Dear Al,
Thanks for taking time to respond to my original e-mail. In the interim I have been a busy bee;
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.

Dear Alf,
Just found your site whilst brousing the net (guess I'm still home sick for Lancashire). Your salvation message at 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.

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. Mary’s 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.
Take care

Hi Al,
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 understand if you can't help us whilst your out and about, but if you know any URL's that may be of use...
Best wishes,
