I have come across this site searching for my Moulding relatives. I don’t see the name on your list so it is quite possible she is one of the lost ones. Maria Moulding born abt. 1850 born Blackburn, Lancashire, married James J.L. Astley of Accrington, Lancashire. Two children found listed were Margaret 1879 and Eleanor 1877.
Margaret is married in Ontario, Canada in 1911. I have the marriage application that lists parents, spouse and where they would reside. Margaret had two children that I know of, Eleanor Maria and William Robert Hannant. Margaret had married a widower Robert Walter Hannant. This Eleanor was my grandmother.
My mother is very anxious to know more of this family. We only have a picture of William and my grandmother so would be interested in seeing pictures of other Moulding relatives for a “likeness” comparison if you would call it that.

Enjoyed reading Ellen’s story. She lived close to my grandparent’s homes. I remember William (Bill) well. My mother taught alongside him in St. Austin’s for many years. We always kept up with the boys who became priests: Frank and Bill. I still have the card Frank sent me for my first birthday in1942. There are photos of them at home. I seem to remember they were related to Miss Thornley who kept the sweetshop in Manchester Road in the fifties. She may well have been related. Well done for such a full site.

My husband Richard Antony Moulding recently passed in Donegal Ireland on the 19th August 2006.We had been married for 4 years and have a daughter called Robyn-Joy. We are indeed very sad at our great loss…a wonderful dad and sole-mate. We loved him dearly…
I am the son of Richard Antony Moulding(DOB 27/08/1954), along with my older sister Holly Louise and my lovely little sis Robyn. Dad will be missed dearly but his memory lives and breathes through all his children. I found this web site but there seems to be no sign of our Moulding tree except the link of Bennet. I do have a basic family history which links our Moulding family to the Daborn family. Is there a way of finding more out?

My mother is Monica Moulding (b. Ocotber 27, 1931 in Preston). She has a twin sister, Barbara, who lives in Grimsargh, Preston). She and her 7 brothers and sisters were the children of Thomas and Annie Moulding. (Thomas was son of Thomas and Mary.) My mother moved here to Canada in her twenties and had six children of her own. I am one of them. My other used to say, proudly, “Oh, she’s a Moulding!” when she was referring to a relative’s sense of humour or joie de vivre, including my own and one of my daughter’s. Does anyone know what I am talking about in this respect? Or is the Moulding joie de vivre only part of my family’s legend-making?
