Title - Descendants of Peter and Betty Jackson of Holcombe

Peter and Betty Jackson were married at St Mary's Church, Bury on 23 December 1798. For the next hundred years, the family was to live near the Lancashire village of Holcombe. It was only when my great-grandfather, Eli, began a new career as a publican that the family moved away, settling at the turn of the century a few miles further north in Accrington.
