  I am looking for the parents of William Robinson. b about 1827 /- five years. He married Elizabeth Constantine of Tyldesley, Lancashire.              

UKBMDS                                                                                                                                          MARRIAGES Jun 1845                                                                                                                      Constantine Elizabeth Ashton &c 20 20                                                                                                 Robinson William Ashton &c 20 20

 William's father was Tom or Thomas and that he was a stonemason, [information from the marriage certificate of William and Elizabeth]. Her parents were George Constantine and her mother was Sarah Aldred [Alldred]

One of William and Elizabeth's sons was Tom Robinson, b 1955 at Salford, Lancs. He was a Trade Unionist and knew and worked with some of the men who formed the first Labour government inc Ben Tillet and Hannen Swaffer. Tom was the first labour town councillor for the Stalybridge council following  the big Carrbrook strike in 1895. Tom married an Alma Mary Elizabeth Bond of Limerick Ireland, 1874at Mexborough [her father was a George Bond his occupation was soldier].Her family are a complete mystery to me, I am unable to find them anywhere before 1874.

Elizabeth Constantine was a sister to the Chartist Joseph Constantine. In 1848, he was one of the leaders of the Chartist troubles in Manchester when Constable James Bright was shot and killed. He and Joseph Radcliff were tried at the Liverpool assizes in December 1848 and sentenced to transportation for life. He was deported in 1849 to Tasmania, aboard the Adelaide.

Any assistance would be appreciated                                                                                                         Shalom                                                                                                                                                     Phyllis nee Robinson
