Biggles - how amazing that you and your wife share a DNA match.

I have just checked back on my Townends - Birstall and ended up in Liversedge. Funnily enough my earliest Townend (John b about 1713) -- married an Anne Preston.

This fits into the original theme of Rochdalians query - where 2 Lancashire town surnames married in Birstall (Lancaster and Blackburn). So I have another person with a Lancashire town surname (Preston) -- living in that area! There must have been a horse and coach trip over the Pennines!
West Yorks; ---- Illingworth, Marshall, Muffit/Muffett/Murfitt, Barber, Sanderson, Townend, Barraclough, Lister -- and lots more. Locations mainly in Birstall parish - Hartshead-- Drighlington --Adwalton --Mirfield - Heckmondwike --Kippax - Sherburn in Elmet.

Ireland ------Cleary, Whelan - Nenagh.
Dowling - Monasterevin
Daly - Westmeath

Lancashire ---- Smith from Alston , Johnson and Fairclough---- Tarleton and loads more from Tarleton and Accrington areas.

Finding the shared DNA match with my Wife was surreal, I clicked on DNA and it showed photo images of eight matches to my Wife, I then clicked to change the DNA matches to me and one of the images stayed the same.

My Wife has town/village names, Osbaldeston, Houghton, Radcliffe, Mellor, Preston, Astley, and one local to Rochdale namely Bamforth in her tree.

Whilst I have Broughton and Heysham.

I wonder if that's some sort of record for the number of obvious place names in someone's ancestry!

It is sort of sad that I remembered those names without having to look them up.
