To help find William BROADHURST, the father of John BROADHURST, I compiled a list of all William BROADHURSTs living in Cheshire that were recorded in the 1841 England Census (Ancestry.com). In total 37 Williams were listed (to include “Wm”) in 31 different households. The household distribution by registration district is: Macclesfield 10, Congleton 7, Stockport 5, Altrincham 4, Nantwich 2 and Ashton under Lyne, Runcorn and Stockton all with 1 household each.
For a number of reasons I believe “my” William ancestor is the family grouping living in Sandbach in the charts below (Household ID4).
The first chart below is a list of Williams with data and their household ID number. The second chart shows all household memebers of each William family grouping. Click on the images below to view larger.
As always, comments are welcome. Regards, Dick Broadhurst firstname.lastname@example.org
