Hughes family

According to the 1911 census, my grandfather John William Hughes was born in Royton Lancashire about 1884 his birthday being 10th January. On JWH's wedding certificate (Goole 1905) he gives his father's name as John (deceased).

My father had tried to get more information from him but commented "He told me, his mother (maiden name Jenny Graham) came from St Helier Jersey, where her father was the only shoemaker on Jersey Island- but as far as I can gather with the little things he used to say, the Graham family originated in Scotland as did his father. "

I have not been able to get any farther than this.

Can anyone cast some light on the subject?
