Good to see your message - I (Steve 1947) have been researching Uglows for about 5 years now and there are a couple others lie me - notably John 1921 in Thorverton in Devon and Bill in Lincoln. We've gleaned quite a lot of information.
Are you Norman who lives at 7 Mossdale Rd Manchester 23 (0161) 998 6287 and who married a Miss Vaun (Vaughan?) in 1952?
I think that your great-grandfather was John George 1844born in Warbstow, the son of George and Mary Jenkins and the grandson of John and Jenny Chapman In 1851 he is still in Warbstow but moves to Lancashire. he is a cordwainer and in 1868 he marries Elizabeth in Chorlton. The census in 1881 tells us that Elizabeth was born in 1848 (32) in Manchester. They live at 18 Moorhouse St. Salford. She dies in 1901 (55) and John George in 1909, both in Salford RD.
Your grandfather would be their son Frederick William1876 who marries a Miss Bradbury in 1898 - Frederick Williamdies in 1939. Their son, your father?, is also Frederick William, born 1899 and dies 1981. But at this point my database is running out of information.
You can go back further if you have access to the internet - go to www.uglow.co.uk/lancashire.htm and look at Family 2.
I hope this is somewhere near correct and that you can fill in some of the blanks. Look forward to hearing from you.
