Liverpool Lass, thanks so much for the new information, I'll give them a go.

Mo Jo, even the information you have given sounds very interesting.  I've been trying to dig further, not successful yet, but sure I'll get there.

FYI Edward McMahons second marriage was to Florence Dean.  We're not sure when, but youngest child was born in 1932 (although I think that there was a child born before that who didn't live).  Thanks for your help in researching, it's much appreciated, and my mum is delighted!

Thanks for your help though, I'm confused.  Mum says her Dad (Edward McMahon) said he was born in Dublin and he spoke with an Irish accent.  Maybe Richard put Liverpool on the census for some other reason? I would have thought that is the family as mum can remember uncle Dicky and auntie Mary. 

I've not managed to find any records yet, including marriages.  Edward McMahon b1884, was married twice, and I can't find anything out even about his first wife.

Any ideas where I should go next, I seem to be going round in circles!

Thanks a lot MoJo.  Through the familyhistoryonline website I have already uncovered the Langley family (married to Dean).  This is fantastic!

Thanks again

Hi MoJo

Thanks so much for your very quick reply, that is really helpful.  I had checked the 1901 census, but not beyond that.  I had found Daniel through another website, but it was very vague and showed no other information.  It looks very likely that he is the father of Richard, from your information.

I'm pretty new to the website, and have only recently started my family tree.  It's so nice, there are people like you to help. 

Edward McMahon born 1884 is my Grandfather.  Perhaps you could help with Edwards wife side, where I have also drawn a bit of a blank?

Thomas Dean b1856 married to
Annie b1854
Elizabeth b1886
John b1884

John Dean married Sarah Langley b1879 (I think she only died in 1980)
They had 4 children including Florence who married Edward McMahon

Any more help you can give would be much appreciated.

Hi, I am looking for any information for the McMahon family in Liverpool, or Birkenhead.  I have the following:

Richard McMahon 1867 married to
Catherine 1866
Edward 1884 (married Florence Dean, but this was second marriage)
Richard 1887
Mary 1896

I think Richards father may have been Daniel McMahon born 1841 in Ireland, but am not sure.

Any info would be much appreciate.
