It's a long time since you posted this message - I hope the information I have is still of interest to you.
Your Thomas Pye who was married to Betsy Hargreaves (c 1888) was previously married to a Mary Cowgill (c 1873).
Thomas & Mary had two children John Thomas (c 1875) & Arthur (c 1876).
Arthur married my Jane Birch c 1905.My Birch ancestorsclaimed they were related to little Jimmy Clitheroe (the comedian) and this is where they get the link.....
Thomas and Betsy had three children Emma born 1889, James Robinson born 1894 and Walter born 1900.
Emma (Arthurs half sister) married James Robert Clitheroe they had only one son James Robinson Clitheroe (little Jimmy) born 1921.
Hardly a blood relative to my Birch's but my only claim to fame so far.
Happy hunting ... Julie
