George bn c 1847

Samuel bn c 1849 md Mary Hinde 4.6.1871

William bn c 1850

Hannah/Anna bn c 1853

Henry bn 28.11.1854 md Mary Holmes 21.6.1875

John bn c 1857

Ellen bn c 1860 md James Halsall 1.1.1881

Lucy bn c 1862 md Henry Moran 3.10.1881

I know this is a bit late, but it could be the same family - same surnames involved anyway..

I have a William Lydiatt (1875-1930) in my tree who married a Nellie Dilliway (c.1876-1949, possibly Ellen b.1877) in 1896. In 1901 they have a daughter, Katie/Kate Lucy (1898-1957). The St Helens Deceased Search shows that the 3 of them were buried with Kate's husband Frances Albert Shacklady (1895/6-1955), a Sarah Isobel Whittingham (c.1888-1939) and a William Howarth (c.1866-1948). Grave reference is 37/994.

The 1891 census shows that Nellie's parents were Samuel (c.1847) and Mary (c.1851) - probably the Samuel and Mary you've already listed. Two doors away is another Dilliway family: Henry (1854), apparently with a wife Eliza (c.1862). I haven't researched the family, but it looks like there might a connection of some sort.

Best wishes,

Hi Sue,


Many thanks for your message.


It sounds as though you and I are researching the same tree. I have therefore left you a personal message and look forward to hearing from you again, either here, or through the line of communication suggested in my message to you.

Message for Jayelle Newbie - It looks like you have landed on the name of my great-grandfather, John Dilliway.  He had a son, also John, who was a cooper and who moved to Padgate, near Warrington, in Lancs.  His son, also called John, was also a cooper in the family business, and he was my father.  The family moved to a farm in Cheshire before WW2, which is where my father contracted 'Farmers' Lung Disease' - not a good way to die.  I became and engineer, and now live in Horsham, West Sussex.  Sorry, I have just seen what Newbie stands for.
