Taylor Family – Oswaldtwistle, Rishton and Church.

Taylor Family – Oswaldtwistle, Rishton and Church.

I am looking for decedents of William and Rachel Taylor who at the time of the 1901 Censes where living at Far Holmes Cottage, Rishton. This location is just past where the Filter Beds where situated for the Oswaldtwistle UDC Sewage Works between the Church Kirk Bridge and the Weir on the canal at Rishton.

William and Rachel had four children at the time of the 1901 censes; John age 17, George age 15, Elizabeth age 11 and Thomas age 3 years. I would welcome contact from any surviving decedents of any of the family. I am the Great Grandson of Elizabeth Taylor, “later Birtwistle”.

One important point of note which may aid researchers is that the 1901 Censes wrongly states that the name of the family at Far Holmes in 1901 is given as Daylor. This is an error at the time that the Censes was taken.

There must be a number of relatives still living around Oswaldtwistle, Church and Accrington. I look forward to hearing from anyone connected with the family.
