  Comments Hello, I have come to Bolton/Wigan to do research on a Canadian/ British folk hero who came from Wigan. His name was Joseph "Joe" Naylor. I know he was born on August 12, 1872 in Wigan. He died 5th October 1946 in Cumberland, British Columbia, Canada. If this is your relative, then I am absolutely dying to speak with you about him. My email is Karlie.Banville@gmail.com.If you know anything, if you think you know anything, I would so appreciate you contacting me. Joe Naylor is an important part of Canadian history, and I can't let him fade into nothing. I have one photo of him that I am happy to share, if it helps. Thanks for your time.

  Comments Re.Island Row I remember in the 1940's the whole area was subject to flooding due to the brook that ran along the side and front of these houses,maybe this was the origin of the name.

  Comments Thanks Rolyat. I did see cottages called Island Row on WW & wondered if The Island might have been that area. Looking on old maps the land there does look as if it was a sort of island, cut off by the canal, railway lines etc

  Comments I wonder if anyone out there could help me.
My Prescott/Dawson family history shows on the 1861 census that John Dawson & his family were living at...The Island, Ince in Makerfield.....John Dawson was a plate layer on the railway.
Obviously the address, The Island does not exist today but does anyone know where it might have been ?
