Isaac Booth and Mary Washington - my great great great grandparents


Isaac Booth was born probably at Beacom, near Werneth on 3rd May 1801 to John and Ann Booth, and if this is the correct record was baptised at Hatherlow Congregational Church on 31st July 1801. Mary Washington was born on 30th October 1805 at Bramhall  to William Washington, a weaver, and Dinah, née Hallworth. (See the Hallworth research here). William and Dinah baptised their children at an unusual mixture of Church of England Churches and Non-conformist Chapels. Mary was born on 30th October 1805 at Marple and baptised on 14th November 1805 at Tiviot Dale Wesleyan Methodist Chapel at Heaton Norris. Isaac lived in Marple all his life, except he had moved to Hazel Grove before his death in September quarter  1878. He was buried at All Saints Marple on 7th September 1878. Mary had already died in May quarter 1863 in Marple and was also buried in All Saints Marple, on 18th May 1863. All the baptisms known of their children were across the bridge over the River Goyt at the Mill Brown Independent Chapel in Marple Bridge.

John Booth, was born on 22nd September 1828 at Marple and baptised at Mill Brow Independent at Marple Bridge. John presumably did not survive A John Booth of the correct age can be found in Censuses, but his father turns up in later Censuses and it is not Isaac.
