Wigan Parish Records Look-up.
« on: Friday 28 August 09 11:50 BST (UK) »
Hi,
Please does anyone have access to Wigan parish records? I'm trying to find a baptism for my GGGrandfather, who was born in Ince c.1830.
His mother's name was Martha, but I have no record for his father. I know it's a long shot, but I'd be very grateful if anyone can find anything.
Thanks.

I've tried that site and the Ince records haven't been transcribed yet.

Most of the churches in Ince were not there in 1830 which is why the records have not been transcribed.  It would be best to look at other Wigan churches.

Sorry for the delay in replying. I have been away.
Of course, I should have said - my g.grandfather's name was Alfred Ellison.
Thanks for the info re Ince churches. I'll try looking at other Wigan churches.

Hello

There's an entry on IGI:

Alfred Ellison 1832, Ince, mother Martha Ellison.
This suggests that he could have been illegitimate, as they usually mention the father's name.

There's a Family History Centre in Wigan.  Unfortunately I don't know the address but if you contacted Wigan Council they might be able to point you in the right direction.  They may have copies of the parish records.

Good luck

The entries on the IGI are put on by members of the church and are not taken from the registers.  They may not be true and are probably deduced from census records
