Wallworks of Little Hulton and Walkden
Seeking information on the above families in Little Hulton and nearby. In particular information on Thomas Wallwork, hatter, who appears to have been married to Rachel Kay in Bury on 3.1.1764 and had 5 children there. After Rachel's death, Thomas married a Mary Yate in Bury on 29.6.1772. They then seem to have moved to Little Hulton and had several more children founding quite a dynasty. Jesse Wallwork - the famous mining engineer - may be one of Thomas and Mary's descendents. I believe I descend from their grandson William born 1810/11 in Little Hulton.
