Dear Joan, I am researching my family history and wonder if you
might have any information concerning my GGGrandfather(George Irlam
born in Manchester about 1810) who was a Chimney Sweep in Knutsford
from before 1851 until he died in 1871 and was buried at St John
the Baptist July 14 1871.
He was married 3 times that I know of to(1)Keziah Brown a tinkers
daughter age 65 on May 30 1850 at St Johns(2)Caroline Thomas at
Rostherne St Mary's on July 18 1853 and (3) Mary Burns on Nov 25
1861 at St Johns. GGrandfather also George Irlam was born of this
last marriage and baptised in St Johns on May 17 1862.
They were recorded as living at the quaint address of "back
passage to the moon" which I believe was on Market Place in
the 1851 census and latterly they lodged in Market place(1861 census)
I would appreciate any information you might have on George the
