I am researching my great grandmother.
The reason I will post it here is because of the matching surname and place of birth area.
I understand any information is limited as it is a popular name.

Mary Delia Higgins
Born - About 1886,
Cloonfinnaun, County Mayo

Father : Thomas Higgins (Farmer) *
((Marriage Certificate Evidence))

Residence :
1911 26 Manor House, Humphrey Lane, Urmston, Lancashire, England
Marital Status: Single;
Relation to Head: Servant

January 1912 Barton upon Irwell, Lancashire, England
Church of the English Martyrs, 5 Roseneath Rd, Urmston, Manchester M41 5AX

Married : George Townley (18831928)

Birth of Daughter :
Mary Ruth Townley (19132002)
6 Sep 1913 Stockport, Cheshire, England

Birth of Son : Eric Townley (19231989)
28 Jan 1923 Stockport, Cheshire, England

Death : 30 Nov 1928 Stockport, Cheshire, England

My mission is to find any other information on this town she was born in as I can't find much.
But mainly, now i have mentioned her on this forum maybe somebody in the future has a similar link.

Okay I see now. I was using the wrong search function. I appreciate your reply thank you for helping me. Big help.

When searching a name or word using the main search function the results don't seem to offer date order, instead they look like relevancy or so I think.
Why isn't there a date order for the results using this function?
Sometimes the results can have hundreds of pages.

It is possible i suppose that it could be the same family but without further research into the news article of that day and learning more about the source it is unlikely I can make a connection to mine.
Big families were the norm back then.
I wouldn't be surprised if there are lots of super sized families.

I hope you are and your families are doing well. Looking over our conversation,
our Dace connections are strong.
We have connections exactly around Cannock, Cheslyn Hey, which is but 3 miles down road in and around Bloxwich.
Stay good.

Hi mate.
As we have discussed my Great Great Grandfather, was born in Stackstead, Rossendale. He was James Herbert Tattersall who married Emma Kibble.
I am going to take another good look through the files and see if I can find any reference to Disleys amongst his files.
The Tricketts are definitely there.
