hi i am looking for info on a hanna towers any siblings and parents she married john gorham ( any info on him would also be a big help)in 1846 in chester he was born 1813 in kirton and she was born in 1821 chester they had a child william gorham born 1854 and hanna died in 1885 in chester Maria Nield married William Maddock ( a butcher) in Chester in Feb 1821. They had 5 children and she must have died befire 1851. That sadly is all the information I have so far.
So far as I know the Chester Gorhams all came from Captain John Gorham, a Suffolk man who was born at Kirton, near Ipswich in 1813, who married Hannah Towers in 1846. It looks as if his brother Samuel followed him to Chester and married Mary Williams in 1861. I do not know what happened to that family. Most of the Gorhams seem to come from East Anglia and the South East of England.
, i am also looking to see if there is any connection to Annie NIELD born 31.7.1871 in Macclesfield, Father William
m.9.5.1870= Mary (SHATWELL)was a pall of) Maxwell Peter GORHAM at
Bury High School in 1940/5 period. He was the same age b. 1930c.
- Could he be a family connection ??
The family had come to Bury in the early 1940s to avoid the London Blitz.
