Profile

Full name George Haworth
name notes Haworth is often mistaken as Howarth.
Born 17 October 1864 in Accrington, Lancashire [registered in Haslingden, December 1864].

Census Notes

Although there are many George Haworth's in Lancashire, only one was the correct age in Accrington. The correct George is also confirmed by genealogists.

According to the 1871 census, George is the youngest of eight children to George and Mary. They live in Adelaide Street in Accrington. His father is a block printer.

According to the 1881 census, George is the youngest of five children still living with their parents at 10 Adelaide Street. George is a labourer at the printworks, where his father is a printer also. To be noted, there is another sixteen year-old Accrington-born George Haworth living at Love Clough in Higher Booths, south of Accrington.  He is boarding with his widowed father, George, and two of his brothers the family house of Ann Pickup and her family.  Coincidentally, this George is also a labourer at the printworks. He was, however, only recorded as a five year-old in the 1871 census return, and in 1891, recorded as being born in Bacup.

According to the 1891 census, George is married to Martha is a licensed victualler at The Boars Head at 51 Burnley Road, Accrington. He has four children, George, Beatrice, Mary and six month-old Henry.

According to the 1901 census, George and his family (his wife and three children) are now living at The Royal, at 70 Victoria Street in Blackburn.

According to the 1911 census, George, still a victualler and still married, living at 141 Duckworth Street in Darwen with two of their children. The census reveals that they had five children, and two had died.

Married to Martha Alice Halstead [registered in Haslingden, December 1886]. Not Martha Lonsdale [registered in Haslingden, March 1887]. Yes, a George Haworth married a Martha at the end of 1886 in Haslingden area, and another George Haworth married an entirely different Martha at the beginning of 1887. The 1901 census confirms George's wife name as Martha Alice.
Died 5 January 1943 in Allerton, Bradford, West Yorkshire, aged 78 years 80 days [registered in Bradford, March 1943].
