Afternoon

Post by kalham »

Afternoon, Anybody help please? doing a family tree using Ancestry.com. struggling with a family connection with Barnoldswick. We was originally told by family members that John Thomas Swindlehurst possibly owned a factory there, wife we think is Alice maiden name possibly Broughton and one daughter named Mary born 20th Nov 1911. Mary Swindlehurst is my grandmother and I have her death certificate confirming her birth date and being born here. We now believe Alices mother and father was James and Mary Broughton and Marys maiden name is Ormerod, we now believe this is the link to a mill (Edmondson Ormerod) but are now snuggling to prove this, any help would be appreciated. thank you Kalham and Graham

Hi Kalham, can’t be of much help myself as I’m not from the area, but, there are lots on here who are, and I’m sure you will have some help in the next few days. They are very good on their local history.

Thank you Gloria, I have had a quick glance of the website and am amazed on the information and knowledge of the area so fingers crossed.

Morning Kalham, welcome to the site. For starters I have reposted my Edmondson Index which seems to have gone AWOL. That might give you clues. If you put 'Edmondson' in the site search in the banner you'll find lots of references. Good luck, there are a lot of them.

Thank you Stanley, we think we have same person (Edmondson Armerod), the thing that is confusing us is that on the 1851 census he is down as Armerod Edmondson yet on the 1861 census he is down as Edmondson Armerod so we are not sure which is his surename or it could even be two different people.

Look for father's name. A second surname was often the mother's maiden name.
