Hi Freda

I know of only 2 Ellen Ascrofts in my line. Ellen daughter of Peter and Betty (nee Watson or Wadson) Ascroft, born 1782, and Ellen daughter of Thomas and Margaret (nee Scarisbrick) Ascroft, born 1822. Neither are in my direct line but are siblings of one of mine. I don't know of any Jane Ascroft. Thomas occurs in most generations - one born 1770, one 1818, one 1860 for example. My seem to all be from Wigan central rather than Orrell, but I don't know how near Orrell is to Wigan central

Gwynne Chadwick mentions a monumental inscription for Peter Ascroft where there is also a Benjamin Bibby. Might be worth a look:

Good luck
