Eccles Family History

A Memory of Bilsborrow

My great-grandfather, Joseph Eccles, built Bilsborrow Hall. He owned a number of cotton mills in Preston and played cricket for Lancashire.
I have just started to look into our family history and will hopefully be able to post more comments later.
Thank you for your memory
Best wishes
Peter Eccles
