Notes for Henry BODDINGTON

See the autobiographical 'Record of the life of HENRY BODDINGTON, born 1813, died 1886'.

In his memoir, Revd Edgar BODDINGTON claims that his father, Henry BODDINGTON, had been expected to inherit his father's farm and mill at Cuddington, and that the fact that he didn't was considered by the family to be a great injustice. [322]

This is surprising because Henry was the second son, and one might have expected the inheritance to go to the first son. It was also of great good fortune because Henry went on to develop and eventually own the brewery at Strangeways, Manchester, and make the family fortune, something that would never have happened at the old mill at Cuddington!

Notes for Elizabeth NANSON

Residence: 1851 in Ecclesall Bierlow, Yorkshire. Looks like a case of the Governess of the first wife's children becoming the second wife! On marriage he was 60 and she was 37 with his youngest child then 10 or 11. [Webmaster]
