I work in Manchester and after doing some research found out I have relatives who used to live in Heaton Norris, on Brunswick St and Chruch St going way back. Mary Gray (1805-1879) was the wife of Robert Gray and lived on Brunswick St, no 49 then 55. They had several children including Jane Gray (b1831) who married Edward Bowes (b1828, and who had Thomas Bowes (1863). Mary also had George Gray, c1838, Mary Gray c1839, and Thomas Gray (1841-1890). Thomas was my great great grandfather, and Married Elizabeth Thompson (nee Bailey) (b1844). They had 2 boys, George Gray (b1865) and William Thompson Gray (1873-1944). George moved to Cheadle and had 2 children, whilst William Thomson Gray stayed in Heaton Norris and married Eliza Gaskell (1899 -1940). They lived 3 Church St and had 2 boys - Alan Gaskell Gray (1899 -1940) and William Eric Gray (1902-1969) both born in Heaton Norris before they and their parents moved to Blackpool.
Its going back along time I know but I would love to hear from anyone who has any family connection or memories connected with my past relatives of Heaton Norris.
