Rainford Family Genealogy Forum
The Rainford Info I have is pretty sketchy and not to clear I have a Jane Rainford who's father was Stephen Rainford and came from Wesham or there abouts The last of the Kirkham Rainfords died a couple of years ago a chap by the name of Moses Rainford (Some distant cousin) My family seemed to move enmass to the Chorley/Horwich/Bolton Area in the mid 1860's. Maybe we have a link as there was only one Rainford family in that area. Talking to someone who knew Moses, they said that the Rainfords had been in the area since the 1600's and there are a couple of graves in the Parish Church at Kirkham.
On a different note I was in touch with the Canon of Blackburn (a Liverpool Rainford) who had some info on the Fylde Rainford Family but his computer has got a virus and is getting it fixed. It may be of use to us both. Keep In Touch
