Re: Rev James Moorhouse m Grace Riley

Alan says....."James Moorhouse's father, also named James moorhouse, married a mary tomlinson and had 10 children 6 of whom were baptised together in the chapelry of burnley on 5 july 1835"

After hours searching the Internet and the 1841 census for Newchurch-in-Rossendale, I have discovered that James and Mary marry in 1833 and that Mary is aged 37 in 1841. Therefore all the children baptised at Burnley cannot possibly be hers .... particularly James, so Mary Tomlinson is NOT Alan's direct ancestor. I think I know who is, Alan, but would like some firm census information from you first please, concerning this family.

I have local knowledge of the Sabden area, both present day and historical, but no family interest in the Moorhouse name. I'm willing to help where I can provided you (and/or others) will oblige by briefing me thoroughly and sharing the information you already have.

All the best,
