Lawton Family Genealogy
My name is "John Trevor Lawton" and I live
in Perth, Western Australia. For quite a number of years now
I have been collecting and collating information and digging
up stories about my family history. I have accumulated quite
a bit of genealogical information on the "Lawton" families
of Mossley, Lancashire, Saddleworth, Yorkshire, Stalybridge,
Cheshire and in the North West of England, which may be of
interest to fellow genealogy researchers. You may also be interested to read my background from early life in Mossley, England to my present home in Perth, Western Australia.
My ancestors on my fathers side of the family all seem to
have originated from the villages and hamlets of Saddleworth
in the West Riding of Yorkshire. The surname "Lawton" being
very common in and around that area. "Schofield", "Buckley",
along with "Brierley", are other surnames that pop-up frequently
in the family ancestry and local history. Whereas my mother's
ancestral family line on her 'Mothers' side of the family, "Jinks" and "Broad" all
seem to hail from the Sandbach area of Cheshire, whilst her
Father's "Nicholls" side of the family originate from Coventry.
So if you have a little time to spare PLEASE take a look!
Lawton Family Photographs
I have a collection of Lawton Family Photographs plus archive photographs of historic landmarks and building from Saddleworth, Mossley, Heartshead and Yorkshire.
I'm constantly adding new photographs to my gallery, some of which are available as high resolution TIF files. If you require any of these photographs please e-mail me and I will endeavour to e-mail you the photographs you require.
