Thanks Dave, I dont know where Barnsley St is, but they were probably still in business then as I think the son took over, I think his name is/was Richard, but i'm not sure.

geraldine,that information would fit in with the butcher in Whelley. He had a son named John of that age,I am not sure but I think he did have a younger sister. He went to St. Stephens and Wigan grammar school, but that is all that I can add to the topic.
