Strangeway Families in the Manchester Area

This family line was not linked to any other Strangeway families; so was given its own page. However new information suggests a solution to this particular piece of the family history puzzle.

Update 5-Jan-2011 - A marriage record gives the name of William George’s father as Matthew; which would link this branch of the tree to the Nottingham and Preston families. More research needed...

Update 6-Jan-2011 - New info from Lancashire BMD and an 1871 Census entry transcribed as Strangsway points to Matthew and Elizabeth (nee Gibson) being the parents of William George - see Preston Families - and so linking these families back to the same origins as the Leeds Families.

Update 19-Aug-2015 - The gradual increase in the available data means that a revised family tree is in order ...

As with all these family trees there are likely to be errors and gaps - since few (no?) family trees are ever complete or provide the fully detailed story of something as complex as a family’s history . And it is impossible to wait until all the details are confirmed before publishing what fragments are known about a family tree - since family trees will always have gaps. All the information listed here has been obtained from publicly available sources. Sources put online by both official outlets and through the efforts of amateur researchers. Also note that many of the BMD entries only refer to the Quarter and the Registration District where the event was registered - since these are a main source of the public records.

The latest version of all the family trees is available online at our Webtrees site. Please get in touch with any corrections so that we can be as complete and accurate as possible.
