Other marriages:
GROGAN, William

Mary Ann's mother, Margaret, died in November 1880 at the very young age of 23 years (during Childbirth?). Two years old Mary Ann was with her father in Oswaldtwistle when the 1881 Census was taken. In 1891, she is living with another family in Cherry Street, Blackburn and described as adopted.

It looks as though Mary Ann and William Grogan 'had to get married'. They married towards the end of 1900 and their son Stephen was born in January 1901. In March 1901, when the Census was taken, they were living with William's father in Hutchinson Street, which was in the Grimshaw Park district of Blackburn. The marriage was not a success and Mary Ann left William Grogan some time before 1906, when it is thought that her next child, Thomas, was fathered by William Jackson. Sadly, Thomas died within a few months. DNA testing has proven that William Jackson was definitely the father of her next child, who was baptised Thurston Jackson Grogan. It seems certain therefore that all of her subsequent children were with William Jackson.

Officially (ie Birth Registration and Baptism) all of the children had the surname Grogan.

When the 1911 Census was taken Mary Ann is living with William Jackson in Back Friday Street (close to Hutchinson Street), although she is described as a married Boarder, William as Head of the family and Single, and the two living children, Stephen and Thurston, as Sons of the Head. Mary Ann's father William is also Boarding at that address.

In 1911, William Grogan was living in a Registered Common Boarding House, also in the Grimshaw Park area, he declares that he is married (11 years) and, truthfully, says he has one child still living.

By the time the 1939 Register was compiled, Mary Ann and William Jackson are both shown as married but no marriage record has been found. The most likely reason for this is that Mary Ann and William Grogan did not divorce.

In 1939, William Grogan was still living in a lodging house in the Grimshaw Park and still stating that he was married.

They had the following children.

  M i
Thomas GROGAN-G0229 was born 1 about Feb 1906 in Blackburn, Lancashire. He died about Aug 1906 in Blackburn, Lancashire.

Although her birth was registered as Mary Ann Jackson GROGAN, she was baptised as Mary Ann GROGAN. No father's name was recorded in the Baptism Register and the Vicar noted that Mary Ann was married but the child was illegitimate.
  M iv John GROGAN-G0232 was born on 18 Feb 1912. He died on 21 Nov 1974.
  F v Margaret Jackson GROGAN-G0233.

Albert also used the middle name of Jackson.
