Since our last message i've received further information regarding my Beddow roots. At the time of the 1881 Census my Mary Jane Beddow was living with the rest of the family at Gorton nr. Manchester.Only a couple of miles from Beswick. Father Robert Mother Ellen. others William15, James11, Robert8, John6, Charles4, Thomas2. Roberts father was also called William so it may be that William was a traditional family name.
