    1. That's really useful information, Susan. It's not always easy to establish relationships between people of the same name. Thank you, and if you can add more to my knowledge, feel free to email me at prestonbirder@aol.co.uk

    2. Susan, you can see a posting on the Mitre Tavern, from someone called Jan, who says that you and her are 2nd cousins. If you'd like to get in touch with her, I could try and facilitate it. If you would like to write directly to me at srh.steve@aol.co.uk it would avoid putting your email on here. I can ask Jan to do the same and put the two of you together?

  3. My great grandfather was also John Clitheroe! Susan, we are 2nd cousins! I would love to get in touch. I have a great picture of the Mitre Tavern from the late 1800's with my grandfather Willam and his sister Beatrice in front.

    1. Thanks Jan,
      See my reply to Susan, above, and write to me on the email given.
      ALSO if you'd care to share the photo you mention, I'll add it to the page along with suitable accreditation. I don't recall seeing an image of the original Mitre on Moor Lane.
