James Moorhouse Padiham Lancashire
Posted by: Sue Richards (ID *****5178) Date: December 17, 2006 at 20:22:09
  of 307

I am trying to trace my Moorhouse ancestors. My great grandfather was James Moorhouse and he married Elizabeth Chisnall or Chisnell, They had 8 children Victoria b 1903(my grandmother) Theophilus b c1893 (who died in infancy), Lily b c1895, Handel c1897, Arthur c1899, Dinah c1900, Edna c1907 and Louis. Theophilus is a family name (or so my grandmother told me). James Moorhouse fought in the Boer war. Most of the women in the family worked in the cotton mills. I think Handel ran away and joined the Navy. Any help or information gratefully received.
