In 1861 George is 35yrs, unmarried , back in Kent, living at High Street, Sevenoaks with his sister Elizabeth Ashdown 36yrs, unmarried, housekeeper. In 1871 George is 45yrs, unmarried, master watchmaker at same address.

ATHERTON John (Jnr) Watchmaker 1842: John Atherton (Jnr),watchmaker. Born circa 1842 and was the son of John Atherton (born circa 1803 - also a watchmaker). Census 2nd April 1871 he was a watchmaker living with his wife Mary at 22 New Road, Prescot, Lancashire. Census 3rd April 1881, still a watchmaker, at 22 Warrington Road (Formerly New Road?), Warrington. By November 1886 his occupation had changed to a foreman (we suspect at a mine) and he was living in West Derby. He had nine children: John, Alice, Robert, Mary, William, Edmund, Thomas, Ellen and Emily. Contact Kelly by.
ATHERTON John (Snr) Watchmaker 1803: John Atherton (Snr), watchmaker. Born circa 1803 in Prescot, Lancashire, UK. Census 6th June1841 he was a watchmaker at Houghton Street, Prescot, Lancashire.

ATHERTON Thomas Watchmaker & Coal Miner 1865: Thomas Atherton, watchmaker & coal miner. The 1881 UK census lists him as 16yrs, living with his father at 22 Warrington Road, (formerly New Road?) Prescot, Lancashire, UK. 1891: 26yrs, living at Whiston Cross, Whiston, Lancashire (now Merseryside) and is a coal miner. It is perhaps not a coincidence that in this census, he is shown living in the household next to the parents of his wife Mary Lyon. Mary's father and brothers are all coal miners. Perhaps the coal mining boom of the time snatched him away from a family tradition of watchmaking. Thomas and Mary had 12 children (that we know of) but we have only been able to find nine of them so far - Minnie, William, Thomas, John, Jessie, Mary, Sarah Heleanor, Jim and Hannah Standish. See Watchmakers Index for his father John (born c1841) and grandfather John (born c1803). Contact Kelly by.
