My name is Michael Ainsworth, born 1937, and My Father, Percy Ainsworth was born 1890, in Blackburn, Lancashire, had two brothers and two sisters, surprise, surprise, they were all involved in the cotton Industry, which declined during "the slump". It would not be unreasonable to suggest that anyone with the surname Ainsworth, originated from the Bolton / Blackburn area. My Grand - Father may have been born around the same time as Thomas Ainsworth,- I shall have to investigate Edwin's birth date - If anyone remembers my dear Father, please would you be so kind as to refer to the above E-Mail address. Thankyou. Michael Ainsworth, Priors Hall, Thaxted, Essex. England.
