|About Darwen Area Ancestors
The original outline for this tree was taken from Rev. Benjamin Nightingale's book "A History of the Old Independent Chapel, Tockholes, near Blackburn, Lancashire". As the tree has grown so hasn't the area populated by the families shown. Census years, parish records, bmd entries as well as contributions from Darwen area researchers, have added much information. The book "Darwen and It's People" added yet more families. Please consider this tree as only a guide to your own research, dates are approximate in most instances and not "written in stone". Please contact me with additions, corrections or questions.
Special thanks to all who have contributed to this tree in the past and now in 2016 thanks to Geoff Lowe of Australia who has added his families and jolted me back to researching after having been away from genealogy for over a year.
Thank you for visiting.
