Members may be interested in the following email The Society has received from Anthony Annakin-Smith:

“I wondered if you would be kind enough to bring to your members’ attention a book to be published by the University of Chester, written by myself, which amongst other things discusses Emma Hamilton’s paternal family (father Henry, uncle Thomas and others) from Prescot (Lancs.) and maternal family (the Kidds) from Hawarden (Flints.).I believe the book adds new information, with sources, on the various family members. The book is ‘The Neston Collieries, 1759-1855: An Industrial Revolution in Rural Cheshire’ more details here:  Neston Collieries”
