Hello Susan I have a William Wilde born 1827 in Saddleworth who married an Elizabeth Moors in Oldham in 1850; he was a coalmuner and moved to live in Hyde in 1851. William's Father was called John Wilde and he may have come from Saddleworth. I cannot find him on the 1841 Census.
I wonder if your researches had turned up the name of your John Wilde's Father. If it was John there is a slim chance that your John and my William are brothers. Regards Harry Wild PS My Grandfather dropped the 'e'
