William JACKSON [Parents] was born 1 on 12 Apr 1875 in Blackburn, Lancashire. He was christened on 06 Jun 1875 in the church of St Mary the Virgin in Blackburn. He died 2 in Nov 1956 in Blackburn, Lancashire. He was buried on 07 Nov 1956 in Blackburn Cemetery, Lancashire. William was in a common law marriage with Mary Ann HOGG.

William was counted in a census 3 on 03 Apr 1881 in 6 Oxford Street In Blackburn, Lancashire. He was counted in a census 4 on 05 Apr 1891 in 42 Oxford Street In Blackburn, Lancashire. He was counted in a census 5 on 31 Mar 1901 in 42 Oxford Street In Blackburn, Lancashire. He was counted in a census on 02 Apr 1911 in 10 Back Friday St, Blackburn, Lancashire.

When the 1939 Register was taken, William was living with his wife Mary Ann at 10 Back Friday St in Blackburn, Lancashire. His occupation was given as a Heavy Work Labourer in the Blowing Room of a Spinning Mill. Also in the house was an unmarried man named Albert, whose surname was initially written as Jackson but changed at a later date to Grogan. His date of birth was stated as 20 Sep 1916 and he worked as a Driller on the Coal Face.

Mary Ann HOGG was born 1 on 05 Oct 1878 in Blackburn, Lancashire. She was christened on 09 Mar 1879 in Immanuel Church, Oswaldtwistle, Lancashire. She died 2 about Nov 1943 in Blackburn, Lancashire. Mary was in a common law marriage with William JACKSON.

Other marriages:
GROGAN, William

In the Sep 1939 Register. Mary A and William Jackson are living at 10, Back Friday Street in Blackburn. William is working as a Labourer in the Blowing Room of a Spinning Mill. They are shown as married but, as yet, no marriage has been found.
A likely reason for this is that Mary A had been married before - the 1939 Register also includes two other people at the address (one redacted) the other is for an Albert Jackson (later amended to Albert Grogan) born on the 20 Sep 1916. A search of the 1916 register of births found an Albert Grogan born in the Oct/Nov/Dec quarter of 1916 in Blackburn and a mother with the maiden name of Hogg.

However, no marriage has been found for William Jackson to a Mary A Grogan, nor a Mary A Hoggs to Grogan.

Marriage Notes:

It appears that Mary Ann separated from her husband William Grogan some-time between 1901 and 1908 and moved in with William Jackson. William is stated as the father of Thurston (b.1908) in the Parish Register, although the child was baptised and Registered with the surname Grogan. As William and Mary Ann are still together at the same address in 1939, it's reasonable to assume that William Jackson was also the father of Albert (b.1916), even though he also was registered with the surname Grogan.

They had the following children.

  M i
Thurston Jackson GROGAN was born on 23 Jan 1908 in Blackburn, Lancashire. He was baptized 1 on 15 Mar 1908 in Christ Church, Blackburn, Lancashire. He died 2 about Feb 1985 in Blackburn, Lancashire.

Thurston was counted in a census on 02 Apr 1911 in 10 Back Friday St, Blackburn In Lancashire.
  M ii Albert GROGAN.
