They look a very well to do family. I suppose they would have to be to have photograph taken so early.
You have a point there Tom but I don't know whether they were well off. Sam, whose wife Ellen was my gt grandmother's sister, was a joiner who did work at All Saints. You can see Samuel Hall's peal board in the bell-ringing room in a series of photos in Wigan Parish Church section of the New Gallery taken by Brian.
My grandfather was james hall and lived in dorning street was a patten maker at walkers later walmsleys had a walking stick with gold top presented to his father for bell ringing at parish church
I wonder if I’m related , all my family on the Hall side were from Appley Bridge . My Grandfather was Eric Hall who had the brick works till it closed down. My father was Tony Hall. I think my great Grandfather was called John Hall.....other family were the Sharrocks and Kenyons . Anyone out there know any of these names?
