Lancashire / Re: James Merrion & Eliza 1871
« on: Yesterday at 22:57 »
I've just finished searching the disc and I can't find them anywhere in Gerard St.  It seems strange they are not there given the time span of the baptisms, marriage and 1881 census. 

As William was born so late in 1871 - I'm sure James would have died after the 1871 census so perhaps the family had gone on a visit to Ireland.   Eliza would have been barely pregnant at that time.

There is an 1876 death in Liverpool of a James Marron aged 55 but I can't find a burial record to check his address nor can I find an 1871 entry for that name to rule him out

EDIT

James was born abt 1826 Belfast Ireland,

1861 shows his birth year as 1822 so above death is a possibility

It wasn't uncommon in Liverpool for people to use "convenience" addresses when they married so it's possible the same may have happened here. 

If people wanted to marry at a particular church outside of their own parish - they "pretended" to live locally.  In some cases - the address didn't even exist and in others it belonged to friends or relatives

Yes - Gerard St is full of multi occupied properties - very few have only one family in them.  I will probably be cross eyed looking at them all ;D

I remember that if I referred to "she" without making it clear who "she" was, I used to be asked "Who's she  - the cat's mother?"

Oh that really takes me back - I used to get exactly the same response

After I've watched Holby City and the really "must see" last episode of Mrs Wilson, I'll scroll through all the Gerard St images to see if I can spot them.  No promises - the enumerator should have been given a handwriting test before they hired him!!

Found 29 but the occupants were Dennis Smith 26 b Ireland  wife Mary 30 and daughter Bridget aged 3

Piece number is 3790 and folios are from 5 to 32 as Gerard St flips around a lot
