Major Solloway, b. 1771 England to Cleveland, OH 1831

  of 2633

Researching Solloway / Soloway/ Salaway / Sallaway families in England. These spellings, seem to have been somewhat interchangable. Other spellings such as Solway, Salway and Salwey have been sprinkled in as well.

Two or three brothers arrived in the US about 1833 and settle in the Euclid area of Cuyahoga Co. in Ohio. This area is now a part of Cleveland.

The brothers were the sons of Major Solloway b. 1771 in Gloucestershire, (son of Johnson Solloway and Sarah Smith). This Major Solloway died between 1841 and 1845 at Roel/ Rowell, Gloucestershire, and was married on 29 Jun 1791 at Quinton, Gloucestershire to Mary Smith who was b. abt 1771 in Lark Stoke, Gloucestershire.

Eleven children of Major and Mary (Smith) Solloway were:
Major Solloway Jr., 1790-1854 m. 1822 Hannah Reed m2. Sally/Sarah
William Solloway 1791-1858
Mary Solloway 1796-1809
Thomas Solloway 1798-1884 m. Ann Rimmell
Samuel Solloway 1800-1872 m Harriot
John Solloway 1802-1846
George Solloway 1804-1865
Charles Solloway 1805-1878
Daniel P Solloway 1809-1831 m. Ann Waite m2 Ann Holloway
Elizabeth Solloway 1811-1888 m. William Coldicott
Mary Ann Solloway 1815-1839 m. William Lane

Major, John and Daniel P. are the brothers who emigrated to the US. Mary Ann and her husband William Lane emigrated to New Zealand. It is presumed that the remaining siblings lived their lives in England.

Hoping to make connections with any and all descendants. I have assembled family trees for most of the individuals who remained in England, based primarily on census research. Would like to discover more about the lives of the men who emigrated to the US, and the lives of their offspring.

Would be happy to share information gathered regarding the English roots of this family.
