The will of Edmund Atherton of Winstanley names Elizabeth as his wife, Humphrey as his son and Edmunds daughters were Anne,Margaret and Elizabeth.
Also names brother in law Roger Molinoux.
Not an easy hand to read , but the names stand out.
Edmunds will was probated in Chester in 1614 . Thats correct for a Lancashire will at this time.
Forget about Preston. No Athertons are recorded there in this period . It was a small port, but Bristol would be the probable port of departure for America.
