Biography

Thomas Yates was born in about 1805 in Atherton, Lancashire.

Thomas married Esther May or Mayho on 1 Jun 1823 at St Mary the Virgin Church in Deane, Lancashire. Both were living in the parish of Deane. Thomas was a husbandman, and Esther hadn't been married before. The witnesses were Abraham Boardman and Henry Turner.

Their son Richard was christened on 17 Apr 1825 at St Helens Parish Church. His father's occupation was given as labourer, and the family's address as Windle.

Their son Robert was born in about 1827. He was christened on 25 Apr 1827 at St Helens Parish Church. His father's occupation was given as labourer, and the family's address as Hardshaw. He was christened again on 1 Jul 1827 at St John the Baptist Church in Atherton, Lancashire. His father's occupation was given as labourer, and the family's address as St Helens. Baptism was a sacrament that was only ever supposed to be administered once according to Anglican dogma, but nevertheless it seems to have happened occasionally that a child was christened more than once.

Thomas and Esther's daughter Martha was born on 7 Nov 1829, and christened on 29 Nov 1829 at Tontine St Wesleyan Chapel in St Helens. Her family's address was given as Parish of Prescot.

Thomas and Esther's daughter Hannah was born on 16 Dec 1831. She was christened on 15 Jan 1832 at Tontine St Wesleyan Chapel in St Helens. Her family's address was given as St Helens, and this particular entry helpfully tells us that her mother is the daughter of William May.

Thomas and Esther's son William was born on 11 Nov 1834, and christened on 7 Dec 1834 at Tontine St Wesleyan Chapel in St Helens. His family's address was given as St Helens, and this entry states that his mother is the daughter of William and Esther Mayo.

Thomas and Esther's daughter Esther was born on 17 Dec 1836 in Windle, Lancashire. She was christened on 22 Jan 1837 at Tontine St Wesleyan Chapel in St Helens. Her family's address was given as St Helens, and this entry states that his mother is the daughter of William and Esther May.

Thomas and Esther's son Thomas was born in 1839 in Windle, Lancashire. His birth was registered in the third quarter of 1839, in Prescot district.

Thomas and Esther's son John was born in 1844 in Windle, Lancashire. His birth was registered in the second quarter of 1844, in Prescot district.

Thomas and Esther's son William was born in 1846 in Windle, Lancashire. His birth was registered in the third quarter of 1846, in Prescot district.

Thomas and Esther's son Isaac was born in about 1851 in Windle, Lancashire. His birth was registered in the first quarter of 1851, in Prescot district.

Research Notes

Esther's maiden surname is given consistently in their children's birth registrations as May. But no marriage was found for a Thomas Yates to an Esther May, however there was a marriage of a Thomas Yates to an Esther Mayho in Deane, which is under five miles from Atherton where Thomas was born. The Methodist baptism records for some of the children give Esther's maiden name variously as May or Mayo, providing useful confirmation that the marriage is the correct one.
