Francis Worth

Siddington Church

Born in Siddington in 1826, the son of John Worth and Esther Buckley, Francis Worth married Sophia Salthouse in 1865 at Manchester Cathedral, he was about 14 years older than her and signed the register with his mark. 

I have wondered why they married at Manchester Cathedral and not at St Mary's in Nether Alderley (traditionally they would have married at the bride's church), did they want a quiet wedding, perhaps unknown to their families as they used an address of convenience (3 Boden Street, Ardwick) for the Banns? Or was Francis working there as a porter at the time? Francis' parents were married at Manchester Cathedral so perhaps they just wanted to continue a family tradition?

Within a few years of their marriage they were living in one of the lodges in Nether Alderley; Francis was an agricultural labourer whilst Sophia was a laundress. They had eleven children (that I know of), all of whom survived childhood.
