In Reply to: ASHCROFTS of Horwich Nr Bolton Lancashire by Phillip John Ashcroft of 266

Hi Phillip

My ancestor John Ashcroft born abt 1783 was sent to Australia for stealing bolts of cloth from the Bleaching grounds of the Ridgeways at Horwich in 1813. He was aged 30 at the time, we suspect he may have left a family behind in England.

Please contact me by email if you wish

Regards
Vickie
