WHITAKER Robert Catlow Bottom Briercliffe p.Whalley Yeoman Aug 1836.

Taken from a book at Rochdale that indexed Lancashire and Cheshire Wills, I think this should be available from the LRO at Preston.

Hi there! Im looking for my ancestors, there's is a Whitaker in my Family tree, I'm from Argentina, so the story of this Whitaker starts when Mary married with my swiss great-grandfather having their firts son in 1918 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and i wish to trace her family...all i know is that her father and brothers where Engineers who came to Argentina to work in railways companies... so i guess if Mary was born in 1885-1900 aprox... her father/mother where born around 1858-1875.....and all i have is songbooks and things from Lancanshire who belonged to Mary Whitaker (she could born in Argentina, but there's no records).

Will be nice to can find some Engineers records or railways employees who were sent to work to Argentina.... also any record from departures from Southampton/Liverpool/London to Buenos Aires.

Also I know that one of her brother was Archeologist (deceased in amazonia, brasil) and her other brother and father returned to Britain (don't know if before or after WWI).

Thanks in advance for any help!!!!

i'm afraid i need a little bit of help!!! pleasee!, after looking all the records... i found my family...
im descendant of William Whitaker who is seems born in 1838 aprox because 39 years later he was at the baptism of my great-great-grandmother Mary Jane Whitaker in 1877 in Argentina.

his wife.... Eliza Platt (40 year old in 1977)

First Son called John William (born in 1860 aprox, he was 9 in the census of '69)
1st daughter Isabel Ana (Elizabeth Ann, had 7 years in the 1869 census)
2nd Son ..Asten (aprox birth date 1864)
-----from here i found the baptism records in Argentina for the following family ---
2nd Daughter Alice ( born 1969)
a 3rd son, George (born in 1872)
a 3rd daughter (my relative) Mary Jane (born in 23/06/1877)


we don't know yet anything about Astin/Asten/Austin... where he had born we just know that he was 5 year old in the Census of 1869 in Argentina. but not just Astin, we want to know if its possible where had they born... (its clear that 2 girls and George had born in Argentina, cause we dont have the baptism of Elizabet Ann, Astin and his elder brother John William)...so could be that they came into Argentina around the years 1864 and 1969!!? how can i see there's any record?

and if they returned to England... and also... more exciting... will be know as much as possible from which Whitaker branch we come from in England... i just have a songbook from Lancashire...

Thanks for read,

Cheers.

Hi, welcome to the site. What is the title of the songbook? Is it a local Lancashire one?
