The aim of this section is to gather as much genealogical information as possible on families connected with the town, however distant, so if you would like a link to your own site, a list of the names you are researching put here, a plea for help posted or to have your work made available on this site to assist others please get in touch.
Many thanks to the people who have donated material already but we always want more so that the site will grow into a truly useful source of information / reference for anyone researching families in or from Rishton.

Ask not what this site can do for you - ask what you can do for this site.

I have broke this section up in several ways -

  • Church Records. Found in the Churches section of the site, these include any birth records, death records, cemetery records, and marriage records that I have so far.
  • Census Records. All the census records together in one place for Rishton only. Found under Censuses.
  • Directory Listings. These include any directories that have been complied about Rishton, including Barrett's, Manex, and Kelly Directories. These are found under the Directories Section of the site.
  • Immigration Records. I have included these in the Census section of the Website
  • See also Cricket Professionals
  • Sports related people.
  • and Religious People.

I hope these help you find your way around the site, see the rest of this page for more help.

These are people who have either been born in Rishton, or have done something for Rishton, making it into the town we love so much today….. in no particular order!
