Can anyone help find information on Mary Phythian who married William Haywood, a cutler, (William was from Wadsley), their first child Isabella was born in 1833 in Wadsley, I have not been able to find any record of their marriage, but going by the date of their first child I would think it would be 1832 or 1833, I have found some records from St James in Lancashire for Robert and Isabella Phythian had a baby named Mary on 30.05.1813 and I wonder if this is the Mary Phythian I am looking for, also the first child from the marriage of Mary Phythian and William Haywood was named Isabella therefore it is possible that it is the same Mary, however without a record of the marriage I can't confirm. As I can't find a record of their marriage in Lancashire I thought maybe they married in Wadsley. Children of Mary and William Haywood are
Isabella born 1833
Mary Ann 1849
Mary is my 3 x great grandmother. All information most gratefully received.
I think the surname Phythian lends itself to being misspelt.
On the GRO index, some of the births of the children have maiden names of Fitheian, some have Fitton.
The only marriage I can suggest is this one, its a long shot!
William Howard married Mary Newall Fithian on 28 Feb 1831 at Sheffield Cathedral.
I did find a slight connection.
Daughter Isabella Haywood b.1833 marries John Savage in 1852.
She dies in 1905 and the death is registered as Isabella Newill Savage.
Savage Isabella Newill 73 Mar 1905 Sheffield 9c 342
All guess work but it might give a lead somewhere.
Daughter Rosella Haywood b.1844 married Heber Rose in 1869.
Her son was named Henry Newall Rose.
ROSE Henry Newall Dec 1869 Wortley 9c 209
The baptism mentioned of a Mary Phythian in Manchester with parents Robert and Isabel could be correct.
I found this marriage on Ancestry
Marriage Date:19 Sep 1808
Marriage Place:Manchester, St John, Lancashire, England
Spouse:Isabella Newall Caldwell
I think you need to trace this family.
I will follow up this lead, it is very confusing there are so many spelling variations, but I think I am on the right track now.
Theres a burial for a Mary Ann Storey, aged 59, Wadsley ( address 44 Bamforth Street) in 1907. Could this be her?
Hi again Peter
Wadsley Church is where James Story was buried in 1900, so...
Thanks for the burial details of James and Mary Ann Storey. I couldn't find these on the Sheffield Indexers burial search - should I be typing something different to just their surnames etc or have you been able to locate them on another website?
Unfortunately We dont cover those burial years on our site, but I did find them on Findmypast!
