Please don't ask for personal advice from the Lancashire WWW page maintainer, as frequently I don't not have the local knowledge that you require, or the time to provide such a service. If the information you want is not on the page, then I don't have it.

I have not been able to find any time in the last five years to do my own research, so please don't ask me to do any research for you as if I replied the answer would unfortunately be NO.

Help with surnames

The first place you should look if you are interested in a particular surname, is the Guild of One Name Studies. The GOONS members collect and research information about all occurrences of the particular surname they are researching.

The other source of place to look is the surname lists that individuals maintain for particular locations. Have a look at the Lancashire surname lists
