Hi Carole, I have just sent Deb some informationfrom the 1881 Census re: David Farnworth of Preston. I have also located your Nathan Farnworth on the 1881 and I hope you find this information of use. I actually come from Horwich, about 50 yards away from where Nathan and Ann were married. Blackrod is a village about a mile from Horwich.
NATHAN FARNWORTH, head, grocer, 57yrs. born Blackrod Lancs.
ANN FARNWORTH, wife, 53yrs. born Horwich Lancs.
HENRY FARNWORTH, son, clogger, unmarr. 29yrs. born Horwich
ELLEN FARNWORTH, daur. unmarr. grocer assistant, 25yrs. born Halliwell
DAVID FARNWORTH, son, bleacher(cott), 17yrs. born Halliwell
MARGARET ANN FARNWORTH, daur, bleacher(cott), 16yrs. born ?
THOMAS FARNWORTH, son, cotton mill worker, 14yrs. born Halliwell
I have also found a David Farnworth born 1825 living in Blackrod. He is probably Nathan's brother. Would you like these details? There are several other Farnworth families in Blackrod who are probably related in some way. Do you know this area at all? I am sure I could give you further information if you are interested.
