John Henry Riley 1846-1921 lancashire
« on: Saturday 25 April 15 18:37 BST (UK) »
Hi,  I have traced my family name back to John Henry Riley by using :

http://www.lan-opc.org.uk/Search/indexp.html

I can seem to get any further back.  His father was called George Riley but that's as much as I can find out from the link attached

Can anyone help?

Hi and welcome to Rootschat

The link given is to the general search page so doesn't tell us where he was born.  What was his mothers name?

Do you have him on the 1851 census with his parents?

There is a John Riley b 1846 Haslingden on the 1851 parents George & Elizabeth and another b 1845 Over Darwen parents George & Alice
