    Wane resigns at wigan.

    Be interesting to see how Wigan rugby club as a seperate entity are treated by the new owners.Although they have a long term rental agreement for the ground would it still have to honoured by any new owners?

    GG Grandmothers family name?

    Have the marriage cert between William Garner and Mary Gullivan and one of the witnesses is an Elizabeth Canning. Just read through the above thread on GenesReunited and came across a link to a thread on this site. Posted by yours truly. Must have been struggling for past 4 years with this.

    GG Grandmothers family name?

    That was my thought. But they must have misheard the name twenty years apart.(1871 and 1891)
  10. My gggrandmother was Mary Gullivan who married William Garner on 20/05/1872. She was 16 and he was 19 (From marriage cert) In 1861 Mary (6) is with her mother Sussanah Gullivan, brothers Paul (14)(Born in France),and Cornelius (3) born St.Helens By searching on the GRO site I found Cannon to be a common possibility for Sussanahs maiden name. I found a marriage between Sussana Cannon and Peter Gullivan on 16/071855 (Peter was name of father on Mary's marriage cert) In 1871 however I have Sussanah with daughter Mary(15), son Cornelius(13) and a Cornelius Canning a brother of Sussanah. And in 1891,among others I have, William Garner(head),Mary Garner(Wife) Cornelius Gullivan (Brother in law) age 33 and Cornelius Canning(Uncle) age 59. I am almost certain I have traced the correct family (despite various spelling of Sussanah and Gullivan) but am somewhat confused as to the two possible surnames for Sussanah. Any suggestions would be gratefully accepted. Or am I missing something glaringly obvious?

    Eldon Row.

    The person in question was George Littler (b.14/02/1873) Just realised my dad, Norman Glover,was born at 90,Eldon Street.George Littler was his dad so Eldon Row way have been a row of houses in Eldon Street.

    Eldon Row.

    I have a birth certificate for my great grandfather who was born in 1873 in Eldon Row (no number given). Anyone any idea where this was.The obvious area is around Eldon Street or even a row of houses in Eldon Street, but I cant find on the maps on this site.
  13. There are some of these blocks on the bridges across the canal between Appley bridge and Parbold.

    Suggestions for gggrandparent's name

    Hi again, managed to confirm most of information given above, but cant confirm marriage between James Chadwick and Jane Sharples (nee Pickavance). In 1861 census I have James and Jane with children, Nancy b.1843 and Mary b.1844. I was hoping I could find the maiden name of their mother from the GRO site. Unfortunately I cannot find a birth registered for the children, neither is there a birth registration showing on the freeBMD site. Can I ask where you got this info from please, just to confirm marriage.(For sake of completeness.) Thanks Jane Pickavance, Born Circa 1823, Windle, St.Helens... Baptised 27.07.1823 St Mary (now St Helen), St Helens, Lancashire, England. MARRIED:- Peter Sharples who died in 1853. She then Married James Chadwick (Glass Blower) on 30.08.1857.
