Birth Place : Brick Croft, Runcorn 1848
« on: Thursday 31 August 17 20:56 BST (UK) »
Just found  that my wife has ancestors born in Runcorn. Sent for the birth certificate which we received today. Place of birth given as Brick Croft, Runcorn, but I have been unable to find where this is. Does anyone have an old map of Runcorn from 1840-1850 and can find it for me

There is Stone Croft on the 1876 map.
 https://www.old-maps.co.uk/index.html#/Map/350953/382754/13/100102 Brick Croft could have been renamed. There are references to Stone Croft in the old newspapers, but none for Brick Croft.

was Hannahs father John a Dockmaster ??  could this be her marriage ?

Marriage: 20 Sep 1869 Holy Trinity, Liverpool, Lancashire, England
 Robert Gornall - Full, Coach Builder, Bachelor, 11 Canterbury Street
 Hannah Grundy - (X), Full, Spinster, 20 Pitt Street
     Groom's Father: Robert Gornall, Gentleman
     Bride's Father: John Grundy, Dock Master
     Witness: Thomas Pearson, (X); Hannah Pearson, (X)
     Married by Banns by: Gustavus Carson A. K. A. Off. Min. Off.Minister
     Register: Marriages 1863 - 1874, Page 154, Entry 307
     Source: LDS Film 1656017

if it is - looks like she married in to money - her father in law is a "Gentleman "

Unfortunately they don't seem to be in Runcorn in the 1841 census.
