St Michaels Garston Liverpool
« on: Wednesday 04 January 12 11:16 GMT (UK) »
I'm researching my ancestors in Garston Liverpool and according to a newspaper cutting from September 1881 I find that my great great grandfather (Allan Prophet) was buried in a family grave in St Michaels churchyard in Garston. He was born about 1796.
There is an email contact for the church, but I can't get a response. Obviously being a family grave it suggests there are more of my ancestors buried in the plot, which I would be delighted to find out about.
Can anyone advise me please.

Allen Keef Prophet christened 5th sep 1869 - father John Prophet / mother Mary Jane is the earliest Prophet record I can find in Garston...do you have any earlier ?....allan
ADDED...John Prophet married Mary Jane Franklin in june qtr 1869 at st michaels, Garston ( this came under Wavertree register office )
www.lancashirebmd.org.uk  so...I would think that Mary Jane Franklin was living in Garston ....census states she was born in Liverpool 1849...let me see if I can find her ....she should be in Garston in 1861 census with a little luck

The 1871 census shows Allen bn in Northwich Cheshire living with his son James aged  40 also born Northwich. maes's wife Elizabeth was born in Warrington. james is a licenced victualler. Allen is listed as lab.

The 1841 has Allen in Leftwich (next to Northwich) Cheshire. He is a shoemaker aged 40 with wife Jane 35 and Ann 15, James 10 and Allen 5. All born in Cheshire

By 1851 only Allen aged 49 and Jane aged 48 in the family home leftwich. Allen a waterman.

1861 Allen a lodger with William and Elizabeth Bolton in Toxteth park. Elizabethwas born Northwich so may be relalated. Allen widowed and a labourer.

It's all building up very well. My great grandfather was the licenced victuallerat the Victoria for quite a few years. I'll try and absorb all this good information and thanks very much.

Thanks Gibel....that`s a great help....somehow I had a feeling that they had come around the year of 1869 ..and Mary Franklin was the Garston family
Berry....your great grandfather must have been an extremely hard man ..to run the Vic 130 years ago...it was (and still is ) a dockside town..the last dock on the south of the Liverpool docks...a rough / tough area - sailors everywhere - it took a certain type of man to run a pub in an area like that......allan
