We certainly are still here, and in surprisingly good numbers too! My father is from the Blackburn area (Church, Accrington) and it's believed that the name was first noted in nearby Whalley. I believe this is in 1050.

We have a rather marvellous coat of arms, which shows a catherine wheel. I asked a chap who was big on heraldry what this meant, and he said it stood for a history of suffering in the family. My father nodded in a sage fashion.

Cheers!
