Looking for HOUGHs in Lancashire

Query by mariapbf

My ggg grandfather Richard Hough was born in Chorley c. 1798 and died in the Bolton workhouse in 1882. He was a brewer by trade and entered the workhouse in 1879 due to destitution.

There is some debate as to who his parents are and some researchers make links to a Dutch line. The problem is the HOUGH name is quite common in Lancashire and there seem to be several different branches.

Hello, nice to hear from you and thanks for the info. The other possibility on IGI is William & Mary also in Chorley in November 1800. When time permits I will certainly be checking the registers to verify the info.

Best wishes

It might be that is a second marriage, after what may be twins or a double baptism of siblings.
Unusual but not unknown to postpone a baptism in case of infant death.
Very exciting, please do let me know what you find.

Hadn't thought about a second marriage - very clever!

Will certainly keep you updated.

best wishes
