Hallworth family - three sons killed in First World War
« Reply #1 on: July 08, 2010, 03:23:56 PM »
I am trying to trace surviving relatives of John William Hallworth who was a soldier (and former postman) in the High Lane area. He was killed in action in 1917 and two of his brothers were also killed in the war, Herbert and Thomas.

A fourth brother, Harry Hallworth, was injured but not killed. Thomas, John and Herbert never married but Harry did. I believe there were also two sisters, Maggie and Mary.

Their parents were Thomas and Margaret Hannah Hallworth nee Jepson. They lived in Ivy Cottage in High Lane.

I know there are many Hallworths with connections to the Stockport, Hazel Grove, Poynton and High Lane areas but if anyone has any further information about this specific branch of the family I would be very grateful or them.
