I do have the details of the John KIRK, Elizabeth LAWTON marriage viz:
July 2 1843
John KIRK. full, Bach, Carter, 50 Little Bridgewater St., Thomas KIRK,
Elizabeth LAWTON, full, Spin, 5 Crescent Ancotes, Ephriam LAWTON, Carter.
Witnesses: James BALDWIN & Charles ANDREW.
I don't think that this marriage fits into my lot but one never knows.
With the introduction of the 1851 census on Ancestry.com I discovered
another John(b1807) & Elizabeth KIRK which blew a hole in my family history
web page as published. This John & Elizabeth had moved out of Coppenhall
and moved to Manchester/Salford where they were married and had a family.
She is the Elizabeth LATHAM who I had previously married off to John KIRK
(b1813). I now think that it is this latter John KIRK (b1813) who marries
Elizabeth POOLE and is the one who is associated with Margaret Ellen YOXALL
in the 1861 census. I need to take a look at the parish registers for
Watch this space.
