Notes / Message
At the time of the 1901 census Matthew Henry was living in Sheffield and Mary Louise Herd Oates was living in Leeds. The two were living in Wigan repectively at 29 Scarisbrick Street and 64 Market Street when they married at the Parish Church on July 29th 1903. I am trying to establish when they moved to Wigan. All the children were born at 34 Market Street where they traded as Howard Oates, mantle warehouse. In the 1909 Kelly's Directory of Lancashire Matthew Henry was also trading at 20 Makinson Arcade as a dress and mantle stores. 34 Market Street later traded under the Herd name I am also searching for old photographs which might show these businesses.
