Millard is such an unusual name in this area, I checked the Cambusnethan burials again.

Plot E1369.
WILLIAM MILLARD. Coatbridge, aged 7 years & 6 months.
Parents - Joseph Millard & Sarah Crossan.
23rd June 1915.

ELIZABETH MILLARD. Wishaw, aged 1 year.
Parents - Joseph Millard & Sarah Crossan.
5th February 1908.

Plot E1822.
STILLBRON LANNIGAN.
Parents - Samuel Lannigan & Roseanne Millard.
13th August 1915.

I couldn't find any Millards in the 1922 or 1925 Motherwell & Wishaw directories but there was a family of Millwards at Flemington Street, about half a mile from Shieldmuir.

Hi Lodger,

Richard Jordan was born about 1859 in Bilston, Staffordshire although I do not have 100% confirmation of that as yet. His parents were Samuel Jordan & Elizabeth Talbot (Although the marriage certificate says Turbot). He was first married to Eliza Cashmore 12th January 1878 in Tipton Worcestershire. They had 4 children, Elizabeth, Samuel, Florence & Rachel. Eliza died 9th September 1889, 8 Albert St, Shettleston, Lanark. Richard then married Elizabeth Hanson 1st May 1891, Avon Street, Motherwell. They had the children mentioned in my previous post. Richard died 19th September 1907, 63 English St, Craigneuk, Dalziel. Their son James was born 1st April 1907, 63 English Buildings, Shieldmuir, Dalziel. James married Elizabeth McLaughlan 14th June 1929 Eastwood, Lanark. On his marriage certificate his address was 42 Ladysmith Street, Wishaw.

After Richard died, my grandmother Elizabeth Hanson/Jordan married John Wylie 6th January 1909, 19 Howard St, Glasgow. Both were listed as living at 96 English St, Shieldmuir, Wishaw. Elizabeth died 5th November 1951, 37 Ladysmith St, Craigneuk.

Please let me know if you require any more information as I have all birth, death and marriage certificates for Richard, Elizabeth and all their children except for the birth of Great Grandpa Richard. Verifying English research is so much harder than Scottish.
Kindest regards,
Liz

Hi Liz
Just come across this thread and think it is possible that my grandfather Frederick William CASHMORE was cousin to Eliza Cashmore born Tipton, first wife of Richard JORDAN.  I believe her parents to be Thomas CASHMORE and Ann MILLWARD/MILLARD.  I would be very grateful for any details you can give me.  I would be delighted to give you more CASHMORE info, but as this was a first marriage, it is probably not of interest.
Kind regards

Hello Lise,
I apologise for any delay in getting back to you as I am researching other branches of my tree as well with other posts on here and I do not seem to be getting all e-mail notifications of posts.
As for Eliza Cashmore, I have not followed down that path as her parents (Thomas Cashmore & Annie Hillard) are not directly related to me. However, in saying that, the children of Richard Jordan and Eliza Cashmore are related to me.
The information I have relating to Eliza is that she was born 1858 in Tipton. Married my Great Grandfather Richard 12th January 1878 and died 9th September 1889, 8 Albert Place, Shettleston of Rheumatism, Heart Disease.
I have a little information on Eliza & Richard's children (the most is on Florence).
I am more than happy to share any information I have on the Jordan's with you although our only connection would be through Richard and Eliza's children.
Kindest regards
Liz

There would be no Sidebottoms in Wishaw/Motherwell after about 1907 as they moved to Northern Ireland.

George Sidebottom and Mary Ann Cashmore were my great-grandparents.  After they died their eldest son, George (b1885) moved himself and all his younger siblings to Northern Ireland.  He remained there for the rest of his life.  One brother later moved to Canada, and his sister Rachel (the only girl) later moved back to Scotland where she lived in St Andrews for the rest of her life.  She was unmarried.  George and the two youngest brothers lived in Londonderry.

I am also interested in any Sidebottom records. I know that George (senior) was the youngest of five brothers and their father was Isaac Sidebottom but I can't get any further back beyond Isaac.  They were not a Scottish family - George snr moved to Motherwell from Manchester (via Barrow-in-Furness) as he worked in the iron & steel industry.

Hello,
I was very interested in this post as my mother and grandmother were born and grew up in English buildings. I was wondering about the source of a lot of the information. I would be interested in reading/researching more. Lodger, you mentioned a 1922 Wishaw street directory: how can that be accessed? Thanks,
Alison

Hi Alison, welcome to Rootschat.
As far as I know, I have the only copy of the 1922/1925 Directory for the burgh of Motherwell & Wishaw.
I'd be happy to do a "look-up" for you.

Hi Lodger,
Thanks for the quick reply. I am interested in Mulheron, Devaney (I think you already mentioned) and McGinnis living in English Street/English buildings.
Thanks again
Alison

Hi Alison,

According to the 1922 part of the directory -

MULHERON A. 85 English Buildings.
MULHERON S. 77 English Street.
MULHERON J. 90 English Buildings.
MULLHERON Mrs. 85 English Street. (note the spelling)
MULHERON S. 90 English Buildings.

In the 1925 part of the book, which is by street, not alphabetically as the 1922 was,

77 English Buildings - STEVEN MULHERON, ironworker.
85 English Buildings - MARY MULHERRON, widow. (spelling).
90 English Buildings - JAMES MULTHERON, builder. (spelling).

1922 -

DEVANCY M. 77 English Buildings. (spelling).

That's all I could find I'm afraid.
Paterson, Torrance, Gilchrist - Hamilton Lanarkshire.
