A THORNBER FAMILY IN BLACKBURN, LANCASHIRE, ENGLAND

WITH A CONNECTION TO GREAT HARWOOD

 

Lancashire Rose

I am grateful to Barbara Fox for assembling the following family group in Great Harwood.  Note that Martha and Ellen were initially baptised at a Wesleyan Chapel but were baptised again on the same day in 1834 at Great Harwood, together with Rebecca, William & David.  This practice was not uncommon if people changed their denomination but is more commonly seen when people switched to Methodism from Anglicanism which was the general movement in the early 19th century.

Census records have been found showing two more children, Elizabeth and Maria Wesley, for whom no baptism records have been found so far.  Thomas and Betty/Elizabeth Thornber appear in the census returns from 1841 to 1871, always in Blackburn.  The census shows that Thomas was born in Blackburn but no suitable baptism record has been identified so far.
