Looking for information on WILKINS family from Longton, near Preston.
Richard WILKINS married Ellen Cross(e) 24 Dec 1744, Penwortham, St Mary.
They had a son William born 11 Oct 1745, Houghwick
William WILKINS married Christiana (maiden name not known).
They had a son called Thomas christened 12 Feb 1775, Longton, St Andrews
Thomas WILKINS married Ellen (again maiden name not known).
They had a daughter called Christiana who was christened 25 Oct 1812,
Longton, St Andrews.
Christiana WILKINS married Nicholas TAYLOR from Hesketh with Becconsall on
the 18 Oct 1832 at Penwortham, St Mary. Both were Wesleyan Methodists.
Nicholas TAYLOR was christened on 29 Jun 1800 at Hesketh with Becconsall,
All Saints, and was the son of James and Betty TAYLOR.
After his marriage to Christiana WILKINS they lived at Moss House, Mawdsley
They had a daughter called Christiana who was baptised 7 Jun 1837 at
Ormskirk Wesleyan Church
Christiana TAYLOR married Henry HARTLEY from Higham on 28 February 1867 at
Deane Parish Church, Bolton.
They had a daughter called....yes....Christiana (the fourth in five
generations) who was christened 9 Apr 1871 at Higham Wesleyan Methodist
Christiana HARTLEY married a John Thomas WENSLEY on 20th November 1897 at
Higham Wesleyan Methodist Church.
I am trying to discover the maiden names of Ellen, the wife of Thomas
WILKINS; and Christiana, the wife of William WILKINS. Anyone able to help?
I am aware the WILKINS family had a brewery in Longton although this was not
really thriving until the 1850's. My main interest is earlier than this
however I believe Thomas WILKINS may have been the innkeeper at The Bull,
Would also be interested to hear from any one who may have connections with
the TAYLOR family from Hesketh with Becconsall / Ormskirk.
By the way I have quite a lot of information on HARTLEY's from Higham; and
WENSLEY's from Bolton Cum Redmire / Linton (near Grassington), Yorkshire and
then Sabden and Higham, should anyone be interested in either.

Hope this helps narrow it down.
>I'm hoping there is someone on the list with local knowledge of

I'm not aware of a Latch Fold near Crawshawbooth... there are Goodshaw
Fold, Clough Fold, Townsendfold, Booth Fold and Stonefold in the area. But
it could be one of the many very localised names that are everywhere round
here and never made it as census locations.
Try Rawtenstall Reference Library, who have indexes to all Rossendale
placenames mentioned in every Census year.
Does anyone know anything about DICKINSON MILL, ASPULL HEATH, WIGAN.
My 2xGreat Grandfather was the miller there in 1835, where his wife was killed by a thunderbolt at that time.
Any little snippets of information welcomed. Thank you.
Good day to every one, I am new to the list, and am not sure whether I have joined the right one, so please bear with me if I am in the wrong place:- )
I am interested in finding out more about my family who originated in Clarksfield area. The information I have was researched some 30 years ago, and I have no proof as to its accuracy. JOHN LEES 1750 - 1815 owned several coal mines in Clarksfield, and was involved in building a religious settlement called Fairfield in Droylsden.
His son also JOHN LEES was deeply religious and wrote hymns.
Is anyone else researching this family?
Am I in the right place?
Any help will be gratefully received.

Subject: [LAN] HAYTON's in Manchester
Still searching for my elusive HAYTON's. Think my ggrandfather John might be the son in the family in either Alma Road Manchester, or Hyde (1881 Census). Know John had moved to Wade Lane Westhoughton by marriage in Nov 1892. However my detective work didn't pay off as no sign of HAYTON family at Westhoughton in 1891 Census.
Anyone with access to Manchester 1891 Census Index, could they please look to see if the HAYTON's were anywhere in Manchester. Father is Thomas HAYTON.

Good morning, everyone,
I have joined the Lancs List as I have just discovered some of my
Burwell, Cambs - PALMERs - living in Lancashire and working in the
cotton mills on the 1881 Census.
I have 4 PALMER families all living at the same address:
Reedsholme Buildings, Higher Booths, Lancashire
ref: RG11/Piece 4133/Folio 37/Pgs 19 & 23
1. Stephen PALMER, bn Burwell, Cambs, 1855; his
Lancashire born wife, Margaret TAYLOR, and their 2 children,
Richard W. & George L.H.
2. William PALMER, bn Burwell, 1855; his wife, Elizabeth A. bn Whittlesea,
Cambs and their 2 children, John W. & Ernest.
3. Henry PALMER, bn Burwell, 1861, with his young brothers and sisters,
Amelia, Frederick, George - all bn Burwell; & Alfred Edward bn
4. Louis PALMER, bn Burwell 1857; his wife Ellen Maria bn Field Dalling,
Norfolk, and their daughter, Annie Maria, bn Higher Booths.
William, Henry & Louis are brothers; their parents are William & Maria
PALMER from Burwell. It looks like they moved en masse to Lancashire
to find work, part. as their youngest child, Alfred Edward was born there.
There is no mention of William & Maria so I assume they had died before
Stephen is a cousin of William, Henry & Louis; they are all grandsons of my
Gt Gt Gt Grandparents, Stephen PALMER of Burwell and Maria da SILVA
So is anyone else researching PALMERS? And where is Higher Booths?
I cannot find it in my AA Road Atlas. Would it be near Oldham, as I believe
I may have PALMER connections there also!
Regards, Ann McClean
in Llanmerewig, Mid-Wales, U.K.

Does anyone have information on St.Nicholas Church. My grandparents were married there in 1910.Is it still standing? I was told it was called the Seaman's church, and I was wondering why it was given this title.
Also searching ILES, BUTTERS 1841-1891 Thank you.
Very kind listers searched the St Johns, Preston parish records and confirmed for me SAMUEL SINGLETON baptised October 1820. Mother Isabella Singleton. The word 'bastard' inserted underneath. An entry followed - 'Soup' or 'Soap' (hard to read) Houses/Preston/Trade. Can anyone tell me to what this entry would have referred .
Isabella, the daughter of Joseph Singleton and Arabella Whalls, was born in Bradshaw in 1799, and in 1828 married Thomas Ingham.
Any connections ?
I found a burial in the Lancashire Parish Transcripts.
William son of John and Isabella LITTLER of Senely Green buried 16 July
1811 aged 26 years cause of death was given as Manslaughter.
Can anyone tell me what, if any information would be available on this
John LITTLER married Isabella BIRCHALL 29 Jan 1765.
These are what I found, the first is a closer hit.
