I found the family in the 1891 UK Census do you want the information or are you just trying to contact relations?

I have some of the information on the family Father Joseph, mother Mary (nee Sweetman), children Thomas born 1840, Joseph born 1843, Edward born 1849 and William Sweetman. I understand Josephs (snr) father was also Thomas but that might not be correct as there was also a Thomas around who was Joseph senior brother. Can you tell me if I have this correct please.

I also have an interest in meeting any of the family who may be still around in the Runcorn area when I visit later this year and was trying to reach out to anybody that is available in the area.

Thanks

OK I have found Joseph & Mary in the 1861 UK census living at Halton Road, Runcorn
Joseph, Head, married, 44 (1817) a Commercial Clek in a Soap Manufacturer born Runcorn
Mary, wife, 48 (1813) born Weaverham, Cheshire
Thomas, son, 21 (1840) a Shoemaker, Runcorn
William, son, 19 (1842) Mechanic Hotel Engine Turner, Runcorn
Joseph, son, 17 (1844, Watchmaker Finisher, Runcorn
James, son, 16 (1845) Iron Monger Apprentice, Runcorn
Hannah, daughter, 15 (1846) Schoilar, Runcorn
Edward, son, 12 (1849), Scholar, Runcorn
Eaton Hodgkinson, son, 9 (1852), Scholar, Runcorn
Henry, son, 7 (1854), Scholar, Runcorn
Mary, daughter, 5 (1856), Scholar, Runcorn

Re Joseph senior, our census go back to 1841 and he was already married to Mary at that time so cannot see his family however there is a baptism record for a Joseph Pritchard in Runcorn which is likely to be him. Christening date 15 December 1816: father Thomas Pritchard : mother Sarah : All Saints church, Runcorn, Cheshire

Hope this helps you

THANKS VERY MUCH FOR THE EXTRA INFORMATION AS I SEEM TO ONLY HAVE HAD PART OF THE FAMILY. I WAS HOPING TO FIND WHERE JOSEPH SENIOR WAS BURIED AND THOUGHT THAT IT MIGHT BE AT ALL SAINTS IN RUNCORN BUT CANT FIND ANY RECORDS. HAVE HAD A LOOK AT SOME STREET VIEWS OF THE CEMETERY BUT CANT SEE ANY HEADSTONES WHICH WERE THERE IN EARLIER DRAWINGS OF THE CEMETERY. HE PASSED AWAY IN 1875 AND HIS WIFE MARY IN 1886. WAS HOPING TO VISIT THE SITE IF I COULD FIND IT. JOSEPH JUNIOR IS IN THE NEWER RUNCORN CEMETERY. DO YOU KNOW WHICH ONE HE AND MARY ARE IN PLEASE. THANKS AGAIN FOR ALL YOUR HELP
