  TONGE, William : born c. 1785, of Manchester.  Genealogical details and census extracts relating to the descendents of William Tonge of Manchester, a family in the brick laying trade.

Researched after being contacted by Kevin Hall of Rockingham, Ontario, Canada, who was interested in Evelyn Tonge of Manchester, wife of William Haslam.  The details on this page should be viewed as tentative rather than fact - more research needed to be certain that the tree is correct.
