Likewise I looked at parish records and found evidence of the baptism of an Edward AINDOW around 1798 but then also found record of his death before 1800 and no other baptism entry for Edward in Formby records however I have in my possession a reference to a will sent to me a while back by another AINDOW researcher details as follows: " AINDOW William Husbandman died 9th feb 1833 will dated June 1814 Stepson John Bradshaw Brother John AINDOW labourer. Land leased from Charles Blundell of Ince Blundelland Richard Formby of Formby .Wife was Betty and was left £20. house had a parlour and well. Goods included plate linen and china.After wifes death goods to be converted into money and divided into 9 parts for brother ANTHONY's children, Richard, Margaret, Alice, EDWARD, John, Anthony, Henry and Jane and my son Thomas Aindow/ share when they are 21"
Brother John and Thomas Rimmer were executors and witnesses Robet NORRIS, William RIMMER and James NORRIS
This I would say proves that Anthony had a living son called Edward.
