Altrincham in 17C and 18C
Please, is there a knowledgeable local historian who could give me an idea of what Altrincham was like in 17C and 18C? I have found forebears who came from Bristol but lived in Altrincham. I have JOSEPH VIGOR who was baptised in Bowdon in 1656. The Vigors were a Quaker family. His father had come from Bristol but had married a widow
Dorothy Jeanes nee GLEAVE of High Leigh. Any ideas of the size and importance of Altrincham in those days would be hugely appreciated.
