About Wilfred Ainscough b.1899
Residence: 1901 Copyhold Farm, Wrightington - Later moved to Paradise Farm, Shevington
Spouse: Alice Wright 1931
John Cobham writes: Uncle Wilf married my mothers sister, so his brothers & sisters were only related by marriage & also he lived just down the road from us in Mawdesley, so I saw him almost daily.
His brother Cyril was born in 1901 & all the others were younger, I used to take my mother to visit Gertie & Lucy. Of the remaining siblings only Cyril married & he didn't have any children so the line died out when cousin Francis died in 1996. From leaving school, presumably at age 13 until aged about 45 -50 he worked on the family farm in Shevington, from about 1950 he worked at the Royal Ordnance Factory in Euxton nr Chorley until he retired.
Paradise Farm in Shevington was sold for building & Vin, Gertie & Lucy retired to a large house in Newburgh nr Parbold. Gertie was the last to die approx 1990.
I'm nearly sure, but can't be 100% certain, that Teresa Valentine's brother married John Ainscoughs sister Mary - so that's another line to go down!! never ends
