  Gaining the detail on "Peter Greenhalgh" B Cir.1853 Part 2
Family Tree

The birth certificate for Peter Greenhalgh born Cir. 1853 has arrived and good news its the correct one. Peter was born on the 19th March 1853 at Church Street, Elton, Bury, Lancashire... It confirms his mother Ann Chadwick and also from this I can say that Ann could not write as the certificate has a cross as her mark. Also confirmed is Peters father, Joseph a stone mason.

Its great to finally validate Peters Birth, and Marriage... Peters Death of course is confirmed through the tombstone inscription

I am now moving on another family member, this time on my mothers side, a Harry Herman Kenig, and I am looking forward to bringing this news to the website very soon... so do return to see the very latest research that I have carried out.

  Gaining the detail on "Peter Greenhalgh" B Cir.1853
Family Tree

I am now working on some detailed research validating information which I have, picking one name and driving through until I have all the information I can locate.

The first name is Peter Greenhalgh, born Cir. 1853 in Bury. I started by obtaining the marriage certificate to Betsy Suthurst on the 14th September 1875. The certificate shows the Peter was 22 years old, his father was Joseph Greenhalgh, a Stonemason. His residence was shown as Elton fold, Bury and they were married in the Brunswick chapel according to the rites of the United Methodist Free Church.

Betsy Suthurst was two years older than Peter at 24 and her fathers name was Henry Suthurst, his occupation was a coal miner. Her address at the time of marriage was Wellington Street, Elton.

My next step is to confirm the birth of Peter and I have requested a birth certificate which I think is the correct one. I will update the website once I have this information.
