thankyou for taking the time in tracking me down. Yes I was in contact with Matthew last year and as yet still have not found a link. Although I still feel sure there is one somewhere a long the track.Although my family dropped the C from Colclough, there are still traces of James' siblings having a C. I have futher information which I have tracked down relating to the rest of his family in Wigan, but as yet am not sure if any of them came out to Australia. If they did the possibility would be they would be Colclough. I did find on the Electrol role in 1938 through to mid 1940 a Colclough living in the same area as my GGrandfather, which was Merewether NSW. At the moment I have bits and pieces of paper all over the place as I am trying to organise my house, so I am unable to tell you the exact details just yet. I'm pretty sure his name was Robert, which was also one of his brothers names. After this time I had lost track of James as he had been transferred to Cardiff area. I would love to hear from you again, at this stage I have been fairly slack in replying to some people, in fact I found a letter I had written but had not got around to sending, and I feel really bad. So I guess I have some catching up to do.Time just seems to get away and there is always something else that needs doing. My email address is email@example.com it has changed since I spoke with Matthew, as I was having problems with the server. So please take note of it and I will keep checking here for your message.
Kind regards Leah Cooke
