I have previously posted on GenForum under "Palethorpe".
My gr, gr, great grandfather was John Pailthorp, ~1782-1858.I don't know where he was born.He died in Stalybridge, Cheshire.
John married Ruth Staveley (1777/1781-1867), on March 15, 1803, Strelley, Nottinghamshire.
They lived in Belper, Derbyshire until they moved to Stalybridge ~1822.

My line:Annie, 1907-1984 (my mother) > Joel, 1875-1943 > James, 1852-1930 > John, 1824-1844 > John, ~1782-1858.
I am wondering if there is a Pailthorp(e) out there that knows:
1.Where John ~1782-1858 is from and his parentage.
2.Why John and Ruth named one of their sons:SEWELL Pailthorp.
Thank you for your time.I look forward to hearing from you.
