Ann's paternal grandfather may be a Thomas Spiers b.abt.1777.marries a Mary Neale in 1808. They had 7 children that I have found in parish records. Ann's father Charles was one of these baptised 1822. If he is of this family. he would have been the elder brother of my husband's ancestor Thomas. Ashton-under-hill is not a big place, although there were many Spires/Spiers., but the dates tally. Have you looked in Freebmd? Hope this is helpful.
