My mistake in the first instance MLT....I put the wrong occupation in. I thought I had edited it, before anyone would notice.redf):biggrin:

Yep. Spinner, Master.:)

Stone mason is the occupation of William Ewbanks father.:rolleyes:

So, the Deansgate census is not right.
I've no idea where I got these from, maybe the Yorkshire Indexers.

Not having any joy finding Isaac Wilson in the Censuses.

A check on the Church Records on irishgenealogy.ie brings up a marriage in Dublin 17 October 1809 for an Isaac Wilson to a Jean/Jane Rourke plus two baptisms James 1810 and Jane 1822 but no sign of a Sarah. As both the marriage and the two baptisms took place in St Catherine, Dublin I've been through the images for baptisms there 1817-1820 but still no Sarah Wilson.

Don't suppose you've got any easy ones to look up !

I think the Isaac Wilson you found in Dublin, is the one in Deansgate....maybe.!!

If it was easy, I could do it myself. Nothing like a challenge.:2fun::2fun:

I would think, that Isaac Wilson would have come to England at some point, being a Weaver....and I guess in the area Sarah was married, would be the perfect place to work for as a Weaver, if he was alive. Not shown as deceased on the marriage cert, but that's no guarantee he wasn't.

Not sure he'll be found, with any confidence.!
