BRADSHAW's of LANCASHIRE
Looking for JOSEPH CECIL BRADSHAW born 1856 app.This family of BRADSHAW's comes from around MANCHESTER area and could connect to the Bradshaw's of Staffordshire and Cheshire.
We know of the family back to 1856 and have possibilities for earlier generations.
Joseph Cecil Bradshaw(Snr) M.Emily Jane Slinger.Children- Joseph Cecil.b.1892,Arthur b.1892,George Herbert.b.1898,Ada Lilian.b.1899.
Joseph Cecil(Jnr)M.Mary Walkden in Salford.Children George A.b.1932,Lillian E.b.1934.Joseph and Brian b.1935.
Both parents died while the children were young and George and Lillianne were bought up by Arthur(their uncle) and Joseph and Brian by Ada(Known as Lillian)their aunt.
Lots of research has been done trying to find Joseph Cecil's(Snr) parents.We have Joseph Cecil(Snr) appearing first in the 1881 census with Emily Jane Slinger and have information on the family from then on.We know that they didn't have children till 1892(or any that are mentioned)I have a birth.cert.that shows that Joseph Cecil Jnr.'s mother is Emily Slinger.
ADDED; It is now thought by several researches of this family that Joseph Cecil is the Joseph Wright of George Bagnall Bradshaw's family.(Mother Mary Dorothea Champion)So Charles Champion and Joseph Cecil are brothers and seemed to keep very much in touch as they lived in the same area a lot of their lives.Actually their wives were both Emily Jane's.Charles Emily Jane Parker and Joseph's Emily Jane Slinger.
