Thanks to Anne Metcalfe for reminding me about this website.
I've used it before to find the info. about Mary Ainscough's ancestors Thomas (1865-1927), John and Hugh Ainscough three of the sons of Hugh (1816-1894) and Susan (Fairclough) (1830-1923), of Lancaster House,Parbold.
However, a 2nd glance at the archive on this website and a quick search for the name Ainscough reveals many more, both current and deceased players. Could this be a hidden Cricket gene within the family??? So if cricket is something you've not yet tried then perhaps you should give it a go - it could be your thing!
There are 10 Ainscough English players listed covering the following regions:
Worcestershire, Bedfordshire, Rishton, Clifton, Lancashire Liverpool & District. Some of these I know about but if anybody has any additional information about the players, photographs or census detail I would love to find out if these Ainscough's all originate from the same family. (Definite family links are in bold).
