The 1841 Census shows Henery (50) and Hannah (43) Drinkwater residing at Clough Head in the Civil Parish of Brownside, Bugsworth, and Chinley.There is a Joseph Drinkwater in the household who is likely to be Henry’s father.The following children are present in the household: Joseph (2) Nathan (4 months)
The 1851 Census shows Henry (50) and Hannah (43) Drinkwater residing at Clough Head in the Civil Parish of Brownside, Bugsworth, and Chinley with the following children: Joseph (12) Nathan (10) Ann (9) Peter(6) Ester (4)
Henry claims to be a ‘farmer of 50 acres’.He also claims birth in Highlane, Cheshire not Derbyshire.
The 1861 Census shows Adelaide resident with her parents, Henry (60) & Hannah (54) at Clough Head in the Civil Parish of Brownside, Bugsworth, and Chinley.Her older siblings are shown as Joseph (20), Ann B (18), and Ester (14).
The 1871 Census shows Adelaide occupied as a housekeeper for her unmarried brother, Peter B Drinkwater in Ardwick, Manchester.
I had thought that Adelaide’s father, Henry, might be the Henry Drinkwater who was born to Jo & Ann Drinkwater on 2 Jul 1800 and baptised on 11 Jul 1800 at Marple Bridge, but this does not agree with Henry’s claim on census returns to have been born in Highlane, which is a few miles south-west of Macclesfield, Cheshire.I would suggest checking the parish registers in the vicinity of Highlane for evidence of Henry’s birth and parentage.If you find his baptism record, you may also find baptism records for siblings in the same place.
