Looking For Family Who Used To Live In Burton

A Memory of Burton in Lonsdale

My gt gt granmother Ann Brennan wife of Thomas (buried in the churchyard) and her daughter Margaret (nee Lodge) Fletcher, wife of John, on the 1871 census they lived next door to each other in 26 and 27 just says Burton. In 1861 Ann and Thomas Brennan are living at 23 High Street, Burton and he is an Innkeeper so I assume this was a Pub (now flats I think). In 1881 Margaret and John are living in 69 Duke Street, Burton and have a son William (who has a plaque in the churchyard, I think he married a Skeats girl) and a daughter Anne, they also have two other children, James and Thomas, they appear to work for the local pottery. Please can anyone help, do you know or are you a descendant of any of these people? Also I believe a gt aunt of mine, Alice Burke (nee Lodge), who married a Harry Sskeats lived at Hill House, which I think is next to the church, does anybody know of these families?
