Richard & John Haworth calico printers in Lancashire c1780
Posted by: Stephen Howarth (ID *****9083) Date: August 17, 2009 at 16:46:30

Can anyone please help me find parents or relations for the following two couples?

John Haworth, calico printer, married Ann Davison on 10 Nov 1794 at Bury St Mary’s: Richard Haworth, calico printer, married Hannah Davison at St Mary’s on 22 April 1806. Both Davisons were from a calico printing family in Carlisle. Richard was born in 1786/87 and gave his birthplace as ‘Rossendale’ in censuses until his death in 1870. According to the 1841 census John was born in Lancashire in 1772/73.

John and Richard are too close in age to be father and son: they may be brothers, or uncle and nephew – or more distant relations. They both lived in Ramsbottom in the 1819s and close to Bury Ground printworks in the 1840s. They seem to have been C of E but I have not found a baptism for either.

Does anyone have these two Haworths in their family, or have any pointers to who their parents were? Logically their father(s) would have been calico printers in the 1770s and 1780s, which could provide a clue as to location – eg Crawshawbooth and/or Darwen.
