Dear Barbara
I hope you don't mind me e-mailing you after finding your site on the web.
I am researching my family tree of the Ainscough family in Southport (previously North Meols).With the help of the parish records of St Cuthberts church in Churchtown I have traced one side of my mums family back to Hugh Ainscough who died in 1820 aged 79 years. That makes him born around 1741. There is no record of his baptism at St Cuthberts so presumably he moved into this area but I don't know where from. His first wife was called Elizabeth (Betty) and she was buried at St Cuthberts on 2 Jan 1775 he then married Jane Rymer in May 1775. We are descended from this second marriage as, from the records, Hugh and Betty had 3 sons between 1768 and 1776 all called Thomas and sadly all died in childhood.
I hope all this makes sense and perhaps you can shed some light as to the origins of Hugh so I can take the tree further back.
Looking forward to hearing from you.

Hi Susan
I do already have a little information about this Ainscough family, previously researched by Andrew Scarisbrick, and if Im right I think that this is also his Ainscough connection.....however, I also understand that Andrew has been trying for some time to find a link back from Hugh b.1740-d.1820 without any success. There is a tree available for download (file name is Ainscough_Scarisbrick.pdf) in the widget box on the right which shows the information gathered to date.
From the information Andrew Scarisbrick has provided in the tree a brief outline is as follows:

Hugh Ainscough 1740-1820 m (1st wife) Elizabeth c1740-1774
Thomas Ainscough b.1768- died in childhood?
Thomas Ainscough b.1772- - died in childhood?
Hugh Ainscough 1740-1820 m (2nd wife)Jane Rymer 1752-1828

Mary Ainscough m John Rymer
Thomas Ainscough 1776-1785
James Ainscough 1780-? m Jenny wright
Richard Ainscough 1783-1800
Margaret Ainscough 1786-1799
Thomas Ainscough 1790-? m Ann Fairclough
Ellen Ainscough 1793-1795
William Ainscough 1796-1797

Also the following early records from Halsall, St Cuthberts Parish may be of interest to you - which you may or may not have seen....could any of these Ainscoughs be related?

Im sorry I cant be of any further help and hope that some of this information is new to you.....I am curious as to where you fit in to this family? Who are you descended from? Should you discover any further information pre Hugh b1741, his origins and extended family please do let me know so that I can update my information.
Best of luck!

Hi Barbara and Susan.
I have researched the North Meols/Scarisbrick branch of the Ainscough family thoroughly, Susan, and would be quite happy to share what I have. Whereabouts do you fit into the tree? We are definitely related.
As for before Hugh (1740), this is still a bit of a mystery. I am fairly convinced he comes from the Ainscough family of Mawdsley somewhere, because of the repetition of particular names in both families. Hugh Ainscough of Mawdsley (~1685) had sons James, Thomas and Richard. Hugh Ainscough of North Meols (1740) had sons Thomas (4 of them), James, Richard and William. However, the link remains elusive.

Hoping to hear from you soon,
Andrew Scarisbrick.
