Biography

Flag of Lancashire (adopted 2008)
Isaac Briggs was born in Prestwich, Lancashire, England.

Isaac Briggs was born in 1852 in Prestwich, Lancashire, England, child of Isaac Briggs and Susannah Ramsbottom. [1] [2]

He was baptised on 18 July 1852 at St Mary's church, Prestwich. The family were living at Kirkhams. [3]

His mother died and his father remarried.

In 1861 he was in Prestwich with his parents and 6 siblings. [2]

In 1871 he was with his parents in Prestwich. He was a bricklayer. [4]

He married Frances Annie Dubberley. Their marriage was registered in the Jan-Feb-Mar quarter of 1881 in Salford, Lancashire. [5]

In 1881 the couple lived at 249 Chatham Street, Salford.[6]

In 1891 he was with his wife and 5 children in Broughton, Lancashire. By 1891 the family had four daughters Mabel A.; Ethel , Eunice, and Maud, and one son, Reginald. They lived at 34 Grosvenor Street. All the children had been born in Salford. [7]

Isaac and Annie baptized four of their children on the same day, 12 May 1900, at St. Alban, Cheetwood.

Sydney (born 29 April 1900)
Annie Barton (26 January 1895)
Reginald (28 August 1890)
Maud (born 19 Sept 1888)

The family was living at 120 Pemberton street and Isaac was a bricklayer. [8]

In 1901 the family was still at Pemberton Street. Mabel is not on the record at the address. Seventeen year old Ethel was working as a Restaurant Waitress and Eunice as a cap presser. Other children present are Maud, Reginald, Annie, Eleanor C. and Sydney.[9]

In 1911 a jobbing bricklayer, he was widowed living at 49 Hewitt Street, Cheetham, North Manchester, Lancashire.[10]

Research Notes

It is curious that Eleanor C, included in the 1901 Census and placed between Annie and Sydney in age, was not baptized.
