The marriage of James Stanley and Elizabeth Highland
Cross Keys

James STANLEY married Elizabeth HIGHLAND at Manchester Cathedral on 30 June 1850. They were both living a few doors away from each other on Jersey Street in Ancoats, he at 97 and she at 93.

The street still exists today and runs parallel to the Rochdale Canal, just off Great Ancoats Street. Number 97 was in fact the Cross Keys pub pictured opposite, and was also the address his father, Thomas, gave at his second marriage.

James could write and was a 23 year old bachelor who worked as a brewer. His father was Thomas STANLEY, a hatter. Elizabeth was also 23 years old and a spinster. She could not sign her name and gave no occupation. Her father was also called Thomas and also worked as a hatter. The witnesses were John NUTTALL and Elizabeth RILEY.
