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!
