Hi Interested that you used to visit the farm. When would that have been? Who was your dad's friend? My grandmother was born on the farm :)

Hi Hovis. I don't live near Hawarden but have visited a few times. I know Wood Lane as my grandmother was born there. Have you looked into the Sheen family as the name Daniel gets passed down throught the generations. I would be interested if you have any info about the Sheens. Shirley

Hi there, I have Sheens in my family tree too. My grandfather (Jones) had ancestors who were Sheens. Probabaly my X4 Gt Grandmother Margaret Sheen.   :)

Hi Ivor

Are you related to the Weighs? Sounds like it. thanks for the geographical info!
Thanks to the info that Allan has provided I have now found some more children of Joseph and Martha ie Alice, Ellen, Thomas and Joseph (St Chads). I have a Martha Yates in my records, born 18919, but cannot find her on official records now and I cannot remember where I found her 4 years ago. Martha was present at the death of Joseph with a different address to Joseph so I think probabaly a daughter.

Strange.....I'm sure I recall that Barry Sheene's daughter is called Sydney which is a common name for girls in Hawarden!

Hi Brephy,

 Jane Yates was my GT GT grandmother. She worked in service in a house in Liverepool around the time she met and married Edward Weigh. I really don't know why he would have been in Liverpool. I have the marriage certificate which confirms Jane's father is Jospeph. I have a death certificate for Joseph which says Martha Yates was present at death. I assumed that Martha was Josephs's daughter but after what Ivor has said it could have been his wife. I did find Martha Yates (sister) in a workhouse in Liverpool after Josephs death. That's probably all I know. I was not aware of Sarah Yates. I asked Liverpool records office to look up the yates in the Woolton area but they were unable to find anything for me so I gave up looking about 4 years ago. I stumbled across this website which has refreshed my interest. Look forward to your reply - I need to look up Maghull on map.

Hi All

Thank you for the recent news re the Weighs. I will definately look into the Weigh wills when I next go to Hawarden records office. I have traced the Weighs back to the end of the 1500s and have one or two maps old maps the area.By the way has Barry Sheen any significance for Hawarden? I have Sheens from Hawarden in my grandfathers tree.  Shirley :)

Hi Ivor. Jane's father I have as Joseph but was never sure of the mothers name. It may be Martha as Jane's sister was Martha too (died in workhouse :-[). I have them living in Woolton at one point. Not sure how far that is from Maghull? Jane of course married Edward Weigh. Are the Yate's in your family tree?
