New Street

George Albert Rowbottom is my first cousin, twice removed and son of Tom Rowbottom.

George was born in 1897 in Sheffield and died in 1976 in Lancashire. In 1901, he was living in Parkgate and in 1911, he was living in Greasbrough. This is all I know about George, except for his marriage detailed below.

I have so far been unable to find a birth or a death date for George’s wife, Annis; I suspect that the spelling of her given name perhaps varied. To my knowledge, George and Annis issued only one child, called Edna, in 1927.
