‘LOCK UP YOUR BOSS’- Ainscough in jail!!

Dad has been in touch again with the following link - seems James Ainscough of Ainscough Crane Hire and a colleague have recently found themselves in trouble with the Law - not really!- it looks to have been both a fun and extremely successful charity raising event.....well done to all involved!
I just find it uncanny how alike Elvis James A looks......Im sure his ancestors would be proud of him.

Found your wonderful site some time back. My greatfather, Peter Ainscough was from Bolton, Lancashire. Born 21May1856? Married Hannah Partington(16 Nov 1856-April 1926) They came to states in 1881 with 3 children. The oldest Thomas was my grandfather. Came over on the ship City of Rome.
Family settled in Tennessee. Peter died 9 JUN 1954 at 98 yrs old. not bad for a coal miner. Thomas m. Lillie Grace Ritter in 1900, came to Indiana thereafter. They had 11 children. 7 girls and 4 boys. My mother Rita was one of the daughters. Am interested in finding Peter's and Hannah's parents and anything else to help.
Ray Beeker--Bloomington Indiana USA.

PS the last remaining child of Thomas and Lillie will be 90 in Oct. and all nieces and nephews will be helping Uncle Porter Ainscough celebrate.

Hi Nancy
its been some time (Dec 2006) since you sent your information in (italics below), you might be able to help Ray and Catherine here (see email below) - it seems you share the Hannah Partington link.

...I am so grateful you wrote. I have had such a tough time with my husbands ainscough family living here in the US. I had gotten back as far as a Thomas Ainscough born in Lostock, Lancashire, England between 1821-1825, we believe he was married to a Hannah Dickenson b. Great Bolch or Bolton, England
His children were John, Rosette, Mary, Helen "Ellen", Peter, Thomas, William, James Huey and Hannah. Nothing much yet on their spouses except for Peter who married Hannah "Anna" Partington. They are buried in Coalfield, Tennesee; John who married Elizabeth Bramley; Mary who married a John Roscow or Samuel Darbyshire.

Peter Ainscough b. 21 may 1856 Lostock, Lanchashire, England and Hannah Partington b. bet 1856-1858 Possibly in Westhoughton, Lancashire, England were married 10 Jun 1876 iBolton, Le Moors, Lancashire, England, they had a Thomas, John, Ellen, Margaret, Hannah "Anna", Sarah Alice, Peter, Henry, all were born in the States except for Thomas, John and Ellen.
I am hoping more Ainscough decendants start adding to more genealogy sites on the net.

Ray - on my blog simply type Partington into the search box - top left to find all posts with relevant info. in. There is also a reference to an Elizabeth Partington in a blog of Feb 2008 - could she be related? Hope this helps.
Let me know how you get on.
