I would be happy to hear from anyone who has a link to the following James KAY and Susanna KAY (nee OGDEN). Shown below are the details from the birth of one of their children Sarah Ellen
Reg dist. Ashton and Oldham 1846 birth in the sub-district of Ashton in the county of Lancaster

Sarah Ellen maried Edward Traynor they had 5 children named Bernard Thomas Astley, Frakenburg (aka Cissie), Rose, Edward and William, do any of these names suggest a further link? They lived mostly in Salford Manchester but may be linked to Ashton-under-Lyne.(Sutherland may be another name linked to this family)
