Hi Linda,
We have only recently made a very hesitant and loose connection to your Stopforth Family and it was only because you said on your posting that there had been a number of marriages between Your Family and Rigbys.
I am a Norris, and one of my descendants Joseph Norris circa 1781 was born in Formby Lancashire.He married in 1805 in the same place, to Elizabeth Rimmer.One of the Witnesses to the Wedding was Mary Rigby.We know nothing else about her.
We have no known parents of Joseph but suspect it may have been a Henry Norris b.Formby 1737 and his second wife Isabel Stopforth.This ties in with a Stopworth /Rigby connection.
Love to hear from you as we are near neighbours !!!!
