Hi,
James Ainscough is the son of Thomas and Ellen Ainscough. He was baptised on 4 April 1833 at Wigan. I am a descendant of Thomas and Ellen through another son, Thomas, who was born on 6 November 1836 at Westleigh, Lancs although some of the census entries say Wigan or Haigh. Both Thomases were also boatmen - on the barges (flats), probably hauling coal.
Thomas senior married Ellen Gibson at Upholland, Lancs on 15 Jan 1827 and they had 10 or 11 children that I know of. Thomas's parents were John Ainscough and Ann Finch who married at Leyland on 16 May 1792. They had 10 children that I know of and John was a crofter at marriage.
I have a little more information should you want it.
Barbara
