Lancashire (UK) Cort families
I am still researching my CORT ancestry in Lancashire, England and have been lucky enough to link up with several other related researchers.
My CORTs have been traced back to around 1769 in Bolton area and another researcher's family is from Blackburn.
We all think that both groups originally came from slightly further north around the villages of Tatham, Bentham and Melling etc which are east of Lancaster. There also seem to be connections with CORTs just over the county border in west Yorkshire near Skipton.
I shall be pleased to hear anyone linked to these areas. Feel welcome to read about my CORTs at:
