Old Mersey Times - Ainscough references

Hi Barbara
The main reason for this email is to ask you if you have a Hugh Ainscough from Burscough? Because there is an article on the Old Mersey Times website about the closure in 1881 of the Southport and West Lancashire Banking Company. Its from the Liverpool Journal. There is a Hugh Ainsclough (notice there is an L in the middle of the surname, but it still could be the same family) who was listed as one of the bank's directors.
Here is the web address, just in case you are interested.

Thanks for this Sylvia - (I think that all refs. to Ainscough may have been misspelt on this site as Ainsclough - typos??) yes, Hugh Ainscough is Hugh of H&R Ainscough, corn millers, Burscough and Mary & Anthony from Parbold are direct descendants. I have a lot on this blog about them already - see previous posts. H&R Ainscough were the Parbold RC church benefactors. A search of the 'Old Mersey Times' site for "Ainsclough" reveals the following 5 refs. nb. but nothing is found for Ainscough!

However, Im not sure if items 3, 4 or 5 - thats William, Thomas or John are part of the Mawdesley/ Parbold family as yet - perhaps somebody out there has researched already - if so can you let us know.
