William's burial showing abode of Walton-le Dale?

Burial: 13 Dec 1861 St John, Preston, Lancashire, England
William James Seed -
    Age: 5
    Abode: Walton le Dale
    Buried by: J. Wilson

Where did this record come from? I guess Walton le Dale is right side of Preston for Samlesbury. Iíll have to see if thereís a J Wilson anywhere. I know he had an Aunt married to a Hilton Wilson.

Lancashire Online Parish Clerks website (LAN OPC). J. Wilson would have been the clergyman who performed the funeral service.

I notice that there was a school at Old Hall Samlesbury. In 1861 there are boarders as young as 6. Maybe William James was sent here?

This is great - many thanks. Iíve been looking in local papers but obviously needed to look further afield. Now I wonder if the other children were sent there when their parents died. The school closed in 1862.

And when I check the death certificate, the informant is a '? Harrison in attendance Samlesbury'

Not quite conclusive, but a start...

Mary A Harrison was the head of the school.

Johan Pestalozzi is known as "the Father of Modern Education".
According to Wiki article on Salmesbury Hall Mary Harrison's school was a co-ed boarding school. The same article says that Joseph Harrison of Galligreaves Hall bought Samlesbury Hall in 1862.

Did Robert or his wife leave a will?

Coincidently, members of one of my Preston families were also corn-merchants and innkeepers and lived in Avenham Lane until 1830s. One married a doctor and they lived in the same street as the corn exchange.
