Re: Area around Stag Pub

Re: Area around Stag Pub

Could it be King Oswald, founder of Church Kirk and his missus? - not that anyone would know what they looked like.

Doug - hadn't we been burning Catholics for quite a long time by 1648? NOT an encouragement to hang about in monkish robes, surely?

I agree about the King & Queen looking. Wonder who they are meant to be.

Re: Area around Stag Pub

The Southworth family lived at Salmesbury Hall between Blackburn and Preston. I think it is John Southworth who is now a Catholic saint (or is it Christopher?). The family more or less died out because all the sons went to be priests, and came to sticky ends. Bit of a wander, but information anyway.

If you liked Mist over Pendle, try Harrison Ainsworth's book "The Lancashire Witches" - same period, same people, different slant entirely

Never head of Priest Holes. hehehehe. I'm not going to enter a religious argument about burning our Catholic friends. But they did miss a few. I know, I married one once…..

Re: Area around Stag Pub

Don't mind me, my godmother dragged me off and had me baptised a Catholic - nobody asked me, so I exercised my choice when I was older. Never worried enough about religion to burn for it.

Wouldn't Church Kirk have had a vicar by then, probably a puritan one as well, since Old Noll was not keen on any form of showy stuff?

I know that the ghost story about the white lady at Salmesbury hall was supposed to be John Southworths daughter who died in mysterious circumstances.

If John Southworth was a priest, he had no business having a daughter! That said, there were probably quite a few John Southworths, they weren't very original with names in those days. There is supposed to be a white lady, but don't know the story, except that she is supposed to wander out onto the Preston road and terrify motorists!

If you want a good read on this, then click on here:


http://rishton.es6.net/web/History/M.../ponthalgh.htm


This is from the Rishton website, which is very good, but mainly historical. Anyway, I'm sure they won't mind the link, considering as this bit's all about Church, anyway.
