I am after some general information on how populated Pemberton would be on the late 1600's. I have a map from the Museum of Wigan Life dated 1840 ( I think ), that shows the small area of Lamberhead Green, together with a number of houses along what is now Ormskirk Road, but little else. Does anyone out there, maybe with ancestors from Pemberton, know what was there in the late 1600's ?
Background is I have traced my line back to Pemberton, 1700 onwards, but as I move further back, all the evidence suggests a connection with a family at Burtonwood, Warrington. My question would be, if this is my family, why did they move across?
Any info, and any opinions, would be welcome.
