any help to anyone ??

Sarah Ann Pilkington and Lawrence Dewhurst were living at 'do Cottage' on the 1881 Census where 'do' means ditto and translates to 'Huncoat Hall Cottage' as it corresponds to the previous entry for Thomas Haworth 42yrs (farmer of 123 acres) 'Huncoat Hall'

Lawrence 28yrs was born Padiham and Sarah Ann 28yrs was born Dukenfield, Cheshire. They were married at St James Church Kirk 1880. Hope that helps.

Huncoat Hall is associated with the Birtwistles but tended to have multiple occupancy by various families on subsequent Census years.

Back in the day the White Lion Inn at Huncoat would be the site where the sale of Huncoat Hall, Griffin's Head and other local properties took place.
Interested in local and family history for Accrington and surrounding towns

Re: Huncoat Hall - (Birtwistle)

hello. My 4th great grandmother was Betty Pilkington 1778-1829. She married John Sudall and family sources say their son Robert Sudall 1817 was born at Huncoat Hall. We have no information on the Pilkington’s. I just wondering if you have anymore information on the Pilkington family and maybe our Pilkington relatives are related. Thank you

I am just getting re-acquainted with the Accy.Web and just noticed your post. So I am a little late in replying.
Birtwell Ice Cream mid-Late 50's: The horse and cart used to stand in the back running down to the main road from Melbourne Street. A whistle was blown and as kids we used to run out from our joint back yard to purchase our ice cream 4d or 6d I think. We were always asked if we wanted blood (Raspberry sauce) Sometimes the horse would set off without warning as the ice cream was being handed over. I don't know the name of which Birtwell, it was probably Ambrose, but he certainly had a gruff voice yelling at the horse to stand. But very often we ended up chasing the cart down the back, laughing all the way to get our ice cream.Happy Memories.
