I wonder if you can help me or indicate who might be able to help further?
Over a number of years I have been interested in my “Walton” family history. The family lived in Heptonstall for many years. Leaving for Cornholme sometime after 1851 and before 1864. I have now traced the family back to my 4 X Great Grandfather, Moses.
He was born around 1740 and died 12th July 1801. It would appear that he was married to Mary Greenwood on 16th March 1758, they had at least 3 children, William, Henry and Jimmey. Mary died and he remarried Annah Greenwood a widow at Heptonstall St Thomas on 8th February 1781. They had at least 3 children, Tommy, William and Joseph, b. 6th April 1788. Joseph being my 3 X Great Grandfather.
Joseph appears in the 1841 census with his family living at Broadstone.
My 2 X Great Grandfather John married Betty (nee Pickles) at Heptonstall Parish Church on 30th December 1841. They lived next door to each other in Broadstone in the 1841 census.
I am interested in any further information about Moses. Is it possible to trace his family any further back?
There is a family rhyme indicating that Moses father is Harry and Grandfather Fred.
I wonder if you can help me or point me in the right direction to discover further information?
