    Warrington’s population in 1801 was some 11,000. Between the 1840s and 1880s, the town’s population doubled to about 45,000 with the most rapid phase of growth occurring from the 1870s. By 1901 it had reached 65,000. The town’s good communications and expanding industries attracted migrants especially from Ireland. The migrant families crowded into the small terraced houses and courts typified by those shown around Buttermarket Street on the 1851 OS.
    The Cowens lived there from before 1873 until after 1878.

    This was Thomas' prize in in 1878 from Cockhedge Sunday School, Warrington. From the birthplaces of his siblings it seems the family were in Newton-le-Willows/Warrington between about 1873 and 1879.

    Still standing in Warrington. The chapel like building with side wall to Naylor Street, is appropriately austere. It is two storeys, painted brick, gable end to the main road. The side elevations feature round headed windows to ground and first floors. Windows are modern as is the shopfront. The centre window of the south gable has a bracketed hood, above which
    is a plaque proclaiming 1817. The building is shown on the 1826 map as a Wesleyan Methodist Sunday School. Tie plates indicate some structural problems.
