Bottomley, William Rothwell (b1846)


William was born in the spring of 1846 at Halifax, Yorkshire, to mother Sarah A Bottomley, nee Townend.

Census returns identify the following occupations for William after he left the ministry.

  • 1881 master boiler & pipe coverer & mill furnisher employing 12 boys
  • 1891 insurance agent
  • 1901 tube merchant – in Scotland

He married Frances Anne Goodie Shaw (b1857) in early 1874 in the Chorlton Registration District, Lancashire.

I have not been able to identify a death record online. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
