And Joanne Horridge (firstname.lastname@example.org) is also keen to make further links.....it seems the Cowleys & Ainscoughs are in everybody's family tree!
I've found a link in my father in laws family to the Cowleys and Ainscoughs, but on both his fathers and mothers side. Do Thomas Justin Cowley and Francis Joseph Cowley appear on yours? I have John Ainscough who married Margaret Wignall on my tree. Mary Ainscough (nee Wright) who died last year is my father in laws cousin.
Joanne, my tree needs updating, I can find Francis Joseph Cowley but not a Thomas Justin Cowley. I also have a Gerald Ainscough (c1919-?) married E Horridge and Joseph Ainscough (c1916-?) married Mary Horridge in 1940 - see the following for a rough outline - feel free to download documents from the black widget box on the right:
Hugh Ainscough (1689-1745)m Elizabeth ?
James Ainscough(1711-1782)m Margaret (1739-?)
John Ainscough (1752-1835)m Margaret Worthington (1751-1835)
John Ainscough(1794-1872)m Margaret Wignall (1797-1866)of Reynolds Farm, Mawdesley
John Ainscough(1838 -1916)m Ellen Smith (1837-1892)of Rutters Farm
William Ainscough(1880)m Garlin
Brothers Joseph Ainscough(1916-?)m Mary Horridge in 1940 and Gerald Ainscough(c1919-?)m E Horridge
My direct link is John Ainscough & Margaret (Worthington). If you let me have further information on where you fit into the tree I can try and establish how we are related- Also if you have any images you would like to share that would be great.
Good luck! - B

"Hi, Well my link is my father in law: his father was Robert Horridge (1900-1974)who's brother was Samuel Horridge, he had a daughter called Mary Horridge. Mary married Joseph Ainscough in 1940.I have lots of info showing links between Horridges, Cowleys, Wrights and Ainscoughs.
Thanks for this John, Jodycat & Joanne - if any of you have any old photos of Mawdesley, Parbold, weddings, families, census detail, wills etc that you would like to share with others please let me know.

"Joanne, That’s my family! John Danson & Winifred are my Mother & Father. My mother was great friends of her cousin Maud (& Gertie who lived at St Helens, Fr Austin Griffins Mother). I didn’t know her that well although I used to take my Mother to see her occasionally, Did she have 2 sons from the Horridge side Robert & Bernard?
