Hello Edward, I was browsing theough the Farnworth forum and came across your message about Farnworth of Chorley posted some time ago.
I too have Farnworth- Chorely connection. My grandmother was Alice Ethel Farnworth, born 2 April 1887, 255,256 Moor Road, Chorley. Her dad was Daniel Farnworth of 130 Moor Rd Chorley and her mum was Mary Culshaw 290 Moor Rd Chorley. Daniel and Mary Married in 1880 at St Gregory's Catholic Church, Weldbank, Chorley. Daniel's father was John Farnworth a Calico Printer.
A number of the Farnworth family migrated to New Zealand in the late 19th and early 20th century.
I have very little information about the Farnworth family. Kind regards Cynthia Piper
