[HEWT641] Peter Hewitt (born 1767, son of Peter), cordwainer, married (at Manchester, Sts. Mary, Denys & George, 27th April 1795) [HAND642] Ann Handford (see HANDFORD above), witnessed by John Hanson. They had three children, as follows, (mother shown as Nancy):
Mary (born at Cross Street, Ashton-upon-Mersey, 15th February 1796, baptised at Altrincham, Hale & Shaws Lane Presbyterian Chapel, 6th March 1796);
[HEWT651] John (born at Cross Street, Ashton-upon-Mersey, 19th January 1799, baptised at Altrincham, Hale & Shaws Lane Presbyterian Chapel, 10th February 1799), married Mary Darbyshire, see later;
Samuel (born at Cross Street, Ashton-upon-Mersey, 7th November 1801, baptised at Altrincham, Hale & Shaws Lane Presbyterian Chapel, 27th January 1802).
Peter died age 64 (buried at Bowdon, 17th July 1831 NBI). Nancy [Ann] possibly died age 71 (buried at Bowdon, 1st November 1835 NBI).
[HEWT651] John Hewitt (born 1799, son of Peter), cordwainer, married 1. (at Manchester, Sts. Mary, Denys & George, 1st November 1818) [ADSH652] Mary Adshead, witnessed by Joseph Adshead. Mary was possibly (without proof) illegitimate daughter of Betty Adshead, born at "Kennerdy" [possibly Kenworthy?] (25th May 1800), baptised at Northenden (26th June 1800). They had at least five children, as follows:
William Thomas (born at Churton, c.1820), remained unmarried;
Nancy (baptised at Ashton-upon-Mersey, 23rd January 1820 IGI);
Peter (born September 1821), died (age 2 weeks), buried at Bowdon (30th September 1821 NBI);
[HEWT661] John (born at Sale, baptised at Ashton-upon-Mersey, 2nd January 1831), lived with Eliza Darbyshire, see later;
Peter (born at Sale, baptised at Ashton-on-Mersey, 22nd March 1835), married 1. Margaret Goulden nee Higson; then 2. Sarah Goulden. At the 1891 Census, the family were living at 48 Wardle Road, Sale, and living with them was Peter's widowed brother [HEWT661] John Hewitt.
Afterwards, [HEWT651] John Hewitt (shoe maker) married 2. (at Manchester, St John, 25th February 1836) [DARB652] Mary Darbyshire (born 1796, see DARBYSHIRE), witnessed by T. Murray and Richd Greatrix. The marriage entry shows Mary Darbyshire (widow), but as her mother was Elizabeth Darbyshire (see 1851 Census below), it is possible she was a widow but used her maiden name for her second marriage.
John and and his 2nd wife Mary were at Sale (1841 Census), Cross Street, Sale (1851 Census) and 34 Bradshaw Street, Hulme (1861 Census). At the 1851 Census, living with them was Mary's mother [BROH642] Elizabeth Darbyshire (formerly Brownhill). John died age 67 (buried at Bowdon, 16th March 1865 NBI). Mary died age 82 (buried at Bowdon, 21st September 1878 NBI).
[HEWT661] John Hewitt (born 1831, son of John), had a liaison with his step-mother's niece [DARB652] Eliza Derbyshire (see DARBYSHIRE). It seems likely Eliza had a child by him (April 1853) though the child was registered and baptised as being a child of Samuel Hampson, whom Eliza had married eight months previously. It seems likely Samuel was not aware she was pregnant when they married, and subsequently abandoned her. Eliza then went to live with John Hewitt. As she was already married to Samuel Hampson she was not free the marry, and John and Eliza simply lived together as husband and wife. Altogether John Hewitt and Eliza had three children, as follows:
[HAMP672] Mary "Hampson" (born at Cheadle Moseley, 26th April 1853, baptised at Cheadle, 19th February 1854), child registered and baptised as being the child of Samuel Hampson. Mary "Hewitt" married Alfred Vose, see later;
Annie (born at Sutton, 10th August 1858), probably never married;
Thomas (born at Sutton, 1861), married Margaret Wilson.
The family lived variously at Manor Hill Sutton (1858), Manor Street Sutton (1861), Whiston (1871), 7 West View, Huyton (1881), where John was variously a joiner or carpenter. Eliza died (age 54) of pneumonia at West View, Huyton Quarry (19th January 1883, and buried at Huyton, 23rd January 1883). At the 1891 Census he was living with his brother Peter at Sale (mentioned earlier), and at the 1901 census with his son Thomas. John died (age 72) of senile decay at his son Thomas' house, 308 Crow Lane West, Newton-in-Makerfield (24th July 1903, and buried at Huyton, 27th July 1903).
[HAMP672] Mary "Hewitt" (born 1853, presumed son of John) married (at Whiston, 15th November 1876) [VOSE671] Alfred Vose (born 1854), a tool maker. When their [only] child Eliza Vose was born in 1880, the motherís maiden name was again given as Hewitt (see VOSE).
