From David Ward

Reference 047



I have an ancestor, William Ward, who was a journeyman stonemason. He travelled about Lancashire from job to job but he lived in Ramsbottom in 1834 when his son William was born.

I am trying to find out more information about him and I noticed that the building of St Andrews Church was started about 1832. Can you let me know where the original documentation is for this or what other stone buildings might have been built in Ramsbottom about this time

I cannot answer David's question but I can tell him about the Ward family site - google 'Summerseat' and he should find it. Maybe the Ward family have his answer.
