Just an update, my grandmothers maiden name from her birth parents was Hill and having spoken to my mother my grandmothers birth mother died during childbirth. My nan and grandad moved into their house in Hall Drive when it was new a few doors up from the Keen or Keene family, another large family in Hall Drive and at the time opposite the new houses was a number of farms which are now all gone. My uncle Raymond Whieldon (now passed away) used to help deliver milk during his childhood for one of the farms across the road. My mum can recall playing in Billy Nuns field off Caverswall Road and doing "doffers" (dares) doing brook jumping etc... Don't know if doffers is a Weston Coyney word but my wife from the Tunstall end of the City has never heard of it until she met me.

Hello great site, lived in Weston Coyney all my childhood life. Lived in The Close, my Grandparents on my mothers birth were the Whieldons from Hall Drive, a large family of 10 children.
My grandad was a miner Alfred Whieldon who passed away in his early 60s many years ago and my Nan Elizabeth May (nee Hopwood) passed away recently. My nan I believe was adopted by her mums sister and her husband (sorry don't know first names) but I am aware that my nan may have grown up in the Forsbrook area. Any info appreciated.

My Grandparents Walter John and Martha Harriet SALT lived at 35 Bright Street Meir for most of their married life. They were married at St Peters Church, Caverswall in 1889 and were buried in the samr grave there when they died in 1950 and 1949 respectively.
There 8 children were also baptised there and so Caverswall has a major place in our family history. Previously 5 generations of the family had lived in Cheadle before my GGrandfather John came to work in the Longton area and lived at Fir Trees Lightwood for many years. My Grandfather was born there. If there is anyone from this Salt line or has knowledge of them or could guide me to any local records that I could see I would be very pleased to hear from them...Great to see what a good local history site you have.

Hello,

I am researching my family tree and the name Cooper of Caverswall has cropped up. I was wondering if anyone has information that they are happy to share on Ann Cooper born c 1700, married James Pakeman on the 25th November 1729 at Caverswall. I believe that they had 3 children - one named James.

I would like to congratulate you on the site - it is a brilliant idea and research tool.

Thank you

I was also a 'Wireless Operator' in Cheadle, from 1942-1944. I would very much like to hear from anyone else who worked in Woodhead Hall during the war. I was later promoted to the de-coding room. I'm now 92 but have all my marbles! Please do write if you share memories of this secret work. Thanks, Joan Bronsdon (nee Mizen).

Admin reply: Hi Joan, I will contact you by e-mail next week. Thanks, Steve

I am researching the Sollom family and through them the Locketts from, mainly, Longton. I see that a John Lockett (b. Trentham abt 1818) lived at The Toll Gate House, Weston Road (1871 Census) together with wife Lydia (b. Caverswall abt 1821) daughter Eliza Moore (b. Longton abt1843) son-in-law Joseph Moore (b. Stone abt 1841) and grand-daughter Elizabeth Moore (b. Longton abt 1869).

If anyone has information on any member of this family I would be pleased to hear from them.
