Was she a Methodist?

Have you considered the marriage on Dec 20 1919 of
Joseph HARRIS and Lilian Maud BROOME (aged 21 and father William)
in the United Methodist Church, Spring Street, Hollingworth, Cheshire

Civil UK Ref# Ashton, Lancashire, Cheshire; Oct-Nov-Dec 1919; Volume 8d; Page 1331

Myluck! - If I was marrying my husband in this day and age, I might well do the same thing.  I expect it's especially necessary if you are a professional and have a certain reputation.  However, after over 30 years, he might get upset if I start using my maiden name.  Retirement beckons :-)

I was ahead of my time keeping mine and after my thirty years the OH would wonder what I was up to if I changed mine! When newly engaged I remember an aunt asking me what my married name was going to be and I answered my then (and now and forever!) last name. She perked up and asked "has he the same name as you?" and once I answered I was lectured on respect for my spouse.....
Over the years I struggled with schools insisting on calling me Mrs..., people questioning the name of my next-of-kin, assumptions of all sorts, even my husband has been awarded my name on several ocassions over the years! Which to be fair he has taken to quite well.

My pet peeve on names is not using just one - I know people who are one name at work and another everywhere else. If you change, change; if you don't, don't!

Followed by changing your name for a job; Hilary Rodham kept her name in the mid 1970s when she married against the norms of the times but showing a liberal, feminist view. It was an issue for her husband when he stood for governor a few years later. In the 1980s she became Hilary Rodham Clinton to aid his political career. In 2000 while campaigning in her own right she campaigned as Hilary and her media advertisements dropped both surnames; by the end of the decade she was Hilary Clinton! What's in a name I ask you?

I have never used my husband's last name for anything!
However, some family history software will automatically give a man's last name to a woman once the relationship is shown as married but not as partner.
I haven't found a way to prevent it either!

Is this the John HUGHES who
married Rachel Garth LANGLEY on Sep 26 1887 in Guisborough?

He was aged 34 at that time and gave his father's name as Harry HUGHES

This could help locate him accurately

Where is she on the 1939 register as I think I am finding her as Elizabeth D BRETT DoB 01.03.1913
If this is her perhaps she was registered as Elizabeth

Also I have had many a relative whose name in later life did not accurately reflect their birth records e.g. Mary Martha being Matilda all her life!

James was still in Tipperary on Feb 5 1872 as he was a sponsor to Margaret's son Richard FOGARTY LINK
See top of page on the right

You could investigate this death of James NEILY in 1925 LINK
He was a lay brother in Mount St Joseph's Abbey, Roscrea
They are a Cisterian order of monks LINK
However he could have been from anywhere but the age is about right

Dora Ryan born 1889 at Ballymote


Not sure of the connection here as this Dora does not have the same parent's names unless she is a cousin

The family of Patrick RYAN 1870-1939 and Katherine BARRON  seem to be
John b Feb 26 1898 at 15 Grey Square (on 1901 and 1911 census)
Patrick Joseph b Spet 06 1899 at 15 Grey Square (on 1901 and 1911 census)
James Anthony b Oct 15 at 8 Gray Street; d Oct 26 1901 aged 13 days of convulsions
Frances Mary b Feb 13 1903 at 8 Gray Street (on 1911 census)
James Francis b May 01 1905 at 8 Gray Street (on 1911 census)
Dora Eileen b Jan 31 1907 at 8 Gray Street (on 1911 census)
Mary Josephine b Mar 24 1909  at 78 Donore Avenue (on 1911 census)
Kathleen Veronica b Jun 05 1911 at 78 Donore Avenue
Joseph b Nov 18 1914 at 78 Donore Avenue
Richard bc 1918

They are all listed on various family trees on ancestry although some of the facts given I would double check based on the few searches I have done

It is possible that the owners of one of these trees may be able to help locate living relatives

Thanks.    I did have the marriage record.  That was how I found out about the RYAN family.  But, you are right, parts of it were hard to read.

If I were to send a letter to that street address, how should the address be written?


There are no RYANs or NEALEYs currently at the address
by the year 2000 planning permission was requested from the council by the then owner which is an unrelated name
