  Comments Traced ancestors back to Wigan in 1800 where they seemed to be fairly high society. Coal mine owner, property owner and sons became doctor and lawyer on King Street in 1820's.

  Comments Thank you - this is a wonderful find. Some time ago I discovered my 3xg.grandfather, Thomas Snape and his wife Nancy brought up their family in Billinge from 1770 but have only recently discovered that Nancy's surname was Martlew and they married in Ashton in Makerfield and had 2 children before moving to Billinge.
Some of those wonderful old buildings look as if they were there way back then.
I'm having a wonderful time browsing. Thanks again.
