The registers for St Modwen record a marriage between Jacob Thornilow and Elizabeth Wood in 1697, plus the baptism of their daughters Elizabeth and Jana (Jane?) in 1698 and 1705 - the later entry is under the name Thorninglow. My main person of interest is Katherine Thorninglow who married John Hardy at St Modwen in 1743. According to the Marriage Bond she was a 32 years old spinster at the time of her marriage. She subsequently moved to live with a daughter at Draycott In The Clay, where she died in 1798. Where did she come from, and who were her parents? The St Modwen registers have a few Thorninglow baptisms in the 1740's, but no entries 1710-1720's for any of the named fathers. Jacob also vanishes after 1705. Edited to add that a search on an Isaac born anywhere in Britain produced zero matches.
