Joseph Shackleton born 1813 in Lomishaw, Colne
My GGGrandfather,on my mother's side, Joseph Shackleton, was born in Lomishaw, Colne in 1813, he was woolcomber by trade. In the 1851 census he was living in Bradford, Yorkshire and was working as an overlooker. I cannot find much about exactly where Lomishaw was/is. Was it an area of big mills or just cottage industries. I guess Shackleton was quite a common name even in that period of time.

Looking for ancestors of Hargreaves Holgate born about 1846, son of Mary born in Colne about 1805.

There is a gap of around 200 years in the middle and a Samuel Hargreaves Hartley Holgate married in 1872 in Ashton under Lyne. Clues would be much appreciated, Hargreaves Holgate is my husband's great-grandfather and we have his name as the bride's father on his daughter Amy Annie Holgate's marriage certificate from 1907. HH died in 1923 in Birkenhead.
