William Stevenson of Auburn Lodge
Topic posted by Tom ... dated:29 December 2007
I am the great*3 grandson of John Stevenson (1754-1793) whose brother William (1760-1790) lived at Auburn Lodge. Presumably it was their father William (born in Sheffield in 1728) who built Auburn Lodge and named Manchester's Stevenson Square? But even he would be only 12 years old in 1740 when the Lodge was apparently built.

I wonder if anyone has better information please?

Vanadium, you will have to open your home contact for me to supply you with an address. I have copies of Alans study about the Lodge that I could then forward to you.

I’m still interested in the history of Auburn Lodge and the Stevenson family, if Alan or Dave are still around.

William, who died in 1790, had no children.  He left Auburn Lodge to John’s eldest son, also William, born in 1778.  William married Maria Coulborn in 1802 and their family is commemorated by a plaque in Manchester Cathedral.  In July 1804 William advertised Auburn Lodge for sale in the Manchester Mercury.  He was obviously unsuccessful as he went on to advertise the property to let seventeen times between March 1805 and July 1806.

Many thanks.

I'm sorry, but I do not know how to "forward my email address to Dave"!

[I have Tom's e-mail address if you want to contact him. Dave].

Another Tom?
I have some information regarding Auburn. It comes from Alan Crossland and his research of the area. It is quite detailed and I am sure of interest to you. Forward your address to Dave if you would like to follow this up.
