I too have Welsby's from Little Hulton, Little Lever and the Bolton area of Lancashire, UK. Census 1851 and 1861, Little Lever John William Welsby born abt 1876 - I have not yet found his baptism or birth in the BMD indexes. He subsequently married Edith Ellen Gregory - have her birth certificate but cannot find marriage. (I do NOT believe it was in the Bolton area -she was in Handsworth, Stafford for 1881 census. Dorothy Evelin Welsby bn Henley-in-Arden 1/9/1892, supposedly John William Welsby and Edith Ellen Gregory's daughter, again I cannot find her birth registration. Have some info from Little Hulton Parish records would welcome contact from anyone with an interest in this area. Have birth certificate for Israel Welsby (John William Welsby's father).Israel was born Little Hulton in June 1844 parents John Welsby and Ann Whittle.I believe they were married at Manchester Cathedral in 1831 (from IGI) but I have not sighted registers.
