I have gone back to Francis Cartledge, christened in 1838 in Rochdale. His parents were Isaac and Mary. I can not find anything else about them. Isaac was either a Carter or a carder in the cotton industry.
Francis had a sister called Jane who was born around 1840.
Francis married Jane Drinkwater in 1857 at Manchester Cathedral.
They had several children including
Clara b 1858 Sophia b 1865 Francis b 1867 Maryb 1870 Isaac b 1872 Robert b 1874 Arthur b 1876.
Francis (the son) married Catherine Dolman (nee White) at Manchester Cathedral in 1891.
They had John Arthur in April 1893 (he was my grandfather).
All were in and around Cheetham, Newton Heath and Hulme. If you come across any information on Isaac Iwould be greatly interested.
