It seems all focused on Tottington and broadly the Bury/Bolton area. This of course will continue to grow. However my father can trace his history back to Harmston, thence to India, Cornwall and then via London to Tottington. Pix and info to follow. He had a large family too! Then of course is my wife's family, father from what we thought was originally Sussex, but we now know Hampshire! Last but not least my mother-in-Law, part German and part Polish.
Probably time for some sort of Genealogy table!

Tottington Wesleyan School 1922


This picture has my Great Aunt Irene Lomax on it. She is 3rd from the left on the top row. This school was attached to the church. Of course many of the family and close relatives are buried in the churchyard. I was raised in "Tottie". And still consider it my home town, I have spent the last 40 years on the Fylde coast.
She remained in the area, married James Cosgrove in the church, taught at the Bury Tech. She died at Highbank nursing home in Walshaw. Who are all these other people!
