HURST FAMILY OF WIGAN.
I am trying to trace my Hurst family forebears pre civil registration. I have James Hurst (b Lancs circa 1790) According to census records his wife was Margaret (b 1789 Lancs). I can't find their marriage. their children were all born in Wigan - Thomas, James (1817) and William (1821) Neither can I find the marriage of their son Thomas (b 1811 Wigan) to Charlotte Mason (b circa 1806 Wigan). I believe the family were RC. Any help/advice gratefully received!
