I'm trying to make a connection to the following family:
William ROBINSON married Ellen CASHEN in Lancashire England, and had the following son:
Alfred ROBINSON b. August 13, 1852, Little Bolton, Bolton, Lancashire, England.
(this I've obtained from my gr-gr-grandfather's birth certificate, including Wm ROBINSON's occupation as Letter Press Printer)
Also, sent to me was the following:
Bolton Directory of 1874, which lists residents and their work when applicable. I note that there is a William Robinson, general printer and publisher of the Bolton Advertiser, newspaper, 3a Crown Street, Bolton.
**I know my gr-gr-grandFather, Alfred Robinson migrated to Ontario Canada in 1874 and he too was a Printer and Publisher in Ontario...
I found the following information on the LDS site that is very possibly a connection (CASHEN being the link):
William ROBINSON b. Sept 19, 1814: St George Chapel, Douglas, ISLE OF MAN, England
father: John ROBINSON, mother: Jane CANNELL
Wm ROBINSON married Nov 4, 1845, Bradden, Douglas, ISLE OF MAN, England to:
Ellen CASHEN b. 1823, Liverpool, Lancashire, England
father: Philip CASHEN, mother: Catherine LAWTON
They had a son:
William Philip ROBINSON b. Aug 8, 1848, Douglas, ISLE OF MAN, England
Anyways, I figure I'd post my findings, incase anybody recognizes this group.
