Quaker Pemberton Burial in Lancashire in 1674

The following: "George Pemberton of Aspull belonging to Blackrod Meeting was buried the 31st of 11 month 1674" found in Register of Births, Marriages and Burials from the Monthly Meeting of Lancaster, Lancashire from 1644 to 1691, British National Archives RG6/1004. Aspull is in Wigan, Lancashire and 29 miles (as the crow flies) from Chester, Cheshire. Blackrod is about 5 miles NE of Wigan and is a chapelry in the Parish of Bolton le Moors (now Bolton) in the Salford Hundred. Bolton was a "hotbed of Puritanism". See or download a pdf of the archive here. Note that these "non-conformist" documents cannot be viewed on the National Archives web site, but are available at but you must be a logged-in subscriber.
