  • Notes 
    • Baptised as son of Rebecca Bootle, singlewoman - in fact she was widowed in April 1852 and did not remarry until November 1856. In 1861 census as Peter Hesketh after mother married Isaac Hesketh.
      Peter's surname recorded as Booth on marriage certificate, with father named as Edward (Booth/Bootle). He did not sign, but made "his mark", so this can only have been a mistranscription by the vicar.
      Father-in-law William Baldwin living with family in 1891 census.
