In Reply to: Rev James Moorhouse m Grace Riley by Mark E. Moorhouse of 307

hello mark

my tree starts with a james moorhouse
who was born in Whalley

He was born in approx 1794

He married a mary tomlinson

They had a number of children

the first 6 were all christened together on
5 th july 1835 their dates of birth are in brackets.

grace (20.12.1815)
mary (25.2.1819)
James (15.8 1820)
anna (26.5.1826)
Isaiah (
collinge (11.9.1831)

Sarah was christened in 1837
All were baptised in Burnley and were born in Whalley

there were two more children at least
these were
and William enoch

I am a direct descendant of James

He owned a cotton mill in Rossendale
and died in 1880

The link I am hoping to confirm is that the james of 1794 is the son of rev james moorhouse.
The timing, the childrenns names ant the locations would seem to be strong pointers.

I live with my family in Dunstable, England
I was born in Cheshire, England
