It gets very confusing with all these Thomas'. This Thomas was born in 1781 in Livesey, Lancashire. In the 1841 and 1851 census, he was recorded as resident in Blackburn, Lancashire.
He was a farmer.
He died aged 88 years old in 1869 in Bury, Lancashire.
I can't trace Margaret's maiden name or parentage. She was born in 1781 in Balderston, Lancashire. In the 1851 census, she is resident in Blackburn aged 70 years old. She was also recorded as working as a farmer. I have no record of her death.
This is as far back as I have traced the Whittaker family.
