  Comments Does someone in your family have any of the following surnames; Sudworth, Scramell, Cooper, Greenhalgh, Orrell, Makinson, Hampson or Unsworth?
I've just started a website after months of tracing my family history.
Anyone who can shed some light on other branches of the family can contact me via the webpage.
Thanks,

  Comments Really interesting site, in the old pubs I've noticed you don't have the Boatmans Arms which was a pub on the canal in Abbedene. This was my Grandfathers local as a young man, he and his family had a transport company James Monk & Sons on the canal.
