Harrison family
#1
I'm seeking information on the Harrison family, my ancestors, who lived in the Leyland area.
Bartholomew Harrison born about 1761, Margaret Harrison (became Wilson) born ~1805 Ulnes Walton, John Harrison b ~1841 Ulnes Walton, John Harrison born ~1874 Leyland, John Ernest Harrison born 1896 Leyland. The family lived, at various times in Porters (?) Smithy, Ulnes Walton; Midge Hall; Leyland Moss; Land Lane Longton; Gill Lane Longton; Hawthorn House Midge Hall; and 191 Station Rd Bamber Bridge (fish and chip shop)
John Ernest Harrison born 1896 (my granddad) later lived in Larkhill St, Blackburn, but he died before I was born. His widow, my granny, lived in Ribble St, and then Inkerman St in Blackburn when I knew her.
The John Harrison born ~1841 had 6 sons, Henry, Thomas, John, William, George and Robert, so I imagine there must be many Harrisons still in the area.
I was brought up near Blackburn, and now live in Chester, but I know nothing about the Leyland area. If anybody knows anything about the people listed above, or the locations, I would love to hear from them.  

Vivian Downing (nee Harrison)

Hi Vivian, growing up I lived in the step houses on Fox Lane, 2 doors down was a Harrison family with 2 sons born on the same day 10 years apart. The eldest son was called Steve who was a painter decorator the younger son was called David who worked for a solicitor. Having not lived in Leyland for 42 years l have lost track of them. Frank h.

Thanks for your reply. As you know, I'm interested to find out about Leyland Harrisons.
