Just found out today that I am descended from William FARNWORTH and Ann LAITHWAITE who married in Nov 1775 in Wigan.
Ann LAITHWAITE was bapt Jun 22 1746, d/o John LAITHWAITE and Elizabeth WAITE as far as I can tell. William FARNWORTH was born abt 1750 in Wigan, s/o John FARNWORTH and Ellen LAITHWAITE. John LAITHWAITE appears to be the son of Ralph LAITHWAITE, all of Wigan.
At this point, I have no idea how or even IF, Ann and Ellen LAITHWAITE connect?
Ann & Wm's daughter, Ellen FARNWORTH married Robert BILSBURY / BILBOROUGH in Wigan in 1810.
