Notes / message: Looking for info on the Arkwright family based in Aspull in 1800's. I'm particularly keen to know about John Arkwright who was born in Durham. I don't know when he moved to Wigan but when he did he married Mary (Bradshaw) and had 6 children: Nathaniel, Thomas, Mary, Margaret, Alice and Alfred. In 1881 they were living at 37 Wigan Road, by 1901 they had moved to Cale Lane, but by then the 2nd son Thomas was married and living in Scot Lane with his wife Mary and a 2 month son John Alfred (who incidentally was also born in Durham).

Also I would like to know if the Nathaniel Arkwright who is buried in St David's, Haigh is related or is the name of John's eldest son just a coincidence.
Requiring help with these family names:
      John 1846
      John Alfred 1900/1
      Mary 1850
      Mary 1879
      Nathaniel 1874
      Nathaniel 1907
      Thomas 1876
