Burnley, Lancashire

fam717sIn Britain the distribution of the Townsley surname is mainly through Yorkshire and the North East of England, Cumberland / Cumbria, Scotland and Northern Ireland. As a broad generalisation the similar Townley surname is mainly based in Lancashire and the North West of England - including some of the north-western parts of Yorkshire.

The Burnley area of Lancashire is a "border" - in that it has families with both surnames; as well as being the home of the once-powerful Towneley family. There are even Townley and Townsley street names in the same area! The former family seat, Towneley Hall, is now a council art gallery and park. A start has recently been made at putting some of the archives on the web - including records of interest to family historians and the Towneley family tree is available as an Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) download.

Burnley was not only an important industrial centre - but it was also on the route of the Leeds to Liverpool canal; a busy commercial link before the railways arrived.

Just concentrating on the Townsley family lines - by 1881 there were at least two in Burnley and the surrounding towns. One clearly coming from Leeds in Yorkshire; the other linked to Little Marsden. It seems now that both of these families look to be related - even though much more work needs to be done before the family tree can be truly confirmed.

The Leeds line is thought to be descended from Richard Townsley and Lydia Burrows. Richard and Lydia were married 5 Sep 1854 at Burnley Register Office. He was probably born about June 1829 in Hunslet, Leeds to Ann Townsley and she about 1830 in Brierfield; the daughter of Martin Burrows.

The Little Marsden line was thought to be unconnected to Richard since the local births went back to the 1820's. But now it seems possible that the families do have an earlier connection and this is shown below. In the 1881 Census this second family is represented by Robert (b 1826) and Elizabeth Townsley (b 1828, nee Clegg) who were living at 19 Victoria Street, Marsden with their 3 children - Catherine, Charley and Emma.

There are also a number of mills and commercial buildings in the area that are very likely linked to these Townsley families -

  • Townsley Bros., Wadeshill Mill (1907-1964?); Secretary F Townsley (1947-1964)
  • Townsley Bros., Seedhill Mill
  • C Townsley & Co Ltd, Victoria Mill  (Charley? 1863-1947)
  • Waideshouse Mill, Townsley Street, Nelson
  • Townsley House, Kingsway, Burnley

 

Much of this information has been kindly provided by a descendant of the local Townsley families.

Based on much guess work, a provisional family tree has been put together that goes back to the great grand parents of Richard (b 1829) and the grand parents of Robert (b 1826). And it also includes the family that appears on the Bradford page.
