James Bolton Orton/Musgrave
« on: Thursday 30 July 15 15:28 BST (UK) »
I wonder if anyone can help me with this query
According to census returns James Bolton was born 1779/81 in Musgrave. However a Settlement Certificate says his lawful place of settlement was Orton [he lived with his wife and family in Warton, Lancs ]
Has anyone access to either of these villages parish records so as to confirm which entry is correct?

Thanks
