In the 1949 electoral register for 14 Westminster Rd., Wallasey

There was listed

James F. McEwan
Ethel McEwan
Colin C. McEwan

Perhaps the register was compiled in 1948 and pub. in 1949

In the 1951 electoral register, at the same address, we have

Ada McEwan
James F. McEwan

Not sure how Ada is related

Carol, thank very much indeed for this additional piece of information. I really appreciate it and I know my friend will be thrilled. Itís really difficult for us to find anything more recent so this helps a lot.

Jay ;)

Thank you both very much.

I am helping a friend with this research. He was adopted and is trying to find out more so obviously the information we have to hand is at present very limited save the name and address of his father in his adoption papers. We went to Wallasey Library several days ago and had a look at the electoral registers and found the McEwan family living at the address I gave in my previous post.

My friend is hoping to make contact with someone related to this family.

Many thanks

I am interested in finding out more information on the McEwan family. They were living at 14 Westminster Road, Wallasey in the late 1940s and early 1950s.

The couple who lived there were James and Ethel McEwan who I think were married in 1917. They had a son born in 1928.

Many thanks

Hello Don

Many thanks for your reply.

How interesting. I havenít really done anything more on this family since my previous post which seems to have been several years ago now.  How time flies!

Iíve reached an impasse with my research so any details you have regarding the TOMKINSON family would be gratefully received. I am particularly interested in Thomas Tomkinson who married Margaret Bayley. I donít know anything about him apart from the fact that he was in possession of a property belonging to the Coke family. 

The descendants of this marriage ended up at Dorfold Hall near Nantwich.  The Tomkinson and Bayley families seemed to have retained contact as I have personal correspondence which evidences this.  There was also a legal dispute when James Tomkinson of Dorfold Hall refused to hand over the legal papers relating to the estate of James Bayley of Stapeley Hall who died in 1764.

There are more papers at the National Archives re this so I need to order these at some point.

Hi Angela

Thank you for your reply. Yes, there were Bowkers involved in photography in Nantwich. I am sort of guessing that they might be connected to me very distantly but I havenít really looked to be honest.

I will send you the details in a personal message (so check your Rootschat message inbox) regarding my friends connection to your Joseph Bowker.

I need to establish who was resident at an address in 1950, and wondered if it is possible to do this?

The address I am interested in is 14 Westminster Street, Wallasey.

Many thanks
