John Bamford at the town of Bamford

The outskirts of the town of Bamford, although this town has much less to do with my family origins than Shore, Littleborough


From notes made by my Great Grandfather John Bamford (1833 - 1905) my family can trace its ancestry to Edmund Bamford (1802 - 1876) of Littleborough, Lancashire, who married Martha Lord (1802 - 1886).

From later information, we understand that the parents of my Great Great grandfather Edmund Bamford were James Bamford (1778 - 1822) and Mary (nee Lees) (before 1780 - 1833). The parents of Edmund's wife Martha (nee Lord) were John Lord (about 1767/1768 - 1841) and Jenny (nee Taylor) (born 1768).

Apart from the direct line of descendents to me, I know very little about the brothers and sisters of Edmund Bamford and Martha Lord, and their children, and would be interested in more information.
