Lancashire Lookup Requests / Bohannan/Gleave Lower Thurlow Street Liverpool 1851
« on: Wednesday 06 September 17 12:43 BST (UK)  »
 I am back to my Bohannan search again and wondering after all these years if anyone can give me any more pointers? 
 I have a birth cert for Martha Bohannan mother Catherine Bohannan formerly Gleave, father James occc Shoemaker.
Martha was born in August 1848 at 14 Cuerdon Street Liverpool and registered in Sept 1848 as living at 3 Lower Thurlow Street liverpool.  I cant find this at all in 1851 census as I cant get into any road indexes ( beleieve Ancestry doesnt do them :(
 In the last two days I have realised that the family who live next door in the terribly messed up 1861 census in York Street were Martha is 14 seems to be her elder sister Sarah Ellen who is married to an Edward Graham.
 Found Marriages at St Peters for both a Caroline Bohannan and Sarah Ellen, father James Shoemaker (same on Marthas B cert and M cert) from Lancs Parish Clerk project and also a death/burial of James Bohannan Lower Thurlow St  May 1851 with his age at death as 51.
 So a lot of info but just not finding any marriage of Catherine Gleave and James Bohannan and nowhere to start as to were they may have been born because of lack of census info.
 Also oddly enough came across this in the Roots archives yesterday :
I am searching for the Liverpool family of a young girl, MARIA BOHANNAN
(could be spelt BOHANAN, BOHANNON etc), who was transported for stealing in
1837 to Hobart, Australia (known as Van Dieman's Land then) for 7 years.

When she was tried in Liverpool (1837) she was16 and hence was born around
1821. Her death certificate indicates that she was born in Liverpool and
that her father, James Bohannan was a shoemaker.
This was from someone back in 2000!

So if there are any detectives out there who may like a puzzle!

Just got this photo off my cousin today, I think it may be our great granddad John Murray b Ireland 1846. I know a lot of the family worked for White Star Line and am wondering if anyone can identify this uniform as being of the White Star Line and possibly a date?  Just looking through crew lists and there are a number of John Murrays but cant seem to pin this one down to White Star Line as yet. There seems to be a large gap in children born  that I have found to him and his wife Martha(nee Bohannon) between 1871 and 1881,but he is constantly down as a painter in the census I have found him in! There were also "stories" that he or possibly my granddad should have been on the Titanic but never went..........

Wales / William Davies b1862
« on: Tuesday 20 September 16 15:47 BST (UK)  »
I have William down as being born Holyhead Anglesey on 1901 census, but according to that so was his wife Mary (Riley) and she was born in Ireland.  According to records they married in Anglesey  in 1881. Family notes say he was born in Wales possibly Flintshire and was for some reason known as "Jack" Davies ???  He is named on his eldest daughters birth cert as William though! These notes also say he served in the Cheshire regiment but with no date, he would have been much too old for the 1914-18 war.    In 1881 census he was lodging in Beaumaris his trade a plasterer.  Any info would be brilliant as I seem to be banging my head against a brick wall on this one.

Anglesey / Mary Reilly b 1860 Holyhead Anglesey d 1903 St Dunns Hospital Ireland?
« on: Sunday 18 September 16 22:25 BST (UK)  »
I am looking for any info on above, she married William Davies and her father was Thomas Reilly who I have down as being a "tin man" in the 1881 census. I had loads of stuff and seem to have misplaced it from years back. I originally thought her mother was Catherine Smith (and put THAT in my original tree) Since I have started redoing the tree with all the new info on line I seem to have been mistaken and her mothers maiden name was O Hara :-[  I have about three weeks to get the tree redone (with new software! and hopefully correct this time!) as I want to try and get it printed for my sister in laws 73 Birthday ;D Her mum started the tree many years ago, she did some then I took it up in 2000. So anything would be greatly appreciated :)

Anglesey / 1911 Census
« on: Sunday 18 September 16 17:15 BST (UK)  »
Looking for Benjamin Higgins b 1878, his wife Margaret b 1882 and any children they may have had living with them in 1911 possibly London Road Anglesey?

Anglesey / Susan Jones 1851 Census
« on: Saturday 17 September 16 20:07 BST (UK)  »
Can anyone confirm that a Susan Jones was living at 19 London Road Holyhead on the 1851 census? Folio 514 seems to state apart from the Jones family I am looking for (Margaret Wife 41 and her children) that there is a Susan who is 60 and a widow, just wondering if this could be Margaret's mum in law. I now know Margaret was a Roberts before she married.

Can anyone tell me if there is anywhere in the Merseyside/Cheshire areas you can still go to a SHOP and buy Family tree maker software or does everything have to bought online now?

Anglesey Lookup Requests / 1841 census
« on: Thursday 25 August 16 18:51 BST (UK)  »
Can anyone find a Jones family (there is talk father was a Baptist minister) from Holyhead (Caergeiliog) After years of thinking my husbands GG grandma was a Williams I now have proof she was a Jones. Sarah was born in 1837 or 1838, so somewhere there should be a Sarah Jones about 4 years old in 1841. 

Anglesey Lookup Requests / Davies/ Reilly 1881
« on: Saturday 16 April 11 14:18 BST (UK)  »
Well after a long rest I am back to the grindstone of looking for my husbands lost ancestors.    I have a marriage of Mary Reilly( there have been a few different spellings) and a William Davies (March) 1881 in  Holyhead Anglesey. This was my husbands great nan and grandad, I have lots of info on them and Marys family past down in notes from hubby's mum from over 30 years ago. I have had no joy trying to trace any futher back on Williams side though, so would be grateful if anyone may be able to find his fathers name out for me ;D I know it will probably be an impossible task as there are so many Davies's in Holyhead :-\
