William Clegg was married to Mary Cocker
William parents possibly were Joseph Clegg and Mary Platt
Mary Cocker parents are possibly Joseph Cocker and MaryAnn Dawtry
Those are all the names I have in the 1800's

Well I'm very late in getting this in but better late than never. On top of
that I think I'm in the wrong list. William Clegg married Mary Crocker in
Shaw. they had 2 children, possibly 3. For sure John Clegg born 1855 and
William born 1857. I find an Elizabeth also born 1854, but have been unable
to verify it. Mary and William divorced and then Mary hid the then 3 year
old in her shirt and boarded a ship in Liverpool in about 1861 for America.
I've located in census various Clegg families that all lived on the same
street which I can't seem to locate right now. The other child John stayed
with father and as far as I can tell never married or had children. I have
been unable to locate if there are any siblings of father William Clegg
(born in 1832). Any help and any direction to take in searching the
archives is welcome. I have joined the new lists for Lancs and Manchester.
If I should be in another list I would love to know. Thanks for any help.

Hi.. for the archives, my Lancashire surnames are as follows:
SURNAMES ROBINSON HOWARD DENNISON BARTON RIGBY HOWARD JOHNSON BARTON BALL HESKETH BIRCH ILLINGWORTH GRIFFITHS HARVEY SEARLE. (Note Illingworth is also Yorkshire)
All these are based in and around the parishes of North Meols, Ormskirk, Rufford, Kirkham, Clitheroe, and some towards Liverpool.
Some lines have been traced back to before the start of the PRs through Wills etc, especially the North Meols families. Please contact me if you would like any further information.
Hello out there!
The end of RootsWeb lists is just around the corner. If you want to make sure anyone reading the archives in future can find you, be sure to post your interests (surnames in all caps; first names, dates, and locations if you chose) and your munged email address to the RootsWeb lists to which you subscribe before 29 February.
There are now hundreds of lists/groups on Groups.io that have moved from RootsWeb. You can search for a group at https://groups.io/ and then click on "Find or Create a Group." Many RootsWeb admins have added the word "RootsWeb" to the descriptions of their new groups, so if your first attempt doesn't find the right group, trying adding the keyword RootsWeb to your search. There's also a group just to announce new family research lists, RootsWeb Announce. Search the messages there to find a group.
It's been a pleasure administering this list. I hope to see many of you on Groups.io or on the Ancestry/RootsWeb message boards.
Take care and best of luck with your research.

Colne Library BB8 0AP.
Back in August 2013 Rodney Brackstone came to talk to us about the Use
of DNA in Family History.
He's making a return visit next Wednesday to update us on what advances
have been made in the intervening 6 years in the understanding of how
DNA can be helpful to family historians.
The talk starts at 7.30pm - doors open at 7pm so there will be a chance
to chat to other members and perhaps ask for help with any problems you
have come across in your research. All welcome. The meeting room is
upstairs but there is a lift available. The full address is Colne
Library, Market Street, Colne, Lancashire, BB8 0AP.
