Sallom, John

A Mr Sallom appears briefly in an account of the Hesketh family of Whitehill, Goosnargh, in the Tyldesley diary, in which he is recorded as marrying Anne, the only daughter of Roger Hesketh. Their son, John Sallom, gent., acquired the Whitehill estate by private Act of Parliament, lost after his uncle, Gabriel Hesketh, was attainted for high treason following the 1715 rebellion. All Gabriel’s five sons died without issue. [1] More information on John Sallom can be found in Fishwick. [2]

A Mr Sallom is also mentioned in the 13 July 1689 entry in Lawrence Rawstorne‘s diary; he is probably the husband of Anne and father of John. There were several Salloms living in Bilsborrow and Claughton in the 17th and 18th centuries according to the parish records of St Helen, Garstang, which show a John Sallom baptised on 27 August 1684, son of John Sallom of Claughton.
