Arnold Hamer

My father was born in 1900 and the address on the birth certificate is Nuttall Hall.  The family story is that he was born in a room on a bridge that spanned a road.  The address given in the 1901 census is No 1 Nuttall Road.  It occurs to me that it may have been an arched gatehouse to the hall.  Was there such a thing at that time?

I saw in the Lancashire Telegraph that the Ramsbottom Heritage Society had

put up a plaque commemorating Peter McDouall which triggered a chain of

thought concerning McDouall's associates in Ramsbottom during the 1840's.

I am looking into family history. Most seem to originate in Bank Lane. Is there any definition of this? It seems to be a vague area between Peel Brow and Shuttleworth.

John Greenhalgh was born in 1794 to John & Mary (believed to be Brooks) in Holcombe, the information suggests he was one of six children born in the district to John & Mary.

John married Mary Shaw in 1814 in St. Mary's Bury, he was transported to Australia in 1821. Mary followed in 1823. It is believed that both his father John & he were stocking weavers.
