The extract is very interesting I have a copy of the baptism records of burnley chapelry for 5 july 1835 it provides details of birth dates of the 6 moorhouse children of james and mary baptised together
this is pretty conclusive the census returns i have seem suggest james was born circa 1794 the names of the children and the order they were born ie first girl- grace first boy- james
also william having a middle name of enoch
all suggest a strong likely link
I am away to see my mother in Cheshire Im going to seek out longholme chapel
Im also going to have a look again at james moorhouses mill in whitewell bottom
It seems, oddly, that in my family tree,i am the first first-born son not to be called james.
Mark, most importantly, i am very sorry about the bereavement in your family. sincere condolences from the moorhouses of dunstable, bedfordhire; and sale, cheshire England.
