Outline Family Origins - Chester and Stalybridge, Cheshire

Updated 28-Jun-2013

This branch of the family seems to start from Boyle, Roscommon, Ireland. Thomas moved to Chester before 1855. It is just possible that Thomas was in England at the time of the 1851 Census. Around 1868 Thomas and family moved to Dukinfield, Stalybridge.

It now seems clear that other family members also moved to the same area. A Sarah Shekey who married John Paul in 1850 in Ashton Under Lyne is now thought to be the same Sarah that married Joseph Rhodes in Ashton Under Lyne in 1855. And despite the big differences in apparent age she may even be the same Sarah whose baptism was recorded in Boyle in 1821. Eventually Sarah appears in the 1900 US census with a reported age of 70 ... and her other children Elizabeth and Jane Rhodes also look to have families in the USA according to the latest searches.

There are Sheekey families still in the same general area today that are very likely the descendants of the original Thomas and Ann.
