Married Margaret Lyons on 16.12.1887 at Holy trinity church, Habergham Eaves, Burnley. He is described there as a Machine grinder age 21. At that time he was living at Free Trade Street. His father is named as Thomas Albiston, grinder. William and Margaret went on to have 4 children-Margaret, William, Joseph and James(born 15.02.1903).James was my husband's Grandfather.
The Thomas AlbistonI have presumed was his father was married to Johanna Lunt on 05.08.1844. He was described as a bachelor of full age, but his occupationis waterman and still described as waterman on Johanna's death certon 03.04.1896 so I may be on the wrong track. This Thomas Albiston is in the 1901 census age 78, described as Tug Boat Captain,employment status undefined (presumably retired!) living at 31 Victoria Road , Widnes with his family.
