The Recusant Rolls of people who were living in Garstang, near Preston, Lancashire, England in the 1760’sThere was a Bilsborrow family.They had only been resident in Garstang for 3 months when they had to Register.I think this family could possible be at the top of our tree because there are twins in the family - they are:
William Bilsborrow Farmer aged 48
Mary Bilsborrow wife aged 49
Alice Bilsborrow daughter aged 21
Jane Bilsborrow daughter aged 15
Henry Bilsborrow son aged 13*
Richard Bilsborrow son aged 9 )
Mary Bilsborrow daughter aged 9 )twins
* It seems likely that this Henry is our Henry - but itneeds researching further.
I have approximately 400 names on my family tree, of people who have descended from the above, so if there is anybody out there who is related to the above I should be pleased to hear from them.I know that there are families in the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
