Looking for Patrick HOLCROFT of Manchester, UK

Patrick HOLCROFT is my brick wall. Born Ireland (possibly Northern Ireland) about 1800 he married Manchester girl Mary CROPLEY 1824. The couple had 5 children, Thomas, Sarah A, Mary A, William and Joseph. The family lived in Manchester and all worked in the cotton mills. Most of Patrick and Mary's children I have been able to follow, William is my 2nd great grandfather, but I cannot find reference to Patrick or Mary apart from the England Census dates 1841 and 1851. Most frustrating of all I cannot find any information about either Patrick or Mary's parents. The date regarding the couples marriage in 1824 was sent to my by a relative but there is no further details available. What I do have is "St Mary's Church, Parish of Manchester, (Bishop's Transcripts)".
