Hi Linda. As I recall, the two Ainscoughs mentioned in Ian's message - James and Thomas - living in the Durham and area were probably one and the same person. They weren't actually connected to my line of the family, but I delved into the records anyway as my curiosity was piqued! In answer to your query, I don't think James and Nancy and family are any connection to my lot - more's the pity. If I come across any info on them in my researches, I'll certainly let you know. If you want to know what I have on my Ainscoughs, my web site - www.mjra.net
- has lots of information.
