Hello and welcome  :)

Sorry this is mostly questions.

Where do you have James as born Louth?
Do you have the marriage details for James and Jane? Thus would give you his father's name.

I have seen a published tree which has Jane's name as Cashmore but I see it as 'Brithwhite'.  :-\

Yes, now I see Mary and James with mother Cashmore and George with mother   Brithwhite or Brethwhite.

It does help if you give references or as much info as you have.

Regards
Heywood

Looks like the family in 1901- or at least Jane & 2 sons-

1891 census shows Jane & children all born England-
https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:7QWG-FW2

As the marriage was likely in England you need to see that certificate to see the name and occupation of James' father before trying to trace his Irish origins.

Yes I have those censuses too plus baptisms for those children (with a different mother's name for George) but can't find the couple in 1881 or a marriage yet.  :-\

Liverpool Catholic records. If you need them I can transcribe them.
Where do you get Louth from?
Do you have Jane in earlier censuses?
