Hi,
A long shot but I'm wondering if anyone knows a woman called Eileen Ainscough, I think she is living in Platt bridge at the moment near St Nathaniels. She used to live in Mannion house in Scholes! A friend of the family whom we have lost touch with but we still get Christmas cards but have no information for her. Thanks

Hi. My grandfather was born in 1897 in Wigan. His name was Harry Hilton and his father was Thomas Hilton. I believe the year they immigrated to the US was 1901. Several brothers and sisters remained in Wigan. We are planning a trip to England in 2021 and will be visiting Wigan. Looking for the possibility of cousins in Wigan. Thanks much. Happy holidays.

He had two sisters.He was approximately 22 when I was born. He was about 5ft 7 and has brown eyes . He sometimes used an alias Derek Ferris. My mother’s name was Kathleen x I hope someone can help even with the smallest bit of information xx

Many family members were born in and around Wigan in the mid to late 1800s. I've been looking around the site trying to find streets or anything else that might match my family records.
No luck, but interesting seeing where we came from.

Hi everyone I moved from Wigan in 1991 after my dad passed away and I had to move to Cheshire to be with family. I'm now married and live with my wife in Ontario Oregon. I was born in poolstock then at age 5 moved to ashton-in-makerfield. I lived at 58 Bolton road then moved next door to the huge house at 60 Bolton road. I attended cansfield high school finishing in 1989. If anyone uses this site that remembers give me a holla it would be great to catch up. I miss Wigan the memories and all of my friends.
