  1. can anyone help me please ?

    Not really what you are looking for but on 1939 register John Duffy b 25 Nov 1883 and wife Jane b 25 Mar 1884 are living at 114 Holly Bank St St Helens. Other possible children for Duffy/Woosey reg Prescot are Mary A 1917, Margaret A 1920 and Peter 1925. Unable to locate John Duffy birth reg in Prescot for 1883 - he may have been born elsewhere

    The marriage of Henry and Margaret is online at Lancashire Online Parish Clerk. It tells you the name of Bride & Groom's fathers

    Henry Swift married Margaret Atherton 16 April 1860 at Eccleston St Thomas . A copy of the marriage certificate will give the name of Henry's father. According to the census of 1871 Henry was born in Whiston nr Prescot. There are 2 Henry Swift birth reg at about this time - Q4 Prescot Henry Swift mother's name Rimmer and Q1 1846 Prescot mother's name Forshaw
  4. Locked people on 1939 census

    From my experience the locked people are children. If you can find the marriage of the parents you can search birth records by using the mother's maiden name and this should enable you to find who the locked people are.
  5. Incident at McColl's grocery + post office

    Apparently the Post Office came under attack from 4 men with an axe. Nothing was stolen and the man made their escape on foot. Police have arrested 4 men from Thatto Heath in connection with the raid

    Found a few births in Lancashire - one in Chadderton 1886, one in Ormskirk 1918, one in Toxteth Park 1913 and one in West Derby 1915. A couple of Census records - Mary Brookie b 1832 in Liverpool 1861 and another Mary Brookie b 1879 in Garston West Derby 1911

    Could well be wrong but I think they stayed at Lord Derby - I remember waiting outside ELE school on St Helens Road when they were driven past
  12. "Young Jingler"?

    Been looking at children of William Leadbetter & Jane Stott. William b 1868 and Richard 1870. In 1911 Census Richard is 41 and living with wife Maria 46 - looking at the photo again I wonder if the 3 paople are Ellen, Richard and his wife Maria. The photographer may be Old Jingler
  13. "Young Jingler"?

    Hi Underdog According to 1911 census William aged 62 - the man in the photo looks much younger to me - I wonder if it was taken much earlier than c 1910
