Lancashire Families: Arkwright, Meadow, Fairhurst, Winnard of Wigan - and their Ancestors
I visited Preston and Leigh Archives this summer. Unfortunately, no brick walls were demolished: the ancestry of John Meadow c.1785-1832; the origins of the Arkwrights of Wigan; who was Charles Simpson, 1815 to ?? and what happened to him...all still mysteries. However there were some interesting discoveries.
All placenames are in Lancashire unless otherwise stated. Click on ARKPEDIGREE for a pedigree chart of the ancestors of Madeline Mary Arkwright. Family Group Sheets for those ancestors, and all other relatives, are on this page.
