My grandfather was Harold Lee Billington, born in Birstall, Leicestershire, in 1874, his father was John Billington, born in Birstall in 1828, baptised 1831, his mother was Sarah Morley, born in Hawick, Roxborough, Scotland in 1831. John's father was also named John, born in 1796 in Cheshire, his mother Mary Ann Naylor, also born in 1796. I am having difficulties tracing John's pedigree back any farther than this date, and would appreciate any help in reconstructing the earlier history of the family.
