Hi Bona,

Thanks for clearing up all the info on Mary Ann, how sad that your great grandfather was orphaned at such a young age.

Yes I initially asked in the other thread about info relating to my Indian g.g.great grandmother and to find her origins. Her daughter married George . Also if orphans were sent back to England. So it is essentially the same story.

Yes Trish don't  we uncover some sad stories in the lives of our ancestors.

 Had a break through today!  Found George's son 's death (George Henry) notice in 1897 New Zealand . At the end of notice it says please copy to Liverpool papers. So this strongly suggests the family came from Liverpool. Still haven't found him yet though. Thankyou everyone for help in Staffordshire.

I think another family researcher maybe confused Gt Harwood with Gt Haywood ?? It must have been sometime ago and it has just stuck and been passed around various sites and trees as accurate. I have only recently started on this branch of the family beyond George Henry's daughter, Eveline Cecelia, my grandmother's mother.As we all know it pays where possible to verify information with a doc. or parish entry. Old newspapers online are fab too, to fill in gaps.  Thanks Chris, I have had a quick look too .

There are quite a few Bradburns in Liverpool in the 1891 census, including a merchant named Randal Bradburn born Lichfield circa 1827. Lichfield is 12 miles from Great Haywood. There's also a widow Harriet Bradburn born Rushton circa 1826. Rushton is about 25 miles from Great Haywood.
