Hi Joanne,

we went to parwich a few years back - William was related to one of my husbands ancestors. The information I have is:
William Greatorex (Farmer) b. abt 1781 (christened 2nd April 1781), d:22nd December 1865. Married Sarah Toplis of Brassington. Children: Lydia(mar. John Kirkham - children Lydia and John Toplis Greatorex), Thomas (b. 1817 mar.Ann Webster - children Thomas, Betsy, Lidia, Lucy Ann, William, Alice and Wright), Sarah, Henry, george, Joseph and Eliza.

I have a lot more information on the family - plus a few photos of Parwich churchyard and (I think) either Williams's grave or those of his sons Henry and george who both died in 1853. i will try to find them for you if they are of interest.

best wishes

Lisa Miller
