Mary Lynch Bowker died sometime between the 1871 and 1881 census. In 1881, James Banks and his oldest son, Thomas, lived in what is called the Chadwicks Buildings. These were buildings built specifically to house the poor and destitute. His other four children, including Elizabeth's mother, Mary Ann, are in the Crumpsall Pauper House.
James remarried in 1886 and had more children with his new wife Emily. In the 1891 census his older children are back with him in the family home. This is the last census in which I can find him. The only thing I can find about James's father is that his name was Thomas.
