Im looking for my fathers parents James Arnold Shaw and Jane Shaw nee Farnsworth both from Blackburn in England

Journal by vmax1200

Lookng for my Grandparents is a real challenge unfortunately my dad has passed and there are no records at all that we can find. Are there any Shaw's out there with ancestors from Blackburn in Lancashire. my great great grandparents on my grandmothers side were Fred and Harriet Farnsworth from Moor Green in Nottinghamshire. Any leads or knowledge appreciated

James A Shaw married Jane Farnsworth 1924 Lancaster, Lancashire Q3 8e 2083.

In the UK 1901 Census I have a Fred & Harriet Farnsworth and daughter Jane. Fred was born c1879 in Nottingham, he was a Shop Assistant". Harriet was also born c1879 in Nottingham and she was a "Hosiery Ironer. Jane was aged 2, born c 1899 in Nottingham. They were living at 4 Sherwood Place, Broad Marsh, Nottingham.

In the 1891 Census there is a Fred and a Frederick in Nottingham but the Fred was born in Moor Green so if that is the correct one then th family is as follows
John T c1854 Newthorpe, Nottingham a Farmer
Fanny c1853 Newthorpe, Nottingham
Martha c1874 Watnall, Nottingham a Domestic Household
Flora c1876 Moor Green, a Domestic Household
Lily c1880 Watnall, scholar
Alice c 1884 Watnall scholar
Fred c1878 Mooir Green a "Farmers Son"
Festus c1882 Watnall
William c 1885 Watnall
Robert c1887 Watnall
