I know this is a while before Wm's birth, but Thomas was certainly old enough to be married by this date.

Marriage: 12 Feb 1792 St Mary the Virgin, Prestwich, Lancashire, England
Thomas Whittaker - (X), of Chadderton in this Parish
Alice Roe - (X), of Chadderton in this Parish
Witness: Geo. Horrocks; Benjamin Lees
Married by Banns by: Hy. Housman
Source: LDS Film 2113205

Well possibly not the right person as there does appear to be a parallel family of Whittakers and Garlicks, but I'm clutching at the fact that Thomas appears to be known as Thomas Whittaker Garlick.

There is an Edward/Edmund Garlick who is a surgeon and of Chadderton, so there might be a posh line who left Wills, lol.

No, I still can't see how to order that Will, it doesn't appear on the Cheshire site. I think I will have to order the film from the LDS.

That's the last resort Merry, as films from the LDS are now £7 whereas a copy Will from Cheshire is only £3.50, lol!

A kind person has sent me a transcription of the Alice Bickerstaff marriage, which has no date or venue. I have just realised also, that if that is MY Thomas marrying Alice Bickerstaff, he would only have been 15 - not impossible of course but a bit unlikely, and only one child in 19 years of marriage???

Noooo, Thomas was b in the 1760s! It was William who was b 1799! (I had to write it down as I keep getting confused.) I liked the Alice Roe marriage better than the Bickerstaff one. There are a couple of Thomas/Alice Whittaker births between 1792 and 1801 but they could easily be someone else

Thomas was born 1765 and the marriage to Alice Bickerstaff was in 1780, so not likely to be the right one.

Yours looks quite promising EXCEPT...I passed over some Whittaker/Lees births which are definitely not anything to do with the Whittaker Garlick mob. I need to retrace my steps...

...and I need to find my brain as well, because the marriage you posted is Roe, not Lees, lol!

Doh! I thought it was 1808, which everyone knows is 15 years after 1799! lol

I must finish this (Christmas) scotch and go to bed, I think!!
