Horrocks/Brooks in Lancashire
Posted by: Diane Dower ( nee Horrocks ) Date: October 18, 2001 at 13:28:33

I'm trying to find decendents of Nicholas Horrocks ( b: 1872 in Lancashire ) who married Alice Brooks ( b: 1874 in Lancashire ). They lived in the Wigan area of Lancashire. Nicholas was my Grandfather who came to Durham to find work. His wife Alice who played football in a ladies soccer team, had a brother, Alf who lived in Westhoughton, Bolton. Alf had 2 Daughters, Harriet & Elsie ( I think ). One of them lived in number? Hollinacre, Westhoughton. One of them had 2 boys, the eldest called Adam. Grandfather Nicholas had I think 3 brothers, Eli ( who went to Canada ) and Sam who may have stayed in the Wigan area and Nat ( whos wife could have been Mary? ). Anyone with any information on the Horrockses or the Brooks decendents, please get in touch.
