Re: Thomas's father was William b 1784 Tatham
I have ascertained from the Cumbria Archive Service that Thomas (b1815)'s parents were William Charnley (christened on 7/11/1784 in Tatham Lancs) and Mary (details unknown). He had approx 5 siblings- James b 1780, Elen b 1782, John b 1783, Robert b 1791 and Bella b 1791.
I believe William's parents to be Thomas Charnley (b1756), who married Isabel Woods on 7/5/1780 at Tatham.
Thomas's parents may be Thomas Charnley (chr 9/2/1728) and Mary, married approx 1748. His siblings were James (chr 15/8/1731) and Mary (chr 23/6/1734)
Their parents were probably Thomas 'Junior', born between 1692 & 1700, and married either Anna Skirrow or Anna Sprote at Melling.
Does anyone have any more info on these Charnley's, and their ancestors?
