COWELL - Chorley, Lancs
Posted by: Karen Harrison (ID *****5564) Date: January 14, 2003 at 03:23:12
  of 781

William COWELL b. abt 1810
married Margaret NORRIS on 12 Dec 1830 at Standish

Children of William and Margaret:
Elizabeth b. abt 1832
James b. abt. 1835
John B b. 3 Sept 1838
Hannah b. 12 Aug 1841 in Chorley, Lancs.

Hannah married George WESTWELL in 1860 in Chorley, then after George's death ca. 1871 she married a William WILSON (formerly of Lanarkshire) in Allegheny Co., PA.

Hannah & William moved back to Chorley ca. 1874.

In 1841, William Cowell & family were living on Hollingshead Rd in Chorley. A couple of doors away were the following family (who I believe *may* be William COWELL's parents):

James COWELL - 55 - Calico Printer - Y
Ann COWELL - 55 - Y
Henry COWELL - 20 - Calico Printer - Y
Ellen COWELL - 45 - Cotton Weaver - Y
Sarah COWELL - 15 - Cotton Weaver - Y
