Sir Ayscoghe Boucherett

My family have a copy of the original (as the original disintegrated) of Sir Ayscoghe Boucherett’s coat of arms. That’s the line that we descend from. 
I have lots of info from that line if you ever need to add to your line? Which line do you descend from? 
Kindest Regards

Hello Helen
How kind of you to contact me and thanks for the family Coat of Arms.
I came across a connection to the Lancashire Aynscough family connection quite unexpectedly as I was researching several families in Lancashire. The earliest Aynscough ancestor I have is Robert who married Eleanor Longworth in 1607.They both appear to be of Bolton le Moors as that is where they married.
I think that Robert was born 26 Mar 1573 but unhelpfully his father's name is not given. I hate it when that happens!
I believe that the Aynscough family were of some importance being in some cases Burgers; some branches settling in Blackrod, Bolton le Moors and Preston. I'd like very much to know more about them but can find little beyond the odd bits of information come across on the Internet.
I can find no earlier generations of Robert Aynscough so I guess you could say that I am stuck at this point.
Tell me what line you are following, I would interested. Did you also come across a family connection when you were least expecting it?
