Researching the Pritchard – Jenkins family tree

I've been researching my family history for some years. I'm a Lancashire lad originally born in Ormskirk but am now living in Winsford. I've basically come full circle.

My research is very much centred around Tarvin as two past relations Thomas and Hannah Pritchard brought up their nine children in the village and are in the 1851 census as living at 75 Hockenhull La.
Hannah originally from Guilden Sutton her family being the Jenkins, married Thomas Pritchard From Stapleford.

In the 1851 census one son Edward and his son the grand child of Thomas and Hannah are residing at No. 75 Huckenhall La. the other children had left home.

I've visited Hockenhull La. and though no. 75 is a modern house nos. 77 and 79, red sandstone buildings have the initials JP on the front of the property, possibly the Builder and a date possibly when built in 1826, could J.P be a Pritchard.
Any knowledge of this house and the Pritchards would be greatly appreciated, are there any descendants still living in the village?

Thomas and Hannah are buried in St Andrew's Church yard. They did have one son, a William Pritchard who was a Saddler, he was born in 1814, would anyone have knowledge of Saddlers in the area.
William headed up to Liverpool where he married and settled.
Five generations of Pritchards originating from Tarvin through William lived and worked in Liverpool.

My Father took the family out of Liverpool to Skelmersdale in 1962 where I was born in 1963.
I've now completed a full circle and am back down in Cheshire, Winsford a stones throw from Tarvin.

It would be great to hear from any Pritchards residing in Tarvin today who may have the same link, also to hear more about the local community. It seems my DNA is very much in Tarvin.

Best Wishes

Andy Pritchard
