Unwin family (Anglican)

Disambiguation – There was more than one Unwin family, at least two possibly more. Two of these families were very active in Bollington and we know quite a bit about both. The only significant feature to differentiate between them was their religion – one family was Catholic, the other Anglican. This page describes the principal Anglican family.
