Hello Patricia,
I have a couple of scraps of Moorhouse info for Macclesfield which may appear irrelevant at present but might "attach" themselves to your lines eventually.

A baptism at St Michaels in Macclesfield of Rebecca Moorhouse 22 Apr 1790 daughter of George and Martha Moorhouse

The 1881 census of Ashton under Lyne (Lancs/Cheshire border) shows a Henry Moorhouse age 52 a Tailor who was born in Macclesfield. His Family were :
Sarah Ann 46 wife
Elizabeth Ann 21 daughter unemployed
George Henry 19 son Coach builder
Mary 19 daughter Cotton weaver
Hannah 15 daughter Cottton weaver
Edwin 14 son barbers assistant
All were born Ashton upon Lyne



In the town of Sale, Cheshire the 1881 census shows a Matthew Henry Moorhouse 62 dealer in velvet and satin born Penistone Yorks.

And in Rainow, Cheshire a Martha Ann Moorhouse 57 widow who was born Macclesfield.

both long shots but perhaps worth jotting down.

Cheers Mark E. Moorhouse
