World War Two / Re: Liverpool and Merseyside Blitz
« on: Wednesday 22 May 13 23:30 BST (UK)  »
I lived in Ashfield (it's not Ashfield Road!) from 1945 to 1968. I was married in St Thomas's Church - now demolished - in 1968. My mother told me about the terrible loss of life from the 'landmine' in 1940. She was due to be married in St Thomas's in 1941 but the church window had been blown out so her wedding took place at Childwall instead. It was a lovely street to live in, with a great mix of housing types and good people. My grandfather, Thomas Burrows, a hay carter, had lived in our house in Ashfield since almost when it was built around 1910. He died there in 1949.

Hi Camart, the only Paterson death I can find in the Old Parish Registers with the date "26 Sept 1842" was a child James Paterson, 3 months old, son of Thomas Paterson, but in Kilsyth, Stirling. 
Can you give the sources for the death your John Paterson, Gardener at Galashiels House, and for Isabella Paterson MS Hislop.
Thank you

My cousin, (*) Evans, emigrated from Liverpool, England to South Africa in the 70s.  He will be in his 60s now.   (*) married Maria in the 70s or 80s and I believe they had two children, a son (*) and a daughter.(*) mother, (*) Evans, went out to live with them in the 80s. If anyone can help me with a contact address I would be very grateful.
