The marriage of Jonathan Walker and Elizabeth Stanley (formerly Hiland)

Elizabeth married Jonathan Walker at St John the Evangelist Church in Hurst, Ashton-under-Lyne on 2 October 1866. She was a 39 year old widow living in Hurst Brook and gave her father's name as Thomas Hiland who worked as a hatter, Jonathan was a 38 year widower living at Botany, Hurst. This is a reference to a number of streets in the area, notably Botany Lane. He was working as a miner, presumably at one of the three pits at Broad Oak. His father was Aaron Walker who was a labourer and the witnesses were James Binns and Martha Stead. None of them could sign their names.
