Looking for Richard Whitlow of Manchester.

Query by Ricksil26

Richard's son George, was born in Manchester on 5 Jan 1832.

He married Theresa Holdsworth BEARD (born in 1853 in Melbourne, Victoria) in 1876 in Walhalla.

His parents Richard Meadowcroft Whitlow and Sarah (nee Gardiner), I am not sure, could have lived in Lancashire.

Hope you can help, regards Rick Silverwood.

Richard Meadowcroft Whitlow did live in Manchester in the 1800's - I have not been able to find a birth or death date. He was a solicitor. I think the company was Radford & Whitlow or Whitlow, Radford & Whitlow. Not sure if the 2nd whitlow was a son or cousin. He had at least 6 children. As well as George Gardiner/Gardner Whitlow there was Edward Hardman/Hardmond Whitlow my Great Great Grandfather he died in Melbourne in 1870 aged 38. He played cricket for Manchester and aat least 3 first class games for Victoria. He married Charlotte Horn. They had 1 son. Richard Edward Whitlow who married Alice Sibly and their son Eric Meadowcroft Whitlow (My Grandfather).
George had about 7 or 8 daughters a few died quite young I believe in Walhalla. I think there was a second wife as well as Theresa Beard.

I have found out some more information. Richard was Born in 1794 and died in 1881. In the 1881 census he was living with his daughter in Lancashire Mary/Maud Frances Ross (I think). She married Gordon Ross. I think that Sarah died around about the 1770s.
Richard had 7 children.

William Ernest
Sophia Louisa married Charles Barber Banning Post Master at Liverpool for about 48 years.

George Gardner left Liverpool on 29th July 1852 on the ship "Thorwaldsen" bound for the gold rush in Victoria, Australia, arriving at Port Phillip, Melbourne on 11th November.

Along with many other gold seekers, he travelled 230 k/m east of Melbourne to the new booming mining town ship of Walhalla.
