My ancestor was one Randel Hill, born 1738 at Pemberton, where he apparently spent his life as a weaver. He died in 1804, and the parish record, which is very neatly hand written, shows his abode as " Whirley ". Has anyone heard of such a place ? The only thing I can think of is it is a mis pronunciation of Whelley, written as Whirley.
Any ideas ?
