From what i can gather there are two sets of Hornby's in Horwich, my lot living at Pearl Brook Cottage, working as carter's and the others, your lot being at Walsuches/Bottom of the Moor where there is a bleach works. My lot came from Rivington about 3 miles north where they had been hand loom weavers up until late 1850's/1860.
I would be very grateful for any info that you have and I have info on Walsuches which I would have to send by snail mail.
