              Harwoods of Darwen: The History of the Harwood, & Associated Families Descended from Darwen, Lancashire - Volume 2, Part I (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              This is the second volume of the history of the families descended from the Harwoods of Darwen. This volume follows the lives of one particular branch, which originally settled on the hilly moorland slopes in the hamlet of Yate & Pickup Bank, gradually moving into Darwen and then... further afield as far as Australia, Canada, India and the U.S.A. Within its pages it gives an intimate insight into how our Lancashire ancestors interacted with each other, and how they coped with life over several centuries. The story includes detailed information of the lives of many other families with whom the Harwoods have intermingled over the years, and it would be a rare Darwener who could not find some connection to his own ancestors within these pages. The Harwood family, wherever they find themselves, will give thanks that they have their Boswell in Mike Harwood. As James Boswell did with his subject Samuel Johnson, so Mike Harwood writes in great detail of the lives of his ancestors, of the families they spread into, and of the times in which they lived. He does it much as Dr. Johnson wrote his dictionary, with a sceptical view of his subjects and a style full of idiosyncratic asides. It's an encyclopedia of Harwoods, and representative as they are of a working-class Lancashire family who survived and thrived throughout the English-speaking world. It's a volume that's well worth dipping into. NEIL SAYER. Archivist. From small beginnings searching for John Albert Harwood, the author's family history has evolved into a tightly woven story. This is a fascinating in-depth look at the Harwood genealogy, but it is so much more than that, and should inspire all genealogists always to look just that bit further. Family history is about so much more than just facts; it is about real people, real lives, people we should remember, and Mike amply demonstrates this in this tremendous work. ANNA WATSON (MBE). Archivist.

              This book gives an insight into how our Lancashire ancestors lived and interacted with the environment in which they existed, over the centuries. Apart from a general history of Darwen life, this volume covers not only the very first ancestral tree but follows the story of one pa...rticular family branch through to the twentieth century and into living memory. The story includes detailed information of many other families which whom the Harwoods have intermingled over the centuries, and it would be a rare Darwener, who could not find some connection to his own ancestors within these pages. Enthusiasm, in-depth research, and a unique authorial voice: this book is what genealogy should result in. It locates the Harwood family in a specific historical place and then watches them grow up and move out. Family journeys are explored from the paper mills of Kent to the goldfields of Ballarat and Maori massacres. The sheer numbers of documents illustrated show both their value as evidence and the breadth of Mike's research. There are fruitful and informative diversions into work, leisure, and religion, with excursions into the history of education, nonconformity, and workhouses, among many other things. It's a story of Lancashire, and a Lancashire in the world. And it's hard to argue with its announcement of itself not as a history but as the history of the Lancashire Harwoods. They are both typical and unique, and in tracing the development of Lancashire from a rural to an industrial economy, Mike never loses focus on his ancestors' place in it. -Neil Sayer, archive access manager, Lancashire Archives
