  Comments Emmerline, I am sorry no one better than me, has been able to help you with your query.
Have you looked at a website called 192 ?
It has a find people service. General enquiries show that the name Eileen Ainscough is listed in the Wigan area 5 times over the last few years.

  Comments Hi,
A long shot but I'm wondering if anyone knows a woman called Eileen Ainscough, I think she is living in Platt bridge at the moment near St Nathaniels. She used to live in Mannion house in Scholes! A friend of the family whom we have lost touch with but we still get Christmas cards but have no information for her. Thanks

  Comments Hi. My grandfather was born in 1897 in Wigan. His name was Harry Hilton and his father was Thomas Hilton. I believe the year they immigrated to the US was 1901. Several brothers and sisters remained in Wigan. We are planning a trip to England in 2021 and will be visiting Wigan. Looking for the possibility of cousins in Wigan. Thanks much. Happy holidays.

  Comments Many family members were born in and around Wigan in the mid to late 1800s. I've been looking around the site trying to find streets or anything else that might match my family records.
No luck, but interesting seeing where we came from.
