  Comments Loved the info in the directories of 1869 and 1881, I actually found references to the Dawber family for the first time. I'm also interested in the Oldfields who had a brewery in Wigan in the 1880s.

  How did you find wiganworld?    Google search on 'Higher Ince'
  Comments A very enjoyable few hours with your page. I left Higher Ince in 1960 aged 19 yrs. Done family tree searching in Scholes and Lancs. Over 1000 names in my family tree, including dozens of Wigan surnames and a 20 year study of the BOOTLE surname.
I have replied to some of the entries and would be happy to exchange information with others.

  Comments This site has helped me appreciate the greatness of our town, wigan is finally getting the recognition is deserves, after the burough achieved the excellent status in the latest inspections. Glad to see pictures of Angers as i was told so much about it at school but never saw it, so cheers! Plus what am glad to see is development, the arcade plan looks good, i hope more buildings are developed over the upcoming years to give wigan even more character and status
will be back regularly
