Having recently only found out there are Ainscoughs in my family tree, I went searching out more information on them and along with a lot of a results your blog came up. I'm not entirely sure if this is the same family, but I am hoping this will be a good starting point.
My name is Kathryn Williams and I live in Auckland, New Zealand. The Ainscough line showed up for me when I found the maiden name of A Great Grandmother x 5 was Jane Ainscough before her marriage to Thomas Monks in 1825. It seems to be that her parents are James Ainscow and Margaret Hindley who owned a 20 acre farm in Aspull.
Living so far away with no local knowledge has been an interesting learning curve. Coming across Farmers with 20 acres after cotton workers , miners and one Publican has been a surprise.
Is this your line? If it is my Mum and I are curious to know more. If not , my apologies and if it would be possible to push my luck are you able to point me in the right direction?
Auckland, New Zealand.

If you recognise this Ainscow in your tree - Aspull 1780s - please get in touch. Either add a comment at the bottom of this entry or email me directly.
