This evening I'm continuing work on an Advanced Pack for which we have traced the customer's family name back to 1692 so far and are still going strong! Throughout the 1700s and in the early 1800s the family were weaver's from Ashton-under-lyne, Lancashire (apart from one many-times-Great Grandfather who tried his hand at being a book keeper, and a beer retailer, but in the end was also a weaver!).
