NEWSHAM in the Glasson or Thurnham, Lancashire
I am interested in the Newsham family, fishermen from the Glasson Dock / Thurnham area in Lancashire around 1830-90. William Newsham (<1818) and Rachel [Houghton?] (c. 1809) had Margaret, Robert, John, Thomas, Joshua and George. The son Joshua married Hannah (Berry) from Dalton in 1875, but continued to live in Glasson Dock with the family working around the dockyards. They had children in the late 1880s and 1890s - Rachel, Isabella, Nathan, Joshua, John and George.
