Re Mort -Clegg- Bailey Lancashire 1900-

This may be a very long shot, however you
(we) never know.
Primarily I am tracing a specific line of Cleggs, Since my Clegg inquiries
seem to have run up against a wall -- I am now trying to diversify my research.
Briefly, I am interested in a Thomas and Emma
Clegg of Bury/Bolton/Radcliffe/Little Lever near Oldham Lancashire and their son Jim Clegg. Thomas and Emma would have been born around 1875 -- 1880,and Jim was born in June 1915 at 1 Broadoak Lane,Jericho, Bury in the house of an A. Bailey. Unfortunately Emma died giving birth to Jim (who subsequently
married an Ellen Brown) but I am very interested to know who this Bailey was. It is just possiblethat she was a sister in-law, in which case that could make Edwin Thomas's brother (of which I suspect he had several). Jim also had a elder sister called Hannah who married a Peter Mort of Little Lever near Bolton.I beleive they had several children. Her brother Jim also had several children by Ellen and served with the Navy at Portsmouth during the war. His occupation was "a carrier" , transport or haulage I assume, whilst his father Thomas was a coal miner. It is just possible that his wife Emma was in service at the Bailey household in Bury.
If any of this strikes a chord with any information you may have come across please drop me an e-mail at;
kind regards
Caroll Beattie
