    Our Family History - Research on the Ancestry of Martha Clare (1841-1903)
    Our Family History - Research on the Ancestry of Martha Clare (1841-1903)
    Martha CLARE #70 was my mother's maternal grandmother. She married Thomas SUTCLIFFE #69 at Bradford in 1868. They had two children, Annie #71, who married William BALL #78, and Arthur #304, who died in childhood. Annie and William were my motherís parents.

    Martha's farther, James CLARE seems to have been an interesting character. He was married twice. His first wife Elizabeth, Martha's mother, died at the young age of 28. Within a matter of weeks James had married Mary TWISS, the daughter of his next-door neighbour. At the time Mary had two children of her own, apparently both illegitimate. This very quick remarriage suggests that James and Mary were on extremely friendly terms even before Elizabeth's untimely death. James worked for much of his life as a whitesmith, meaning that he worked with metals such as tin and pewter. Later in life we believe that he owned and ran a pub in the centre of Warrington (possibly called the Wheatsheaf), so had apparently by then become reasonably affluent.

    This research traces Martha's parentage.
