Thanks Geoff.


Three of the daughters on a side branch of BALL family probably married but the name is too common to be sure we are tracing the right one. Example:

Ann BALL Bap 17 Jun 1855 Lowton, Lancashire

Births Jun 1855
Ball Ann Leigh 8c 146


Marriages Jun 1875
BALL Ann Bolton 8c 505
Calderbank Ann Bolton 8c 505
PARKINSON Thomas Bolton 8c 505
Syron John Bolton 8c 505

Marriages Sep 1875
BALL Ann Leigh 8c 278
Glover George Henry Leigh 8c 278
Hanesworth Kate Leigh 8c 278
RIGBY Thomas Leigh 8c 278

Trying to eliminate some by finding if they were born in RD Leigh or not.

No birth reg for an Ann CALDERBANK in Leigh. Wigan, Chorley, Preston, Bolton

I'm hoping only one Ann will show born Golborne or Lowton.

I think Ann BALL married John Syron and showed as born Bolton.

That seems to point to Glover or Rigby. I've not matched those 4 yet.

The closest match for Ann in the 1861 census is b. 1855 Leigh.. It covers Golborne and Lowton.
Thanks Geoff.

So Ann the niece 6 shows born Leigh?


I've looked at Glover and Rigby and can't find a match with Ann born abt 1855.

Looks as though it's not any of those 1875 marriages.
