Dear Stephen and any other Hindleys
Looking at my recent message, I find that i have made a mistake. I should have put in the name of "Roger of Aspull" between 12 Robert and 13 Hugh. Roger of Aspull married Alice, daughter of William Massey and grand-daughter of Geoffrey Shackerley. Roger also died in 1651. He had several children, Julian, Roger, Doritie, Edward, and George who died in infancy. These years were those of the civil war, the Commonwealth and Protectorate and it is not known whether any of these children succeeded to the Hall. (The date that Hugh Hindley died - 1651 is an estimate and could be up to 10 years later)
In days gone by, Hindley was a picturesque village. It had its pace eggers and drama performed by the village mummers at Easter and on Shrove Tuesday. there was a maypole on Hindley Green and pigs foraged for acorns in Hindley Wood. Alas all this has now gone and the town of Hindley appears like a suburban sprawl. Hindley Hall however stands out like a beacon and is now the magnificent-looking club-house of Hindley Green Golf Club.
