William TRENBATH, b. 1726, ,,CON, occupation Salt Officer, d. 23 Jan 1800, , Wincham, CHS, buried: 26 JAN 1800, St Helen's Church, Witton, CHS. One of the three Trenbath copy books (see later) notes William's date of birth as 1726 but, infuriatingly, doesn't give the place of birth.

He married Ann DRIVER, m. 14 Apr 1748, in Parish Church, Ubbeston, Suffolk, Eng, b. cir CA 1726, d. 26 Jul 1770, , , CHS, buried: 28 Jul 1770, St Helen's Church, Witton, CHS.

Her burial is recorded in Witton Chapel, Northwich, CHS. She was aged 44.

I. Mary TRENBATH, b. 22 Apr 1749, , Heveningham, Suffolk, England,6 d. 30 Nov 1763, , , CHS,6 buried: 1 Dec 1763, Witton Chapel, Witton, CHS. She was the original owner of the 1704 prayer book, which I have in my possession, presumably inherited from Eliza TRENBATH, who died in 1912. It has 'Mary TRENBATH, her book, 1760, born April 22nd 1749' written inside.

II. William TRENBATH, b. 19 Aug 1750, , , SFK. Called 'Billy' by his father in his day book:'July 5th 1756 - pair shoes for Billy 1/6. Ditto myself 6/6.'

In William's day book there is an illegible word under the entry of birth... ?'---ing'. It looks like a place-name, so the place of birth and bp given here may be wrong.

VI. John DAMER TRENBATH, b. 28 APR 1757,6 d. 23 Sep 1766,6 buried: 26 Sep 1766, Blessed Virgin Mary Parish Church, Bowdon, CHS.

VII.

Ron MacIntyre thinks it was a family tradition.

Emily's death was reported as being due to 'Marasmus', which means severe malnutrition or severe malabsorbsion of nutrients. I wonder if this may have been due to coeliac disease, from which her grand-daughter (Sheila Trenbath) suffers mildly.

13. Alfred TRENBATH, (son of Thomas TRENBATH and Catherine LAWTON) b. 7 May 1848, , Barton, Cheshire, England,37 occupation Solicitor, d. SEP 1922, , Macclesfield, CHS.

He was left the income from 500 legacy by Eliza Trenbath in 1912. He experienced poor health. An unfortunate case with criminal clients led to his decline, although he was totally exonerated from blame. (This needs verification). 1919 Directory gives an Alfred Trenbath as living at 40 Poplar Grove, Sale, which may be him.

I think he was at no 7 Worsley Road in 1881 census (3883-112-25).

He married Sis THISTLETHWAITE, m. JUN 1874, in , Barton, Cheshire, England.

F. Frances TRENBATH, b. 1801, , Northwich, CHS, occupation Straw hat maker.

She was born after her father had died. It may be she who died in 1/1852 - St Cath House registers. OR.... Possibly the mother of Frances Thacker, milliner, who was living with her Aunt, Sarah TRENBATH at Tivoli Cottage, Worsley Road, Peel Lane in 1851. She died in Australia, I think. Bob Carter is investigating.

1851 Census for Tivoli Cottage, 147 Peel Lane, Worsley Road, Broughton:

Sarah TRENBATH, head, unmarried, 52, Milliner, b Northwich (Witton is part of Northwich);

Frances THACKER, niece, U, 23 (thus born about 1827), Milliner, b Hulme, Manchester.

VIII. Frances TRENBATH, b. 16 Nov 1760, ,,SAL, d. ?. She was 40 when she married William Thompson.

She married William THOMPSON, m. 19 Oct 1801, in St Helen's Church, Witton, CHS,4 b. cir CA 1776, occupation 'Rockgetter'.

William: He was a widower, aged 35, when he married Frances. The marriage was by licence. The licence (Chester CRO ref 283/48 and /49) was dated 18 OCT 1801 and records him as being 'of Witton, CHS.  The witnesses were Jn Wilding and Jas Swindall. Both signed and the marriage was by licence. 

IX. Thomas TRENBATH, b. 15 Jan 1763, ,Witton, CHS.6 Living in Bury when William was born (assuming that I have linked William to the correct parents) and in Stockport in 1792 when Thomas was born. No further references to him have been found, unless the death of Thomas Trenbath in Stockport (13 August, 1793) refers to him and not to his son.   

William TRENBATH, b. 10 Mar 1790, , Bury, LAN, occupation Clerk/Agent - being researched. William Trenbath - born 10 MAR 1790 at Bury, Bp 13 MAR 1791 at St Mary's, Bury.

Thomas TRENBATH, b. 5 Jul 1792, , Stockport, CHS,4 buried: 13 AUG 1793, St Mary's, Stockport, CHS.8 Thomas Trenbath

bp 5 JUL 1792 at Stockport, CHS. bp 6 AUG 1792 at St Mary's, Stockport. The Parish register says 'of Thomas and Mary Trenbath of Stockport'.

In the National Burial Index there is a Thomas Trenbath who was buried at St Mary's, Stockport, on 13 August, 1793 and I have assumed that this is the Thomas born in 1792, although it COULD refer to his father. The index and Parish register could be looked at to see if more details are given..

X. Mary TRENBATH, b. 2 Feb 1766, , Dunham Woodhouses. 6 I have assumed that the family were at Dunham Woodhouses by now.

XI. Charlotte TRENBATH, b. 12 Jun 1768, ,Dunham Woodhouses, CHS,6 d. 3 May 1769, ,,CHS, buried: 5 May 1769, Parish Church, Bowdon, CHS.
