I mention these two towns because this is were my great grandfather William Worthington,two of his brothers settled here and there are still descendents of them there,the two brothers being Abraham and Moses.
I have recently been in contact with one of Abrahams decendents Mr Philip Inman from Atherton,Lancashire his mother Gladys was a Worthington,at the bottom of the street where he lives, the cemetery where Abraham and many of his descendents are buried is located. Philip recalls his mother always said, they were from a noteable family near Standish
and they lost there lands and everything.
Moses is buried in Leigh cemetery with some decendents but I have not located any living relations yet.
