  • Notes 
    • Eliza Jane was born in Wales but baptised in Macclesfield. She worked in the silk mill until her marriage to John Dobson in 1879. A serious rift with sister Kate occurred when it seems Eliza returned to her house early from work to find Kate in bed with her husband! It is probable that Eliza's husband was father to the twins Kate subsequently gave birth to - in Macclesfield workhouse. They died shortly after birth.
