Thanks Nigel

That was really interesting, amazing how a village could support two breweries

The Malthouse was situated between the two

Hi Nigel Walmsley,
I hope you're still on this site.
I am related to the Maltsters of Longton. The very affluent Wilkins family lived in The Golden Ball and Plumpton House on Marsh Lane, Longton and Grove House which had 6 acres on Liverpool Old Road (Now demolished for housing). They were well respected and helped the poor. They employed about 12 people and owned 3 farms in Hoole. I have the addresses. They also owned 30 houses.
I have a whole family tree and hope you get in touch with me.
My name is Jan Farnworth (nee Wilkins)
