Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / Ellen Hughes - dating of photo
« on: Tuesday 27 October 20 00:26 GMT (UK)  »

I would greatly appreciate any help in dating the attached photo please.

It is titled 'Ellen Hughes' and I believe her to be the sister of my Great, great grandfather. She was born in 1861.

I'm thinking she must be about 30 perhaps in this photo, which would place it as having been taken c.1890.

Thanks in advance!

Hi all,

The attached clip is a segment of the 1846 marriage of my x 3 Great grandparents Loughlin Hughes and Anne Dunne, which took place in Portarlington.

It states that Loughlin's place of residence was (interpreted as) 'Emo and Ballintogher', which rings true, however I'm struggling to decipher Anne's place of residence.

Any assistance is much appreciated thanks.


Lancashire Lookup Requests / 1939 Register Lookup request - Nora Hilda Gaffney
« on: Tuesday 14 March 17 11:16 GMT (UK)  »

I was wondering if anyone with access would be kind enough to provide me with any details featured within the 1939 Register entry for one Norah Hilda Gaffney.

The site I am currently subscribed to does not have this collection.

Her son, Laurence. E. Gaffney is also listed within the entry from what the preview says.

I'm particularly interested in the place of residence. I am expecting it to a public house in the Edge Hill area of Liverpool.

Any help much appreciated!



I would be grateful if someone could provide me with the details of the following marriage please:

14 December 1875, St. Nicolas and St. Annes.

GROOM: James Jordan
SPOUSE:    Margaret Black

I am specifically interested in the Groom's Father's calling please.

Occupation Interests / Merchant Seaman record (BT112)-decipher/advice request
« on: Tuesday 16 June 15 00:33 BST (UK)  »

I have just located the following entry within the above Merchant Navy Seaman record series and was wondering if anyone can a.) Decipher the parts I can't and b.) Advise whether further research is possible?

The details are as follows :

BT112/16 Merchant Navy Seamen

First Name: Law
Last Name: Cuddy
Age : 28
Birth Place: Liverpool
Birth County: Lancashire
Place: Liverpool

I believe this may be my x3  Great Grandfather Lawrence Cuddy, (born c.1811 according to 1841 census) who was a Shipwright by trade.

The entry against his name in this record appears to have been recorded in December 1835.

It states he is from Liverpool, Lancs, (although the 1841 census has him as Irish)...and it appears to have the word 'Shamrock' written next? Could this be the name of a ship?

Any clarification would be appreciated and any advice on whether/how I can discover any more on the back of this record would be greatly appreciated.



I wonder if anyone can help?

I am trying to find out when the houses on Maiden Lane, Clubmoor (L13) were constructed, in particular, the run of houses between Finvoy Road and Knocklaid Road (OS E338100 N383205)

From available historic maps I have been able to narrow it down to sometime between 1905 and 1925, as the later map shows a significant increase in property development compared to the much more rural nature of the 1905 map, and features the block of houses in question.

Any information would be greatly appreciated!  :)



I have located an 1837 entry within the 'Reports from Committees, Fictitious Votes (Ireland), Select Committee on Fictitious Votes, 1837-1838' record set on FindMyPast in respect of an ancestor where he is listed within the section subtitled 'Register of Marksmen'.

I would be grateful if someone might be able to advise the context in which the term 'Marksmen' is used here please. Is it, as I am thinking a marksman as in a sharpshooter?


Scotland / McAdam family in Dumfriesshire/Ayreshire - how to progress? 1/2
« on: Thursday 04 June 15 14:26 BST (UK)  »
I would be grateful if anyone could look at my findings so far in relation to the above, as I have reached a point where I could do with an outside perspective to see if I'm on the right track as I've not had cause to venture into the Scottish records previously.

It's quite a read, but I'd be thankful for any input...!
Tracing the ancestry of Alexander McAdam (b. Liverpool 1880, d. Liverpool 1940), I have his family residing in Liverpool from 1911 back to 1871 c/o his parents - Robert and Christina McAdam (formerly Roberts, nee Johnston).

Lancashire / Where is Florence Beatrice Thomas and family pre-1911???
« on: Tuesday 25 November 14 09:11 GMT (UK)  »

Can anyone  help me locate Florence Beatrice Thomas and her family on the available census returns please?

She was born on the 22nd April 1883 in 4 Tattersall Place, Bootle, Lancashire to parents Robert Hughes and Mary Ellen Thomas (nee Peva) and was baptised at St. Peter, Liverpool on the 21 May 1883. Both the birth certificate and baptism record state that Robert was a Joiner by trade.

Robert and Mary Ellen appear to have married in 1881, by virtue of a matching marriage (Registrar in attendance so presuming Catholic).

They had a daughter Elizabeth Ann, baptised at St. Peter, Liverpool on 22 April 1882 (born 21 March) and a daughter Minnie Louisa, also born in Tattersall Place, Bootle on the 23 April 1887.

Florence married Alexander McAdam at St. Mary, Kirkdale in 1907, and was residing in 28 Hector Street, Kirkdale by the time of the 1911 Census with Alexander and their two children Florence Christina and Ann Jane, with the census stating she was from ‘Bootle, Lancs’ [Source Ref: Class: RG14; Piece: 22481]

Working back from here I can find no obvious trace of them and would be very grateful for any assistance please!
