Subject: [ENG-MAN] PARSONAGE
Date: Sat, 5 Oct 2002 11:53:34 -0400
I have been given information from an 1814/5 and 1821 Manchester & District Directory. It shows a Samuel PARSONAGE Plumber and Glazier 2 Port street Manchester. Port street ran south from Ancoats lane through to Piccadilly and ran into Portland street.
We also have a PARSONAGE family in a Denton Trade directory dated 1832 for a Henry PARSONAGE who was a Plumber and Glazier. And a Samuel PARSONAGE in the 1851 census for Denton who was listed as a Plumber and Glazier. This family was in the same business on the 1861 and the 1871 census in Denton.
I think the Samuel in Manchester in 1814 could have been either a grandfather or an uncle to the Samuel in the 1851 census. Or possibly he moved the business to Denton after 1821. Please can I ask a favour, if any one has any trade directories for Manchester before 1814 or after 1821, would they look and see if there is any more information about a PARSONAGE family in the Plumbing and Glazier business.
It would be helpful if I could locate the family of the Samuel who lived in Manchester.
Port street ran from Ancoats lane through to Piccadilly and ran into Portland street.
My thanks for reading this, Please keep the PARSONAGE name in mind, just in case you might come across it when looking at any old records.
Your help is always appreciated.
Regards to all.
