Bid to trace Renwick family history

I am currently doing research into my great-great-grandfather, James Joseph Renwick, who was bandmaster of the East Lancashire Regiment in the 1880s and lived in Burnley.

The Renwick family in Burnley were quite extensive and, for example, George Francis Renwick, one of James’s sons was editor of a number of local papers. Others were weavers, soldiers, business owners and some emigrated to New Zealand.

I notice there are quite a few Renwicks in the telephone directory and was wondering if anyone has any Renwick family history documentation, in particular photos of James Joseph Renwick.

If there are any Renwicks out there, would they please contact me?
