Lancashire Lookup Requests / Missing 3, 3 x great aunts.
« on: Wednesday 29 July 20 03:36 BST (UK)  »
Hello all.
I have three, 3 x great aunts who just seem to disappear.
First is Mary baptized 25th Dec 1819 at Manchester Cathedral, parent's Jonathan Ogden, a Dyer, and Mary, no further records found.
Second is Martha baptized 20th Oct 1822, ditto, last appears in the 1841 census with parents but wrongly named Matilda.
Third is Elizabeth baptized 1st Jan 1826, ditto, last appears in the 1851 census with mother and eldest brother John W Ogden.
The father Jonathan was a Dyer when baptizing the children but a School Master in 1841. Either of these occupations would normally appear on marriage certificates for the girls, if found, and did on both son's marriages.
But in particular, Family Search have a Mary Ogden buried 25th June 1822, age 2, and parent's Jonathan and Mary but no occupation stated and no image. I am unable to find this record on Ancestry for some reason. So i wondered if some body may be able to find an image or alternative record which confirms this Jonathan's occupation?
There was another similar couple baptizing children at the same time, same Cathedral, but occupation Coal Miner.
Any help would be just great.

England / William Edward Maloney born 1890, Hulme, Manchester.
« on: Tuesday 28 November 17 05:59 GMT (UK)  »
Hello all.
Would it be possible for someone with access to the 1939 register transcriptions to lookup details of  William Edward Maloney living at Batley MB, Yorkshire, England for me. I currently have a subscription to FindMyPast but the register is not included. My ancestor was born 10th March 1890 and there appears to be only one born between 1888 and 1892 so the one in the register is likely mine.

Family History Beginners Board / Mary Hannah Walmsley nee Ogden b.1842 in Manchester.
« on: Monday 18 September 17 22:51 BST (UK)  »
Hello folks.
Mary Hannah Walmsley nee Ogden is my GGG Aunt and I have been unable to find her following her marriage in 1860 and baptism of a daughter, Mary Alice, in 1863.
My hope is that this post, and my previous post, may eventually result in contact with her decendants or others interested in her, if any exist, who may be able to assist me.

Immigrants & Emigrants - General / Passenger lists mid 1800's.
« on: Friday 15 September 17 11:00 BST (UK)  »
Hello all.
My gg grandfather's eldest daughter, Mary Hannah Ogden married John Walmsley in 1860. She was born in 1842 in Manchester. In the 1861 census she was aged 19, married, and a boarder, and John was married but living with his parents. A daughter, Mary Alice, was born 1863 and lived only 2 years. The name "John Walmsley" is very common but he seems to be a boarder and married in 71,81 and 91 if it is him. Of Mary Hannah there is no record thereafter. I am as certain as I can be that there are no marriage, death or census records for her thereafter. I would really like to discover what happened to her. The 2 possibilities are a move overseas, possibly with John, or she found an alternative man and adopted his name.
Is there anybody with experience and access to passenger lists who could check for me please?
I have previously posted this subject on the LostCousins forum without success.
Any assistance would really be appreciated.

Lancashire Lookup Requests / James Swindells 1807-1865
« on: Monday 29 May 17 04:12 BST (UK)  »
I have been unable to locate a birth/baptism for my g g grandfather, James Swindells, born in Bolton, Lancashire, according to his Navy discharge papers dated 1846. He joined in 1824 age 17 years.
According to the 1861 census, James, a Greenwich pensioner, aged 54, claims Stockport, Cheshire, as his birth place.
I seem to have drawn a blank in both places.
Any help with this would  be really apreciated.

The Lighter Side / value of income in 1843.
« on: Saturday 09 April 16 03:32 BST (UK)  »
Hello all.
With the release a day or so ago by FindMyPast of pensions for navy personnel and royal marines, I have discovered that my royal marine gg grandfather was awarded, in 1843, a pension of 15 pounds and 4 shillings annually on the basis of 21 years nett service it having been reduced by one year for enlisting one year under age and ten days loss of pay following a court martial.
Could anybody give me an idea of just how much this amount would be worth in todays currency.

Wicklow / John Davy 1876-9th September 1904.
« on: Saturday 26 March 16 21:27 GMT (UK)  »
Hello all.
I am researching my wifes Irish family history, she was born in County Louth in 1937.
Although we know a lot about her paternal grandfather, John F (possibly Finbar) Davy, we are unable to locate his burial in 1904.
John was acting as a chauffeur for a Mr Gray and family but it appears that Mr Gray fancied a go at driving himself and whilst approaching Wicklow Town on Marlton Hill where there is a sharp curve a rear wheel calapsed (wooden) and the car rolled over crushing John in the process. The other passengers received only minor injuries apparently. John was taken to Wicklow County Infirmary and died shortly thereafter. The Coroner released his body for burial the same day, the 9th September 1904.
John and his wife, Anne, and 5 children, lived in one room on Clanbrassil Street, Dublin, a fair distance from the accident and I doubt that Anne had any spare cash for either travel or a burial.
Accordingly, I wondered if John was buried as a pauper in a cemetery adjacent to the infirmary and although he was a Catholic this may not have been known.
I wondered if a local genealogist/historian on the forum may have some knowledge of what may have happened to John or where I may be able to find information regarding his burial. Incidentally, John does not appear to have been buried in any of the Dublin South Cemeteries.
If anybody can help it would be really appreciated.

Graveyards and Gravestones / Request regarding photographs of memorials in Manchester.
« on: Saturday 01 November 14 22:41 GMT (UK)  »
Hello all.
I have reluctantly realised that i will be unable to travel to Manchester from New Zealand now and wondered if anybody living  close to the following two cemeteries would be able to locate and photograph 3 memorials for me. I realise that there may not actually be a memorial stone.

St Mary's R C Cemetery, Manchester Road, Wardley, Worsley, Manchester M28 2UJ.
Annie Davy died 10th November 1944. Grave number M7.

St Joseph's RC Cemetery, Moston Lane, Moston, Manchester M40 9QL.
Maureen Davy died 12 th December 1937. Grave number St James 1887.
Hannah Bella Swindells died 30th April 1892. Grave number 1150 Section J (Public Inscription Grave)

If anybody can do this for me i would be most appreciative.
Thank you and regards.

Ireland / Irish electoral records, 1920 to 1940.
« on: Sunday 21 September 14 10:25 BST (UK)  »
Hello all.
Are Irish electoral records available anywhere, preferably online?
My wife was born in 1937 in Milestown, Castlebellingham, County Louth.
The family relocated to Manchester later the same year and my wife would like to establish the address where she was born.
The family have no recollection of the address, above info from birth certificate. We wonder if her parents would be listed sometime during the 1920/40 period.
Thanks. kiwigeoff.
