Biography

Henry Etherington was born in 1843 in Halifax, Yorkshire, England to Robert Etherington and Mary (Brown) Etherington. His birth was registered in Halifax in the first quarter of the year, with mother's maiden name Brown.[1]

In 1851 Henry Etherington (age 8) lived at Dean Clough in Halifax with his father Robert (44, Carpet Weaver), mother Mary (42), and eight siblings: Mary (21), John (19, Carpet Weaver), Sarah (17), Robert (15, Carpet Weaver), William (13, Carpet Weaver), Margaret (11), Thomas (4), and Alfred (0).[2]

In 1861 Henry Etherington (age 18, Carpet Weaver) lived at Vulcan Street in Dewsbury, Yorkshire with his father Robert (54, Carpet Weaver), mother Mary (51), sister Mary (30), and four brothers: Robert (24, Carpet Weaver), William (22, Carpet Weaver), Thomas (12), and Alfred (10), as well as three lodgers: John Brown (20, Carpet Weaver), Will Magers (21, Joiner), and Margaret Magers (20).[3]

Henry (H)etherington, son of Robert (H)etherington, married Ann Hill, daughter of George Hill, on 17 August 1868 at St Philip, Leeds.[4]The marriage was registered in Leeds in the third quarter of the year.[5]

Henry and Ann had five children, but only two daughters lived to adulthood: Louisa (Etherington) Hirst (1870-1961), Alfred Etherington (1872-1874), Jemima Etherington (1874-aft.1891), John Etherington (1876-1877), and Sarah Ann Etherington (1878-1878).

In 1871 Henry Etherington (age 29, Carpet Weaver) lived in Dewsbury with his wife Ann (24), daughter Lousia (1), and boarder (/brother-in-law) George Hill (16, Cloth Cutter).[6]

Henry's wife Ann Etherington passed away in 1879.

In 1881 Henry Etherington (age 39, Carpet Weaver) and his two daughters - Louise (11, Scholar) and Jemima (6, Scholar) - were lodgers at Back Granville Street in Dewsbury in the household of John Corrison.[7]

Possible match: Henry Etherington passed away in 1889, aged 40 years. His death was registered in Dewsbury in the first quarter of the year.[8] [Although the age at death isn't quite right, this is most likely the correct Henry - perhaps his actual age of about 46 was mistranscribed as 40, or perhaps whoever registered his death did not know his exact age and made a guess.]
