William Pownall born circa 1777
Posted by: Phil Orrell (ID *****2855) Date: January 24, 2004 at 07:32:33
  of 176

William Pownall married Ellen Welsby a widow (nee Hope)at Winwick, Lancashire in 1800.
They lived In Ashton-in-Makerfield, William dying at Hindley Workhouse in 1842.
William may not have been born in and around Wigan but I have failed to trace him in the 1841 census and despite searching many of the Wigan area records for his birth can find nothing conslusive.
Can anyone help?
