BROADHURST of 1841 Cheshire

In 1841 Cheshire there are 522 BROADHURSTs listed in the England Census as found at FindMyPast.co.uk. 268 males and 284 females live in the 10 Registration Districts as shown in the chart below.  There may very well be more individuals that were perhaps not recorded in the Census or listed at FindMyPast. As an example, I know of one 96 year old William Broadhurst who shows up in the Ancestry.com records but not in FindMyPast.

  1. Great Site!! My Broadhurst family left England in 1842 to America on the ship St. Lawrence out of Liverpool. They were all textile mill workers and settled in Philadelphia, and later the youngest, George (my gggrandfather settled in Howard and Montgomery Co, MD. In the 1841 UK Census I found my family of John & Sarah B. with children,Samuel, Elizabeth, John and George in Stockport but no birthplace. I’ve searched all through Lancashire and Cheshire. I need some help finding where born for these kids–George in particular. Any help would be appreciated. GBO

  2. I am trying to find out the reason for my 2nd GGFathers Middle name of BROADHURST!.. He lived in Stockport until Immigrating to the USA In June of 1864.. He was 15 on the 1841 Census for Stockport with Mother Ellen Lee-Roylance and a Sister. He married in 1845 @ Manchester Cathedral and resided in Droylsden at the Time of his Marriage. Full Name: Joseph Broadhurst Roylance. I have been lead to belive that at that time Most English People were not Given Middle Names, I am in a quandry, because I am almost ready to belive he was not a Roylance at all, but could be a Broadhurst.. Any Suggestions.. I’m checking all the Broadhurst’s that I can in the hopes that I can find out where the Middle name came from…
