    Default finney/butts family

    Hi guys
    I am after some help looking for my family history
    My G G Grandfather was born in Liverpool in around 1806
    I know he was a wood turner by trade and he moved to Birmingham about 1832ishi
    I have found all the children births at st martins church in Birmingham but have
    Been unable to find a marriage so im assuming that he married in Liverpool
    He married an Elizabeth Horton or Orton born about 1810
    My G Grandfather birth certificate said mother maiden name Horton and his brothers said Orton
    I also have a problem as my G Grandfather used the surname Finney or Feeney
    But the rest of the family used Butts and used Finney as a middle name
    And at this time I have not been able to find out why?

    Thanks for looking
    Rich

    Hi Rich, You don't say what your G G Grandfather's first name was! In the LancsBMD site, there's a William Finney married to a Eliza Horton in St Mary's, Oldham ...in 1878! Could they have decided to marry late?

    Ref: CE235/23/237

    Hi
    sorry his name would help
    his name was John Butts i think ?
    all the children were christened in st martins church birmingham
    either butts or fienney butts
    in 1841 census he is listed as butts living in Moors Row Birmingham
    1851 census Moors Row Birmingham still butts
    Census from 1861 living in 36 Birchall Street, Birmingham listed as fienney

    John Finney butts died Dec 1861 source record Aston 6d 145
    Elizabeth died under Butts Dec 1864 source Aston 6d 208

    regards richard

    Hiya Rich ....there is a John Finney who is a Toolmaker marries an Elizabeth Lloyd 3rd December 1833 at St Nicholas Liverpool ....
    Elizabeth Lloyd is a widow ...maybe her maiden name was Horton...the problem is her name
    Orton
    Horton
    Houghton
    Haughton ......in early 1800`s it could have been spelt in any of these ways ....anyway ...go to www.lan-opc.org.uk/Search/indexp.html and then click on CLICK ...put in John Finney ..marriage....and search.....have a look yourself.....Horton /Orton/Houghton/Haughton is a predominately Lancashire name.....far too many Elizabeth Horton babtisms to decipher yours, but have a look.....allan
