>June Downer, I now live in Gloucestershire but I'm originaly from
Liverpool. The names I am going to be researching are:
........Burns - Liverpool<
My wife's maiden name is Burns and the family is from Liverpool, at least
the last couple of generations. Her father, George Arthur Burns was born in
Everton in 1900, his father Joseph (b 1874) and his father again - John (b
abt 1836) are all from Liverpool.
If any of these interest you at all, please let me know (but I'm on holiday
for a week from tomorrow/friday)
As a member of one of the Chatterton families I would like to here from
other Chatterton families, to exchange stories and help each other in
looking up our past. If you need help I have collected a lot of info
on the family.
**** WOULD ALSO LIKE TO RECIEVE FAMILY CHARTS (ANCHESTER, DECENDENT,
ETC.) TO ADD TO MY DATABASE AND USE TO HELP OTHERS. **********
**** interested in all countries ****
With more information I may be able to tie some families together, we
all have common roots going back to 1068, to a de Chatterton who came
over to England with William 1st.
If you know of someone working on this family name who is not on the
net my address is below.

My name is Andy Hooley from Tottington, Bury, Lancs.
Have been into genealogy for about 18 months now and love every minute of
it. My family, on my fathers side, have mainly come from the Manchester
area Openshaw, Gorton & Droylsden although some have moved out of
Lancashire as times goes backwards.
My main aim is tracing my Hooley line have have got back to 1820's in
Droylsden and if my assumptions are correct c1790 Derbyshire.
I also host the Lancashire Surname Interests at
This week I have also made contact with my first internet cousion (not yet
sure how many times removed) and it feels magic.
Look forward to a happy mailing session,

Isn't there doubt that DNA tests are actually as accurate as they're
supposed to be?
Any way while we're on this subject, it adds weight to my view that
doubles are actually genetic throw backs, for example: I have a tape
pal who lives in New Zealand, he's seen a photograph of me and tells
me that I look like one of the girls who works on the check outs at
his local super market, if she were to trace her family and as we all
know I am doing mine I think that we'd find a connection, what do you

Hi. I was at the LDS Family History Center today looking at films of parish
registers and remembered that someone had asked about the name Fisher. I
remebered the name as I had
a neighbor by that name. Anyway, there were many Fishers on this film. The
LDS number is Film # 1526146, St. Mary's in Lancaster. These records are

Re; your plea for FOSTERs, my mother was a FOSTER from Ormskirk. I
have traced the family back to Fletcher FOSTER born c. 1770 possibly
in Lathom. Fletcher married Elizabeth ? c.1795. I have found two children,
Jane born 1797 in Lathom and Josiah born 1799 in Lathom. Josiah is my
3 x G Grandfather. He married Ellen FLETCHER of Burscough c.1825. If
you or any of the other Lancsgen subscribers think they have links to
the above, please let me know.

My name is Mary Croft. I live in Ottawa, Ontario Canada.
The person(s) that I am looking for is:
James Schofield was born in Salford near Manchester around 1815. This
information is consistent with all censuses and his marriage record
and his obiturary - so I have to assume that it is correct!
On his marriage certificate it states that he is the son of James,
occupation listed as "Calender"? - i have no idea what that is!
I would be interested in a little history of Salford between 1800 and
1820 - I am under the impression that it wasn't very settled at that
time - but I may be wrong!
The name KERSHAW may be important to this family. James named one of
his sons John KERSHAW Schofield. He also named a terrace that he
built in Fulham, KERSHAW terrace - it may have been his mother's name?

I'm Lesley Huppert and I live in Constance Bay, on the Ottawa River, just
west of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. I'm interested is in unravelling a mystery
in Manchester. My 4x great grandfather DAVID HARDIE was a ware-
houseman who had businesses in both Manchester and London; he's
supposed to be Scottish but am having trouble proving or disproving
it. He married ELIZABETH CHETHAM in 1804 at Manchester Cathedral
but was living in London 1809-1811and son born there raised his family in
the City. A David Hardie with a wife called called Ellen Rushton was
baptising children in Liverpool/Manchester in the 1820s and I don't know if
it's my man or another ... I'd thought the name David combined with Hardie
was fairly distinctive for the time!
Can anyone offer any help?
Gill Hamilton here in Southport. Just a brief note to say hello and
introduce myself. I have been researching my family tree and attempting
some local history research for the past 5 years. Great Fun. Principally
my family connections are around Wigan/leigh and Atherton areas and the
names I am looking at are:
Always interested to hear from fellow researchers.

My wife and I are just starting to research our relative (!) family trees
and whilst I am making some headway we are having trouble with the Lancs
My wife's maiden name is MUDD and - we think - her father was born in
WHITWORTH which is just outside Rochdale. We do have a relative in Rochdale
who would be able to conduct some research but he is a complete novice, even
more than us. Hence the question, are there research facilities in the
Rochdale Library, is their anyone there to assist? Is there a Mormon Family
Research Centre in Rochdale and is the assistance there good?
Any help or pointers would be appreciated,
Watching the messages to the list over the last few weeks I have noticed
that when you introduce yourselves you invariably list your interest names.
Quite a few of them are obviously of Northern England origin and
consequently could be being researched by the Manchester and Lancashire
Family History Society members.
As we run the members interest names list for the Internet group of MLFHS
as part of our webpage, could I suggest that you may like to pay a visit to
it as it is changing on a daily basis and there are always new names being

Sorry about that, Finding Folk has the odd minor error but they are usually
correct where they live. Let us know what you find out about Methodist
records, according to Hey, they should be in the record office, but not
according to finding folk ( ot they can't let you see them).
I have similar fun with R.C. records on my Culshaw/Fazakerley sides.
