    There may be some confusion here as Martha Snelson baptised 18 Jan 1860 at St Mary's is described as the daughter of Edward and Ann Snelson shoemaker of Greenway Street, Handbridge. However, the St Mary Marriage records of 1868-1910 detail Martha Snelson aged 32, daughter of Edward Snelson ( deceased ) farmer, marrying John Harkin (?) Jones on 2 January 1892.


    It is hard to imagine a shoemaker chucking in his art and becoming a sod-shoveller. I hope Richard can sort this out and has a few answers !

    The return states that Jane (?) Snelson, the head of the family, was temporarily
    absent at the time of the census. This may mean that Jane was Annies's
    grandmother, and therefore the grandmother of William & Hannah Roberts' two
    children. She may therefore be Hannah's mother perhaps making William & Hannah

    The return states that Jane (?) Snelson, the head of the family, was temporarily
    absent at the time of the census. This may mean that Jane was Annies's
    grandmother, and therefore the grandmother of William & Hannah Roberts' two
    children. She may therefore be Hannah's mother perhaps making William & Hannah
    the Uncle and aunt of Annie ?
