POUNDER family in Burnley
I am from Bolton and my grandmother being a POUNDER. They came from North Yorkshire in the 19th Century. Middleton Tyas > Kirkby Moorside > Stokesley Over the years I have often seen Pounders in Burnley but never seen a link. There is no longer anyone from my family, with the Pounder surname, in the Bolton area. But I was looking last night at the website that checks distribution of surnames and there were still 47 in Burnley, as many as some places in the North East where more could be expected. Wondering if anyone related to these POUNDER on here and whether they know anything of their originas. MB
Finding Williams relatives
My Williams relatives originally from Cornwall settled in Burnley and are listed on the 1881 census at 14 Fairburn St.Thomas Williams the head died aged 44 in 1878. Widow Mary J Williams and their seven children are listed in the census.As a point of interest we have Norse/Viking Y Dna.I would really like to contact any possible relatives.Gerry.
My grand parents were Hartley SHACKLETON and Mary Catherine NORMANTON both from Burnley. They married in 1902. My father James Robert was born in 1903 and his brother, Christopher, in 1907. He and his wife may have split up around 1911. They had a son Harry Ashworth SHACKLETON born in 1912 and a further son, Albert, in 1915. Mary Catherine died in 1916. Harry A. and Albert both seem to vanish from the records after that. Hartley was a "territorial" and he was recalled to the East Lancashire regiment in 1914. He went on to serve at Gallipoli and survived that and the war but was estranged from my father. I can find no marriage or death records that match Harry A. or Albert SHACKLETON after their births. Could they have been adopted either formally or informally with consequent name change? Can anyone help, please?
Several members of my family (DAWE) moved from Yorkshire to Lancashire, settling mostly in Burnley and Briersfield, as verified by the 1881 - 1911 census records. From this point some of them travelled to Canada and the US. Others stayed in England. John Harris, his wife Jane Dawe and some of their children were buried in a Burnley Cemetery. Would like to hear from anyone who may be a descendant, have knowledge of any family member, or be knowledgeable about the area. Thanks.

red mail Albert Arthur Lloyd (1869-1945) grocer
Hi My great grandfather, Albert Arthur Lloyd (DoB 28.10.1869) was born and brought up in Bolton and started his career in the grocery trade there. In 1891 (at the age of 21) he was recorded on the National Census as being a grocers manager boarding at 24 Richton Lane in Bolton. I presume he would have started work at the age of 13 or 14 as a grocers assistant and worked his way up. As a manager, he would most likely have been working either for a co-operative grocery store or one of the developing multiples rather than for an independent store. I understand that by 1909, more than 75% of grocery stores in Bolton were part of the co-operative movement and that co-operative stores were renowned for educating and advancing their young employees. 21 was, I would have thought, quite a young age to be a grocery store manager in those days and this is why I suspect that Albert Arthur Lloyd may well have been a co-operative grocery store employee. By 1901 he had moved to Burnley and by 1924 - probably earlier - had his own independent grocery store (called "The Canister" I believe) at 138 Colne Road. I understand that co-operative grocery stores were also well-established in Burnley, and it may be that he transferred from Bolton to Burnley to manage a co-operative grocery store there before setting up in business himself. I'm trying to find out more about his early career in Bolton and his store in Burnley and particularly if he was a co-operative or multiple grocery store employee in Bolton and/or Burnley and, if so, the particular stores he worked in. I seem to have exhausted the research I can do from a distance and personal circumstances prevent me from trtavelling to the local records myself. Does anyone living in Bolton or Burnley have any knowledge of the history of the grocery trade in these towns and/or familiarity with local records? If so I'd appreciate any help they might be able to offer. Gordon
