Thanks for taking time to respond to my original e-mail. In the interim I have been a busy
Further to my original post, the 1881 census shows Thomas Swarbrick, wife Margaret and six
children (aged 3 to 18 yrs) residing at 1 Armitriding Lane, Euxton. Farmer Swarbrick had
62 acres and even employed a farm servant by the name of James Pilkington (23 yrs)!
I am quite convinced that these are the Swarbricks for which I have been searching. My
great Grandfather was one Henry Swarbrick, who is shown as the eldest son (18yrs) at the
above address. I need to confirm further details with my mother.
I am absolutely amazed that I have managed to find later occupants (i.e. YOU!) of the same
area (if not house, hall or farm) on the internet. I admit it is only a tenuous link, but
a link none-the-less.
My workmate has a copy of the 1881 census on 30 odd CDs. If you want to find out about the
Heffrons in those days, drop me a line, giving as much detail as possible. The census
contains the following details; Surname, first and subsequent names, marital status, age
at time, sex,
birthplace, address, relationship with the household, occupation. The search engine will
work on surname, place of birth, address (county, parish, street etc). It is a bit
limited, but if you know several components it helps tremendously. It is v helpful to have
even a vague address!
PS: The current spelling of Armetriding is Armetridine. This makes about five different
spellings for the same place over 120 years.

Your salvation message at www.Euxton.com/The-Gospel.htm
was so lovely, made me feel homesick for Heaven, not just Lancs. Keep up the good
work, Euxton Village must be blessed to have such a web site.
Cpl E Donaldson,
Some where in Bosnia.
I'm from Leyland originally but live in USA now. I played football for Euxton back in late
70's early 80's on the field on the road to Jerry's.
Can't recall the name. Maybe you came and watched us some time. I dated a girl called
Susan Aspinall and her family had been in Euxton for years. They all lived at the Leyland
end of town. I often caught the 109 to Euxton to spend Saturday at the Bay Horse.
Well, just wanted to say hello.
Dear Euxton Village.
Was supplied this site by Al Heffron. I used to live in Leyland but played football for
Euxton FC back in the mid to late 70's. We used to be based in the Bay Horse and played on
various fields but mainly on the field which used to be in the estate opposite what was
then the Post Office. Is there any way of posting anything in the hope of getting replies
from anyone who may remember me?

So nice of you to reply AND to send the web link. I have spent most of this evening just
looking at it and recalling some equally fond memories (although my time was a little
later than yours :-)
The link to the Football Club (Euxton Villa) was particularly interesting as there were a
few names there of people I played with. I dropped them a line and hope to find some old
friends that way. So thank you for that.
I even learned some things about Euxton history that I never knew. We often used to take
the dog for a walk across the fields (careful to keep her on a leash!)
One interesting note I read.. you "looking from your window on St. Marys Gate
while studying". Coincidence or not.... my girlfriend, Susan Aspinall (Joe &
Kathleen were her Mum & Dad) lived at 14 St. Mary's Gate!!!
Hope this note finds you in good health.

We have moved into a house known locally as 'Maryland Cottage' on Wigan road (between the
junctions with Dawbers Lane and Balshaw Lane)which appears to be on the map you linked me
to. As much as anything else, we are interested to know roughly when it was built. Fully
