Note - at home in Catton the surname was Maddy. even when the youngest was Christened
495 11/09/1836 Ann Catherine Maddy, William Maddy, Labourer, Sarah 06/09/1836
This family has been corrected by - who sent several emails in March 2008. Note surname variations - I have used the version in the record.
By 1841 William's father John Madder is dead, he died in 1838, they are all living in Catton. Mary, the oldest has already moved away. Catherine, the youngest was born in Catton, I have her birth details, so the family was living in Catton before 1837.
