Plantation Mill was derelict back in the 1930's.

I am researching my family tree and my mother's sister, Gladys, married Albert Birtwell in 1928.....but not sure which Albert Birtwell...on the 1911 census there are two Birtwell families, one at 54 Spencer Street and one at 8 Orange Street both have sons called Albert...one age 4 and one age 6. .... any more info would be gratefully received...

My grandfather is Robert Colin Birtwell son to Albert Birtwell who owned the Birtwell's Ice Cream van, and his father was Ambrose Birtwell. If anybody has any pictures or stories or anything I would be so grateful.

Thankyou

Re: Huncoat Hall - (Birtwistle)

My Great grandparents were Birtwistles and we have traced our family back to Huncoat Hall in the 1100's. I thought we would get a couple of generations back but never thought we would get back so far and be linked to Huncoat as my family are from liverpool.

Re: Huncoat Hall - (Birtwistle)

Grief! How on earth do you research back to the 1100's? I have only got back as far as the 1780's and early 1800's and thats far enough for me! I have only done that by looking at the 1841 census and working back with people's ages at that time.

Re: Huncoat Hall - (Birtwistle)

Hi June (Atarah).... We paid to get our family tree done professionally. You can only go back to the 1500's as a commoner. If anything exists previous to that then it is nobility so will be polishing my tiara and greeting my people with a quaint wave as i drive past.

Re: Huncoat Hall - (Birtwistle)

Just remember HINDLE is a dead common name, so could be hard to trace. Oops, maybe I should use the word "popular name" - here in Lancashire . I was a Hindle before I got married.

I once went with a pal to the farm in the late 50s or early 60s . His dad was Harry Hindle , and I'm sure Mrs Birtwell was his sister .

They lived across back from us up Fern Gore . When Mr Birtwell came our way with the ice cream he always stayed at Harry Hindle's for a while .

We got back by going through the name hindle.... suppose its easier for someone who does it professionally x

I well remember Birtwell's ice cream and the horse drawn cart. The ice cream was a yellow colour and was very creamy in taste. I seem to remember that they rang a large hand bell to get our attention. A good friend of mine was Michael Birtwell who lived with his parent's in Broadfield Road Fern Gore Accrington, and was related to the Birtwell's of huncoat. Michael unfortunately died young at 50 about 11years ago. Regards, Mike Rotheram
