James Taylor of Smethurst Hall was my 5th Great Grandfather, and his wife, as you suggested - was in fact called Margaret Topping. I am decended through his son John Taylor - who married Sophia Collis (you suggested Howard). This John's second born son was called John (my 3rd Great Grandfather) he was Charles Taylor's brother who was the fifth born son (incidentally he had a twin brother called Samuel). Charles decendents moved, in part, to America - perhaps this is where you are researching from ?

Anyway James Taylor's Family bible was transcribed by John, his grandson and has been passed down through the family to myself. My Grandfather having recently died. It has extensive details of the family - which I have further researched. In terms of Charles decendents I also have several details that have recently been sent to me by a descendent of his.

The Family history further back than this is rather sketchy - perhaps you would E-mail me and we can exchange research - for instance Charles is listed in the family Bible as having been born on the 9th Jan 1812.

I am tracing my Travis ancestors who seem to come from the Butterworth area. If I am correct in my assumptions then my 7 Great Uncle Joseph Travis who was born. 11 July 1703 married Betty Taylor on 6 January 1727 St Chads Rochdale. Betty born 1705 died 17 July 1758.

Joseph was the son of Benjamin Travis b 1675 & Jane Brearly b 1679.

Would you like any more information on this Travis line.
