They were descended from the Baron Richard, brother of Sir Robert Fitzhenry, founder of Burscough Priory. " Henry de Tarbock or Torbock, who was early the lord of Tarbock, Roby, Huyton, Knowsley, and other manors, had two sons.

Many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, but those who did see the shores of North America were welcomed with great opportunity.
