Subject: [YORKSGEN] SHARROCKS in Hunslet
Date: Sat, 1 Aug 2009 14:03:07 +0100
I am hoping that the name SHARROCKS or SHORROCKS in Hunslet may mean something to someone.
John Shorrocks was born in Dukinfield, Cheshire, in 1849 but by 1871 he was lodging with Elizabeth Winterbottom and her granddaughter, Mary Rayner, at Powell Street, Hunslet. (His name was spelt SHEROCKS) John married Mary the following year, I'm not sure where, and I have them in 1881 and 1891 still in Hunslet. I believe John died in 1904, but haven't found him in 1901.
John and Mary had at least six children and I'm interested in what may have happened to them: Ellen (1875), Maria (1877), Elizabeth (1879), Emily (1880), John (1883 and Joseph (1886).
Hope these may ring a bell with someone.
