Lancashire / Marie (Maria) Lynch born 1887 Manchester
« on: Friday 09 April 21 22:21 BST (UK)  »
I am looking for my great grandmother on the 1911 census.  She was born in Manchester in 1887.  Her parents were James Lynch (1865) and Maria Eastwood (1864)

She had x 2 children (Marion and Winifred) (father unknown) and then met and married William A Martin and then had a further 3 children (Mary, Noel and Alan).

Any help would be appreciated... :)

Lanarkshire / Margaret Gorrie McGregor? B 1858 Glasgow
« on: Wednesday 07 April 21 21:29 BST (UK)  »
Trying to locate birth / marriage details for a Margaret Gorrie and think maiden name could have been McGregor.

She was born c1858 in Glasgow area and married a James Arthur Parkes around 1879/1880.

Parkes was an army Quartermaster / Captain and they lived in army barracks in Hamilton for a while.

Parkes was from Manchester.

We know Gorrie features in her names as it is on the census and her headstone in Manchester but she called her eldest child Mary McGregor Parkes in 1880 so we were wondering if McGregor was her maiden name??

We cannot find her marriage certifcate but we suspect that Parkes went to Canada for a while so we dont know if they married over there.

« on: Saturday 09 January 21 11:29 GMT (UK)  »
I'm struggling finding relatives in the 1891 census.

Thomas Barnes B 1840 Manchester
Emma (Wife) B 1850 Manchester

Children:
Hannah
Walter
Elizabeth B 20/2/1876 Manchester
1 Unknown child

Thomas had died in 1894  when Elizabeth marries George Almond

Emma is a possible in 1901 census as Boarder in Manchester and definitely 1911 as living with George & Elizabeth again Manchester.

Just wondering where they were in 1901 as a family?

Ive found an Eliza Barnes aged 16 as Servant B Manchester but living down in Devon in 1891 census?

My father in law FX86475 James Parkes (From Manchester) served aboard HMS Avenger when the carrier was sunk on 15/11/1943.

My mother in law has never seen a photo of her dad James so we would appreciate any advice how we could gather further information and ideally although not optimistic of finding a photo of him.

Any info or suggestions welcome......

Lancashire / Shop Keeper Details - Chortlon on Medlock / Longsight, Manchester
« on: Wednesday 18 March 20 14:47 GMT (UK)  »
There was a corner shop on Richmond Grove East in Longsight / CoM in the 60s I believe my granddad used to own / run.

He was called Joe MacKinnon.

I cam across an old photo from 1965 of a corner shop on Richmond Grove East / Morton Street and wondered if that was the one.

Is there any way of finding out such info online folks???

Thanks in anticipation....
