Lancashire archive visit
« on: Sunday 08 April 18 23:01 BST (UK) »
Hi
I'm not sure if this is the place for this, or indeed if it is allowed to ask.....I was wondering if anyone if anyone goes to a Lancashire archives in Preston if they could look up a document for me and get a scan or photocopy and scan for me at all.  I can ask them directly but it seems quite expensive for one document.
If anyone goes there and is happy to do so PM me. The reference is QSP/2751/82  and the document entitled “Windle. Order of filiation and maintenance of Thomas, bastard child of Samuel Pickavance, watchmaker, and Jane Pickavance, singlewoman.”  I'd been looking for the baptism of Thomas my Gx5 Grandfather for a long time before coming across this document which matches him perfectly.
Cheers

You may not be aware but anyone taking a copy for you with a camera will need to pay a £10 daily camera charge  ;)    :)

You may find something in the Lancashire quarter sessions records on FamilySearch (need to be logged in).
Order Books, including 1818-19 are available, they include bastardy orders
This lands you somewhere in 1819 I think

I was just searching from your first link, and found it, just as your second message came in.  THank you so much for that, I didn't know those records were held there. 
There must be another one somewhere because the title of the document mentions the childs name Thomas, and that particular entry doesn't though is definitely my people.  Thanks so mouch for that info.
