Baxendale History

The Baxendale family is on the fringe of my research - Mary Braidwood married Richard Baxendale - but there seems to have been a lot of contact maintained between the two families.

Going back to the Braidwood family, John Braidwood married Mary McKinsey (nee Hesketh) on 20 Jul 1846 in Liverpool. John Braidwood was a butcher and, after his death, Mary continued to run the business. By 1871, the daughter, Mary Braidwood, had married Richard Baxendale who came from Fleetwood. Richard Baxendale was also working as a butcher in 1846 so perhaps that is how the families knew each other?  Mary's sister, Janet Braidwood, had married William Salthouse and they were both living with the widowed mother.

Many years later, probably around 1907-10, when Janet and William had moved to Green Lane in Ditton, Widnes, their youngest daughter, also called Janet, wrote a postcard to a member of the Baxendale family who was living in Walton Lane, Liverpool. We are not sure who was the intended recipient as the pencil writing is so faint. 

Richard Baxendale may have been a butcher in 1861 but after that he is listed in the census records as being a warehouseman. Similarly, in 1871, William Salthouse was a policeman but, afterwards, he is recorded as being a warehouseman in a leather and hide warehouse which, we think, was owned by another Salthouse, Thomas Carter Salthouse. I wonder if there is a connection here? Richard and Mary's sons became bookkeepers and accountants.
