Wilkinson Family Bible From Lancshire

This bible was originally published in 1860 and was the family bible of George and Martha Wilkinson, of Clayton Le Moors, Lancashire. Their children were Grace, Mary Ann, George, and Stanley Luke. George Wilkinson was born 07 March 1874 at Clayton Le Moors, Lancashire, England. I believe Martha's surname was Laynes. George's parents were listed as Luke and Ann and they were listed in the 1881:

1881 English Census
Dwelling Police Station

Census Place Great Harwood, Lancashire, England

Luke Wilkinson, age 45 (born 1836), born Ribchester, Lancashire, England, occupation Police Sergeant
Ann Wilkinson, age 43 (born 1838), born Ribchester, Lancashire, England
Children: Sarah, Thomas, John, Luke, George (age 7), Grace and Ann.

Luke Wilkinson married Ann Slater 9 April 1860 at Ribchester, Lancashire, England. Luke was born 8 Mar 1836 at Ribchester and listed as the son of Thomas Wilkinson and Sarah Jones. They married  24 June 1830 at Ribchester, Lancashire, England. Looking online, the name Wilkinson seems to be closely attached to Ribchester with the surname recorded back to the 1600s.

The eBay item number for this family bible is 170462509497.
