James Gaskill Cheetham. Cheshire and Lancs.UK.
I am trying to find out more about 3 generations, all with the same names, James Gaskill Cheetham.
JCG (number 1) i have no infromation on.
JGC (number 2) was born about 1817 in Stockport Cheshire. he lived in Crumpsall for most of his life. in 1846 he married Phoebe Jackson. his occupation was baker and provision dealer. i can trace then from the 1851 census onwards.
JGC (number 3),son of JGC number 2, was born about 1858 in Crumpsall. He lived in Crumpsall and Prestwich. he married in 1883 Mary Ellen Bailey. the 1901 census gives his occupation as Merchants clerk. i have traced them via the census records. A grand daughter of JGC and Mary remembers being taken to her grandparents for special teas.
i am wondering if anyone has any additional early info about this family or can trace the family back beyond JGC number 1? also what was the importance of the middle name 'Gaskill' to this family?
Thanks for any help anyone can give.
