Our database, Lancashire Diaries, lists more than 1,000 surnames, and it may help genealogists who are researching their Lancashire, England roots, from 1772 to 1910.
 
The diaries, kept for more than 50 years by Lancashire grocer and overseer Samuel Scowcroft, paint a picture of Lancashire farm life and the cotton industry during the 19th century as well as during part of the 18th and 20th centuries.
