I am researching Volney Wilkinson (b Burnley 1845) and Volney Asten (Aston?) (b Burnley 1841). This research is part of a project looking at the influence of the French freethinker, Comte de Volney, whose writings inspired many working people in the US and the UK to the extent that geographical features and children were named after him. If there is anyone out there who has information about the parents of these Volneys or about the material available in working men's reading rooms and circulating libraries in Lancashire or elsewhere in the 18th and 19th C, I'd be extremely grateful if they would get in touch
