Descendants of William Fairhurst

Descendants of William Fairhurst

Generation No. 1


1.  WILLIAM1 FAIRHURST was born 1832 in Bolton, Lancashire, England. He married SARAH.  She was born 1836 in Bolton, Lancashire, England.

 

Notes for WILLIAM FAIRHURST:

 

My guess is the the index entry for William Fairhurst, age 53, died March Quarter 1897 in Bolton is probably him11. Two years is a very small error margin on the age for people who probably didn't know exactly how old he was.

 

I think the index entry for Sarah Fairhurst, age 59, died March Quarter 1893 in Bolton is probably her11. Again, two years isn't bad, and she changed her age much more often than he did in the census. The other option is the 49 year old Sarah Fairhurst who died in September Quarter 1892 in Bolton11.
