{R45} William Audley or Aidley

  {R45} William Aidley or Audley was described as of Crowton a Brickmaker in the 1841 census and a farmer of Dodgley, Kingsley in the 1851, 1861, 1871 and 1881 census. So between 1841 and 1851 his place of residence moved a distance of 3500 metre. This relocation is shown below in a series of images from Google Earth (2010) and the Cheshire Tithe Maps (produced between 1836 and 1851.)

The map below from the Crowton Tithe Map (date unknown) shows William Aidley or Audley occupying land as a joint occupier with Thomas Yearsley. In the 1841 census Thomas Yearsley was living adjacent to William Aidley. The land they occupied was owned by George Wilbraham. It is speculated that Thomas Yearsley may have been the father of Hannah Aidley the wife of William Aidley, but this remains to be proven.
