Hi - I am researching my family tree, my mother was a Beswick, Barabara BOB 22.4.47 she was the daughter of Benjamin Beswick B- 23.6.1910 d- 18.7.79 and Hilda Brown, they came from Atheron near Leigh, LAncasire.
Ben was one of four children born to John Beswick d- 18.3.1966 and Florence Wright Webb d- 28.1.1967.
I am currently only just starting on this famiy line. Though olders memebsr of teh Family believe that John Beswicks family originated in scotland when 4 of teh family moved to teh Noth West - I have to confirm this. I would be geteful if any one has any other information that might help. This Branch of the family seem to have been mainly in the Leigh, Tyldesley and Atherton areas and at one time very big in the local chamber of trade through there hardware business.
