Winstanley's of Ormskirk and Pendlebury/Pendleton(Salford) Lancs
« on: Wednesday 17 April 13 00:30 BST (UK) »
I am actively seeking information regarding the Winstanley family, the father Walter Harold being born in Ormskirk (1876).  One of his daughters Jessie Elizabeth born 1910 in Pendlebury, Manchester happens to have married my father in 1932 and was his 1st wife.  They had a baby daughter in the 1930's (exact date edited by Moderator) and Jessie sadly died in childbirth , they called the baby  Barbara J (maybe be  Barbara Jessie).  Barbara is the half sister myself and siblings never knew existed as our father married our mother 3 years later and we were never told about his previous marriage and daughter!  I have discovered details of her whilst tracing the family tree.

Did you go to school with a Barbara J Jones?  Do you know of her?  Does anyone have any photos of her or know of her current whereabouts?  I would love to know more about her and meet her but i am having difficulty tracing her.  Any information would be appreciated.  Thanks!

Winstanley Walter Harold  .North Meols.North Sefton .mothers maiden name DANDY  NM/35/139

So Walter was born just outside Southport although Ormskirk would be Registration Office

might I suggest you delete Barbaras details - Rootschat doesn`t encourage details of living people ...this is Rootschat Policy

William Winstanley aged 20 a Stonemason of 101 Upper King St ,Southport
Elizabeth Dandy aged 28 Spinster of 91 Upper King St ,Southport
grooms father - James Winstanley,Stonemason
brides father Richard Dandy - Labourer
witness John Adams   Anne Dandy

Elizabeth Dandy baptised 13th January 1839 at Christ Church,Southport
father Richard Dandy - mother Mary Ann
