I have found a richard pilkington born around 1807 he had five children, one of whom was called John Pilkington born 1843 in Lancashire, and one of his sisters was called margaret pilkington born around 1831. One of the brothers was called RObert Pilkington born around 1833, and i think he may be my great, great, great, grandfather. If he is he would have had a son called Robert Pilkington born around 1865 then a grandson called RObert Pilkington born in 1901. That would in some way make me related to the margaret pilkington posted on this forum. does anyone have any information about pilkingtons who moved to the South West (Bridgwater in Somerset in particular). I do know that either my great, great, great grandfather or my great great great great grandfather started the pilkington glass company and that my nan (Rita Pilkington now Jones) was disassociated from the family and written out of the business because of her choice of husband! Any info would be very very gratefully recived!!
