family. If anyone can help please drop me a line.

Thanks Nick

Hi Nick,

Found the following-1851 census, civil parish Stockport, reg dist Stockport, sub reg dist Stockport 2nd

address 33 Higher Barlow Row

Anne Langley dau age 12 occ power loom wearver cotton
Charles Langley son age 21 occ power loom weaver cotton
Elizabeth Langley dau age 18
James Langley head age 45 occ Mat finisher
James Langley son age 16 occ warehouseman
Nancy Langley wife age 43
Robert Langley son age 10
Sarah Anne Langley dau age 7

Had a look on the LDS IGI nothing for a Nancy , 4 Ann's came up although not born in Cheshire. Will have another look on 1841 to see where she is hopefully she may be with her
own family.

Charles Langley age 11
Elizabeth Langley age 9
James Langley age 7
Ann Langley age 3
Robert Langley age 6 months

and living in next household is

Hi Julie

I'm such an idiot. My partner is always telling to look next door, but I missed that one. I did find James' parents in the next street though. So thanks for that.

Next question is James the elder died in 1855. On his death cert it says cause of death was "suicide by hanging being insane". My question is do medical/coroner records survive from this period (or did thet ever exist) and if so can i access them.

Again thanks for the Twyford info.

Slightly embarrassed Nick

Hi Julie

Having looked at the 1841 census it would appear that Robert Twyford is living in the same house as James and Nancy. I cant believe I missed it.

Thank you very much
Nick
