Lancashire / Owen Mahon 1851 Chorlton on Medlock
« on: Yesterday at 17:09 »
Hi. Could anyone help me find Owen Mahon in the 1851 Manchester census please. He was the brother to my 3x great grandmother, Catherine Mahon. Born in Ireland in about 1826, his address in the 1841 census was James Leigh St. He married Ellen White in 1843 giving his address as James St, father Michael Mahon. I have reason to believe he died in 1853 at the age of 27. Whilst I realise that the 1851 census was badly damaged, if any kind person has the resources to do a look up for me, it would be very much appreciated. Many thanks as always.

Hi. I have a photo of my grandfather, Joseph Rigby, 9th Lancers, dated about 1920, on a carte postale. On the reverse side to the left, is very feint writing which is only visible when the image is darkened. As I only have the technology of my phone, I was wondering if anyone could make it more readable. I understand if itís not possible. Also was the carte postale only used in France? Many thanks as always.

Lancashire / Alice Ann Kay 8 Simpson St Burnley
« on: Tuesday 02 February 21 10:32 GMT (UK)  »
Hi. I think I may have hit a brick wall here, but maybe someone can help. Alice Ann Kay born 1865 had 2 children, Edward 1884 and James Wallace 1887. Both birth certificates have no father listed. In her subsequent marriage in 1896 to Rueben Greenwood she is a spinster. All her siblings at that time were living in the adjacent street, Stock Street. Her parents had both died by 1884, her father being the last in 1884, abode Tunstall St. My questions! Is there any way of finding who was also living at 8 Simpson St between 1884 and 1887, as nothing is relatable in the 1881 and 1891 census? Would an unmarried mother, weaver, living alone, be admitted to the workhouse for the births? This really is my last effort to find more, so hopefully someone can help. Many thanks as always.

Hi. Can anyone please make out the first word of the paragraph please. It relates possibly to a medical diagnosis of James Green. In 1918, on discharge he was sent to the Ďasylumí in Lancaster, where he remained until his death in 1964.

I think it reads:-

...... constitutional aggravated by stress of campaign ...... capacity assessed 16th ? recommended for treatment in asylum.

It has been a difficult one to read. It has been edited to be in any hope of making sense of it. Many thanks as always.

Lancashire / John Green b 1877 Burnley Help needed
« on: Thursday 31 December 20 13:16 GMT (UK)  »
Hi. Can anyone please help me find John Green. He was born in Burnley on the 20 March 1877 to Michael Green and Ann Donnelly. In 1881 he is living with his mother, who is lodging at 3 Pickup Court Burnley. In 1891 census the family are together at 19 Cow Lane. I have military service records, enlisted 21 May 1895 to the East Lancs Regiment. He was discharged in 1896 for ignorminy. That is where the trail ends, I can find no other information. I have checked Burnley Workhouse records, there is nothing relating to him. If anyone can help it would be really appreciated. Many thanks as always.

Armed Forces / Elihu Moss 9th Lancers
« on: Thursday 25 June 20 16:42 BST (UK)  »
My 3x great grandfather, Elihu Moss, born Bristol 1795 was a soldier in the 9th Lancers from 1813 to 1841. I have a list of Barracks they stayed at during those years. My question, would anyone know if the whole regiment would move, or just fragments of it? I am trying to establish whether he was at Ballinrobe Barracks, Ireland in 1825/26. I have his record of service, it just says served at home. Back then Ireland was included in the UK. His son, Walter Moss born 1835 lists his place of birth as Newbridge, Ireland. The regiment were at Newbridge in 1835. Many thanks as always

Hi. This photo was given to me by my father and has told me they are his grandparents. Which side of the family I am unsure off. Could anyone give me an approximate date to maybe give me the clue I need. There is no photographers mark and the paper is very thin. One set of grandparents were in Bolton, Lancashire, the other Chipping Sodbury, Gloucestershire. Any help would be very much appreciated. Many thanks

World War Two / Liberation of Bergan Belsen
« on: Sunday 07 June 20 16:29 BST (UK)  »
Hi. There is a family story about my great uncle, James Green, who helped with the liberation of the camp. As I know no more info, does anyone know what regiments of the British Army assisted with this? I have no idea what regiment he served with, and with the enormous popularity of his name, itís near impossible to find out. In the hope this may narrow it down somewhat! Many thanks for your invaluable help as always
