  1. Marriage of Thomas Woodward and Mary Jane Greener both 20 married married 14 May 1888 at Prescot St Mary. Thomas a collier son of James Woodward collier. Mary Jane daughter of Nicholas Greener, glass blower. Both bride and groom sign with X
  2. OK - when the 1939 register was eventually published it was decided that those people who may well be alive at that time would be redacted. Must admit that 'rule' was not strictly adhered to. If you can click on to see the image then you ought to be able to see how many people in the household were redacted
  3. They may be redacted as they are possibly still alive
  4. Found Cornelius Lennon's Army Service Record. from 1890 to 1902. Details if your pal would like them.
  5. 23 Dec 1890 Sheffield Evening Telegraph Cornelius Lennon, a young labourer living 22 Portland Street, Warrington was found guilty of the assault of Mrs Isabella Harding and the assault of Charles Henry Barnes who came to the assistance of Mrs Harding. The magistrates characterised the conduct of the prisoner as most cowardly and sent him to hard labour for 6 months. No indication as to which court was involved - assuming Warrington
  6. Having said that I have found that Elizabeth Mather remarried 24 Aug 1844 at Prescot St Mary. Bride's father Joseph Frodsham Blacksmith. On 1851 Census family living Coal Pit Lane, Parr, St Helens
  7. Familysearch has the following - marriage entry for Henry & Elizabeth 8 Aug 1825 but no parents' names given. Baptism for a Henry Mather born 16 Dec 1803 at St Helens Lancs father Thomas. Baptism for a Betty Frodsham born 1806 at St Helens Lancs father Joseph Doubt you will ever find their parents' names as they are not mentioned on marriage entry in Rainford Church registers
  8. Cannot find any birth or marriage record for Thomas Bow/Bowe in Prescot/St Helens 2 deaths in Prescot - Thomas Bow died Q2 1856, no age given. and Thomas Bowe buried 4 Mar 1884 St Helens Cemetery age 6 weeks
  9. Without names of who you are looking for I cannot help you
  10. OK - so what exactly are you looking for ?
  11. marriage of John Kelly to Mary Bow registered Q4 1862 Prescot. Unable to find Church/Register office. 1871 census has Mary Kelly aged 40 b Ireland living with 4 children Henry, Michael, John & Thomas at 12 Bond Street, Prescot. Each son is registered with mother's maiden name as Bow. First 2 reg Prescot, last 2 reg Liverpool. John Kelly not on census at this address
  12. 1939 register has 100 + entries for Bowe in St Helens and Whiston. Any particular Bowe you interested in ?
  13. I have found a death notification for Pte 634 J Hewitt 2nd Bn Australia Imperial Expeditionary Force kia 9 Aug 1915. I have no means of viewing his service record so just speculation that he is your man.
  14. Very interesting - thanks for link. I noted that the baptism record is for St Thomas, Eccleston which is Church of England and Joseph Hewitt stoker 1st class who is on 1911 census is Roman Catholic. The newspaper cutting you have is clearly Joseph Hewitt stoker first class. The clincher for me is the description of David Steel on his enlistment papers in particular his tattoos. My opinion, for what it is worth, is they are different people
