    Dave, thanks for this. I will now add Thomas' details to my tree.

    Thomas Davies

    Dave, Enoch and Ellen were his grandparents. I'd like to know if he's still alive, there's a good chance he'd be 80. The 1939 register shows one closed account, Thomas' record is shown which usually means that he has passed, yet I can't find any record of his death. He may well have moved from the area bit of a long shot really but you never know.

    Thomas Davies

    For my family tree I'm looking for a Thomas Davies born St Helens 6 March 1938, father Albert (1901-1962) mother Florence (nee Ashcroft 1904-1957). In 1939 the family lived in Dorothy Street Thatto Heath. Any help info gratefully received.

    Bulls Head in Parr:New Build

    What's happened to the pub then? Had my first legal pint in there in 1968. 27 bus from Ravenhead used to stop next to the pub (nothing to do with my pint incidentally), 2/6d (25p) from Royal Grove, what a memory! That was a stack of money in those days.

    Fowley Common Culcheth

    Thanks everyone for your input, my ancestor was an agricultural labourer, his address in the 1841 census was Fowley Common, bit vague that, I looked on Google and found Fowley Lane, next time we're over in St H I'll take a trip up to Culcheth and see what I can find. Thanks for the pub link HenryJ (always a good start) and the photo's Phyill. Cheers

    Marrying a brother-in-law

    Didn't Henry V111 marry his dead brother's wife Catherine of Aragon in the1500's? Mind he married most things with a pulse!! But was he happy?
