married Amelia Pickford at Manchester Cathedral, 1806. Known children:
I haven't yet found George's baptism record to confirm that William and Amelia were his parents or when he was born, but it does seem likely they are his parents due to their names and location.
George and Sophia married on New Year's Day
in 1842. Both were of full age. George was noted as being a grocer.
Thier daughter Emma had been born 5 months earlier.
Throughout his life, George worked as a commercial traveller. In the 1871 census George is noted as being born in St Mary's, Manchester.
George died in Islington Infirmary, 1879,
aged 76 years. The cause of death was paralysis. Sophia died in 1881,
aged 67 years, of bronchitis. In the 1881 census, Eliza and William
were both still living at home.
