    HENRY SWIFT

    juliemargrobi
    By juliemargrobi,
        Hello Henry Swift is my 2 x Gt Grandfather.  According to the burial record (17 Apr 1905 in St Helens), he was aged 62, which would make his year of birth 1843.  However, the census returns of 1841, 1881 both give his date of birth as abt 1841.  He married Margaret Atherton on 16 April 1860, & the marriage record gives his date of birth as 21, which would make his year of birth as 1839!   There are a number of Henry Swifts & I am having difficulty in going back further with the family tree, as obviously I am unsure that I have the correct Henry Swift!!  The only thing that I know for sure is that my 2 x Gt Grandfather married Margaret Atherton (1835 - 1897).   I have heard that the year of birth isn't always correct on the census record, but I just want to make sure I have the correct Henry, to be able to trace his parents.   Hope that someone can help!   Best wishes   Julie

    sthelens star and india call centre?

    non sibi sed omnibus
    By non sibi sed omnibus,
    For many months we get a call from aperson asking if we recd our sthelens star in billinge.each response was a clear yep. Then a few months ago got anotber call asking the same question.yep again.Then shortly after we were told our local lad was being made redundant and the star not being delivered. Today just had a call from someone in a call centre IN INDIA!.Asking did we get our sthelens star.Remembering that tbe star offices were now temp IN WARRINGTON! I did politely ask how they could be paid for asking a question on a paper THE PAPER ITSELF had stopped delivery and they should send his fee back to the delivery lads so they could deliver again. Perhaps this is as a result of BREXIT.Wonder if HORT gets his copy,maybe specially delivered to him FROM INDIA?

    RIP Len 'Banana' Saunders

    By Robbob2010,
    I find it hard to know what to say but i've got to do this. You'll have probably read or heard about Len Saunders who was punched for not having a cigarette in a street attack and passed away on sunday ,he was 65 years old. 2 guys remain in custody. I've been numb all day since i received an email from Ann Shacklady Smith from Lucem House and read the Star,i still can't take it in. Len has been a friend for around 5 years who always made me laugh and had time for everyone.I know lots of people say he/she was so lovely when they die but Len was,honest...wouldn't harm a fly. I seen him more regularly over these last few months than ever before mostly on Corporation St were we would have a good natter. Condolences to his family and friends and may he rest in peace.   http://www.sthelensstar.co.uk/news/15444390.Tributes_paid_to_friendly_performer_and_poet___39_Len_Banana__39_/   Len in the Pale Boy play by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Len in the Pale Boy play by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Len in the Pale Boy play by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Len in the Pale Boy play by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Len at the Onesie Walk by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Len in the Mansion House Gardens by Robbob 2010, on Flickr   Len at the Onesie Walk by Robbob 2010, on Flickr     Christmas Fayre at Mansion House by Robbob 2010, on Flickr     added 7 minutes later I hope and pray the bastards get it!
