Edward Hainey

Edward HaineyEdward was the son of Thomas Hainey b.1858, a coal miner / general labourer, and Mary Ann Hainey* b.1860.

He first appeared on the Census in 1891 when he was living at 18 Chatsworth Street, Walkden with his parents and sisters Mary Jane b.1888 and Lily Ann b.1890.

In 1901 the family were still living at the same address and Edward was listed as working as a cotton spinner.

Edward married Beatrice Marsh b.1889 on 3 September 1910 at St Thomas's Church, Dixon Green, Farnworth. His address at that time was given as 7 Chatsworth Street, Walkden and he was employed as a collier.

By the 1911 Census Edward was living with his wife and mother in law at 35 Bentinck Street, Farnworth. He was still working as a coal miner hewer.

His name is on Farnworth War Memorial.

* The flexible spelling of the name 'Hainey' on official records made it difficult to identify a marriage for Edward's parents. Edward's own birth is registered as 'Hannay'.
