I live in St Gregory's parish, Weld Bank and my mother's name is Culshaw. The following should be of some help.
1. From Weld Bank marriage register:
23 Oct 1880 Daniel Farnworth of Moor Road, son of John Farnworth, married Mary Culshaw, daughter of Henry Culshaw of Coppull. Witnesses: William Culshaw of Skelmersdale; Mary Helen Culshaw of Skelmersdale. Priest: John (Dean) Lennon.
2. From 1881 census.
19 Ormskirk Rd, Skelmersdale, Lancashire.
Elizabeth Culshaw Head Widow 73 F Wrightington, Lancs
Ellen Culshaw Daur. Dressmaker Un 36 F Wrightington, Lancs
William Culshaw Son Coal Miner Un 28 M Coppull, Lancs
James Culshaw Gson Scholar 8 M Coppull, Lancs.
3. From 1871 census
Coppull Near Oak Tree
Henry Culshaw Head M 64 Tailor Wrightington
Elizabeth Culshaw Wife M 62 Wrightington
Ellen Culshaw Daur U 27 Dress Maker Wrightington
Elizabeth Culshaw Daur U 24 Servant Wrightington
William H Culshaw Son U 18 Collier Coppull
Mary Culshaw Daur U 15 Servant Coppull
William Shaw Boarder U 49 Tailor Isle of Man
I don't have the details of this family in my notes for the earlier censuses. Probably for the 1861 and 1851 censuses they were in Coppull and for 1841 in Wrightington as indicated by place of birth of the children, so they shouldn't be too difficult to find as these are quite small places.

That's about all I've got. Best wishes. Pauline Critchley.
