  1. Found Cornelius Lennon's Army Service Record. from 1890 to 1902. Details if your pal would like them.
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Without names of who you are looking for I cannot help you
  7. OK - so what exactly are you looking for ?
  8. 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
  9. 1939 register has 100 + entries for Bowe in St Helens and Whiston. Any particular Bowe you interested in ?
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. On the physical description alone I would doubt they are one and the same person. I have found a gravestone for a David Stanley Steele died 11 Aug 1948 buried Stanthorpe Cemetery, Queensland. Others on gravestone are Fay Susan Steele died 10 Nov 1959 aged 8 and Ted Steele died 15 Jan 1974 aged 48. Gravestone gives year of birth for David Stanley Steele as 1894. Can you advise as to where you got DOB of Joseph Hewitt as 4 Jan 1890
  13. British Royal Navy Seamen. Joseph Hewitt dob 17 Feb 1890 born St Helens, labourer at Glass works. Enlisted 27 May 1908 for 5+ years. Vivid 2 stoker 2nd class 27 May 1908 to 4 Oct 1908. Other ships and dates available if you want them. Most interesting is HMS Fantome joined 3 May 1911 remained until 5 Apr 1912 and then embarked on a run to Sydney. HMS Fantome from May 1913 to June 1914 was used as a survey ship circumnavigating Australia.and was transferred to the Royal Australian Navy 27 Nov 1914. This may well be your man as he is in the right place at the right time.
  14. This may help. 1911 census Joseph Hewitt 21 single stoker first class b Sacred Heart, St Helens, Lancashire, Roman Catholic. Either on board ship or living Naval establishment - unable to tell which
