Reposting Interests updated: My earliest Rowbottom sighting is Joseph Rowbottom (market gardener)who married Elizabeth Owen in 1844 and appears in 1851 censuswith one child Martha b 1848.There were two more children I know of Joseph b 1852 and William b 1859 Stretford. My line goes through Joseph.I have a query about Jessie Rowbottom, who does not appear with the rest of her family in the 1901 census . Any other rowbottoms out there. There doesn't appear to be much rowbottom activity on this forum. Anne in Australia.
