My Great Grandmother Esther had two children with a John Howarth i presume they were married but have yet to find a marriage certificate. They were considered by my family to be married and stayed together till they died. Esther was origonally esther boardman born in aspull wigan 1881/82. In 1901 she married a James Hart. They later seperated but my grandfather was born in 1907 (john Hart) but his father was john Howarth. around 1912 my grandfathers sister was born edna howarth, although we also have known her to be referrred to as edna hart. Can anyone who has come across this family shed some light on it for me. My grandfather passed away 20 years ago so i have no other source of information and have come to a dead end with researching john howarth.
