Don't suppose anyone has access to parish record? I am looking for James Prescott's father.

James Prescott married Mary Bolton on 13th Oct 1751 at the church of St Peter and St Paul at Ormskirk. I believe James was a shoe maker.

Possible father might be Thomas. Possibly from Kirkby originally.

Yes I have read it. I think James was born in 1738 in Kirkby and father was Thomas. James and Mary lived in Burscough, but I think probably moved back to Kirkby after a while.

I know he had a son Thomas who married a Dorothy Harrison. However cannot find a marriage. They lived in Kirkby. All their children were baptised there. Later certain members of the family were on the canal with their main base being Burscough.

But unless I can be sure the James in Kirkby is the same James in Burscough I am stuck.

Thanks I've read those. My only thought with the William entry is that James is a little old when he marries Mary and also there are no children baptised William either in James and Mary's children or future family names.

Children of James and Mary are
Ann 21 Aug 1752 Burscough
Hannah 8th Mar 1754 Burscough
Thomas 13 Dec 1761 Burscough
James 27 May 1764 Burscough

and possibly
John 9 June 1776 Lathom
