JAMES ALDRIDGE - born Liverpool 1875-77 - Census query
« on: Monday 16 October 17 17:32 BST (UK) »
Hi,

I thought that my great grandfather James Aldridge was the son of James Aldridge and Jane Hughes with 4 sisters.
However My dad tells me that his grandfather had about 5 brothers ( as he remembers his Uncle Richie) so now on checking the 1881 census on a website I came across this info :- 

Court- Upper Mann Street, Toxteth - John H aged 9, William aged 8, James age 4 ( my great grandad) and Richard aged 1 but no parents details mentioned???

Can anybody see any more info as to names of parents especially, their ages and place of birth.?

I'm hoping I havent made a boob on this as I may have to redo my tree!!! Oh dear....

Thanks

Hello,

The one you have mentioned is the son of William and Mary A. They are also on the census, although William is on the previous page.

Do you have your Jamesí marriage details?

1891 2930/71 shows James with parents William and Mary.

Who does he give as his father on his marriage certificate?

Hi Heywood, I dont have a full copy of his marriage cert but I guess I will need to order a copy. All I hvae is that they were married in St Nicks in 1896.

I clearly need to do some more research.... ::)

I would say that you need to get the certificate to check.

There is a marriage 25th December 1899 St Matthews Toxteth Park

James Aldridge 21 yrs father James, Striker 92 Grafton Street
Jane Lee 23 yrs father William Henry 23 Grafton Street

Could this be the James you found earlier?

I dont think so as my James who married Susan Butler was married in 1896.

I had James's parents originally as James Aldridge ( snr) and Jane hughes but am now backtracking and agreeing with you and Rosie that it must be William & Mary as that would tie in with the no of sons as my dad knew there were a few brothers whereas James & Jane Hughes had several daughters.
