The Islands, Elton,Bury

Post  shaunpaul on Tue Oct 02, 2012 7:36 am

Hi, I'm a new member researching my family history. My great grandfather is shown in the 1841 census aged 1 living at The Islands, Elton Bury. I have not been able to find any information about The Islands. Can anybody help me with any information on this area or any maps which may show its location. Any information or guidance towards suitable reference would be very much appreciated
