Notes / message: I am researching the ancestors and descendants of my third great grandfather - William Molyneux. He was born on 27-December-1756; Ormskirk and married Margaret Marsh 21-January-1787 Wigan, Lancashire, England, and his parentís name were - Richard Molyneux and Jane. I am making good progress in locating many of William's descendants but I am not having much luck with his ancestors.

One of the major problems I have had with my Molyneux researches is that not only is the name Molyneux common in that part of Lancashire, so is Richard Molyneux and William Molyneux. To complicate matters further, the name is spelt, in so many different ways, even within the same family line. To date, in my tree alone, I have seen my name spelt Molyneux, Molyneaux, Molineux, Molineaux and sometimes, with two 'l's.

It is at this point that I have hit a solid brick wall. I have found several couples called Richard and Jane from around the same period but not definite proof that any of them is the couple I am looking for.
Requiring help with these family names:
      Mary b. 1698
      Richard m. 1717
      Richard b. 1681
      Edward b. 1699
