Just found a Henry Shenmacker renting in Friars Walk, St Nicholas Parish Cork, again within walking distance of refinery and cathedral so a definite possibility.

Henry married Catherine Johnson. Her father was listed as a Brewer on her death certificate.

Would there have been a connection between Brewers and sugar boilers? I am thinking fermentation.....

Evans Thwaites refinery was close by. Also Samuel Abbot brewery.

In Liverpool Central Library Archive now Ancestry Tracing for my tree.
As I had the 1888 Gores Street/Surname Directory out had a quick look for you.

There is a Carl Schumacher sugar boiler at 24 Barlow St
               Daniel Schumacher sugar boiler at 50 Rockingham St
               Louis Schumacher sugar boiler at 201 Athol St
               Otto Schumacher sugar boiler at 56 Hopwood St

The 1891 Census RG12/2903 En. Dist 4 for 56 Hopwood St  Private House 4 rooms shows Otto Schumacher age 34 Married   Dock Labourer Born Hamburg, Germany
Wife Jessie  age 34 born Liverpool
Son Frederick age 8
Servant: Annie Howard Aged 19

Would suggest your relative Henry Schumacher died at 56 not 55 while staying with a relative.?

Following up this thread I am thinking out loud to see if anyone can shed some light.

I have lots of leads for Shumackers in Liverpool and Glasgow. At this time I am following up the Cork leads and I am unfamiliar with the Irish records.

Henry Shenmacher Friars Walk, Cork, Griffiths valuation 1852

Henry was a sugar boiler. He died in Liverpool in 1883, probate granted to widow 25 January 1884, in Liverpool.

According to my records a Henry Schumacher married Catherine (Kate) Johnston in St Finn Barr’s 1st December 1844 ( substantiated by subsequent birth certs in Scotland & England and an entry in Cork newspaper under Sochomorker)

If this is the same family I would expect them to have three children born 1846-1852 in this parish, St Nicholas, before moving to England around 1857.

The cathedral tells me that they do not have records for this period. Would there be separate records for St Nicholas?

I seem so close yet cannot find any records for their children born in Cork. Subsequent censuses all give their birthplaces as Cork.
