Bradshaw & Burkinshaw

Our son-in-law is descended from Matthew Bradshaw b 1/3/1822, so I've been trying to puzzle out the line before then. After the death of Wm in 1851, it looks to me as if Eliza married Peter Harrison Brown in Everton (St Ann's) 20/6/53 (she is widow, 50, dr of Joseph Birkinshaw, filesmith) -then she disappears, even though Peter is still said to be married in 1861 (widower in '71). Are William's parents Matthew & Jane? The 1st son seems to be named after Eliza's father, to placate him after getting his daughter pregnant, but the 2nd son is Matt, as expected.

Best wishes,

Geoffrey White,
Norton, Sheffield.
