  • Notes 
    • INteresting that Rev. Richard was born and baptised in Hornby in 1827, parents Richard and Margaret, but he seems to be the only child. At that same time in Hornby, a James Thistlethwaite, wife Elizabeth had Hannah, Adam. Ellen, Ann, Elizabeth, John, Mary, James. Possibly related?

      ---------------------------

      Worked for "Church of the Holy Trinity" - Preston, Lancashire, England -[Tombstone] says Priest
      [Balance Sheet] says "Holy Trinity Church"


      Quotes from [Balance Sheet] to distribute his last effects:

      "Amount of Policy Assurance in the Clergy Mutual Assurance Society No.13304"
      "Amount of Policy Assurance in the London Assurance Society and BonusesNo. 6620"
      I think there was also income from his marriage settlement.

      Will also mentions "Bishop Fraser's superannuation fund"

      [Balance Sheet] mentions T.R. Toms fee for tuning the piano - a musician?

      ------------------------------

      Addresses:

      1859 - William B's birth cert.
      Vicarage at Farnworth as place of birth so perhaps they resided therewith in-laws

      1860- Catherine's birth certificate
      Queen St., Lytham, Fylde

      1864 Margaret's birth certificate
      Queen St., Lytham, Fylde

      1866 - Richard Thomas Thistlethwaite's birth cert.
      Common Bispham, Poulton-le-Fylde

      1876 - Slater's City Directory
      37 Fishgate Hill
      Preston

      1884 - Catherine's marriage certificate
      1890 - Slater's
      14 Winckley Sq.
      Preston (Vicarage)

      -------------------------------

      picture of RTW's grave was made by a photographer from Wiveliscombe, hisdeath certificate says he died in Wellington, and I think he is buried atSt. Michael's in Milverton, from an online burial index I found. Theseare all villages in Somerset very close to one another.
