William Cookson

The two photographs on the right, which were believed to be William Armstrong, have been identified as William Cookson. William was born in 1812, and lived at Pilling Hall Farm with his family. Several of William's descendants married 'Owd' Jemmy's descendants.

Thank you to Steve Griffiths for providing us with the photograph below of the Cookson family gathering outside Pilling Hall Farm, taken in about 1900, in which William Cookson appears sitting at the front on the left. We agree with Steve that he bears a very strong resemblance to the gent in our images, with the clothing worn in the images appearing to be identical!
