The Family of Isaac Ford 1800-1861
The Family of Isaac Ford are easily assembled because all of the names are those mentioned on the fly-leaf of the Family Bible. In tree form:
|Isaac Ford 1800-1861=Mary Hancock 1802-1880|
Isaac was born in 1800 in Lawton parish, the son of Isaac and Mary Ford. The parish boundary is just a few hundred yards from Mow Cop, so being born over the border may not be particularly significant. However, there is likely to be a family connection with Cheshire as Isaac's father (also Isaac) was buried at Astbury.
Isaac Ford was a fairly common name in the area in the late 18th and early 19th Century - in Parish Recods, Census data and on tombstones. At least three lived at the same time on the flanks of Mow Cop!
