I have been researching my maternal grandmother’s family tree for the last three years. Her name was Annie AINSCOUGH. I have traced the family back to Chorley in Lancashire. James Ainscough, lived with his wife Winifred Rosbottom and their two sons Henry and Jerimiah, at Bengal St, Chorley, Lancashire. This information appears on the 1841 census. The family subsequently moved to Liverpool. Henry Ainscough became a cooper and moved with his brother Charles to London, where they lived in Church Row ,Limehouse, Stepney. They then moved to Dublin to work with the Guinness Brewery, circa 1865.
I have done all my research from Dublin and I wondered if you have come across this Ainscough line in your research? I would love some more information the earliest is a marriage entry in Standish parish (St Wilifred’s C of E) for James and Winifred 28/08/1834. I cannot research further back from that date as I live here in Dublin.
All the family here in Dublin are Roman Catholics.
There is an entry for a James Ainscough son of Henry and Margaret in St John’s RC, Wigan 1/10/1814 which would tie-in with the age profile, but that is all the info I have.
If you have any information no matter how slight, I would be most appreciative.
Your site is fantastic and heartfelt congratulations on it.
Regards and many thanks,
Ps Some of the family moved back to FLINT? Circa 1880’s. I am sure the family must still be there as I get the impression it is a rather small area in Wales!
