    1881 census

    By Dave,
    Now that the 1881 census for the UK is freely available on the LDS site, I wondered if it'd be such a bad thing if I put my PDF doc of St Helens online? It has Eccleston, Windle, Sutton, Parr, Rainford & Haydock - mostly in street order. It's good for seeing who the neighbours were and for searching various things. At just over 8Mb it'd make a hefty download for anyone on dialup, but it's not so bad for broadband users. Reckon?

    web site

    By jill,
    I am having a go at making my own 'ickle site. I've just started it so it's still under consrtuction. It won't be very flashy, but I hope it will get the info across. The main St Helens families are Johnson,Collins, Cowley, but there are others all mainly from Lancashire. Please drop in at " groups.msn.com/jilliansgenealogy"


    By Marie,
    I am looking for any infomation on my great great grandmother Margaret Clarke, born around 1850 in St.Helens. She married Peter Aspinall, then later married Peter Almond.

    Parr and Pennington

    By bjthink,
    I'm trying to track down any information on LILIAN (Lily) PARR, born April 26th 1905 at 56 or 58 Union Street, St Helens. She died in Preston on May 24th 1978 and is buried in St Helens. Her father was GEORGE, a glass-worker, born 1875. Her mother was SARAH, formerly PENNINGTON. At the time of the 1901 census there were two children in the family, Lily's siblings, who may have living relatives, and it's these I'm trying to trace. The children were JOHN PARR, born 1897, and ELIZABETH PARR born 1899. There may have been one or two others before LILIAN's birth. Has anyone got any information on any of this family?

    Birch family

    By jill,
    I have been tracing my family for a couple of years now, and managed to get back to the mid 18c for a few branches. My lastest "finds" are the Birch family from Rainford. My research has found George Birch, b jan 1751, married Alice Lyon 1782. 11 children incl George b 1787 marr Elizabeth had 5 children incl Catherine b 1816,marr James Cowley 1835, they had 6 children. This is where I leave the Birch's and follow the Cowleys, who left Rainford and moved to Sutton, where they ended up living in the old Convent House on Fennys Lane after the nuns moved out. The interesting thing about the Birch family is they were all clay pipe makers and owned or rented their own workshops. I found this in a very interesting book "Rainford Clay Pipe Industry" by Davey. As usual I found this chioce nugget just as I had to get home. If anyone has any interest in the Birch or Cowley families I will be pleased to share
