Elliott Family Blackburn Lancashire England


New member
Hi, I hope someone reading this can help,

I have just started to build my family tree and have so far managed to get back to my gg grandfather, who I know was born in Blackburn in 1846. but I am unable to trace any further details or get further back.

The info I have is that he was called John Elliott, born in 1846, married to Elizabeth, (born 1844, I think) and had 4 children. George, Maggie, Leonard and Herbertbetween 1856 and 1879.

If any can assist or knows where I can obtain further info I would be grateful
