Wigan Peet family of Lancashire.
I'm trying to go back as far as I can with my grandfather's family who originated in Wigan. The information I have so far is:
Herbert Stanley Peet and his brother Arthur Reginald Peet born in Stretham London 1897 and 1895 respectively.
Their father, Reginald Henry Peet, a Telegraph Engineer, was born 1857 in Lambeth, London.
His father, Henry Peet, was born in Wigan on 11/04/1821. He was a mining agent and was married to Henrietta Jane ???? (born in Thatcham, Berkshire).
His parents were John Peet (born Wigan 10/03/1799) and married to Anne Newsham on 10/01/1814 in Wigan.
Richard Peet was his father and was married to Mary Fisher, and I have no information as to their dates.
I suspect that an ancestor of theirs was another Henry Peet who married Lucia Hobson on 03/08/1752 in Wigan.
I would be very interested if anyone out there has any information regarding the gaps in my research, and would especially be happy to communicate with anyone whose own family dovetails with mine
