Find your ancestors in Wrightington banns

What can these records tell me?

These records are from Wrightington Hall, the ancestral home of the Wrightington family up until the death of Sir Edward Wrightington in 1658. Starting in the 1680s, Wrightington Hall kept a Roman Catholic priest on-site. Their private chapel was dedicated to St Joseph and could be used by the family, employees, and tenants. However, with the erection of St Joseph’s Church in 1894, the chapel was utilized less frequently. The County Record Office in Preston maintains the Hall chapel registers.
