John inherited a family bible from his aunty Ethel Waller and it has her children listed inside it.
The following has been uncovered online by cousin Nicki and it reveals much about the Parkinson and Foxley family - enjoy reading!
Hi Barbara, Thought you'd be interested in what I've discovered so far... So basically, Uncle John has been given a bible from his Aunty Ethel Waller. The bible was originally presented to 'Harriett Parkinson on leaving Nantwich Christmas 1868'. Inside there's a list of names, which I originally thought was the list of previous owners, but following some research I've now discovered these are actually the names of Harriet's children: - William Henry Foxley (born 16 June 1869) - Mary Emma Foxley (born 29 September 1872) - Elsie Mary Foxley (born 14 December 1881) (NOTE: These names and dates are handwritten into the bible, so assuming they are accurate) My research into them has unearthed the following: - William Henry Foxley died aged 9 in Nantwich. In the 1871 census, William (age 1) is named as the son of Joseph (aged 24 and a Railway Platelayer) and Harriet Foxley (aged 25), living at 241 Wistaston Road, Willerton Heath. Also living with them at the time is John Foxley, aged 7, who appears to be their nephew, but who is listed as a brother later on (see below). - Mary E Foxley is named both in the 1881 and 1891 census' as the daughter of Joseph Meredith and Harriet Foxley. In 1881 they lived, together with Joseph's brother, John M. (aged 17 and an apprentice coach builder) at 32 Eastern Road, Willaston, Wybunbury, Nantwich. This property seems to still exist today (according to google maps). Joseph is listed as a 'Railway Labourman' whilst Mary E. is noted as a 'Scholar'. In 1891, Joseph (age 44), Harriet (age 45), Mary E (age 18) and Elsie (age 9) are now listed as living at 214 Eastern Road. With Joseph returning to the title of Railway Platelayer. - As noted below, Elsie Foxley is noted as the daughter of Joseph and Harriet Foxley in the 1891 census, where she is recorded as being age 9 and a 'scholar'. In the marriage index 1837-1915, Elsie is recorded as marrying James Faulkner in Nantwich in Apr-Jun 1906. As for dear Ethel, the only potential references I've found for her are an Ethel Faulkner. born in Nantwich Oct-Dec 1906 (which is possible, but cutting it fine with the marriage date) and potentially married in 1932 in Macclesfield. I can't find either Ethel, Freda, Elsie or James (Jim) in the 1911 census, which feels odd. So I've used what I've found (i.e. her general year of birth, name, parents name etc, to ask for her birth certificate), so hopefully that will finally solve the mystery. Hope this is of interest to you. Nikki

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?
I think that Robert was born 26 Mar 1573 but unhelpfully his father's name is not given. I hate it when that happens!
Mrs Ayscoghe Boucherett REVIVALHERITAGE 1794 Thomas Lawrence Portrait of Mrs Ayscoghe Boucherett with her two Eldest children Emilia and Ayscoghe, and her half-sister Juliana Angerstein in a garden. Sir Thomas Lawrence (1769-1830) sketched and painted the Boucherett family regularly between 1793 and 1805 and would have been only 25 years old when this pastel picture was completed. Their country seat, Willingham House, Lincolnshire. Read more here

My name is Joe Longsworth and I am trying to learn about my family's history.
In my research, I came across an entry at Ainscough Family History-Mawdesley: February 2014 (ainscough-familyhistory.blogspot.com) from a Dorothy Bowes. She references Robert Aynscough who may have married a family member of one of my paternal ancestors:
"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 can trace my father's line back to a George Longworth, b. 1585 in Bolton. He married a woman named Catherine Stewart in 1608. Considering that their marriages are only a year apart, I think it is highly probable that George Longworth and Eleanor Longworth were siblings, or at the least 1st cousins.
I, too, have reached a dead end. My ability to follow my father's line stops in 1585 with George, at least for now.
Any assistance would be appreciated,

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?

Message from Jasper Parkinson - March 15th 2015:
I have just found an entry on your blog in regards to James Ainscrow and Margaret Hindley.
I have reached them in my own family tree and wondered if you have any information you can share.
Many thanks for anything

I have another newspaper report on the Ainscough family which you may be interested in:
This is the funeral of Hugh Ainscough (1816-1894) of Lancaster House, Parbold.

Another request here from Alistair M - does anybody recognise Mary Ellen Ainscough as part of their line? I have a feeling she might be part of the Parbold line - so Mary can you help?

I came across your web site whilst researching my wife's family tree.
I attach a marriage certificate from 1899 for her grandmother, Mary Ainscough,
and wonder if she is part of your family tree.
Mary ( Ellen ) Mills nee Ainscough according to the UK 1911 Census was born in Dublin. Certainly my wife (Christines) parents visited Bray near Dublin to see relatives there.
I tried to find a birth certificate for Mary Ellen, but Irish censuses seem to all be unavailable.
Ireland is difficult - enemies of genealogists blew up lots of the records...... Try http://www.ancestry.co.uk/cs/uk/ireland first. Baptisms depending on the priest can be useful as well. Same website. http://www.genuki.org.uk/ Genuki is free and you may be able to find somebody who's already done it via the fora.
