Many thanks for your reply Chris. I have been trying to verify further info on my Cottam's but unable at present. Working on it. William and Elizabeth's dates could fit but not burial location as yet. Will note your records and hopefully one day the Lancashire Cottam's will all tie in together. My problem is that most male Lancashire Cottam's seem to be named either William, John or Thomas - all of whom I'm looking for as they are apparently sons of Henry Cottam.
