Rev J Billington St Mary’s Hidden Gem , Manchester 1837 - 1844
Posted by: danny billington (ID *****4239) Date: May 05, 2011 at 03:44:16
  of 884

I visited yesterday The Church of St. Mary, Mulberry Street (The Hidden Gem), in Manchester to see where my ancestor Jane Billington was baptised in 1827.
Unable to gain access to the interior, I settled for some exterior photographs - one of the images taken reveals the Rev J Billington 1837 – 1844.
Of course, I am curious as to who he was and if there was a connection at all to my family, although he was in house some ten years after Jane’s baptism and of course, i am aware that the surname in Lancashire is more common than it is elsewhere.
I thought I might find him on the 1841 Census but a name search does not come up and I am not familiar enough to know which sub district to search ( presume he lived close to ST Mary’s)
The church web site mentions him only in passing and I cannot find anymore about him anywhere. Normally there would be something in alumni records or an obituary somewhere.
Can anyone offer any help ?
