The first was that a distant relative, the 6th Earl of Winton was captured there during the 1715 Battle of Preston, he went to live in Italy after escaping from the Tower of London.
My father ended his WWII service in Italy and was housed in Fulwood Barracks hospital in 1945 for almost a month before going home to Manchester.
A small world.
