London & Middlesex Lookup Requests / Frederick Harrison Birth
« on: Tuesday 03 August 10 00:24 BST (UK)  »
Hi everyone.

I'm trying to trace a Frederick Harrison, who we believe to have been born in about 1862/3

Frederick married an Eliza Williams in Liverpool 1891.

On this certificate his father is William Thomas Harrison (Labourer).

On the 1911 census he is listed as living at Tower Road, Birkenhead and is a Dairyman.  He says he was born Islington, London.

The 1901 census he is listed as living on Stewart Street, Birkenhead and is a Milk Dealer.  He says he was born Islington, London.

I have an 1891 census showing him living at Mill Street, Birkenhead as a lodger working as a Milk Carrier. He says he was born London, Shoreditch.

Since then my search has hit an annoying brick wall and I can't seem to find earlier census' where he fits in well. 

Ideally I'm looking to purchase his birth certificate.  So if anyone could help maybe track him down in the 1881 and 1871 census?

Thanks in advance.

Cheshire / Old Map showing Church Road, Tranmere
« on: Monday 19 July 10 23:11 BST (UK)  »
Just wondering if anyone had an old map for Church Road, Tranmere.
On an 1871 Census I have my fourth great grandmother living at 'The Farm' on Church Road.  I know Church Road quite well, but I have googled and googled to see if I can find where abouts on Church Road it might have been and come up with nothing.

Any help would be great.

Thanks in advance.

Lancashire / Toxteth Villa, Halsall Lane, Aughton

Hi, Just wondering if anyone can help me.

I have found on the 1911 Census that my x3 great grandfather lived at Toxteth Villa, Halsall Lane, Aughton.

Does anyone have any idea where abouts this might have been?

I did a random 'google images' search and found this document attached, but I'm not sure if it is linked or not.

Any help would be greatly received.

Many thanks

Reading as:

Margaret Turner - Late Fender - Formerly ??

 I thought it might have been Mather, but I can't seem to find a marriage cert for a Mather/Fender.

Any help is greatly received.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Help with WW2 medals. COMPLETED
« on: Sunday 13 June 10 12:59 BST (UK)  »
I've just been sent a pic of my grandfathers medals.  My Aunt says he was in the Air Force in WW2.  She has told me that one is the George Medal, one is the Burma Star and another is for Active Service.

I was just wondering if someone could tell me which is which and possibly what the last medal was for.

Hopefully the pic helps.

Also, just out of interest does anyone know if medals can be copied?  I would love to have copies of his medals as I know my Aunt won't be passing them down to me.

Many thanks in advance.

Cheshire Lookup Requests / Birth Lookup Mary Alice Turner
« on: Friday 11 June 10 13:05 BST (UK)  »
Born roughly 1893

Married Thomas Williams 8th Feb 1915 (age on wedding cert is 22)
Residence for Mary Alice at time of marriage was 10 Wilkinson Street.

Father is listed (on marriage cert) as Joseph Turner who was a Bricksetter (Journeyman - Accoring to cert)

Mary Alice & Thomas had Laurence Williams in 1921 and on Laurence's birth cert, Mary Alice has called herself Alice.

I have found in the 1901 census a Alice Turner living with (mother) Margaret Turner on 18 Wilkinson Street (same street when Mary Alice married Thomas), but (mother) Margaret is down as a widow and was born in Leeds.  I thought if the father was deceased at time of the marriage then that would be noted on the cert?  Also in this census it says that Alice Turner was born in Birkenhead.

I'm unsure as to whether I should be looking for a Mary Alice or just Alice?

I tried (out of curiosity) to look through further census to see if I could locate Mary Alice's parents before she was born.

And I found that in 1891 they were living in Warwick Street, Birkenhead:
Joseph Turner Age 39 Occupation Bricksetter Born Birkenhead
Margaret Turner Age 38 Born Clifford Yorkshire
Eveline Fender Step-Daughter Age 11 Born Liverpool
James Turner Son Age 11 (months?) Born Birkenhead

Now what seems to fit nicely is that on Thomas Williams & Mary Alice Turner's wedding cert if that one of their witnesses is a Eveline Rimmer.  Now if that was the same girl in 1891 she'd have been about  35 and possibly married?

I'm primarily trying to track down Mary Alice Turners birth certificate and I think I seem to be chasing my tail a lot with this one.  Maybe a second pair of eyes would help me in the right direction. 

Many thanks.

Cheshire / Birkenhead Old Map
« on: Wednesday 02 June 10 21:20 BST (UK)  »
Hi there,

Not sure if this is the right place to post, but I'm looking for an old map of Birkenhead, showing Stewart Street.  I have googled the street and have come up with nothing, so I am assuming the road was demolished or built over. 

Any help, advice or a point in the right direction is greatly received.

Many thanks

Cheshire / Leicester Street, Birkenhead
« on: Wednesday 29 July 09 16:18 BST (UK)  »

Was wondering if this street still exists, or if it's been demolished, if anyone knows what has replaced it.

Any information will be greatly appreciated!


Just wondering if anyone could have a go a restoring this pic please, it's my great grandfather :D
My Aunt scanned this image (I think) and emailed it to myself yesterday, so I have no way of making the scan quality any better.  If anyone could make it a bit sharper, that would be great.

Thanks ever so much, in advance
