1772-St. Mary’s, Rufford Parish Church-AINSCOUGH

This is my line of Ainscough's - as Nancy Engelhardt from Rhodes Island points out...."Further research into this church shows Rufford Parish in Ormskirk District. This parish was formerly a chapelry in the parish of Croston, but was made parochial by act of parliament."
Our earliest records can be found in Ormskirk Church 1558, Croston and Mawdesley. See earlier blog of January 21st 2007.

Thanks again to Andy Scarisbrick ( making the following information available and accessible to all. The information below represents extracts from St. Mary's Rufford Parish Church Records from 1772.
