Mary Hulme was my great grandmother. 

Is there any way of finding out who the Hulmes worked for? 
Is the Heathote Rd address significant in relation to where they might have worked? 
Does anyone have access to the 1871 census do you? That would give me not only more information on the Hulmes, but also on James Horton, a miner, who at least in 1872 was living in Gregory Street with at least a son Thomas.

The Hulmes
George Hulme was born in Longton in 1812, though christened in Wolstanton on Christmas Day 1813. I guess the family had moved to Wolstanton because he was to marry Amelia Richardson there on 29 December 1833. She was born in Manchester, 9 September 1812, her parents Thomas and Elizabeth. The Hulmes were a Potteries family (although one son became a miner). George Hulme described himself as a 'Potter's Printer' and one of his sons was a 'Potter's Presser' (helped by his wife a 'Potter's Presser Assistant') and our Mary was a 'Potter'.

George and Amelia had at least 12 children over the 25 years from their marriage, Amelia being 46 when her last child was born. At least three died young, possibly a fourth. They had:
Eliza christened 15/11/1835
George 18/12/1836 (died 5/7/1851)
Amelia 13/4/1838 (I assume dies young)
Thomas 24/12/1839
Joseph 2/5/1841
Henry 19/6/1842
John Richardson Hulme 22/10/1843
Samuel 3/8/1845 (who died 19/7/1846)
Samuel 7/8/1848
(Mary 1852)
George Richardson Hulme 23/10/1853
Amelia Maria Hulme 8/9/1858

I have put our Mary in brackets because there is some confusion in the IGI about her (two Mary Hulmes born 1851, one dying at the age of 11) and the FreeBMD has two Mary Hulmes born in 1852 (the right year).

Whatever, Mary Hulme meets Thomas Horton, born in Coventry but having travelled north to find work as a miner (with, presumably, his father James, with the same problem). They marry in Edensor Parish Church, Stoke. Mary has been living with her family in Heathcote Road, Thomas with his in Gregory Street. Witnesses are Eliza Thomas and Richard Wright, and they named their first child after Eliza. Both Mary and Thomas are illiterate.

Mary and Thomas Horton initially have two children, Lissie (I assume this is a nickname but I don't know for what) born in Longton in 1873 and Joseph J. (James?) born in Burntwood in 1878. There may have been others in between who didn't survive.

The Hulme family by 1881 was still living in 'Heathcote Court' at 17 Heathcote Road. I assume this was a tenement with several 'flats'. George (at age 69 describing himself as an 'unemployed Potter's Printer') and Amelia were living there, as was their son Joseph (the Potter's Presser) and his wife Ann Maria. Next door at number 15 was their son Thomas (a miner), a lodger in the house of a charwoman and her family. And Thomas and Mary Horton moved into number 17 as well with their two children. I guess Thomas might have been out of work, or perhaps this was a temporary arrangement
