  • Notes 
    • From the IGI there is a record of a John Redshaw Christening on 4th October 1795 at Armley, Yorkshire. This John was the son of John Redshaw and Hannah. IGI also records a record of a marriage on 7th April 1790 at Saint Peter, Leeds, Yorkshire between John Redshaw and Hannah Davison. Are these the parents of our John? The consensus of opinion is yes!

      Update 7/12/11: NO! Thanks to Hugh Smith who notes:

      You list the John Redshaw who married Hannah Dunwell at Leeds on 13Mar1815 as having been born in Armley abt. 1796, to parents John Redshaw & Hannah Davison. This is incorrect. You have the wrong man, and the wrong parents.

      The 1851, 1861 and 1871 censuses for this family clearly state that the John Redshaw who married Hannah Dunwell was born in Wheatley, Halifax, not Armley.

      FamilySearch batch C085961 lists the bapt. of John Redshaw, son of Frank & Hannah Redshaw, at South Parade Wesleyan Chapel, Halifax, on 8Apr1794. An image of the register entry (RG4/Piece 3011/Folio 90) can be seen on The Genealogist's 'BMD Registers' site, and it shows that the family lived in Wheatley in the parish of Halifax. This is the John Redshaw who married Hannah Dunwell.

      Both Cookster and Redders also have this wrong, as do the owners of several trees on Ancestry. It seems that they all must have missed this non-conformist baptism, or failed to link it with the census entries.

      Incidentally, there were two John Redshaws bapt in Armley in 1795 - the illegit. son of Martha Redshaw on 10May1895 and the son of John & Hannah (Davison) Redshaw on 4Oct1795. Just to confuse the situation, these two John Redshaw children were cousins, since Martha was John's sister. One of them married Mary Othick at Leeds on 22Sep1816, and the other married Mary Rushforth at Leeds on 24May1825. But which one is which is not clear.


      From the 1841 Census (HO107 Piece 1344_14 Folio 6 Page 4) John, 45, Linen Weaver, was with his wife Hannah, 45, in Holbeck, Leeds, Yorkshire. With them were their children Hannah, 15, William, 15, Engine Tenter, John, 13, James, 11, Jonathan, 9, and Jane 7.

      From the 1851 Census (HO107 Piece 2317 Folio 186 Page 20) John, 57, a Hand Loom Weaver/Canvass from Halifax, Yorkshire, was with his wife Hannah, 58, from Wortley, Yorkshire. They were living at 8 Wood Street, Holbeck, Leeds, Yorkshire, England. With them were their children John, widower, 23, a Mechanic (Borer) from Leeds, Yorkshire, Jonathan, 19, a Mechanic (Fitter) from Leeds, Yorkshire, and Jane, 17, a Milliner from Leeds, Yorkshire.

      From the 1861 Census (RG9 Piece 3364 Folio 35 Page 13) John, 67, a Linen Weaver born Wheatley, Yorkshire, was with his wife Hannah, 69, born Wortley, Yorkshire. They were living at 4 Vevers Yard, Holbeck, Leeds, Yorkshire.

      From the 1871 Census (RG10 Piece 4520 Folio 94 Page 13) John, 77, widower, No Employment from Wheatley, Yorkshire, was with his son-in-law John Tring, 56, Labourer in Iron Works from Northampton, and his daughter Hannah, 50, from Leeds. Also present were his grandchildren Mary A, 33, unemployed born Leeds, George, 11 (actually 19), Machine Fitter at Works, Sarah E, 17, Mill Hand (Flax), and Mary A, Scholar, all born Holbeck, Yorkshire.
