  1. So sad to hear about Chris. He was so kind and will be missed.
  2. If Alice is the orphan on the 1861 census then LancsBMD has 1858 death references for a Samuel (SH/26/98) and Mary (SH/26/93) in the same register - might be a mere coincidence as there are two other references for Mary in that year. Could be worth asking the Register Office to check for you.
  3. Is this the daughter: Alice Burrows, daughter of Samuel & Mary. Born 9 March 1856, baptized 13 April 1856 at St Helens Parish Church
  4. Lancashire Online Parish Clerks now has burial records through to 1992
  5. It's back working again.
  6. Thomas and Erina were married at St Nicholas, Sutton on 3 February 1923. Thomas MOLYNEUX (8 November 1898) and his son, Stanley (2 September 1923) were living at 236 Jubits Lane on the 1939 Registration. The GRO death index shows Thomas death registered in March 1991
  7. The LOFTHOUSE/MURPHY marriage appears to be the correct one as the children's baptisms show their mother's maiden name was MURPHY. John was at 154 College Street and Jane at 30 Russell Street at the time of their marriage.
  8. The GRO death index shows Monica RIMMER (DOB 15 September 1915) registered at Knowsley district May 2004. Marriage of John RIMMER and Monica DAVIES at Sacred Heart on 1 June 1937.
  9. John Ernest Hulme, 20, Bachelor, Bootmaker, 99 Hardshaw Street: Father James Hulme (Bootmaker) Jane Renshaw, 20, Spinster, 71 North Road: Father John Renshaw (Mason)
  10. Thomas Rigby b1843 married Sarah Taylor b1849..they had 3 children. john b1866... mary ann b1874... martha b1879. The middle child appears to be Maria on her baptism and census records. She married Thomas RICKARDS at St Nicholas, Sutton on 15 September 1897. They were living in Francis Street on the 1911 census with their five children.
  11. Martha's marriage to Matthew CARNEY at Sacred Heart on 4 August 1900 shows her father as John PLANT - the LBMD entry shows her as Martha LEE and Martha PLANT. Her previous marriage (in the December quarter of 1885) to Henry LEE was at St Peter, Everton according to the entry on LBMD. You can find Martha PLANT with her parents and siblings in St Helens on the 1871 and 1881 censuses. The 1871 entry gives her birthplace as Staffordshire. She is in St Helens in 1891 with her son, John LEE and in 1901 & 1911 as Martha CARNEY. Hope this helps.
  12. James Benjamin Green’s father is listed as James Benjamin Green, Carter (deceased) at the time of his marriage to Alice Langton at St Helens Parish Church on 29 October 1892. Do you have a copy of the certificate for his marriage to Jane Rankin at St John the Baptist, Toxteth Park in the June quarter of 1880 to confirm his father as James Benjamin? (An Ancestry member has James Benjamin being the son of George Green and Mary Ann Pritchard.) There are two James Green baptisms in 1856 in the Liverpool Parish records on Ancestry: 6 January 1856 at St John the Baptist, Toxteth Park: James son of James (Flour Dealer) and Mary Esther. 2 December 1856 at St Barnabas, Liverpool: James son of George (Clerk) and Mary Ann. And this one in 1857: 11 October 1857 at St Thomas, Liverpool: James son of George (Book Keeper) and Mary Ann. I presume you have already seen that there are two James Benjamin Green burials in common graves at St Helens Cemetery. James Benjamin’s widow, Alice, married Joseph Moore at Holy Trinity, Parr Mount on 26 November 1898.
  13. William and Mary Ellen married at St Mark, Haydock in the June quarter of 1919. Their marriage certificate would give details of their ages and fathers’ names. There are a number of registrations in the Warrington district (which covered Haydock) for Speakman children with Simm as the mother's maiden name in the years following the 1919 marriage. There is a 14 year old Mary Ellen Simm living in Clipsey Lane, Haydock with her parents, Charles Thomas and Elizabeth, on the 1911 census. There is also a 14 year old William Speakman living in Station Road with his parents, William and Mary Ellen.
  14. There is a tree on Ancestry with Joseph Chorley (born in Whiston in 1823). He is shown as the youngest of the eight children of William Chorley (1781-1836) and Elizabeth Heyes (1773-1832) who were married at Farnworth on 12 May 1800.
  15. I think James had some brothers, Richard, William, Alfred, Thomas and Isaac? (First three, lost during the Great War along with my great grandfather, Thomas (was blinded?) and Isaac both survived the war. James is on a tree on Ancestry which shows he was the son of James, who was born in Northwich, and Sarah (nee Doward). The 1911 census showed they had been married for 33 years and had 14 children (10 living and 4 dead). The children listed on the Ancestry tree are: James, Jane, Peter, Isaac, Richard, Sarah, Thomas, William, Elizabeth, Thomas, Alfred, May and Edith. The tree goes back a few generations if you are interested in further deatils
