My Knapper family history

I have been trying to trace my family but I am very stuck on a Steven(or Stephen), Knapper married to a Harriet Rowbotham, does anyone have a record for this marriage?

Steven Knapper married Harriet Rowbotham in around 1880's?? (Stephen Knapper died soon after the children were born and Harriet went onto remarry and have 3 sons.)
They had five children:
Arthur Knapper(1896 - 1962)see below.
I don't know anything more about the below people, any info would be great.
Alethea Knapper (married a Fred somebody).
Gladys Knapper (married a Jack Roberts and had 3 children Enid, Brenda, Arthur).
Bertha Knapper (Married James Vernon and had 3 children, Gwen, Harry, Majory).
William Knapper(married Edith Sandiwell and had 6 children, William, Letha, Edith, Fanny, Bertha, Gladys).

Arthur Knapper married Margaret Ellis (1892 - 1975) in around 1900's. They had six children:
Arthur Knapper(1917 - 1984)(married Beryl Kelly and had 2 children Michael and Helen).
Alice(b1920)(married Stanley Griffin and had 1 child Pamela Robinson).
Doris(1922 - 1984)(married Frank Bentley and had 3 children Margaret, Frank, John).
Elsie(1923-1993)(married Ken Spindler and had 2 children Susan and Alison).
William Fred Knapper(b1928, my grandfather)(married Eilleen Adams and had 4 Children, Simon(my father), kathy, kim, Joann).
Eric(b1934)(married Molly Teggin and had 1 child Steven).

If any one has any information, records or marriage dates about the people nearer the top of the list I would be most greatfull to receive it, or be notified about it. Also if any one can add anymore names to this please let me know.
My email address is

Alice Knapper.
