    Just got back from preston. Very productive day. Followed my Johnson family back from Parr, to Farnworth, then back to Liverpoolin 1756. The worrying thing is one of my ancestors married a Rigby, so I'm probably related to myself by marriage Found out about bastardy papers (useful if you find an illigitamate ancestor with no father named), and how to look up if a will has been proved. Found an ancestor in the Manchester directory in1839, a hairdresser, I was beginning to think he didn't really exist! I am now going to sort through it all to try to make sense of it.

    [/b]1.On the 1881 Census,WILLIAM LEIGH (Railway Station Manager),is shown with his wife ELIZABETH living in Gartons Lane,Sutton,with the eldest child showing as Mary Jane,aged 8yrs.Elizabeth was 37yrs. at the time of the Census.   2.WILLIAM LEIGH died in 1888 and ELIZABETH LEIGH(widow),married my GREAT GREAT Grandfather,William Turner in 1898.She was 54yrs. of age. On her marriage certificate she shows her father as Thomas Laithwaite(deceased),and I am presuming that at the time of her marriage to William Leigh,that would have been her maiden name.     REQUEST PLEASE I have tried every available source to find the Wedding Details of William Leigh and Elizabeth...could someone please help me to find it....Thank-you, Derek

    ciders
    By ciders,
    A friend of mine who works there has been to see a medium who told her a man had died in the pub and haunts the cellar, my friend is quite convinced by this medium as she described the exact lay out of the cellar area and a few of the staff have been locked in the cellar when on their own. Does anyone on here know of anyone who died there, customer or landlord, or any other history on the place?
