Cumberland / Hodgson grave in St Michaels Workington
« on: Monday 25 February 08 19:31 GMT (UK)  »
I visited St Michaels Church Workington,to try and trace my ancestors,Hodgsons and Grahams. Jane Hodgson  b.1823 & John Graham b.1820 were christened and married there .
Janes father Joseph Hodgson was born 1879 Workington.
I found a headstone of the Hodgson family,with all the family names that went on down the generations. I am sure this must be some of my ancestors.
The inscription is briefly... Martha the wife of ? Hodgson of Ron or Rom ( Does anyone know of Ron or Rom ?) who died Jan 19 1762 aged 23 yrs. The stone also mentions a Joseph and Mary Hodgson who's 2 children were buried there. Help needed PLEASE!

Cumberland / Hodgson's & Grahams from Workington
« on: Friday 21 September 07 20:27 BST (UK)  »
My grt grandmother Jane Graham nee Hodgson was born in Workington 1823  I have her baptism entry St Michaels church Workington . Her father was Joseph and her mother Martha.
Josephs occupation was listed as a Waller,can anyone tell me what this was ? Perhaps a dry stone wall builder ?

On a recent trip to the Lakes I visited St Michaels Church, Workington.In the church grounds I found a gravestone of some Hogdson family members,their christian names are the same as Jane's family that I have on 1841 census,( but of about 2 generations previous ) so as names are handed down generations,they could be my ancestors ? Joseph, Mary who died 1777 and  Elizabeth  Help needed please to find any links !

Lancashire / Adams family from Liverpool
« on: Sunday 01 April 07 19:47 BST (UK)  »
 The Adams family originated from Ireland. Samuel Adams was born 1827 in Ireland. He married Jane, who"s maiden name was also Adams. at the Presbyterian Church May St Belfast 1849 Sams father was Hugh Adams and Janes was Henry Adams,we think they were brothers.
The family came over from Ireland in the 1860s. Their children were Hugh Henry,Margaret,Jane, Mary,Agnes and Sarah Ann. 
Samuel died on board the Brig Nellie in St Georges Dock , Liverpool 9 March 1876.
Hugh Henry became a known  and respected independant Methodist minister,preaching at the Hill O Zion,Cochrane St church,Everton.  The church is still standing today, but not used for methodist service now.
I would like to research the family back further and to know more about Sams life as a mariner and where he visited on the Brig Nellie or indeed more information about the ship would be of great interest to us.
 Any help or ideas for reseach would be appriciated.

 Samuel was born in Ireland in 1827 probably in Belfast.He married Jane ,whos maiden name was also Adams, at the Presbyterian Church May St 14 March 1849.
Their children were-Hugh Henry,b.1882 in Belfast,Margaret, Jane, Mary,Agnes,and Sarah Ann. The family moved to Liverpool in 1860s
Samuels father was Hugh Adams born in Ireland, Janes father was Henry Adams. We think the 2 families were linked and Sam and Jane were cousins.
