Primarily I am researching the Hitchen family of Wigan, Pemberton, Ince and Blackrod but some spouses have come from different areas such as Platt Bridge and Farnworth. Ronald Hitchen: 1939-1974, he married Nancy O’Malley in Blackburn 1965, was killed in car crash in Blackburn in 1974. William Hitchen married Hilda Sumners in 1936 in Wigan, Hilda died in 1946. William Hitchen, remarried a Florence Phoebe Worthington, (Rostron), in 1950 in Ince and then moved to Blackrod.

Maud Hitchen (1905-1939), married a John Fish in 1936 in Pemberton, Wigan, they had two or more children, John Fish 1937 and Clifford Fish in 1936. Clifford went on to marry Betty Bradley and they had a child called Annette in 1958. Florence Phoebe Rostron married a James Worthington in 1928 and had a son John Worthington in 1929 in Platt Bridge, Hindley.
