    • [Scotson Heapey.FTW]

      In "The History of Heapey Church" by Rev. D. S. Rennard (1915), there is mention of a Trust Deed 'conveying the right of Nomination and Presentation to Heapey Chapel and all its rights and privileges to the Vicar of Leyland for ever' and dated 20 November 1729. Among the several witnesses to this document is a John Scotson, yeoman, of Heapey. This is most likely to be the same John Scotson who was buried in 1732. It is not likely to have been the son John, because witnesses to documents of this kind are usually inhabitants of long standing in the community, and John's son would have been too young, having married only a month previously.
