red mail Corcoran/Ormshaw
I am hoping to make contact with some of my father's family. John Patrick Corcoran was born in Ashton-in-Makerfield in May 1914. (lived at 14 Bryn Road). He had a sister Elizabeth Ellen (Nellie.) Their parents were John Patrick Corcoran (b1885 in Cloonfad I believe,Ireland) and Mary Jane (nee Ormshaw b1884 Ashton in Makerfield). John Patrick Sr was a colliery electrician. The family came to New Zealand around 75/80 years ago. (they returned to the UK for a short period, but did come back and settle in New Zealand).

If anyone can help me with any information - especially tracking down Nellie's child (a boy I think) I would be grateful. Kind regards

red mail Fairhurst Duckworth
My Great Grandfather James Duckworth b1871 married Eliza Fairhurst b1874 at Bartholomews Church, Westhoughton in 1894. They had 4 children Martha, Henry (Harry), Thomas and Violet. I cannot trace Eliza's family as there were many Fairhursts in that area at the time. Her father's name and profession is missing from the marriage certificate but it does show that James and Eliza shared the same address at the time of marriage. Around 1906 James and the 4 children moved across country to Northumberland where he and his new wife (partner?)also from Ashton in Makerfield / Westhoughton area, had four more children. The second wife was also called Eliza but nee Simmons. I can not find a death date for the first Eliza Duckworth nee Fairhurst and divorce was very uncommon in those days. Can anyone help? It sounds like it could be a well kept family secret or a scandal of the time?! All help in tracing Eliza Fairhurst and her family would be greatly appreciated.

I have found seven children for James & Esther HEATON (5 from parish records & 2 from the census - I've not found the 2 children from the census in parish records as yet): Jane b:10/04/1826, bapt:10/04/1826.

I've not been able to find a baptism for Ellen (although I've found baptisms for all her siblings). I don't think she was baptised at St. Thomas' (A-in-M) or Holy Trinity (A-in-M).
